Default Live From Joplin!



Holy hell! The Drags are tomorrow! I think everything is in place. I don't think I'll screw up anything too badly. Fingers crossed! In any case, you can follow my trials and tribulations on the forum - I'll be testing a new version of the TJJ...

Have a great and safe event! The HAMB Drags are on my bucket list one of these years.

Oh sure Ryan, bring out a new version of the iPhone ap when us Droid users are still waiting our turn.

Did you send the warning to the city so they can advise the general population of "another disturbing event"...????

My heart goes out to all of those Joplin Folks. My Mother was Born there in 1903,
Her maiden name was Gipson. I know I have a lot of shirt-tail relatives there.
Wish I could be there.

Going truckless but I will challenge HRLC to a 10' foot race. Ice cream to the winner.
