What a great weekend! Thanks to Mark (General Gow) for flying out from Boston and co-piloting down. I just got the coupe registered on Wednesday after we got back from KCI, so we trailered it down to Joplin through the scenic flint hills of Kansas. Thanks to Tom (T-squared, HAMBcharger dodge) and Mr. Jim (lurker) for having my back on the haul down, and for getting us to the swap and back, and letting me drive the HAMBcharger a bit on the poker run. And a hundred other things. Thanks to everyone for helping me with my throttle linkage on the coupe in the Ramada parking lot Friday; Kerry, Raven, Choprods and others. Thanks to the Poker Run squad. What a great time! Thanks to the guys that helped me get the points in my pick-up Saturday, I made it home ok, but the Woody Combs Special might need a heart transplant. Thanks to everyone on the compliments on my coupe. I more than met my goal of having it there, since I got to make 3 passes at the strip. One against my good buddy Jeff (highboy32) with his flatty powered 32 5 window he drove down from Omaha. Thanks to my HAMB family I got to see again this year. Denise, Aaron, Nick, Kerry, Raven61, Greg, Fiddy, Roadstar, El P, Greezy, BobK, Kevin, Ryan, Jim Marlatt, and so many others! Thanks to the HAMBers I got to meet this year: FatAbone, Dirty2, Dirty31, KCMongo, 40studedude, Rashy, 35pickup, heavyTLC, stan292, DW, and tons of others! Thanks to everyone else that came from all over. It was great to see such a great turnout. Thanks to Ryan and crew for putting on such a kick-ass event. And if you didnt go- thats ok, hopefully we will see you next year! I know I will be there.
