      I don't know about yall.... but for us'ns, its been a very busy year and hasn't stopped yet. PonchoFreek and I got the engine put in 'Lil Red' at least two months ago and I can't slow down long enough to finish the darn thing... working on it today.

      Work has been at light speed since last Bandit Run 2012. I've never figured out how my company is 1/3 the size it was but I'm twice as busy! Comes with the times I reckon and I'm just glad to be employed. I have another management meeting in Dearborn June 9-11, an audit (ISO) coming up June 13th through the 21st and after that hope to finish the Lil Red TA for this year's run.

      Oh, during this busiest of times, we had a grandson! I understand that another couple of Bandit Runners had a grand child as well? scratchchin image

      I am so ready for this run! Everybody drive safe and we shall see ya in Lincoln.

      Anyone else have news besides Solar Gold and his ocean view room in Lincoln?

      Yes it has been a busy year and yes there have been more than a few new grandkids. Now it's time for the Bandit Run. I think we have a great trip lined up to part of the country we haven't seen before. The Firehawk is ready to go except for clean up and polishing wheels. One month from today we should be partying in Lincoln.

      Air is good, might need a heater too----and maybe some fire protection. I keep looking at 2nd gens but I think I'll stick to the 4th gens. GTO club show this weekend, I guess my 65 is a no gen.

      Anyone looking at the site seeing tours in South Dakota.

      Yes AC is very important. Not sure if lil red is still charged up from last year but will soon find out. When I was there last fall in Rapid City, there was much to do and see so I haven't given much thought to the guided tours. Looking so forward to this run again.

      I think there are a lot of things to do, it's a matter of not wasting time tellin stories and loafing

      Sounds like Debbie has so much planned, there won't be much loafing time. smile image. I took some great photos of the area last fall but haven't had the time to download and post. We'll be making new photos before too many more nights.

      We keep carrying those cameras around but it's really tough to find film and it's really expensive to have it developed. We have a bunch of 8mm film just sitting around waiting on a film processor-----guess I'll have to use my cell phone.

      Just finished installing LED front turn signals. Darn 4th gens burn through bulbs and sockets way too quick---too big a bulb in too little a heat sink. Also, changed belts. The main belt looked like new but the little AC belt that you can't see was shot.
