If we do one here, late Feb. or March would probably be best. Still cool temps, fire ants and 'skeeters at a minimum.

I doubt I could make one that soon, but again depending on finances and days... who knows. I would love to come hang out with ya Jack. You down for helping me get that 81 road worthy for my ride back? lol

It's possible. Figure about 4-5 hours there, time to load and tie down, 4-5 hours back. If running when parked, I'll bet we can fire her off. You could fly to Dallas, rent a truck and trailer, and haul it here. We could pre-order filters and fluids to make sure they were here on time. I even have an SX/4 window around here somewhere.

Yeah, thats what I was thinking... she ran excellent when we parked her. I'm sure she will need new rubber... brakes are 50/50... and lets hope the wheel bearings havent frozen up or rusted up too much. That motor ran great with a little blow bye... about 80k original miles on here.

A tune up and some wheels and I would trust her anywhere... with a proper inspection to be sure of course. Most of her issues are cosmetic.

Oh gawd... the woman is going to kill me... however.... tax money this year... hmm... if you do February... do late February... I get paid vacation then, and my tax money should be in... this sounds like it could be very possible my friend.

I would love to make a meet in late Feb. or early March.  I do not think the finances would be there.  Besides I need to make sure Nikki and I take turns on personal trips and such.

I no longer have an AMC Eagle, but I am still a fan.

After our fiasco with the Toyota Corolla I got for my wife I believe I am done with Japanese vehicles.

Dude you are preaching to a choir member that is close to becoming an AMC Minister if you know what I mean.

Brandon, suggest to the wife that she get a couple friends together and go have a weekend at a bed and breakfast. They can gab and cackle, have a break from the daily routine, come home feeling good, then say, "You know, I might like to go to Texas in Feb. or March." Tell her you'll bring home some hot sauce, or bar-b-que or something. Maybe a sack full of pecans. Do ya'll eat pecan pie up there? There's a place within a 15 minute drive that was voted best chicken fried steak in Texas, and they make hamburgers that will make you throw rocks at your momma. I can take you to a couple different places within maybe 30 minutes that have ribs that just melt in your mouth.

Still haven't tried to nail down a date, but it's on my mind.

I've got plenty of family down in Texas, and the food sounds very tempting.  Maybe I can arrange something.  Where in Texas?

I'm about 30-someodd miles North of Austin, about halfway between Leander and Liberty Hill. I'm thinking of a kind of wrenching session for those that bring birds, and folks can camp out here, or stay at hotels in nearby Cedar Park or Georgetown. I'll probably cook some sort of animal on the smoker, we can work on Eagles, I'm thinking about having help to install my low-range transfer case in "the Critter", have campfire's at night for those willing to "rough it", pick some guitar, have some Shiner or brew of choice, and test out some front axles on a couple hills on my land. And I promise, we don't shoot yankees on sight anymore. We'll figure out a way to get those flying in from the airport in Austin to and from the airport.

Maybe NJ will come and camo "the Critter", too.

Save a Shiner (or 2) for jim.  Hopefully the white woody will still be running then.

Will do jim, and you'll be glad to know the attack kitties we had before have moved on to greener pastures. They've been replaced with other, less agresive kitties. You and wondereagle are always welcome, especially if you bring headliner replacement stuff.

Maybe everyone that comes could do a hands on "how-to" on their area of expertise. Need a stereo installed bring it, someone can show us how. Drop a tranny, one of us could show how, and actually do it. We coiuld make a 3 day weekend out of it. Someone have a smashed up front end, I can show you how to replace it, NJ can show how to correct my rattle-can primer job.

Be nice having something close by, specially now that we have several members from New Mexico and Texas, we could provably do something in Ruidoso or Roswell

Yeah Rowell or Ruidoso would be cool with me. They are both nice places, though Roswell doesn't have a whole lot going on there, but then again, when it comes to a vacation, that's sort of the whole point. Maybe we could be a caravan of UFO's (Unidentified Four-wheeling Objects) while we are there. After all nobody knows what our cars are anyways ;) I bet there are some nice four wheelin places in either area. I'll be there, depending upon when I have my surgery.

Also, Mick, since I am located close enough to you, I would love to do yours as well. Maybe we could consider the Ouray/Silverton area, lots of great trails there. If we were feeling really cocky and up for a scary adventure, we could give Black Bear Pass a shot.I hear the Pucker Factor is pretty high, and we might need surgery to get the seat covers out of our butts... Again, this will depend on when I have my surgery, and how far into the recovery from it I am.
