No date yet that I know of. I'll post it as soon as I know the date.

Okay, I talked with my Dad last night and they are planning on Sept. 15th. Mark your calendars and get those trucks ready!

Unfortunately, I am probably going to be out of town that weekend. So be on the lookout for someone willing to coordinate the video or run a video camera.I'll be glad to share what I have with someone if they want to coordinate it. It will be fun regardless but I like to relive it through the winter on the TV. :-)

would be cool if anyone being a passenger in some trucks made short some interior clips going through the gears that we could add as a bonus feature at the end as well as some asphalt runs like last years video.

I like the bonus features idea! In cab stuff would be cool. Also, Roger Emmert mentioned trying to get some of the guys talking about the "Old days" and getting that on video. That would also make a good bonus feature. Great idea!

I just wanted to bump this back up since we are almost a week away from the Tombstone Run. I still don't know that I will be able to make it so I'm still looking for anyone that wants to help with the video cameras. Let me or my dad know if you can help. Thanks!

A week away and I cant wait.  I was watching all the old videos tonight to pump myself up for it, not that I really needed it.  I got insurance for my truck this week and drove it to work today to give it an undercarriage bath.  It drove pretty decent and ran just fine.  There are a couple little leaks but nothing thats going to keep it from headed up the canyon.  Hopefully we get a good turnout as there as been in previous years.

As most of yous guys (I've been in Illinois and picked up a little lingo) probably heard, I aint going to make the Tombstone run this year, out running Route 66.... about 5,000 miles of smoke and music across the heartland.... send fuel money to Scott Smith Eugene, OR General Delivery....

BUT, I have sent my PO-LEES Car with Deputy Doug "Red Light" Bookite to make sure you fellows  (I am talking to you, Dewey) don't foul the air in our green state.  Doug will take no prisoners....but he will take cash!  ...He is coming for you, Dewey... and you too, Ron.... Be warned.

Kenny told me a little something that he heard from Justin... I suppose you guys already know it but, I will pass it on anywy...  What do you get when you take the dog off the front of a Mack?



....A Kenworth......


OK, start throwing...

I just got in this week for a few days hopefully long enough to make tombstone. Geting a truck ready to go. Maybe two of us this time.

You guys have fun tomorrow.  Maybe I will be able to make the trip south next year.  Some of us in NW Washington may also do the same sort of run.  We have our own State HWY 20 up here with some fantastic scenery and some good grades that might make for a great video for us to present from up here.  We'll let you know.
