Planning vacation schedules and was wondering if anyone has heard if Terry from the Rambler Ranch is doing the Eagle Meet this year? ::)

I haven't heard anything from Terry on this.  I know after the last one he talked about how much work it was to put it together.  His place got hit really bad by a hailstorm last year too.

Terry's partner, Greg, died this morning. I don't know what if any impact this will have on this years gathering.

I thought I would revisit this thread, and find out if anything will be happening this year. Anyone know if a run/meet is planned?

He has done them every "even" number year in the past so I wouldn't expect anything this year.

I think he may have done a small gathering with close friends and family. I don't know if he was up to the task of organizing a large gathering with all he had going on at that time.

That is my understanding also.  I know those cruises are always a lot of work for Terry, especially as the number of cars grew!

I was hoping he would have the TurboDiesel wagon finished soon, and I would drive it on the cruise. Last I heard (2014?) it was soon in line for restoration.
