At this point I dont know. If I want to attend this year it may be truckless. I may have to just fly down or carpool with someone. I already have to drive down in October to Pismo with the jetskis, and I dont think I will be able to afford two Cali trips of gas.

I'll be headed down on the morning of the 25th (fri) and driving straight back on the 27th (Sun). I'm game for caravaning down and/or back for those that might be doing the same.

I'll be towing the Coly down with the Tahoe, so no Convoy for us. :cry:

But take pictures when you all blow on by..... :lol:

[email protected]???? DUUUUUUDE, you need to bring quads or a sand rail to Pismo! The Pismo dunes > the ocean. BNe ware or broken vehicle parts along the shore :lol:

Northwest Freeride is going to be hosting the Pismo Rager after the world finals this year. One weekend of total chaos. :) Given that IM active with them I have to make sure Im there. We will see how money looks as the time gets closer. Just 2k miles in a lifted truck hurts. Last time was 15.5 MPG coming down. Just cant keep up with the lowered truck fuel economy wise.

Edited it for you lol. I got just as shitty mileage as you heading down there. Think the only one that got good MPG was Tommy cause he was rolling on stock rims.

Yea me and Troy were at like half a tank and Tommy would only be at a quarter. Everytime we stopped for gas I had a quarter tank or less. I might get with phillip before the meet and see if there is anything he can do...seems like ever since he slapped that tune on there that tommy got from someone it has been pissing gas like no other....although it did fix the problems I had with the previous tune lol.

With the ricer tune off the truck and back to the latest stock its running much better. Efan mod has helped alot. Going to a supermod efan in a few months to help keep cooler when towing, and hopefully a PTB. I may get phillip to do a tune as well. Everyone seems pretty happy with his. BTW...we having a spring met or no go?
