..I will be out here all weekend taking pictures an covering some stories..:D

..If anyone has any request I will see what I can do..

..I spent the whole afternoon with Dan and the crew of Ruffstuff..Dan was busy as can be with normal duties plus the BBQ this afternoon and getting the trucks ready for welding duties at the Norcal Stampede..But those who know what a great guy Dan is know that Dan took the time out of his busy day to show me around the new huge shop and let me grab lot's of pictures for a future write up..



..While I was there, a few teams were already in line at the shop getting ready for the race tomorrow and Saturday..For now I only have a couple spy pics ..






..They are throwing some bacon on the BBQ so I got to get ready for the eats..

Thanks for stopping by Ted, just got home. Everyone had to call it an early night so they could get some pre running in before the prelim's tomorrow but we had a great turnout!

And thanks to the rest of you for stopping by, I am proud of what we have accomplished in the last 9 years and happy to show you all around the shop.
