Oct Tech Session Change

This Sunday is predicted to be a great day. Saturday will be a wash out. Lets have the session Sunday, same place same time same food. Speaking of food, I haven't seen too many people stepping up to the plate.

How does this idea sit?????????

Re: Oct Tech Session Change

Sunday works for me.

As for food, since I have Friday off, I was planning on firing up the smoker for the jalepinos.

Re: Oct Tech Session Change

Just watched the weather report, 1 to 2 inches of rain Saturday, sunny and 60 Sunday, I think it is a no brainer. Anyone else?

Hey BBD's another batch of JALEOINOS. Who can say no now - they are just incredible.
We look forward to seeing them and you, not necessarily in that order.

Re: Oct Tech Session Change

Sounds good to me, although it's awfully early in the week to be listening to the stupid weather reports if you ask me. (No one did however )
I'll be solo, so will only be up for the conversation, and to offer any help I can on technical stuff and will try to bring along some tools and whatnot to help out to that end.
I can pick up some food on the way, but you wouldn't want to eat my cooking!

Re: Oct Tech Session Change

Just put two dozen jalepinos on the smoker for tomorrow. Original plan was to do them yesterday, but had to replace a hub assembly on my truck, so I spent yestreday doing that. The rain isn't helping, but they should be okay.

Re: Oct Tech Session Change

What a day for a tech session, ride, walk, stroll, football game or just about anything. We tore Ray's bike down looking for a vacuum leak. Not sure if we found one but had a great time, ate too much food and took a ride up Mt. Wachusett at the end of the day. Tony, the jalapenos are great. We missed those that couldn't make it.

Re: Oct Tech Session Change

We think we found the vacuum leak, however could not get to it; need to remove the airbox.

Maybe a winter project.

I'd like to thank George & Ron who helped, but a BIG thank you to Tony and especially Steve who really got down and dirty with Rosie . I could not have done it without them!!!
