    I've got young kids so not sure if I can plan to hit up the meet in Tennessee or not, who would be up for a meet in or around the DFW area around the same time?

    I can't remember what date the "southern" meet was scheduled for in TN.. but with my work schedule there just isn't any way possible I'd be able to make that trip.

    >> Therefore I gotta second the DFW meet.

    I'm always up for an excuse to look at vehicles and drink beer. My schedule's gotten a little stupid, which is why a trip to TN. is out this year but I'm sure I can pull a day off for some local fun.

    Yeah, that's a possibility. I work for the parent company to that and we could get the parking lot for free and I might be able to work in some food and drink specials and maybe have some stuff to give away (no promises) ...

    We're not going to have any time to plan this event for this same day. Plus, I don't want to take anything away from the hard work that Erica did on these events, my hat is really off to her for all that she's done for the site!

    How about we try for a Saturday in mid August? I've got the place to meet up at and we can get all of us Texans that can't hit the other meets.

    Ok, I have confirmed that Fat Daddy's in Mansfield is open and they will be more than happy to have us out for a meet. They've got a big parking lot (can hold about 500 trucks probably) and they have a few grassy areas ... plus they open at like 11 am and we can go in there to hang out as well.

    What are some good dates and times for everyone? I'm working with the folks at House of Hotrods to get one of the trucks out there to drive like the GMC Rock Crawler (not street legal) or another one of the trucks.

    It's Mansfield no one ever worries about being street legal down there lately!!!

    I've got a new Job that requires me to work Sunday's and being I'm still working at the old place every other Saturday I work (which means the 11th) So I vote for the 18th.

    Yea I missed this one, I was waiting for more confirmation if it was gonna happen and what time.
    Maybe we can tag on one of the local shows and meet up, theres a few that happen every couple of weeks.
