We won't be making it this year. It is happening at the same time as a long-planned family trip. Next year for sure though! We'll still take those drag links if you like though. We can always use more. I did send a ton of stuff down there though. Seems like it was close to $800 in merchandise for the raffle.... so we're there in spirit :^)
For Brandon, I actually hired 3 more full time staff members a couple weeks ago and our phone situation has really been improved. Finally getting a grip on these 'small business growing pains'!
They will not be at the Melt, neither will Calmini or Spidertrax. Spidertrax is in the process of moving, and has expressed their disapointment in not being able to be present, however they do have several vehicles (customers) that is packing a lot of their equipment that will be present. As far as I know, only me (NCO) and Tim Porter (Hardcore 4X4) will be there. We will be on the hill together, and I am bringing a nice big canopy tent to set everything up in for both of us. See you at the Melt!
I hope you guys can make it out next year, looking forward to swapping a beer sometime, and getting to know you, likewise, we hope to head out west to one of your events. I am glad to hear of your additions to the staff, we are going through the same pains now.
