I live for the Power Tour !
I love the Power Tour... It's the escape EVERY hotrodder needs from the stress of everyday life.
My first tour was 2010... And I've been addicted ever since. Each year its like a family reunion... Simply amazing.
Unfortunatly a few weeks ago, some idiot hit my Grand National and totalled it. It was my first hot rod... And I feel like I've lost a child. So many great memories in that car. BUT... That will not hold me back.. I WILL be riding again this year....one way or another. I will not let some idiots bad judgement keep me from what I love.
I could have died.... So I can truely say.. I live for the Power Tour.
I'm still waiting for the process to get my check.. but once I do... I will buy another GN and see my extended family on the tour.
Anyone that says it costs too much... You are wrong .. well except gas. My first tour I shared $55 a night hotel rooms with two others. They weren't five star places... But we had a great time !
I hope that every hotrodder gets to experience the tour at least once in their lives. The roads are fun to drive and the people are amazing.
If you go, stop by the PILOT TRANSPORT vendor rig and say hi... I will be rollin with those great guys !

Glad you're ok and we'll see you on the Tour! I think you may have offered to help me change a flat tire on the 2010 PT.

Great to hear your OK, my first PT was last year and like you I'm hooked. If I ever miss one in the future it's because I'm dead! I'll be looking for you this year, be safe but be fast!
