It would be interesting what could be "said" in person and never written anywhere... Much easier to say "it wasn't me"

I'm sure a lot can be said in person. I'm willing to listen to any rumors from JNAP employees! BTW, go to the Detroit JNAP Topix page...that's a great place to snoop for info. Masquerade as an employee and ask whatever you like.

You needed to do something and some others can wait a little longer, we are all in different situations so I think everyone respects you for that

Great to hear! Looking forward to the report. Why don't you start another thread and just link us poor homebodies to it.

Need to hear how the flight with Captain Kirk was too!

A new thread is probably a good idea. Shannon ended up designated photographer, so I'll let him post the good pics. Here are key things we learned at the JNAP plant tour today:

Chevy and Marlon are quite the characters.
There is great pride at work at JNAP.
Chevy & Marlon are great assets to JEEP & JG.
Seeing the process does change perspective.
The Ecodiesel GCs are as beautiful as we imagine. I can't wait to call one mine.

We did not gain any new intelligence on shipment or delivery. There were no shipments or trains loading today. However, it was a GREAT trip.

Thanks, Chevy, for sharing your work and your Sunday afternoon with Shannon, Vtail, and me. It was a pleasure meeting your beautiful wife. Like most of us, you married way above your level. She was a sport assisting with pics.

She says, "awww" lol..

And we're both very happy that you guys enjoyed yourselves. My biggest fear was that you all would come and be disappointed. I suppose we'll give Shannon the honors of starting a dedicated thread with all the high quality pics and such. And again, thx for coming.. Hope you all have/had safe flights home!
