Everyone had a great time at the meet-up last night, lost of members with awesome rigs. Toyota was the dominate vehicle by a large margin. One thing that was really interesting was what stage of build each rig was in, from just getting started saying I wont need much and I want to keep it stock to the person who said that several years ago and are off the the races with lots of mods. Next meeting is camp setups and Adventure Trailer walk-arounds.
