Re: Whats Everyone Doing For Labor Day Weekend?

Sunday i am going to an open carry picnick where i'll be carrying my 9mm out in the open in a holster. Open carry is completely legal in every city in michigan. The picknic is in warren. A couple of fellow oc'ers have been harrassed by the police in warren, so the obvious thing to do is have 50 or so polite armed people show up and have a bbq in the park!

Many cops either don't know the laws regarding open carry, or they are educated and still choose the make up their own rules. Non-Law abiding cops who infringe upon the civil liberties of others tend to cause quite a stir in the community.

Citizens of michigan have the right to keep and bear arms for the protection of themselves and the state.

Too bad not all law abiding citizens of the united states have the right to keep and bear arms. The 2nd amendment has never been "incorportated" so the feds are the only ones required to honor the 2nd amendment, states are not necessarily required to.

I am also listing the bus for sale on ebay again this weekend if i can find time.

Re: Whats Everyone Doing For Labor Day Weekend?

Saturday morning around 8AM, a buddy and I took our DR650 motos out for a 120-mile ride around the dirt roads N of Silver City. About 70% of the time it was raining, and in some cases the dirt roads were quite slippery, which is lotsa fun on a 2-wheeled conveyance. Visited the "ghost town" (there are current inhabitants) of Mogollon, saw Snow Lake and Wall Lake, both beautiful. Drenched, tired and running on fumes, we stopped for gas and eats at Mimbres at about 7PM, got home well after dark, grateful to be on an easy paved road.

Today I will be resting, reading, and drying out my gear.

Tomorrow is wide open. In honor of the holiday I will stay as far from "labor" as possible.

Re: Whats Everyone Doing For Labor Day Weekend?

I've got mine out camping this weekend. I'm at Ocean Waves Campground in Cape Hatteras NC...



Weather is not great though, mostly cloudy this weekend and it's suppose to rain tomorrow. Waves were too rough for swimming, and the bay was too rough for the Jetski's...

That bus still gathers a lot of attention at the campground, and when going down the road. Had a whole host of people wanted to look inside, and on the way home people kept waving at me and giving me the thumbs up...

Bus ran great, only had a little trouble with the Speedo at first, I tapped on it once and it has worked the rest of the weekend...about 210 miles each way, and had the Jeep on the tow bar behind the bus, couldn't even tell it was there unless I looked in the rear view camera to make sure it still was there...

Huh, there was a kid on one of my other online forums that went out to the oil sands for work, guess it has been about 1 1/2 years back. Last I heard, he was making good money driving one of those behemoth Terex trucks...

Re: Whats Everyone Doing For Labor Day Weekend?

I spent all day Saturday putting together my newly acquired 1999 Jetta Diesel. I bought it with a broken timing belt (later found the water pump bearing failed, the sprocket came apart and that broke the timing belt) I took the head off & found the valves were all ok - very rare with an interference motor... anyway I got it all back together Saturday night, but couldn't get the fuel primed & gave up at about 1am. Sunday morning I removed the fuel lines from the filter & filled it with fuel and got it running. I was excited and wanted to drive it badly.

So I grabbed the plate off my bus & put it on the jetta & took off to go look at a house about 1/2 hour from where I live now. Then I went to visit my sister for a few hours, which happens to be right across the street from a fire station where local cops like to hang out. Apparently while parked there, they ran the plate and found it is to a motorhome (my bus) as soon as we left to go out for dinner I got pulled over. No registration, or insurance - got 2 tickets, and they took my license plate. Luckily they didn't impound the car, they "let" me pay $50 to tow it 1/4 mile back to my sisters so I can come get it on Tuesday when I can get the car legal to drive.

Hopefully today is better than yesterday.

Re: Whats Everyone Doing For Labor Day Weekend?

ah,the old swap the plate game strikes again!You cant do that here either unless you have sold the car the plate came off of and you only have 10 days totransfer.Its like driving with no insurance and is a hefty fine,600 bucks.Then a missuse of plate charge and they will take the plate.Everyone needs a dealer plate!

Re: Whats Everyone Doing For Labor Day Weekend?

On Friday I made a 6 hour drive south to Kansas City to see Tori Hunter and the Angels play against the Royals. Used the van for this trip. Sunday went to Worlds Of Fun amusement park in KC and camped their in the van for 2 of the nights. First night was camped at a Walmart until nature called (6am) and wouldn't you know it the Walmart was closed until 9am, so left for a 24hour gas station.
