Thanks for sharing that info Bob, it explains a lot! I hope she wasn’t as “salty” with you as she was in the parking lot that afternoon!

For the record, my trailer wasn’t damaged, just scooted over about a foot. The BWM- looked like a giant can opener went down the passenger door.

She was a little salty, but not too bad. I'm not sure what she was thinking when she pulled out...

Jeff,  do you know if they video'd the engine build at all?  I was thinking they did, but maybe not...

I had not seen Derek Redmond's documentation of the event . .  (a few posts above) . .

Wow  . .  very nice!

Real reason for this post  . . .  have dates been set for 2109?     Time to start reserving vacation at work,  and May calendar is filling up at our company.     I would like to get mine blocked out before too late.

Gee Jeff, where is your optimism? Cool  The spring show is always a challenge for me to make it. It always falls around the last week of school and we are not allowed to take any days off during the last five days. This year, there are five full days after the show, so it might be possible to make it.

Any plans for off-roading with the Reunion? I know Jeff was typically the driving force behind the wheelin' portion. Anyone else stepping into the breach?

'48 CJ2A

'56 DJ3A

'79 CJ7

And two of them actually run!

If y’all hold the 117th annual reunion on May 17-18, i’ll be there, but it’s highly unlikely that you will see me. 😉

I have always felt that I have some type of dyslexia,  (this kind of thing happens a lot to me) . . I did mean 2019 of course.  Smile
