Guys we are hosting our first annual Transfer sled pull this weekend at 10 Anderson Drive , East Templeton ma.
It will be run by the Sugar Hill Snubbers pulling club.
Pulling will start at 12 noon.
Its some great fun and great competition.

Directions are easy. Make your way to rte 2 and get off at exit 21.
Head in the direction of the shell station. Drive on past, and take the next left at the 5 way inersection on to North Main st. Keep straight at blinking light a mile up. At top of hill you will see a shop on your left, this is Dereks place, keep going around the bend and down , go slow as you need to turn left onto Anderson Drive. Head straight to the track.
Hope to see some GTT folks there.

Yup , actually the truck really didn't do much! The rain we got the night before I think, really did most of the packing.

Well as you might have seen no pics from me :-( but I have a good excuse , seems as Iwas getting ready Saturday to leave my brothers shop.... My steering rack on my 02 Tundra desided it hated life and pukwd all its life fluid all over the ground!!! GREAT!!!! I says, my only transportation and it had to be this!! Horror shows HAVE NOTHING ON THIS!! Nothing wanted to turn , you can't get to one of the main rack bolts until you jack up the engine.... Both lines broke off... No one had anything in stock....Yeah..... It was fun. But thank god for my flaring tool kit !!! I made one new pipe and was able to repair the high pressure line also..End result by 7 pm last night i drove it home all repaired! GOD I HATE WORKING ON VEHICLES!!! This will be the first and last Toyota anything i will ever buy again!!
