West Palm Beach meet: Sunday 03/03/13

*****UPDATED ON 03/03/13 @ 8:15AM*****
THE "MEET" TIME HAS BEEN MOVED UP TO 12:00PM.

Beautiful afternoon forecasted for WPB & no HEAT!
We will meet here:

Regal
1003 N State Road 7
Royal Palm Beach‎ Florida‎ 33411
United States

Parking for those who are riding with someone else & need somewhere to park theirs:
Storage place its right behind
1201 North State Road
Royal Palm Beach‎ Florida‎ 33411
United States

Google Map the "Regal" address & you'll see that it is not too big of an area & just right to spend a couple of hours out there. I have never been there before but AWorthyOpponent, Finks99Taco, & TacoTues have & I feel that it is worth the drive.

The 8st location in Miami is very rough the further you go in & except for MIAtaco (who isn't able to go but wanted to) no one from Miami has shown interest. It's easier for me to got to WPB then to have 4 or 5 trucks come down here from WPB. When you see these pics (Courtesy of Finks99Taco & TacoTues) you will see that the place looks to be fun & it's very central also, compared to Corbett.

TacoTues pics:





COME ON GUYS!!
COME ON SOUTH FLORIDA!!

I don't want to ride ALONE! LOL!

Make those "maybe's" into "going".

Let's get some more members going!

Hey PMK,
Nice to hear from you! Yes, I am planning to go this Sunday. This thread replaces the Miami one because it is more extreme than what I thought unless you stay near the entrance and that's not worth a trip to Miami for you WPB guys. Plus, except for MIAtaco who can't go but wanted to, no one else from down here has shown interest.

I wasn't aware that the land was sold but those pics that I posted (provided by Finks99Taco) were taken about a week ago or maybe less so I feel confident that we won't have any issues. I'm looking forward to it and am willing to do the drive. It's a shorter drive than Corbett, for me. You stopping by?

We were just out there Saturday.
It's decent sized for a couple trucks. Can't see them building any distribution center there though with all the apartments and buildings around...but I'm no city planner.

That's like a snatch strap, right?

Oh yeah. I think I remember reading that on the package. I've never used them but I bought them both less than a year ago.

It's kinda long.
But 3:50 is a good spot to watch the 2nd gen pull out a Heep.

It's basically a rope but works on kinetic energy to retrieve the other vehicle. Like a snatch strap but rated for huge working loads.

Since its up here, it'll be a lot easier for me to attend. Worst case, I'm about 10 minutes from work, and I can go take care of whatever and return to the wheeling.

Nice. How much did that run you?




When we are done, do we want to get our trucks cleaned at the car wash down the road? I usually go there, and they guys are really good at getting mud out of all the little cracks. I'm sure they would clean the mud off for us with a group discount if we told them we were coming....

I'm prob going to do this, especially since my trucks soo new...

Damn, that Bubba Rope looks awesome.
I would have bought that had I known it existed.

Dan,
Glad to see that your "probably" has moved up to "99%"!
The car wash sounds good to me.
Thanks for updating the list of attendees for me.
It's definitely heading in the right direction.

It was a gift, but its badass.
We can put it to the test over the weekend.

Honestly I rep my dirt. Still dirty from Saturday.
Gunna have to wash it before Sunday though. New canvas to get dirty.

Funny 'cause I was thinking the same thing at first. Taking the truck to work next day to shock my co-workers since they always see it clean but the car wash sounds tempting.

BTW, I wonder if they clean the engine compartment? That's always a concern for me. Especially the a/c & alternator with mud on them. I wish there was a way to keep mud out of the engine compartment, or minimize it. Is silicone spray good to use on the engine for protection or just wash off the mud after?
Does that car wash that Dan mentioned clean the engine bay also?

WD-40

Everything should rinse off after, supposedly. Never tried it. Too dirty already.
