Ok Gord, I have been through this a bunch of times and asked many commercial highway patrolmen. Only in CA though. As long as you have a commercial class A with doubles/triples endorsement you can tow up to any length. I was told you can be 100' and be fine. If you have a restricted class A you can only be 75' overall length. Also here's the kicker,,,, NEITHER of the TWO trailers in TOW can be more than 28'. Now here is where it gets tricky. does it mean over all length of the trailer or is from kingpen to rear axle or is it from front axle to rear of trailer????I was told it is more or less for you to interpretate  what the states in the DMV handbook and hope you don't get into an accident and or get a asshole patrolman that wants to mess with you. This all from CHP in CA. I used to tow with my 28' fithwheel trailer and my cruiser with my crewcab. It was 88' all together. Fun stuff and everybody looks at you doing it lol

As for the bearings, I'd recommend cleaning and inspecting them closely before repacking them.  If you find any pitting, damage or severe discoloring I'd recommend replacing them.  A bearing failure can turn catastrophic quickly, causing damage to the axle that will leave you in need of more than just a hub.

sorry guys not this time ,we have to fly down and rent a car in Vegas and drive to the Avi so no beer and worse than that we are going to be boatless
Gordy, no worries, they rent jet skis in Laughlin and there are many places that you can buy beer. :P
If anyone cares, Erika and I will be at the AVI on the 20th and leaving on the 24th.
See Ya.

then you should rename it with a better name lol

zero offense towards you as it will always be 'the gord trip' to many of us, but I think I've settled with the name "One Hot Summer Weekend" as the name of this one. Kinda keep this as the mega SCJB event of the year.

Hello everyone. Been an awful long time, and even though it's been a rough year for my family, I should have kept in better touch with you all. Anyways, as most of you know, and any new people who may not know, my baby girl was diagnosed with a rare form of Cancer, but I'm here with good news. She is currently in remission. That doesn't mean she's cured, it means they haven't found any new growth of it. So as I'm trying to get back to a relatively "normal" life again, I thought I should come on here and give a little update. I received a huge amount of support from all of you, and want to let you know we appreciate it, and even though I kinda fell by the wayside, I'm sure you guys knew it's because of working LOTS of overtime, many dr. and hospital visits, and just generally taking care of Bella. I did keep my I.G. Updated regularly as it's just a matter of a pic and a few words, and should have done the same here.... But I didn't!?!?
So with the great news, the somewhat normalicy that I hope to get back to, and even thought the wife is still not working (our choice to care for Bella) I told work I just can't keep working all the overtime I am, as I have a HotRod to build, a DragBoat to finish, and lots of time I need to spend with my little girl!!
 Thanks everyone, hope to be WAY more active than before, and eventually get down to a SoCalmeet, to meet and see everyone....thanks, Ken

Events / Group Picture @ Avi May 2015
« on: May 04, 2015, 01:22:15 PM »
I want to schedule a group photo with everyone at 12pm this Saturday at the Avi.

Here is what I have in mind. Everyone gather where the RED circle is. Have the photo taken from up on the grass looking down where the GREEN circle is. Now the GRAY lines show the general idea of where I would love to have everyone put their boats....or hell even be on your boat floating. The idea is BOATS and PEOPLE. LOTS OF THEM!  :-D Wear your SCJB shirts, hats, koozies, etc. Represent strong!

He's probably Layin' low because the Dude who bought the Orange barge is disappointed that a stroked 409 bored out to 532 with oval crower pistons and a stage 2 can (3/4 race cam for the newbs) doesn't really make 800hp and go 90mph....and the new owner doesn't look near as good in the daisy Dukes as Omar told him he would...

Thanks for the shout out Brad. 

I was kind of lucky to find this boat available when I was looking.  For those that don't know the story, I located this boat in Visalia Ca on Ebay.  It was at an automotive consignment lot and the guy really didn't want to ship it to Florida to the guy that was bidding on it.  I drove up to check it out in person and we made a deal.  Since then we've overhauled the original engine & pump, replaced the upholstery, fuel tanks, wiring & gauges.  Was it a good deal?  Probably not, but it's unique and I like having something that is a little different.

I was also lucky enough to find SCJB early in it's existence and have been able to meet some awesome people that have become great friends.

Yeah the idea has been brought up before. I've wanted to do this but calander speaking, the idea time i would want to start putting the calander together is the same time I'm thrashing to get the DVD done.

As many of you know I'm a one man show and I work a full time job as well. I know many have offered to help but call me selfish...I kinda like the pressure of running stuff by myself.

I'll try to plan ahead for it this year and make it happen for 2016.

:( the site doesn't like my iPhone???

Technical response: It's because its a flash based site. IPhone doesn't support flash.

Non technical response: your phone is a pile of shit, get a real phone that doesn't run iOS.

Well it's been a long time since I've been on here "to post" I visit a lot, just never have anything to say!! But I figured I'd at least give an update, since some may have been wondering, and I just kinda left for a bit.
For those who are seeing this for the first time, and don't want to wade thru from the beginning, basically my 9y/o little girl was diagnosed with an extremely rare form of cancer, (she is the 33rd kid known to have ever gotten this type).
I kinda vent, talk, and post pictures on Instagram, and what little I voice here, and that's about it. I don't Facebook, or Twitter, or Timder? Or anything, so, although on my IG it looks like I'm an outgoing energetic person, actually it's the opposite.
So, with all that Laid out, Bella will be starting her 8th round of Chemo on Wednesday, she is extremely sick, and are on some steroids that are so strong that they mess with her emotions, and feelings. She can be walking on cloud nine, and happy, and in moments will be so enraged that it's like she's telling us to FuckOff, and then will break down and cry inconsolable. It's a hard thing to see her go thru this and deal with, but it's a fact of our lives now. She is losing her hair again for the third time, and while we as adults know it isn't a big deal, it's a very significant thing to a pretty little 9 year old girl. Now with all that said, I/we have NO IDEA if all this treatment is working, this form is so rare, the Drs. don't know what to expect!!! We have had an outpouring of help and support, and a lot of good people have been there for us, and we appreciate it.
Now for some good news. I'm originally from SoCal, and we visit there (I'm in Spokane, Wash. now) several times a year, but this year, it was all put on hold. Mainly because she was hospitalized for 3 months, and my wife had to give up her job to be with Bella 24/7 in the hospital, and out. So money was/is tight.
 Anyways, several friends from so cal, including several "big shot" car people ...(Terri Brizio/Hollenbeck, Darryl Hollenbeck, Alex&Suzie Gambino, Aaron from Lost Angels project, Andy's-T',s TPCustoms) all chipped in and helped us go on a trip to Cali for Bella. What we wanted to do was just stop and say hi and Thankyou to everyone that helped and gave her gifts, and get her to Imperial Beach and ChicanoPark in SanDiego.
 But what ended up happening was an impromptu Lowrider Crusie thru the streets of SanFrancisco, and a 200 plus car turnout in the parking lot of the SF Giants, put together by Tyler from TPCustoms, then spent the night at Gambinos Customs and had dinner, visited Darryl's shop (Vintage Color Studios) he's the guy who painted Mumfords '13 GNRS winniner  built by Brizio's Rod Shop, and The IronOrchid, and many others, toured Andy's-T's tee shirt  shop, and Terri Brizio set up horse riding lessons for her. Aaron is the guy who built the giveaway roadster at the Ventura Nationals, and he took her surfing, and the biggie, was we took her to Disney Land. She got to go behind the scenes, meet and greet, and head of line passes. I know these are all HotRod/Custom related things, but figured most of you are car people too.
  Anyways, that's about all for now, I'll try to keep more current info, I'm just kinda of a slacker lately with all the shit going on in our lives, and that's all on me. Hope this was informative and welcome here, as I feel that I gave up on the site, but in actuality, a day goes by, then a week, then a couple of weeks, then a month, and then I don't know how to re-approach you all, but this time I just did!!

Thanks, Ken
