Question Gtg?

I have not been able to submit anything for the last few days because I have been unable to sign on from my home computer (my pathetic excuse for not checking in for a week). Word of advice... DONT CHANGE YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS WITH THE SITE!! I changed it, and now I can only sign on from my work pc for some reason.... ┐ sent a PM to Mil1ion... waiting for a reply┐

Anyways, I recieved an email from one of our fellow patrons asking when the next GTG will be... now seeing that we've yet to actually GTG, this sounded like a pretty good idea. So, would you guy's (and gal's) like to get together sometime soon for a meet and greet? If so, where and when would you like to do so?

Now here is the kicker though, I am on a VERY busy work schedual, I will post my hours, and encourage you to do the same so that we can all agree on a time in which the most people can attend.

So let's have it, where would you guy's like to go to gtg? Here are my hours:
Sat./Sunday 6:00 am-4:30pm, Monday 9:00am-8:00pm, and Tuesday 9:00am-10:00pm. Leaving me with only three day's off (but only two days inwhich I am able to have a late bedtime, hehe). Thursday is the best for me, but I can roll with a late weds. too. Fridays have to be early nights for me (10pm or so) because I have to be up a 4:30 to get to work on time.

Also, Mark (Whitenight) is also on a weekend shift, and I cannot imagine him being able to stay out too late on the weekends. But, I know that most of you work a regular shift, and it's difficult for you guy's to gtg on the weekday's. So let me know, and we'll try to work something out.

Stan

i dont have an actual work schedule, work when the boss has work. most fridays i am off, so thursdays would be good for me too. i can probably make it a 50 or so mile drive oneway and get home in case i have to work the next day.

somebody pick a day and lets go for it, as long as it aint this weekend. i am leaving sat. morning at 4:00 for the showme f100 show in branson and i think truckgirl is going up also.

Yea Jim, I'm going to the F100 show. Hope to meet you. I'll be wearing my FTE t-shirt. Grand lake is a great place to GTG. Fort Gibson would be great too. I'm off on weekends, but anytime is OK with me. As long as I get to play trucks! If nobody decides in the next few days, I'm just going to post a date and you can show up if possible. I'll bring the pop! By the way, Taxxis, I won my division at the Humbug days. Sorry I missed you. Gotta go home now and get my baby ready for the weekend. Later!

Question

Okay, so I THOUGHT that there was a way to add a poll to this thread, but perhaps not. So, we all want to GTG sometime and meet each other, and we've kicked around a few different places. So, please post what day/time that would work out the best for you. Also, how about meeting at one of the lakes, i.e. Oologah or Ft. Gibson?? Maybe cook us up some hotdogs or hamburgers? Now I would say we could do some BBQ or something, however, I am not all that good at cooking, BBQ atleast (but I make a MEAN chicken parmesien, maybe another GTG ), but if somebody has a good recipe' or something, and would like to volunteer, that would be great.

My best time would be Thur. evening, and I am game for either lake. I may also be able to swing a Sat. evening too, but I don't get off 'til 4:30.

So post you best available time!!! I would like to do this within the next 3 weeks or so!!


BTW: Truckgirl... congrats on the humbug show. You deserve every award you get, that is a beautiful pickup that you have, I love the color. I wish I would have known who you were when I saw you at the Shelby meet, I mean, I walked right past you right after you made your run and where getting out of your truck (and pulling the helmet off!!! But don't worry, I won't start on the hair!!! hehe )

You're SOOOOOO funny, Traxxis! Truth is, it doesn't look much better when I'm not racing! Too bad we didn't gtg this weekend. The chebbie is in Missouri at a self bow building jamboree. I don't have any plans except cleaning my house and working on plans for my car show. BORING!!!!!! Seiously though, if anyone can come to the cruise in Miami, I'm pretty sure they have a Ford truck category. We make up our own trophies for this cruise. Pretty interesting. Call me if you plan a gtg as I don't always get to be with my computer. My no. is 1-918-244-1283. Had to give up the beast today. See ya'll soon!

Why not do this thing at Grand Lake. That way we could possibly get a few truckers in from MO, KS & AR. Let me know and I'll find the perfect spot. Just an idea. Picked up my Ranger Friday. They put 30+ miles on it after they changed my oil. Are they supposed to do that? Just curious. Also, when we have the gtg, do we want to make registration forms and name tags to keep track of everyone, or just play it by ear? Let me know.

Oh, I just kind of figured we would just play it by ear. I figure we'll all decide before what to bring for food. Once again though, my main concern will be time. When CAN the majority of us get together?? I just wonder if we would be able to spend much time together if we went to the lake on a weeknight??



As far as the 30 miles, uh... I for one would be calling them up asking how those miles got there, unless of course it was returned to you with a full tank of gas??

Hmmmm.....A weeknight might make it hard to get a large group together. At least for those that work days, Mon-Fri.(myself included.) A get together at Grand Lake would be at least a 1.5hr drive from Tulsa. It wouldn't leave much daylight.

I was wondering about Skiatook Lake. There's lots of parks and shoreline area and with all the new construction(golf course, new homes, and planned developments) it might give the 4 wheel guys/gals a place to play? It's a 10min drive from Owasso and probably a 20/25min drive from South Tulsa?

I work Mon-Fri, 7:30am-4pm. Off on Saturdays until Aug23.
