the question of spare grill is actually still up in the air. If Marv grows a conscience, we'll be short on grill space during the day saturday whilst ass smokes. That could be classified as crimes against SE. I'm not above going to walmart to get something disposable (or HD to get some bricks and a grate, you know, whatever), but better gear usually results in better..err results. We did lose our chicken guy, so we may need to fill that void.

I'm rambling. I've been moving **** and taking shelving apart since 5pm, I gotta catch a nap. tomorrow I'll be mowing the lawn ahead of the rain and then cleaning the shop (!!!!). No pressure here ;)

I'll check back for an update and call Marv to see what he's going to do. I can probably squeeze them in somehow in addition to the transmission I'm bringing for Captain Blotto to haul back to KC.

How about the fryer?

I vote bring the fryer just because it's so damn impressive.

There's like half a 240 in that thing.

It must dyno at least 37whp

Have fun y'all. I'll miss this one. But I do want to get out there again someday. Keep those traditions and meats burning.

we have several grocery stores in a ~10 mile radius, I have little doubt that we can make use of whatever is on hand

juuuust ducked the rain with the mower. in 1.5 hours I:
Weeded the front beds.. high spots only, but I sprayed it with roundup a week ago and the dead **** needed to come out for post-processing
went back to the shop, moved the 940 and trailer. remembered to check some dyno settings for another dynocomm owner, dropped and broke phone. need to go leave a negative review for that case (it fell literally 3 feet and I guess it hit something but I can't see what it would've been)
cut the yard
cleaned the mower, parked it, closed the shop, walked back to the house. then the bottom dropped out


fake edit: holy ****, 2 inches of rain tonight, gone by 2am but geeeeeeeeeeez.

Camping is a play by ear situation. the yard wasn't saturated so it might be ok by friday night, we'll have to see. Shop floor space is still going to be there.

Yesterday was a bust. Talked to Felix and it sounds like it was a dog soggy ride anyway.

Fixed the bike up, should be on the road on an hour or so.

the food was great and plentiful. smoked butts, grilled burgers, hotdogs, hundreds of packages of tater tots were fried, the shop trash cans are full of beer bottles and a couple water bottles, some hopes and dreams were left on the rollers, others were elated, metric tons of trashtalk poured forth into the streets


no one got arrested or pulled over (that I'm aware of at least), only really one possible case of alcohol poisoning, and everyone already knows who that was (not me).

only one person got stung by the resident apis, and it was on purpose (and recorded)

Cool. Besides the intentional stinging and alcohol poisoning, any Feats Of Strength? (buddy of mine always includes that and the Airing Of Grievances to any drinking event)

Had to get some "Gas" on the way down



Friday Evening at HeebHQ

That's no Volvo!



Sr.'s V8 car:





Sr.'s flathood turbo:



Mo's ridiculously nice 16V Turbo





Timing struggles limited this car all weekend. Believe they got some better results after I dipped Sunday AM. I'll let Kenny chime in.

Saturday's lineup:



Ced's BMW was the torque champ for the weekend



King Heeb in his natural habitat



Mike Jr.'s/Emmet's T5 C30 made 189 wheel but sounded damn good doing it.



MENNAAAAGGEE AYYY



Yeah...



The Doctor is In. RS3 with (I think) an intake pipe, downpipe, flash, and maybe something else I can't remember...anyway, basic bolt-ons, and it's a 600whp car.





Felt like Andre



Turbobees



HP gain for the weekend. +63HP just by throwing timing at it.





The Mahindra fulfills its destiny.



Matt inexplicably burning his bedsheets



SQUATTED BRO



Heading home...



Made a pitstop at Barber











Another stop to stretch my legs





And just a few miles from home....



Kenny, as always, thank you for the hospitality and Sam for the storytelling. Always good to see y'all and meet a couple new people along the way.
