Yah, NOBODY needs a speeding ticket!

The weather window has totally opened up now, so we should be ok, the whole south is supposed to be good weather.

thanks for the seat belts Byron, I just got them washed and installed this afternoon. With the webbing slightly swollen with water...I could NOT move the buckle...holy cow.... got ok when they dried.

Byron is going to pickup his brother, so we will leave the plant at 5:30 sharp, and head out our usual route, Alex Fraser to # 10, then out through Langley to #1, and on to Hope.
Matt and I wil, be at the plant by 5:00, to get the car rolled out.

Just checked weather for tommorrow, going to be 30+ for Merritt and Spences Bridge

make sure you have water to drink for the day, so you do not get too dehydrated

I will meet you guys either along the #1 or in Hope. Are we meeting at the usual Chevron on the Old Hope Princeton & 6th Ave?
Or the one along the #1?

So the newer Chevron, on the Hope Princeton side of town...
There's just more room to park us all until we leave.

I think we should just grab some fast food, or, bring your own lunch, to eat in Merrit?! Due to the distance we are traveling, going to Boston Pizza would just take to long, with our large group.

Car's almost ready. And I've got a head start already, I'm sleeping in Chilliwack! See you at Exit 123.

Anyone giving Malcolm a wake up car tomorrow? Hahaha!

I'll give Malc a call tonight. I talked with Aron earlier today, he's going to meet up with me at the Sumas interchange at 6am, we'll likely be there about 10 minutes early to catch Bert, McShagger and the Malkinator. I'm going up the other side of the river to pick up Shawn in Maple Ridge at 5:30, and will head out through Mission, across the Matsqui prairie and hook up to the #1 at Sumas.

See you all in the am.

well that was an awsome day
, it was nice leaving early. there was no traffic untill the afternoon, like 2:30
but then it was grid lock on the number one, I think there was an accident.
other than that it was a fantastic day. we had 11 510's 2 Toyotas and a Fiat,
and there were no real problems, everyone just had a great day of driving,
I don't have any pictures myself, other than crapy cell phone pics. but i'm sure some will be posted soon.
