That's why I'm in St Louis for the weekend. Lots of rocks down here. No snow in site. Went by the UROC coarse in Hannibal too. Any one planning on going?

Took the oldest boy to a Halo3 torney this weekend. It was a first for both of us. Then I stripped the drive gear off my Raptor axle. Going to IC this weekend for Invention Convention.

$3.59 per gal today in Dubuque. With no job right now getting to any comps is going to be tuff,and I just got my super up to the test all it needs is body to be painted.Also got a 2.2 for this year(scorpion ax-10)Hopefully the comps and GTG will be close enough to keep driving cost down.

I got lucky Friday night. Filled up here in Center Point at $3.39. 24 gal was still like $78 ouch. Hell it's gonna cost a pile just to mow the grass this summer. There are a lot more people popping up here in IA so maybe the comps and gtg will be shorter drives. Like I went to very many anyway. If this weather would straighten out I'd get a skid loader here and finish my rock garden I've been trying to finish for what 2 years now?

I think it is time to atleast get a GTG marked down on the calender.
The new job starts monday, so something close would be best for me. The cash hasn't started flowing yet. the tubed out rubi crawler is ready though as well as the rescue bronco.

I watched a guy do it once, does that count.
It can't be that hard point and shoot. The give you the correct mix if you tell them what you are doing.

I was kinda thinkin about using a wall texture hopper type of aperatous. We have an industrial air comp at work for volume. I think the concrete would have to be light with very little aggregate. I bet quick crete would work. Not that it would ever get approved by the boss but I would love to have a section of my rock garden coarse like the man made UROC courses.
