I feel horrible.

You guys were setting up and I was helping Gumer with his car and I said I need to go over there and say Hi. I went back in the
afternoon and the guy said you went to the bathroom. Then Saturday all hell broke loose and uh let's just say, Flat Tire, Trip to
Big O (sorry no Tire available) , Then to Tire Rack (sorry no Tire available), Then Plan B kicks in, Quick Dinner with BBT Troy and
his wife, the drive half way to Minnesota to meet Gumers other son who brought us all 4 winter tires, Then back to hotel with one
stop to clean off bugs at around Midnight.

Up Early on Saturday, Drive 40 minute back to car with mini-Spare, Start swapping all 4 tires with Winter tires. Should be simple
right...Not !! **** ass Jack slid out from under car just as we got a tire under the rocker with a 1 x 4 on top of the rim.



Then, yes there is more. The freaking air suspension leaked down, look for more lumber and try to compress the suspension so we
can get the last tire on the car.

Shocking !!!!

We got it close enough to get two lugs on. So Gumer dragged the bottom of the wheel in by tightening the lug nut. Finally got the
jack back under the car and removed the lumber under the suspension and the Rocker. Then Gumer took the car for a test drive and
all was good.

Yahoo !!!



Back to the hotel for a quick Shower as I thought my tire changing was over and we were going to back to the show. Nope I walk
back down to the car and a couple cars over from me two nice young lady's that have a flat tire...seriously you can't make this **** up.

So I walk over and I take the back of the car apart so I can lower the tire down and the spare is flat "WTH" . So I walk back to my car
and pull out my Fat Bike Pump so I can manual pump up a mini-spare to 80psi. Yep, I need a shower again. Good news her son shows
up to take over for me. He puts the tire on and we both agree we need to add a little more air because it looks low. So back to my car
I go to get the pump and pumps some more in her tire.

All is good right. So I said it's hot and I need another shower but i need to go to the bathroom. Walk into my room open the bathroom
door and the drop ceiling above my toilet has fallen on my toilet.

Seriously I can't make this **** up.





Head back to the show and walk around take a few hundred pictures and we get invited to go see the "insane Convertible collection".
So we jump in the car and Holy Crap it is exactly what they said it was.

INSANE !!!

So much so that we got to sit in the GM Parade of Paridise bus that Kindigit Restored.



Look in the Window and you will see me





Craziest 48 hours of my life .

In the end I am sad that I didn't get to at least say hi. But I promise I will make sure that I find you at the next show before
anything crazy can happen.
