Sunday's festivities started at the hotel for a last minute shine up of the trucks before departing for Eagle Creek Park. I was set as the leader of the drive because I knew roughly where we were going to. As we departed with my truck in the front, I was giggling like a young child on Christmas morning. I was so tickled to be the front man for this beautiful row of trucks that I couldn't hardly concentrate on the task at hand (keeping the trucks together and getting us there in one piece). I now know what pace car drivers feel like its an exciting time but also a little nerve racking as well. I wish I could have taken a picture of the view in my mirrors, it was just gorgeous! We arrived at the park and checked in for the day, arrival at the rented area was disappointing at best, because of park policies we didn't get a parking lot all to our selves, Mark and Garri and I spoke to the lady at the gate and she brushed us off, so thinking as we had done all weekend long we took matters into our own hands and made a parking area of our own! :-) This actually worked out pretty well, it wasn't what Garri and I had discussed on the phone and not what Garri had in mind when he reserved the place but we were both pretty much lied to so we did it our way. The show and barbecue(excellent food, my complements to the chef!) went well, it was basically new friends discussing our common interest. Then when it was mostly over we were handed Trophies and Dash plaques(both items were very nice and will look great sitting on our shelves). Then we departed that area for pictures of the trucks as a group in a large open field in the park (ahh the money shot!). After the pictures were taken everyone headed in their separate ways. :-(
that's it Friends.
SEE YOU ALL NEXT YEAR!
