My credo
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
Reminder. Calendar photos needed.

And, for those who didn't order this year's issue, you're missing a great photo this month of a father and son team enjoying their RBV.

I have a couple planned. I think I'm going to make some offerings that have the trucks separate this year. One with the 2019 while camping. Another with the 2011 and the trailer. Now that the painting is finally done on the trailer. I need to make arrangements to get it weighted and see where I need to go with it on the next step(s). Right now, I only have a rough idea how much it weights, which has been fine up to this point but I need hard numbers. The trick is, I'm going on 2nd shift for the next couple of weeks. So I need to do some strategic planning.

In any case, expect two from me this year to pick and choose what you think will work best for the calendar. Great picture of Bobby and Jr this month and a great memory!

5 more days for photo submissions. I need to check and see how many pictures I have. We may not need to do a vote. If that's the case, or I don't have enough, I'll extend submission time to the 31st of this month.

I know there were one or two that people saw and recommended for the calendar. But the owners have not submitted full-resolution files yet. I know we have favorites and some who are frequently seen in the calendar. But I love seeing new rigs submitted.

Where is the voting?
I don't think we're going to need to vote. I got a little behind schedule this week. I'll iron that out tomorrow night.

OK, at this very moment, I have usable submissions from exactly 12 people. If you don't see your name below and you know you sent me something, let me know ASAP. I don't want anyone left out due to my mistake.
