Welcome to the rally. Especially those Casita owners undergoing modifications. It will be interesting to hear and see how far along they will be on their modifications.

If this rally is like last year there will be a number of wanna be owners present so they can "kick the tires". So far we do not have any of the "little guys", 13' or 15' models, otherwise every other model is present. We will have to wait to see if the new design models will be available.

Paul,
We considered ourselves lucky to get to tour a 13 at the rally in Osoyoos. There were any number of 15s out there but I think only one 13 and the only one we've ever seen. Looking forward to seeing you in September.
Let me know if there's anything you need and I'll get Eric to do it.
Dave

Lug Nuts Contest

I have been practicing for the up coming contest. Shown below is only a portion of my new lug nut wrench. The remainder is hidden to remain competitive.

That looks a lot like my old ( broken ) torque wrench. I figured I'd use it as a breaker bar, but it's designed to bend and I found it wasn't up to the job.

One of the best practical example of Hooke's law, simple but effective.

Hi all,
We will be working on what the big boys call the test rig as soon as I get back from Durango.
I will also have a traveling trophy for the winner. Figured a traveling trophy was only appropriate. Pulled Wolf Creek Pass in Colorado today 10,800 ft. Highlander performed admirably. When you're depending on everything staying together, including the brakes you adjusted and the bearings you packed and the nuts you torqued down as you descend those Colorado grades, it's a good feeling when you reach the bottom and an even better feeling when you reach for a cold Belgian beer in your air conditioned Escape, just west of
Pueblo Colorado tonight.
Dave
