Argos 2023 Planning

Someone should start a de-briefing topic for last week’s get-together. Why not combine that with next year planning. God willing, we will do it all again next spring. There has been some talk about an event at a different part of the country. We can talk about that here as well.
For now, I would like to hear about what went well, and maybe what could use some improvement. :cowboy_hat_face:

That’s two years in a row. Double oops!.
That is one of my favorite parts of the event. I hope we can for sure flare the trucks next year.
Yes I am sure the price of fuel had some effects on traveling. We will see this summer how much it effects everyone in the world that normally travel. Not those that are Driving On Wood.
I expect a lot more building projects in the coming months to getting started.
If you never start the project it is a sure given you will never finish it. Take the first step and then another and another… and so on.
Thank you all that took time to take videos and pictures, it was much appriecated. If any of you did and have not posted them please do it not to late.

I want to thank the ladies that did the food. Their work was an outstanding component of the event. I know they ask that it would be helpful if those bringing food would let them know early in the weeks before Argos so they could plan easier. Thanks to Ron Lemler again this year for all the wood. Rhonda Lemler, Lisa Keith, Mrs. North and all those that helped with the food and clean-up. Breaking down the extra tables on Saturday night made us able get on the road earlier on Sunday. Everyone had their demonstration areas cleaned up early also. Dan Moore had a great charcoal demonstration. Missed some of the other charcoal guys this year.
It’s great that we are thinking of things we should have done and what could make it easier for next time while Argos is fresh in our minds.

I really enjoyed Wayne Keith’s talk about his experiences driving on wood thru the years. The Escape from Berkley, the Salt flats speed test and the unexpected event while doing a group demonstration were especially interesting. I hope this is included in the program for next year

I thought that Jesse recorded that interesting talk. If so I hope he posts it here.

It seemed to me that Mike was a lot more relaxed this year. Like to see that trend continue.
