Klinton has offered to put on a Crawdad or shrimp boil at next weeks meeting, the cost would be around $10 each.

Can you respond to this email if you are interested so Klinton will have an idea of how much food to buy.

We will do rig walk arounds in addition to dinner.

Great meet-up last night, got a very in depth presentation from Sonja Conklin, AirMedCare Network & Care Flight about their emergency transportation subscription service. Really something everyone that travels like us should have, kind of like a sat communicator when you need it you really need it.

Rig walk arounds are always interesting, we had several new members with some really great builds and trailers. Some seasoned members Deb and Mike Lee @Ironhorseoverland dropped by to share some of their new equipment additions, check them out on IG and follow their full time Overland travels.

Some reminders;
April 9 is the tire repair class, I will send out an invite this week.
April 19 is a presentation by Ben Varossa talking about suspension.
