    Default 2019 TX MV Rally

    This years rally will be March 22-24. I have booked the off road ranch again. I will post more details as I get them. I look forward to seeing everyone again this year.

    For those that have not yet attended, here's some general information.


    We camp at the Brazos Valley Off-Road Ranch ( http://www.brazosvalleyoffroadranch.com ). The gaits will open Friday evening, March 22 (nofearnohope will let us know what time). Folks generally filter in all evening and sometimes late into the night. We'll get up Saturday morning, March 23, for a convoy to the Museum of the American G.I. ( http://americangimuseum.org/events/l...story-weekend/ ). We typically have a police escort for the convoy. After spending the morning at the museum, we'll return to camp mid-afternoon to enjoy the off-road ranch. This may include trail rides, mud pits, vehicle repairs, etc. There's usually a bonfire Saturday night with great company and, maybe, a few tall tales. Everyone usually departs for home Sunday morning.


    Camp:
    We dry camp in a field. That being said, there is a building at the camp site with bathrooms and electricity. You can buy lunch at the museum on Saturday. Otherwise, plan for and bring all of your meals and camping supplies.

    Camping (including use of the off-road ranch) costs $10 per family per night. Please bring cash to pay nofearnohope.


    Buy / Sell / Trade:
    Feel free to bring anything you want to sell or trade to the off-road ranch. We'll probably have a separate "buy /sell / trade" thread as the event gets closer. To sell items at the museum, you must be a registered vendor. If that's something you want to do, please contact the museum directly ahead of time to register.

    I'm 50/50 depending on what condition this next truck arrives in. It's on the boat floating this way..

    Open to all? If so, I will put in for vacation. I work nights so only 1 day of vacation, get up at 1400 on Friday, motor out for 3 hours and should meet all of you on Friday afternoon. Barrman will vouch for me

    My M1031 is highway ready with new 255 Cooper Maxx STs yet to be taken off road. Might even have the air conditioning working, if I can source some 140+ amp alternators.

    Keith can be allowed in to the open for all Rally.

    He has a CUCV shop truck and knows how to use it.

    And it now has oxyacetylene, a proper Milton inflator with gauge and fully functioning PTO generator. I do both kinds of arc welding, SMAW and GTAW (an homage to The Blues Brothers). I splurged on a Metabo die grinder so the truck has two angle grinders, an air die grinder and an electric 1/4". Two drills, two air impacts with sockets, a RoboTool, ball joint press, recovery gear, 12 pound sledge hammer and enough junk to fill every compartment. Need to bring my fastener sets and rod vaults with some patch metal.

    This is why it now has air lift suspension.

    Don't forget the electric cab air conditioner too! You will fit right in with this group Keith.

    By then, it should be variable speed compressor . I ordered the variable speed control from a vendor in China. They did a switcharoo on tracking numbers with another order going to Hildago Texas. So I informed them of the error and they are sending another. I might just get two.
