Hey now..

Our clubs FIRST official Meet N Greet at what we hope becomes our "home" has been scheduled. You guys are welcome to come crash the party. We want to show the restaurant owner that we mean business ;).

Anways, from www.jacked-up-jeepclub.com:

The search is over the official Meet & Greet location is the Allstars Bar & Grill located at 906 Spring Lake Sq Winter Haven, FL 33881 and the phone just in case you ever get lost is (863) 299-7030. Dave and I met with the owner a great guy named Ward and he is eager to host a Jeep Night for the Jacked Up Jeep Club.

Our 1st Meet & Greet will be January 3, 2008 at 7pm

If you dont have my # and need some more detailed directions: PM me. I think most of you guys have it already.

Does that Jeep have a "distance odometer" that when you reach a certain distance from your house it explodes? C'mon linger out a little I'll buy the first round!!:beer:

Glad to hear you'll make it over. As far as a trail ride I didn't have anything planned but we'll see what happens.

Dave just left. Im sure he'll respond when he gets home. It happened today. He said her heard it ticking like it had a rock in the tire. We were playing in the sand pit when I heard a very load CLUNK followed by his front wheels locking up. Looks like he broke some teeth. We were in really deep sand but nothing that would put that much strain on it. We had to hook him up to the strap and pulled him out backwards. We didnt have the tools to undo the drive shaft so once we got him righted he just drove it back to camp. We're going to throw it on the trailer tomorrow and deliver it at the meet n greet.

Yeah aint life a *****? Ive been lucky for a long time - was wondering when something would finally happen. I'm just glad it happened when I had good people like Jeff and his friends around. They're bringing my rig to the meet n greet tomorrow on their trailer. So technically, I'll make it!

Dont get any ideas Jake. I am NOT going to break something everytime you have a meet n greet just to get more people to come! Anyways, just ordered new gears and hopefully I'll be up and running again before next weekend (I wanna hit Ocala again lol).

Not much to say as far as details go. Rooster said it, I heard a tink for about half the day and thought I had picked up a rock. Was having some fun in that sand pit climbing some small hills and then snap. Im just glad that gears have come down in price from what they were when I initially put them in. Oh and VERY glad the Mrs took it well lol.

See ya tonite.

Wow. Last night was one helluva turn out. The crowd @ the pub was a little - different. But we pretty much set the tone in the bar. I had a great time.

Jeff, tell Mike and Greg thank for me for the millionth time. Glad we all got together - one helluva cool community we all belong to. Oh and Jeff, Mike and I talked again about doing a dual club Ocala clean up ride. We'll work on fleshing some details out soon.
