I wish this was my idea. I hate it when Grant gets credit for something.

Kinda defeats the whole purpose in going for me. I wanna pick up some bargains while I am there. If you factor in $48, that makes a set of Oh Sh!t handles pretty damn expensive.

Yeah man... I bought my grab handles from the show from Last year.

There were about 10 jeeps from Lakeland jeep club there last year too.

Holy crap... this thing is going to be huge.

I rule


Don't forget to bring some cash... if i remember correctly, you have to pay for parking and its like $10

I just called tgifridays to give them a heads up.

They know we are coming...

In fact, somebody supposedly stopped by and told her that there will be about 40 of us going, so Thank you who ever you are.

Here you go grant.....


Not my best work, but the cb conversation made me (us) laugh.

Great event. I love anything that gets that many jeeps in a row riding down busy city streets turning heads.

I actually posted it on the other site, but the moderators must have yanked it as soon as I put it up.
