OCTOBERFAST 2016

IT'S THAT TIME AGAIN, TIME TO BLAST OFF INTO THE FALL COLOURS FOR ONE LAST DRIVE.

I am putting forth for October 1 or 2nd. Then, our alternate will be after the long weekend, October 15th or 16th.

We will cross the Border and head for Fort Casey, via Chukanut Drive and return via the old Hwy 99 up to Sumas, or cut over to Aldergrove.

Weather of course will be the determining factor

That was a great drive last year. I'm in. I got my diff back today and will be putting the car back together tomorrow and going for a drive up to earl's cove for a shakedown.

I'll have to do some fancey footwork - I singed myself up for a Beavers/Scouts fun raiser that day - I get to sit at a local Autoparts store and sell apples - we pull in quite a bit at head locations with the kids in full uniform. Then on the 15th, I have a bottle drive with the same group!

I'll see what I can swing, I want to do this drive as I've missed all Fort Casey runs to date!

On those weekends, depending on weather, we can try to fit you in, what day on the 1st or 2nd?

The 2nd and 16th I'm open, fund raisers are on the Saturdays.

I am good for the 2nd. The 16th doesn't work for me.

I'm good any day. My car is back in one piece so I'm going for a short shakedown before I put her back on the lift and check everything before I take a longer drive tomorrow.

Id say I have a 50% chance of coming pending the day. Need to firm up some plans for another day trip the same weekend. It would be great to get out and meet some Datsun Folk. After a year of Engine rebuild headache, I'm finally 300km Into my break in, and this would be a great way to get a few more km in!

Yah, Sunday looks rainy..but...it is a week away.

This would be a good break in drive, lots of variable speeds, etc.

What the hell happened...? How in hell did they back into you? That is too bad Norm, to say the least.

Sunday looks to be rainy anyhow, we need a 100% weather window.
