Default Da Mounds (Sunday, Nov 05)

Hey everybody. Mark (BigNNasty72) and myself are headed to the Mounds on Sunday, Nov 5th for one more adventure this year, before we park the toys and upgrade (and fix stuff) for next year. We even got a few crazy guys on quads to go as well.

All are welcome to come and watch Mark try to get back to the mud before he blows his junk up.......again.

See ya there, we'll be in the Parking Lot at High Noon.

Funny guy. I can't help it...big HP + a heavy right foot = broken parts. Either way, my junk is fixed (again) and I'm there!

Big Bad Jeep....you gonna keep the soft top on for the run?

Alright Disorder, get your truck fixed. I'm guessing it's a little tranny work!!

As for the cage. Mark and I built the cages ourselves. Everything from Designing, Measuring, Notching, Bending, and Booger Welding. We borrowed my father inlaws shop for all of last winter. He had all the goodies: Bridgeports, Chop Saws, 220V Miller Matics, and Bender (only 1" & 2" dies though).

Newbie here ,but was thinking about coming up there this Sunday as well, I have a couple of questions though I have a 06 Dakota qaud cab and a friend of mine that is thinking about coming as well has a 07 FJ Cruiser, the only thing is they are both bone stock all the way down to the tires and we are wondering if there is gonna be any place for us to play around with out the worries of being stuck in some deep mud/water.We are driving up from Toledo,Ohio wich is around an 1 1/2 hour drive for us.

Thanks for any input.

There is some areas you can get to, but not all will be accessable. It really depends on how much rain we get between now and Sunday. There is plenty of people who show up with stock trucks and do just fine.
