I don't know about a bull horn but I bet there will a lot of Bulls--t by Sunday morning. Here come the assorted nuts and all the fun that goes with them. We should be 9 to 10 deep. Beer, Grill plan to stay all weekend. Any other groups caravanning
The Sock Fuckers will be out in force. I hear they're even bringing a damn Canadian.
Time to pack...10 hours until I get up, get gone and get south...
Sock Fucker Caravan -

Loaded up and ready to go, pulling out in the morning, can't wait!
Just about half the bikes loaded so far...

Just talked with Snowman and he is ready. Might even see the 41 go down the track . Anyone one else in the Myrtle beach, NMB , Surfside , garden city want to caravan we are meeting at the Aynor Bojangles at 8am on 501. The more the merrier . We might be 12- 15 deep .
Wow! You fellows are rolling hard this year!! I wish everybody a safe trip!
Whew! Just got finished with 24 hour THRASH to get new trans in--discovered wounded unit in nick of time! Loading up soon as battery is charged and lighting out tomorrow am--see ya'll there!
I will be the guy that smells like toasted trans fluid from head to toe--Input shaft looked like a barber pole it was twisted so much --found that by accident--had BBQ'd the insides Oh well!! She good now!!!
Loaded up and ready to roll!!! Looking forward to seeing everyone!!!
Same here at the beach.Gonna meet up with the Nuts in Aynor. Snowman
BGII is on the trailer, the truck is loaded and hooked to the trailer. All I gotta do is pack a few clothes in a bag along with my toothbrush, etc. and head out in the AM.
Still at work...'til 11pm. Then, tomorrow...it's ON!!!
Those involved in the caravan heading out from Aynor get the unofficial official caravan participant sticker ! Thanks Scott for the support ! Hate you will miss the trip .
Andy, I made them reflective this year. I think a few Nuts got lost on the 3am Johnny House run last year. Just take a flashlight a shine it down the fence line...
What time you heading out tomorrow? I am leaving VR around noon'ish in the ModelA . I don't need no stinking top! Should be at SIM around 4. Looking forward to seeing everyone again. Let the fun begin!
Check the TV spot out :
Looked like they showed the Southern Flyer using the wall as ballast
Have a blast everyone! Damn I wish I was going..
Lets roll out
Woody, I'm planning to leave about 08:30-09:00, hoping to get there around 13:30 -14:00. It's a 4 1/2 hr. drive plus stop for lunch and mabe a piss break or two.
Cool video Tony.
Leaving out just after lunch...see you there!!!
We sold our house so I'm stuck moving stuff to storage this weekend and can't make it. Hope you guys take plenty of pics.
Great event this year...Drags, swap meet and 100's of cars.

Steel in Motion is quickly becoming the "Too Big For Union County Dragway meet"
This is from the top end of the track back towards the front at ~10:30AM this morning:
So awesome to see a show that "gets it" do so well . . . so hats off to Curtis and the Geargoyles CC for doing the prep and leg work to make this thing work every year and the track/crew for having the track surface on kill.
Now for my crap pictures on my potato phone before the heavy hitters get back and edit theirs
Friday night: The campsite/hangout for the SFCC and crew

Saturday morning (killer olds, partial to the color combo )
Southeast Gasser guys:
Dirty Old Man (Dave) spittin serious game
Had a blast! My second year, Definitely yearly from now on. Gotta find some helper springs and a sway bar for the back of the truck though. I think I did a million little burnouts every time I hit a big bump on 85/77...and there are a bunch of them in a lowered truck. That's what I get for trying to load up for comfort camping. The full Yeti didn't help much either. But a good, non eventful trip from Roanoke to Union and back.
The show tripled in size of crowd since last year!
