                        Jeff (Trex) and I will be there! We will have another jeep (Candy) with us and we'll do medium- hard.

                        We will not be getting in until Friday morning. My PTK induction ceremony is that Thursday night so is there anyway we can get our group CB channel so we can catch up when we get in if it's after 9am? Thank you!
