If you like 90+ degree temps and 90% humidity, July-September is a great time to come to the Ozarks. Temperature wise May and June are usually nice and late September through early November are too.

I've lived here all my life and have only seen snow that early on a couple of occasions.

My yard has lots of trees, leaves do start coming down in November. Most of them come down mid November and later.

March and April are when spring storms can be an issue, I wouldn't recommend those two for sure.

Winter months, those are a crap shoot for out door activities.

The only time I can attend would be June out of those months listed I am working

Hi guys, I'm not old timer, I would not say new guys either as I got in at the bottom of the 930 price for those who remember my welcome post to the 930 section after I left the 911 section. It's winter here in Canada and there is only so much looking at the forum I can do before I have to have a beer and go look at my car in the garage... I can't wait for Spring to come! On my project list this Spring, engine bay fuel lines and maybe fuel accumulator, then set the pressures and be ready to drive!

Hey Gerry, welcome back - been awhile.

Mark makes a great observation about this forum in recent times... taken a 'different' direction - not necessarily better or worse just different, and not in the DIFFERENT way that Rawknees is - lately.

REALLY fun to see folks crawl out of the closet (errrrrrrrrrrr) to chime in here!

Yeah, I'm guilty as well... built mine up and now just focus on using it. Also took new job where I actually work (d'oh?) so I'm not paid to be online anymore 8-). Plus I'm trying to limit my screentime these days in general (to p*rn? fapfapfap) overall.

But yes, as Brian and others note... this place still RULES and us oldtimers and other dweebs are very much still here lurking (like Rawknees, that creeper).

As far as another 'paLOSER goes... I'm 10000% in for something. Not drive 1k mi? LOL... for the '09 event I racked on 2300mi Thurs-Mon so pffffffft!

I'd been trying to organize something here in the NE using my bud's VT chalet as homebase but he's since sold the place unfort so that's bunk. No way I'd get down to AR, but I'd love to run witchyouses all again. ENTIRELY JUST NOT RIGHT FUN.

Anywho, thanks fer the blast down mammary lane. Oh, and... bikerbar pic? Unsure which that may be, don't recall any bar per se butt...

BAM, @ Dragon Terminus after a full weekend of 'paloozer'ing:

https://get.google.com/albumarchive/103303182711250696201/album/AF1QipPK6-JcKdMC-OoNe7DaJaQ9ex8yPxWiJDUayPoy/AF1QipMgFokYznqJLr7RVlQeD7YhI9Xg-B566S_osIvQ

closest thing I can think of as biker bar that you might have meant?:

https://get.google.com/albumarchive/103303182711250696201/album/AF1QipOSOc2rq89sBq5hTXlqgFk0J5ZaqUi6ayXhv60R/AF1QipM-xJlhWwBmcETbAzM6InctkkiKOaTEptdUG5Sk

or then there's:

https://get.google.com/albumarchive/103303182711250696201/album/AF1QipOSOc2rq89sBq5hTXlqgFk0J5ZaqUi6ayXhv60R/AF1QipNQKYvYoVELlg5uBwIbku1kLl5trvwrZwzQrd1o

(FUT THE WUCK!? I tried posting pics like always via the yellow square pic button and pasting the properties of the pic between the [img] brackets that appear - but they pics don't post at all... just blank space!? Also tried saving them to laptop and uploading, that didn't work either!? THEN tried inserting the addresses as links and those are blank as welll? Oddly enjoy I copied / pasted the links into the body instead of using the blue loop icon and that worked? Odd. Grrrr! TECH CAVEMAN ALERT - someone help!? So annoying! I've got alllllllllll of the 'paloozer pics and they're awesome, sucks to not be able to post pics!).

Thanks Jeff, and - thanks Jeff!

Great to hear from you again, been awhile! Def hoping we'll be able to get together (not like that, 'knees) sometime finally!

Me, all but(t) axles and fuel lines left to disconnect then motor/trans mounts and my motor comes down - chasing a couple of leaks. Having the lift now helps 8-)

My car is waiting patiently for the snow and salt to disperse. Started it up two weeks ago without issue. Seriously missing driving it.

We really need to get a meetup of the locals together this year!

Paulie, bite me with your liftage unit. Old farts can't grovel around on the concrete as easily any more. I would give my left nut (now...back off Knees!!) to have a lift. So I gotta prioritize....lift, or retirement, retirement or lift???

Great to see all the long time contributors hooking up on this thread.

Was it called the back door??

Heh, Mark - I hear ya. I used to say the same thing to eveyone else that had one 8-).

Butt... hmmm... er um uh... dunno whatchyou talkin bout Willis, ^above^... Rawknees to the White (ew) courtesy phone....

MikeD! Been awhile since I ripped one of those off. Feels good. MikeD! 8-)

Ben... Blue Oyster... roflmao. Took me a sec (errrrr, Rawknees?).

Miguel! Amen, brutha - I hear that! Such great memories of time together w/ you and your beloved. I know our paths will once again cross sometime, somewhere.

SBK, that is Justin's car (Juicersr) - he bailed here years back, tho think he still has it. 345/18s IIRC.

Back to 'paloozer'ing... Build it... and They Will Come. Say no more.
