Well I finally finished out the High Sierra Forum meet trip report. What a great time we all had so take a look if you want:
2014 High Sierra forum meet
But thought I'd dovetail another meet that a few members made as well.
Ray (1der) and Terry (Tallt65) and my buddy Don decided to meet up in the central valley for lunch the other day. Although Terry wanted to attend the high Sierra forum meet, SMB just couldn't get his van out of production in time. Nevertheless, we had our own little mini meet that was fantastic. I contacted my Don from Merced who's remolding my house & asked him to attend. Besides, Don was a major player at the 2014 high Sierra forum meet. Not only was the food great, Terry was able to meet Ray, Don, and myself for the first time. All of us look forward to having Terry show during some future off road adventures.
His brand new van took me back to 2005 when mine was delivered. You can't beat that "new van smell"
Ray had Ramsey rebuild his suspension system and after that Ray gave me a call suggesting we meet up on his way home. The meet was set and Livingston CA seemed to be a good spot...besides there is a great Mexican restaurant in town worth visiting. I contacted Terry to see if he also wanted to attend and he was more than willing to show off his new rig. Terry, Don and I live close to Livingston.
Here are some pics of our mini meet:
We had a great lunch. Ray texted a picture of us eating lunch to Robb (Rallypanam) and Rob responded "Dave without a beer?"
Sorry you missed this one Robb.
It's nice to welcome a local to the group. Nice van Terry, I'm ready for some off road adventures and I'm sure Ray will be as well. We all had a great time. Don was the resident photographer.
