FYI, the trip is still on for sure if there's some rain. it's mostly sand, so no worries of major mud. however, if it's pure flood level raining, then we'll cancel since it is in washes.

We’re in the same boat - not sure we’ll go if it rains - don’t have the doors or roof in Cecil

Looks like we’re not going to make it. We’ll catch you guys on Jan 4th!

I unfortunately cannot make this trip now. I was installing the new windshield frame/cowl weather strip and needed to add pressure to the new(thick) weatherstrip to get the windshield back up. While adding pressure/leverage to align the top of the windshield frame to bolt to the roll cage, my helper accidentally misaligned the bolts and mushroomed the threads on both the bolts and the holes they feed into. I am beyond frustrated that this has happened, as well as that I cannot go on the trip. I now have to figure out how to salvage the threaded holes in the windshield frame, but tomorrow after I rest. My apologies for missing you guys tomorrow.

CANCELED - I really wanted to do this run, but since there's currently a flash flood watch, i think it's best to cancel.

Hey Kris, we are at the meet up spot, saw it was cancelled but Al and I are going to check it out. Don't worry we have a safety plan. It the water level is over the hood, let Al go first. Will try to get picks
