Turkey Drag 2019 was an absolute blast. We worked on our Toyota Extended cab for the week leading up to the show and were able to pack it up and drive it there. Normally, we have been driving Serina's car to shows or filming appointments, but we decided to have some fun with this one.
Patrick Reid and Jonathan Barron helped us bag the Toyota. We used an Airlift 3H kit accompanied by Dominator 2500s in the front and Dominator 2600s out back. Viair 485Cs supplied the air to our 5 gallon tank. Out back we used Ekstensive Metalworks 2-link, panhard rod, and bag brackets.
The drive there wasn't bad with the Toyota running like a champ. We ran out of time the night before and wasn't able to install a decent radio, so we spent the 5 hour drive singing songs and keeping each other entertained.
Friday evening when we reached the show, we cruised the showground and talked to some of our club members. Several of us decided to visit a local restaurant and enjoyed a good meal at a place called Buffalo Grill. They didn't serve alcohol, but were BYOB. This was perfect since most of the guys had coolers in their truck for the show. With full stomachs, we made our way back to Wind Point Park and settled in to our cabin for the night.
Saturday morning was chilly and we decided to hit one of the many food vendors on site at the show. The breakfast tacos were amazing and we started checking out the stream of vehicles entering the park. We wandered around for a few hours filming and taking pics of the quality rides and all of the people enjoying themselves.
Saturday afternoon we set up a few filming sessions with some great people. Cisco made contact with several people for us, but we only had so much daylight to film in. Sunset across the lake made for some amazing backdrops and we hope everyone was able to take advantage of the photo opportunities it presented.
Saturday Night we had a club function at the cabin we were staying in. Patrick's wife Samantha made chili and we had visitors from many clubs stop by to say hi and catch up since the last time we've spoke. Even some of our BuiltToCruise followers stopped by to say hello!
Sunday morning was another chilly one and we were up late since we stayed up so long Saturday night. Wanting to be on the road early for our 5 hour trek home, we decided to say goodbye to everyone and take off with a few club members. Somewhere before hitting the interstate, we encountered a series of potholes that ultimately bent one of our wheels and caused a serious vibration issue on the front end. Fortunately, Patrick was kind enough to pull his Ranger off his trailer and let us load up and pull our truck home.
It was a great time and we were able to see so many people and high quality rides. We even watched Texas Metalworks do some filming during the show. We can't wait to see everyone next year.
