Hello Nick, welcome to the zoo.

So how do you get that nice rig inspected there? (Didn't notice a tag on the W/S is why I asked)

You live right in Erie or the suburbs? Millcreek maybe? Lawrence Park.

Please tell us you are not one of those McDowell High people.

HAHA im not from these parts, I currently reside in Fairview. I moved up this way for work (Assistant Manager for Tractor Supply Company.)

It passes inspection for the state of PA pretty easy. No stickers on the windshield, well, i rolled it and put in a new Windshield Frame and Glass and just never got my replacements yet.

Thanks for the welcome as well!

TSC up above the Mall of Peach Street?

Fairview is a nice area to live in there. Last place I lived there was out in McKean.

Yep. You sure do know an awful lot about this area! HAHAHA. Im VERY close to mckean. Live on Millfair Rd up near Sterretania RD.

You ever wheel out of Pfieffer RD in Mckean? The old gravel pits, we still use that place as testing grounds.

Yep, know right where you are referring to. Grew up in Erie, my Dad and sister still live in the area, over in Lawrence Park now, by GE. Dad's favorite place to eat is the Golden Corral right up by your work.

Wheeled to old pits there years ago, along with the power lines south of town (lines are closed to wheeling now, have been for years)

We still wheel the lines/gas line that run on the North side of I-90 right behind my store, not much there except a nice deep ravine crossing and a few big mudholes.

Do yah get back over this way much? I gotta admit, im a golden corral fan too. hahaha.

I know, old thread, but I just happened to find this website, and glad to see someone near me that wheels. The only spots I know and go to are in Conn. Lake or Geneva, but if anyone knows anywhere else nearby me I would love to go respectively wheeling with them. Going to hopefully pick up a 97 XJ Sport this weekend.
