TwoStangWmn· BEST BULLITT Nats 06
I got the award for traveling the farthest. I think that's because my trip from L.A. to Chicago involved dipping south to visit Terry and Bobby in Franklin, TN and then to Cleveland, where I visited Jim Bob as well as two of my cousins. I put on over 3000 miles getting to Chicago.TwoStangWmn said:Was there an award for the person that traveled the farthest? Would that be Paul or Chrisw?
Thanks Chris....And congrats to you too on your win......chrisW said:Frank nice job on winning first place in stock...hope to see u next year in San Fran for the 45th bullitt event
No worries Frank. I don't think I could afford to drive the El Camino up your way but maybe I can find a car show midway or something. Congrats once again on your award.Pronkie1 said:Chris aka SoCalBlue, Chris aka ChrisW,Jim aka Jim020 and anyone else I told I would be at the hotel after the show:A BIG APOLOGY ........I'll see your El Camino Chris someday in person......

I'm got a whole story to tell about this adventure. Sorry I haven't posted more about it so far, but juggling being on the Legend Lives Tour with my car show committee responsibilities (bringing the "Alcatraz" people to the show) kept me real busy.
David... maybe you didn't travel the farthest, but I'll never forget the care and attention you took to keeping the celebration cake cool for the run from Holbrook to Seligman! Putting it on the passenger side floor (with A/C on) and covering it with your window sun shield worked perfectly... as the results showed...DavidMidgley said:To think I broke 3K miles the entire trip.......
Hey Kurt!BULLITT3230 said:phew!
We made it home late last night.
Stayed with family in Claremont and left on Tuesday afternoon.
Spent that evening with one of my bro's on his place on the Colorado river in Blythe CA, then went up and over the western version of the Dragon on 89 into Prescott AZ, then ran thru the canyons of Sedona.
By Thursday morning we were back on I-40 and jamming it, with a few more Route 66 stops along the way.
What a GREAT road trip!!!
So many memories...and as always, so much better doing it with the Bullitt family!

And, we made it to Missouri. Unfortunately when I got to Discount Tire at 8:05 there was already a tandem axle trailer getting all of it's tires done so it was 10:30 by the time we hit the road.
Otherwise all is good and with a 900 mile day we'll be home tomorrow.....assuming Canada Customs doesn't try to violate me......again
Thanks Steve!SteveNYC said:Hey Kurt!
Thanks again for all you did to make this the road trip of a life time! :clap: :clap: :clap:

I'm with you on it being a team effort, Kurt. :clap:BULLITT3230 said:Thanks Steve!
You are very welcome....it was a joy and an honor for us!!!
But I accept not personally, but on behalf of all of us at HoonDog.
It was a massive collective effort, both before and during the show, with a long year in the planning and many midnight hours on details...
(the same should be said about those who organized the Friends of Steve McQueen Show)
While we see lots of areas where we can improve, that doesn't detract from the success of the event...and only means future events get better, as they always did in the past when planning the Nationals/100th/40th/Shootout etc.
We are already at work on 2013 and 2014 the minute we got home...
HoonDog is committed to providing great, memorable, quality Bullitt events....and as always...all for the kids of Boys Republic!!!
We in turn are simply grateful for everyone's participation and support, and that it was a great event full of fun and safe travels (other than Paul and his trailer tire)
Chris Burns, Director of Boys Republic, wanted me to extend his thanks and appreciation to the Bullitt community for supporting the kids. This event was simply the beginning of something great! Lets look to the future, start planning for 2013 and beyond, and keep doing it for the kids!!!
