Hmmm. I wonder if the 245 can dolly the LS1 744 from Cleveland, OH?

It's an LS, meaning it's more reliable than any redblock. Just drive it.

You'd hate having to drag a dolly up the hills up here anyway.

Very true, but I would love to bring two of my cars (especially with one towing the other). One car just makes more sense. So, the question becomes do I bring the Sleeper 744, or the Sleepable 245? Twin turbos, or none? lol

Whatever you bring, just make sure it can turn.

Heh, the unvented front discs and single circuit brakes on the PV were making me a little nervous a couple of years ago. The original drums would have been toast in no time.

Been thinking about MountainMeet in light of current events, and barring an alien invasion in July, the meet will go ahead as planned.

COVID cases are still escalating in some areas, NC included, but that seems to be because of increased testing. The data for most states shows the percent-positive of tests trending down significantly: https://coronavirus.jhu.edu/testing/...ual-states/usa

Of course, I expect y'all to be smart. If you're sick, have had close contact with a positive case, are exhibiting symptoms, or are waiting for the results of a COVID test to come back, do us all a favor and stay home.

So all that said, I'm gonna start working up a menu and a sticker design here in the next little bit, and I'll start collecting money too.

Expect the food price to go up marginally this year. Meat is just more expensive now that it has been. In past years, I've asked for $15/day per person. This year will likely be $20.

This is as good of a place to reiterate the new rule for this year: If ya don't pay, ya don't eat.

Looks like MountainMeet is cancelled. Just got an email this morning that they've cancelled our dates.
