I'm kinda partial to the overall look.. I do wish the truck was a 3/4 ton with a diesel, but it'll serve me fine..

That's the only way to tie them down... much easier than trying to climb under the front of a lowered car.

I have a feeling you're really going to enjoy this trip with that trailer in tow. Last year was a little crazy..

Yeah, I am more comfortable with the tow package, but traffic is a little more nerve wracking... You try to leave a safe following distance and every d*** head on the road tries to parallel park in front of you...

Thanks, got several thumbs ups on the road today... That was kinda cool... We can coordinate if you like when you get ready to purchase, and I'll pick it up for you and meet you halfway...

I wish you were here...

So, we made it to Rockwall Texas where we are stopping for the night... We'll have dinner with Camaro21, firefighter1, happy Pappy, whom I traveled up here with and some others...

Getting the party started...

I used to haul my horse trailer quite a bit and that drove me crazy! You cannot brake hard with horses back there. Good luck!

I am very excited to see you and your car (and your trailer/truck) at the fest!

If I could figure out how to get my truck, trailer and car through the airport x-ray machine, I might have flown as well... It would be a lot less stressful...
Festcation day two is down...
