Sounds like I missed a great party full of great people! I will definitely be there next time and might have to check out your course even sooner Scott

Sorry about your loss Nate if there is anything any of us can do let us know!

Scott thanks for a great time, you guys sure do know how to throw a party!

On the other hand, waking up to a charred buggy wasn't easy.

I'm sure she'll be parked until further notice

Total suckage Nate....... That sucks incredibly bad FAWK. Thanks Scott and Heather!!!! Awesome 3 or 4 day party! :) Between being on my death bed Thursday and Friday to rallying thru Friday night cooking the pig, I am almost kinda sorta back to normal. Well I should be by tomorrow anyway. I am still drinking beer trying to make up for my lack of drinking in the early stages of the party. That was my first whole hog, lots of work from prepping to cooking to serving. I dont want to do another anytime too soon, but I am looking forward to the next one. I am glad everyone enjoyed it. Great combionation of family friendly party, 4 wheelering, beers drinking, fire watching (not Nates rig), and hanging out with all of our ass hole friends!!!! Cant wait till next years!! Not that there wont be a few more parties there before then (diaper party).










BTW, I hope Davey doesnt wear out his butt hole, it looked like he was struggling. I think he drank a gallon of pig grease before the party even began. I was feeding him pork scraps and he was farting and eating at the same time. haha Silly dog.

It was a little too hot to grab the fire extinguisher from between the seats! Lol. This really sucks! Thanks for all the kind words. It's going to be a while before I can get back in the game. Going to need some time to recover from the loss. I did have a great time at the party. The pig was delicious. Had a blast tearing up the pile of wood chips. Thanks again scott and heather. Ps. sorry you didn't get one last ride.

That sucks so bad. Not that it means anything at all, but the damage isn't as bad as I expected. Still fucked, but nice to see that the expensive parts appear to have survived unscathed.

Jamming hard on wet cell batteries can cause catastrophe. Lead plates have a habit of bouncing out of where they belong, and shorting out inside. An Optima Yellow top would probably have saved his rig.

The burn didn't look that bad, all the major components are still there and good, just needs new wires and hoses, and a pair of seats. Already got a fire extinguisher. Nothing got hot enough to make the tubing brittle, just replace the plastic intake manifold.

A completly melted one is available for use- Someone left it at Scotts next to a pile of pallets and a grassfire.
