Couldn’t bring an exotic, so the XC740 it is 😜

What a weekend. We're home and unpacked. Time to catch a few hours sleep before heading out to SAC tomorrow.

I hope everybody had half as good a time as I did. This weekend is consistently one of the highlights of the year for me.

Made it home without any car troubles today. Thanks to all who pitched ideas, flowed solder, and threw fuel pump relays my way. It still runs not quite 100% at WOT, but it starts/idles/runs OK otherwise and got me where I needed to go.

It was nice meeting everyone. Thanks for the hospitality, great food, and great company. It's always great to sit and BS with such an eclectic group of gearheads. Can't wait till next year!

Had an amazing time. A much needed vacation too. Really really had a blast playing in the woods this year with all the off-road guys. I'm glad i didnt take the stock v70 T5 out on the drive as I cooked the bearings just going for a quick drive with towery. Lots of whirring from the front on the way home around 60mph lol. Oops.

RWD volvo and a bottle of bleach next year!

Huge thanks to the Gants for putting this together each year. That is some seriously pretty countryside in the mountains.

I had a big time as always. A highlight was taking a ride in Sam's 2JSwede wagon. Super cool.
Many thanks to Jared and Baleigh for all the hard work before and after the meet.
I was really pleased with the way the new fryer made cooking 10 lbs. of fries relatively easy and to say the smoker performed WAY above expectations is an understatement. We're now down to fine tuning our cooking setups.
I'm already looking forward to next year.

I guess I need to re-title my build thread to "Get this POS ready for MountainMeet 2019"
I'm glad that a good time was had by all and everything went well. Congrats to everyone involved (especially Jared)!

Every year I've said I'm going to bring something worthy of a turobricks meet instead of the v50.

This year I even had a last minute push to get it done - but nopeeeee.

<3 you guys.

Home safe, what a weekend. Just north of 2.25k miles, worth it!

Thank You to the Chef, the Hosts, and the "entertainment."
