In the new Diesel Power magazine, they have the 51 diesel events you can't miss in 2010... our GTG didn't make the list. I guess only reason is because we missed the cutoff for the magazine to go to print. :D
What do they Know!:nono:
Forest I'll tally up the attendees later this eve when I get a chance. I believe it's 5 'for sure' and 4 'maybe'. You will want to come and drool over those giant logs you know you want to split...):h

I just checked the map, and figured that if I left Sycamore at 11 (when the GTG starts), and drove home to go to my cousin's graduation party, I could get there as its starting at 1800 ET. So...I think I'm going to have to turn this GTG down. Sorry! I would still like to meet whoever I can...I just can't do it that weekend. Hope ya'll have fun!

Ok guys, here's some good news. The DTR travelling oil can is on it's way to me so we will be (finally) able to add our names after all this time.

I'm adding a map that includes the area as well as a couple of aerial views to show where it's at. The house is a log home with a short driveway all the way at the top of a rise but the drive to take to the barn area is next to it (west side) and longer. When you come up on it from the west you gotta look quick because the road side is all pine trees. From the east you won't see it. I'll put a little TTS sign out by the drive that morning.
More details as we get closer. Looking forward to it!

OK guys, let's get a head count. I'm just gonna do cheeseburgers, couple of kinds of chips, pickles, condiments and a snacker or 2. Bring your drinks and a lawn chair. Of course the travelling DTR oil can will be there to sign too.

You know you can count me in Mike. Been keeping an eye on the weather as well for Saturday and it's looking better and better as we get closer to the weekend. They are calling for 68 and partly sunny. Perfect weather for some boys to sit around and BS for an afternoon...:grouphug:
