Just wanted to let you know I won't be able to leave for Laughlin until later in the day. I have a 2nd interview in the morning so I'll have to leave after I finish B.S.ing the potential employer about my skills. It's over on Glendale and El Mirage Rd.

Looks like my getting to Laughlin tomorrow will be pushed back even further. My interview has been postponed till 12:30PM and I might be minus the AV. I took it in for some last minute warranty work and Chevy has to put a new ring & pinion in it. Had only 30 miles till the warranty ran out. So if I don't get it back tomorrow I'll be in a Pick-up truck.

Super charger I'd really like to talk to you at the get together. I just had my ring and pinion changed under waranty and I'm not buying there reasoning for it failling. I'll be in a 04 Z-71 with a 6 inch lift.

Will be happy to talk to you John. I hope to find out why it failed. My dealer is pretty good and for the most part doesn't try to blow smoke at you. Looking forward to meeting you later today or tomorrow.

Live from Laughlin, NV. The first official post from the GTG!. No pics yet, sorry. But last night, CA_HIKR, SoCalCindy, Wind4Power, Sparqui & his wife as well as myself met AMD1900mp, Ghostwheel and two other members in the casino.

Most of the AZ folks got here around 2pm, so at 8pm, when we arrived, most had already chatted and ate. But Todd and Eric and others greeted us and I won $40 on the big wheel slot. We doubled down and won! Woo Hoo. (Of course, we won't mention the other time I double-down and lost.) ;)

Most are getting ready to head out to Oatman. Gotta run!

Lake Havasu stretches northward for 45 miles behind Parker Dam. Boating,fishing and an array of water sports are available. Straddling the lake is the famous London Bridge.

After we leave the London Bridge we will meet on the island side for a group photo. After that we will head to the Javalina Cantina for lunch.
Then we will spend the afternoon checking out the local shops before returning to Laughlin.


Sunday 01/28/07: Caravan to Oatman, Arizona
(Enjoy the OLD WEST town atmosphere

Oatman began about 90 years ago as a mining tent camp and quickly became a flourishing gold-mining community. In 1915, two miners struck a $10 million gold find, and within a year, the towns population grew to more than 3,500. Once a thriving mining community, Oatman, Arizona takes vistors back to the days of the OLD WEST with cowboy gunfights and showdowns in the middle of town. Wild burros roam the streets of this popular setting for many movies and TV westerns. Oatman's most famous visitors were Clark Gable and Carol Lombard who stayed there briefly during thier wellpublicized "elopement" in the 1930s.


8:00a.m. Meet at the Don Laughlin's parking lot.
8:30a.m. Caravan departs for Oatman.

MapQuest shows: approx. 49 minutes / 18.60 miles.

A mild off-road trip is planned for those who want to travel from Oatman back to Laughlin through the desert.

The off-roaders and the highway cruisers will meet back in Laughlin at Don Laughlin's Resort parking lot. At this time we are planning a dinner GTG either at the Resort or local restaurant, after that we are planning on a bowling tournament. Or you may decide to take in a movie or enjoy one of the many other anemities offered by the resort.




Monday 01/29/07: Breakfast and Checkout.
