Spring 2013 outing - RamJam " Testing"
« on: February 22, 2013, 11:48:28 am »
There is talk of RamJam "testing" sometime this spring. I figured I would open a thread here so we can discuss it and maybe make some sort of plans.

I have not done a lot to the 93 minus getting it mostly road worthy. I need to fix a few more things and steal the 31's off the 91( It has 33's but they are not um trustworthy?  :o  and not fun to drive with down the road at 70  :nono: ) there is soo much more I want to get done to it, but won't be able to until after the 2000 and 91 are finished.

I am open almost any time as long as I get advanced notice, minus easter weekend.

So are we gonna call it Ram Fest  ??  Anyways, General Sam's sounds good just to make it somewhere different.  Maybe some of the guys from RCC can make it.  Seems like several are in the Houston area already.  If I go, it will have to be after April 15 since that will be inventory at work.

I suspect if we put a date on it we can start trying to finish up stuff in time to get running trucks there.  (April 26-28?)  Ernest would love to take his ferd.  I have videos somewhere of his front axle biting the dust mud there.

As usual, I didn't research this date very much.  There doesn't seem to be anything great going on at General Sam's but I don't know about holidays, birthdays, end of the world predictions or anything.  Ernest and I are good for this date as far as we know.  Ernest could possibly have to go to work on a ship at any time and if that happens he will have to be happy with the extra pay.

  So do they pay extra for him to go out with seamen?

I will ask him to be sure but I'm not sure that's the way they phrase it.

Let's assume I haven't made any great mistakes and plan on April 26-28 unless somebody has some real problem now.

Ernest said yesterday, "If it's that far away, I can slow down."

If he goes any slower he will have to back up.  I predict he will have to show up with his tools in action.  (Mechanic tools)

The College Station guys would like to consider moving the location of this trip to Hidden Falls. I would like to spend some time looking at activities we would having at RJ and testing stuff that cannot be done at Gen Sam's.

Don't get me wrong. I like Gen Sam's but it doesn't have the hills.

No problem with me.  It's actually a lot closer.  I was just trying to be a nice guy.   :bs:
