    Keep us posted on how that quilt works out, I think that may be a great solution for bedding in the GFC.

    'White Glover' - They're doing a PNW trip. I know that there's another person living in BC headed down for installation as well. And, I know at least one GFC is headed to Portland.

    I too kinda wish they would keep everyone up to date on deliveries. But, I can also see why they wouldn't. There would be a lot of bitching and whining when folks knew that a load was headed in their direction - and they weren't included in that delivery. Once they get caught up a bit I would expect to see more info on delivery status. Of course, by that time I will already have mine so I won't really give a shit. :)

    If anyone knows what day-ish Ross is going through Portland, maybe we can do an unofficial meeting if GFC doesn't set something up on IG. Don't know of any breweries in Portland proper with a lot of parking, but there's a few places on the west side that would work well. I got a place that has a LOT of parking next to it.

    Well, since he's headed to Portland after B-ham. Seems you're on the way.

    Or you could drive up to B-ham to see one.

    Thanks for the offer. Sadly, our daughters have their Christmas show this weekend.

    Maybe we could organize a meetup sometime? If you don't mind?

    Well I got an email from Ben today. Elise no longer works there....so communications might be better? Don’t know if that’s related or not. Either way he said that Ross is headed to the PNW then Reno then SoCal. Not sure if that’s all the same run or not though.

    He also stated that is the last run of the year. Then Christmas time with families and back to it for the New Year. I know for mine they’re planning either an east coast run or a personal run for me out to Michigan.

    Only two words: FREAKING AWESOME!

    What a well built piece of kit. And, if tell me you've ever met anybody nicer than Ross - I'd have to say you're lying.

    I'll post some pix tomorrow. Tonight I have to drink beer, eat pizza, and watch Xmas movies with the kids. Oh, and I'm gloating inside about my cool new GFC.

    PS: My 8 year old son thinks it's the coolest thing since sliced bread. That makes it ALMOST worth the 12% tax I had to pay importing it into Canada...

    Thought i saw the Raptor at the “XO Hanger” this past week in an IG story.... probably see a GFC on one of those trucks next season.... hey good for them. They’re right in town, don’t know why they wouldn’t work something out.

    I believe that was the Raptor they just did an install on for maxxtrak. But it would be cool to see a collab, although the GFC doesnt seem to be XOs style.
