Ha Ha! I have seen this truck in person. It was at the "Ozarks run" last year.

My truck club (show me F-100s) is the sponsor of the show.

My truck was there and I plan on being there next summer as well.

Hi Brian,

Yes that was taken in Branson last year. Did we talk at Branson last year? I see you are from Mountain Home Arkansas. I have been there many times. We go there usually 3 or 4 times a year when we are camping at Lake Norfork at either Bidwell Point or Robinson Point. We go into mountain home for groceries and like to go eat at Fred's Fish House and have a big burger and cold beer at the Back 40.

I don't reacall talking to you there. I just remember the truck. I was parked not to far down the hill from you in my multicolor driver.



Will you be at the run this summer? I plan to be (club truck area) if I can get my dialysis days changed around.

The whole show is moving down the hill to "area 57". Info on the show:

Info on area 57:

Let me know the next time you are in the area. I have been here since 81. Those are the decent places to eat around here. Not many good restaurants for some reason.

I'm not sure if I will go to Branson this year or not. I never know where I am going until the last minute depending on if I have to work or not. I usually always plan on the the big NSRA and Good Guys shows within 6 or 8 hours away, but I didn't decide to go to Branson last year until the night before the show. My wife, my little dog "Abby", and I decided to go and left Cape Girardeau about 6:00 pm the night before the show and drove 4 hours to get there. Let me tell you, these COE's with a sleeper can catch more bugs on a 4 hour summer night of driving 65-70 mph than you can imagine!!!

I can only imagine. That is pretty big.

With dialysis 3 days a week, I do not get far from home. One of my dialysis days is Saturday (which is when most shows are). I am trying now to get the day switched for the branson show, but..... who knows by then.

All the dialysis units around here are filled to capacity. No openings on a Saturday at the current time.

What a huge difference! In person that thing looks great now.

Do you have an idea of how long it took you to transform it from the beginning to end?
