:bump:

Haven't bought my tickets yet... the prices seem to change hourly! $420, then $360, then $390. Next time I see 'em for $360, I'm jumpin' on 'em!

Okay, I jumped. Got it for $360 tonight so I booked. :cool:

I leave Seattle at 11:25pm, stop over in Chicago, and arrive at Tulsa airport at 10:02am. I'm not good at sleeping on airplanes, but I've never done a redeye before either. I figure I'll have a couple of drinks at the airport lounge before boarding, and I'll be fine. My return flight leaves Sunday at 6:45pm, and arrives about 11:00pm. Gotta make sure I'm there for the giveaway Sunday morning! :wink:

So I won't get run out if I show up with my Samurai?
I just saw a mention of this on another website, and it just happens to be on the way back from another Zook event I'm going to. Thought I would stop in and check out Disney... :wink:

Heck no! A Samurai is the grandson of the LJ, they are very welcome, in fact I will be bringing mine and there should be a couple more there too.

Any Suzuki is welcome and so are you. :wink:

I will be there early Friday morning, I think Smuz will be there then also.




Tweeder, I have an extra radiator if you need it. We can put it on the day of the meet if need be.

Great, thanks.
Looks like I will actually get into the area on Thursday, so is there anything I need to tell them when I make reservations for an RV slot?

Just tell them you are with the Suzuki LJ Meet.

We pretty much get pic of where we want to have our camp so if you want to look around and pick a good spot with lots of shade (which most all of it is) and flat ground go right ahead.

I will be there early Friday morning, I think Smuz will be there then also.
Smuz iz gonna be trying to get 2-LJ10's, 1-LJ20, 1-LJ80, 1-Sidekick, and 1-fifthwheel trailer to the meet using ONE freaking tow rig. I gunna be in and out of Disney like a yo-yo.

BTW: Jimny, Sancho needs a roll bar/cage. Does you got sumpin? Mebbe the old Zuk-10 orig.? It don't gotta be much, and we kin install on site.
The above is my opinion. It is subject (like all my opinions) to debate, disagreement, rude gestures, and loud raspberries.

Unfortunately, (for me) :wink: , I will not be able to make it to OK. Work is the issue. (Always) And time. And distance. Money figures in there somewhere, too.
Have a good time. I'll be at work....
