I am sure there will be others as they get posted.  I have a few pictures.  If I can find where I put my camera.  Mpeing did post a few teasers already.  We have the annual, never ending Mavericke stories.  Maybe he will share them.

Jessie and I nick maned Kirsten "The Merciless Meping" after she cut off Hawken.  So that's where the "Merciless" came from.

She had some steering shaking at around 55.  I am not sure if it was figured out but many of us had a look at the front suspension/steering.

Yeah the front end was quite tight.  The play in the steering wheel is in the box, and not something I would be overly concerned about. She does need bigger tires though.  Just read the shaking at 55 post.  Could be tires out of balance.

I was thinking tires too.  I think we only spotted one wheel weight on the inside of one of the wheels -- passenger side if I remember correctly.

Thanks Brandon.  I think you can click on each image and add some narrative.  I am not sure about that though.

Ok I will try tonight.  The banner looks like it fits the HQ well.

Jim and I got home at 9:46 this morning.
We didn't have any start up problems with the Eagle on the way.
All went well with it.
We unloaded it and took it to the shop to get the airconditioner fixed.
Then from there across the interstate to Wal Mart to get lots of groceries.
Now here I sit like I didn't have anything else to do until bed time tonight.
Some time between now and then all that stuff we threw on the bed will have to come off so we can crawl in.
Jim is some where doing something.
Well I just went to the kitchen and Jim is in the storage trailer under the car port.
I will leave him to play in that all by himself.
We sure did have a great time with everyone. I am glad everyone got home safe.
Thanks for all the help we got.

I'm not sure Doug... I didn't really notice much of a difference... she seemed to have a very very slight almost not noticable increase in hp going up hills... but I still don't think it's right. I'm going to snap a picture of it and post it for Jurjen to see to make sure it's right and then I still need to replace that center coil wire.

Hey WonderEagle... it was great to see you guys again - I had hoped to say my farewells properly, but again - I thought we were all getting up for breakfast... in three Meets, I actually got up early (7:30am) and nothing was going on. I don't even have proof. *sigh*

Next year, I'm stealing everyone's keys LOL!

Not yet, I wanted to hang it in the barn on the big open wall... but I'm not out there much yet... so I don't want it hanging where I can't see it, LOL!

I'm hoping it will fit on the wall that Shelly said i could paint... then it can hang there until the shop is done and then I'll paint the wall.
