Yep, it's gonna be a good one for sure! Ill be starting a thread for it on a dat or 2.
The "gathering planning commission" had already discussed when and what and I'm excited.
I have been accused by forty_creek to "woah horse" on making the video and paying more pics.... something like 150+ pics to dig through as well as what I took....
I'll be posting some more soon
Here's some teasers...
