OMG What a day yesterday was.
After getting at 4am to get the food started i spent the day getting the decks and yard cleaned up from all the pollen and getting things set up.
Jim & Linda were suppose to get in from Daytona about 3:30.
About 2:00 he calls and says he is having car trouble 1 1/2 hours away and may need help but is going to try something 1st. Fast forward to about 3:45 i leave my house with the trailer to go get them and the car. Drive 1 1/2 hours, load up his car and begin the journey to my house. 1/2 hour down the road i get flagged down by a passing car. We pull over to find i am missing a tire & rim on the trailer. The person said it came off 10 miles ago and we didn't even realize it. Luckily we were 5 miles from Eds house but we were just past his exit on I-10. I decide to back all the way down the on ramp as the alternative would have required and additional 10 miles on a wounded trailer. We make it to Eds house without issue and leave Jims car and my trailer there and finish the trip home. I guess a bearing seized and got so hot it just melted the metal until it just flew off.

That was not cool at all. Glad nobody or thing got hurt. There is usually a few break-downs during a meet weekend. Everyone is always willing to jump in a help out. Here's hoping the rest of the weekend goes well for all.

I would like to thank everyone that made the trip to join us for a great event yesterday. There may not have been many Monte's in the parking lot but we did have 16 people at breakfast and 3 more later in the day for BBQ. While i was so busy having fun it slipped my mind to take many pictures. Craig & Lori had their camera so hopefully they took some to share. We came to realize there were many firearm enthusiast in attendance so we were able to include some target practice as well. The wooden Gingerbread man didn't stand a chance.

Glad to hear Steve.


I have to give a BIG thanks to everyone for the generous donations to the food fund & all the help. From getting the smoker ready on Saturday, setting up the food, pitching in to put everything away after we ate and cleaning up.
Special thanks to Jim, Linda, Dustin & Melody for helping me this morning putting the rest of the outdoor stuff away.
It may be small things everyone did but it allowed me to have more time to spend with everyone.

The biggest thanks has to got out to Liz. Besides her being open to having our house & weekend being totally consumed by this event she is also a huge help during the prep phase.

Already looking forward to next year!

I know where it is and have driven through it. My engine was machined and built there. Not familiar with street names.
