      Current weather forecast for Bugapaluza looks rather crappy:

      What will BAP do if it does rain? Cancel? Reschedule?

      He is correct.
      The show must go on. Rain or shine.

      !!!!!!!!!!!!!!ANNOUNCEMENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      We are officially OUT for BAP.
      Andrea broke her ankle (pictures on FB) and it is rather bad. She has an appointment Friday AM anyway which screws up our plans.
      Also, the rain looks to be a major PITA.
      One day I could handle. Both and it's a bummer.

      Oh well. I will still have Thursday, Friday, Monday & Tuesday off which I will need to take care of Andrea.
      Also, I will be in town to get my new phone on Sunday.

      If enough of us stay in town, maybe we could still get together Saturday night at the Cracker Barrel in Athens. Just an idea.

      Page 94 is MINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Much like the show, the caravan is still going down. Looks like Summer and I might be stopping off at Oasis Car Wash on Old Norcross before meeting up at Discover Mills, all depends on how the weather is down here before heading out for the caravan.

      Who all is joining us at Discover Mills?

      Awesome!

      Getting the replacement catalytic converter installed today, hopefully getting the headliner installed today as well.

      Talked to Mav earlier, I'll be picking up the tent from him early tomorrow so we'll have it for the show.

      Took my headlights out today, after a little wetsanding and polishing they came out really well.

      Before:



      After:





      After putting in the work to polish them I found out the horizontal adjuster was broken on the passenger side, luckily its right where it needs to be so they will do for now until I have the money for new lights.

      They look great in person, see everyone Saturday!

      Brian, hate that you guys cant make it Won't be the same without you. Tell Andrea that I hope she feels better soon!

      Stephen, those headlights look KILLER! Can't wait to see them in person.


      As far as BAP plans, I have to wash the car and pack things up. We probably won't head out with the caravan, just cause it's simply too early to get up there. Especially because I won't be able to go to many of the GTG's because money is tight as it is. I'll have to pack up some food, thankfully the hotel has a refrigerator! Looking forward to it though!!!

      It really is awesome. Tons of cool people, lots of sweet Dubs. It was my 2nd year, as well as Michelle's. My friend Summer came up and went for her first show. As for the awards, I scored awesome points with my factory grill and won first place for the stock category!




      Battery light came on today. Now looking at it having to get a new alternator according to the Mav and Madman.

      Indy can make a full trip up to Chattanooga for Bug-A-Palüza, but can't go from the apartment to the house without a MIL...
