sorry, But I have to say this - at the last MN meet, which was cold and rainy, 7 of you guy's showed up. We all agreed ona late July/early August meet. now, everyone has "bailed" for one excuse or another.
point is, when you have 3.5 months to prepare for the meet, The excuse "I can't make it because....." really doesn't sit well with me. Now EMERGENCIES come up, ut nobody is in an emergency situation.
If you don't want to attend just say so. Just don't make excuses like "I'm busy" then work on your truck, or decide at the last minute to "go somewhere" or "I found some parts" - those parts will be there tomorrow.

I'm surprised someone hasn't said they can't go because school is starting in 5 weeks...

Machine, calm down buddy, its not the end of the world.
We all have lives outside the "ranger" life.
Stuff happens, things come up, plans change.

I've been working 55 hours a week, and trying to get my new place fixed up, helping landlord put in nrw carpet, new appliances, etc, and now I have to start packing and moving stuff, I have to be out of my place and into my new place Sept 1. And plus Sept 8th is my wedding day, and the lady is hounding me on all this wedding stuff we still have to do and buy.
I could probably do a meet in October. I should be all settled in by then, I hope.

I know it's frustrating when people bail, but it happens.

The world isn't ending, yet, there's still plenty of time and years left for many many more meets. Cheer up, don't worry, be happy.

Peace bro

In my defense, I have had this vacation planned for almost a year now, and despite doing all you can do to get ready in advance, you're always going to have to do most of your prep the week in advance. I leave on the 10th, I've got a lot to do to get ready. I am not trying to 'bail' on anyone but when I have to do these preparations (and that includes me going outside and giving my Ranger a full tune-up and pre-trip shakedown BTW), it is not a time that's conducive to going to a Ranger meet.

I like the idea of the meets, I found the first one quite fun. But I'm not going to be involved the slightest frigging bit if people are going to catch hell for 'bailing' when the reality is that getting together with a bunch of guys to talk about trucks isn't the highest thing on their priority list for a given weekend. Summer is a busy time for a lot of folks, myself included.

Hey guys... i have a few items for sale if anyone is interested.

http://www.fordrangerforum.com/inter...arts-sale.html

I also have a steering column, non tilt, no cruise, with steering wheel.

I am putting in explorer bucket seats into my ranger soon... probably be in october, so i will be selling my stock seats, 60/40 with arm rest... has a broken latch that needs fixing, if anyone is interested. Otherwise they will end up being extra seating in my garage, lol.

I also have my stock aluminum alloy rims with tires (2 of them are in good condition, good tread, the other two are worn) but the rims are in good shape, could use some polishing and cleaning and some tlc.
Also have good spare tire on steel rim for sale.

Also have a black aluminum topper for sale

Also anyone looking for an explorer roof rack?? Its off a 95... i thought i wanted it... but this one has a fixed front rack, the rear one is adjustable... i am looking for a newer one where both rack points are adjustable. In good shape, could use some sanding and fresh paint tho.

I'd sell it for $25. I know they go for $30-40 at my local jy.
I couldn't ship it tho. So u would have to come and get it, or I can keep it till the next meet.
If we have a meet at the end of September or in October I should make it and bring all my other items to sell or trade too.
