I bumped his build thread for him......so that done already. The rest is up to him. Actually let me know what you guys need as far as new brackets and stuff and I'll get them done for him for free when he's ready. If he needs any help wrenching I'm available for that too.

Thanks for all of your concern, i am fine. It was said that wheeling the Loonie run could beat a rig to within an inch of its life, I may have missed by an inch. I want to thank all who were involved in the recovery effort. What a great group of people!!!!! Took about 10 hours total to get it out of the bush. My co-pilot (Brother) has a bunch of pics from the weekend and we will post them in the pics thread. I met a lot of new friends and I will be back.
Thanks for making us feel welcome.
Lessons learned included if you have even 1 small thought about needing a cage it is past due. DO NOT WAIT. It is cold at night up there and a sleeping bag rated for 30 degrees is not warm enough.

Well we hear from the horse himself. You make a great point about the cage. If you're going to wheel, things happen.

So, update that build thread and let us know what's coming.
