T minus 5 day till departure......

<font color=blue>Howdy! On saturday I will be leaving for 2 weeks[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/shocked.gif[/img], I'm going to TheDieselPages Rondeavous in Moraine Ohio with Dad and Mom and my Brother and sisters, It's about 2500 miles each way from Seattle! Anyway I don't know why I'm making this post, I'm just board, And thought I'd post now, Instead of dropping a bombshell on friday[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]. We will be seeing a tour of the new Duramax Diesel plant, In addition to a tour of the plant that makes 6.5's, And there's some other stuff to do also. We're also kinda hopeing that maybe we'll get the distance award[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]. Also along the way, We're also going to go to Mount Rushmore, And drive through Yellowstone, And on the way back on september the 15 We're going to stop in Palouse(sp?) Washington, Where some local bommerangers, Are doing a demonstration for Palouse's local newspaper the Boomerang![img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img] As part of their yearly fall parade/festviel. Al in all it ought to be a fun coupla weeks! I think I'll post our route if anyone is interested, And if I can find out what it is from dad[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]. I'll just wrap this up now then. Laterz.</font color=blue>

So close yet so far. Have fun! Be sure to check out Mt. Rushmore. It's cool. I drove up it on the way home. Really, right over the top. Randy spotted me.

<font color=blue>Yes poor poor dad[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img], He shall likly go insaine[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]. But of course dad is the one who hasen't been on more than a weekend camping trip, In more then 5 years, So I suspect dad may enjoy himself more than he is letting on[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img].</font color=blue>
