WOW!
You guys are hard on a guy when he's not watching.

Swampers sold, I have to deliver them at SnoFari to Shawn for his buggy.

42 MTR's get ordered Monday.

Picking away at it this afternoon. About ready to run for break in. Probably tomorrow.

I had some random guy stop and take a pic of it today in the parking lot in it's wimpy condition and tell me how cool it was. So there!

You can ride with us again and you already know the rules. Actually Mike's jeep performs much better so he is much less hateful.

I run 2-3 PSI with an 81" wheelbase and both ends locked. Needless to say my group doesn't break 25MPH on dry, flat pavement

That's the hardest part about being a 1st timer. Trying to figure out what is bullshit and what is truth. Or maybe it's half the fun hell I don't know.

Talked to landj this morning. There was about 12" of snow in the woods. Warm temps over the weekend caused some settling but not much loss.

His speed is correct, but not for the reasons listed. His pedal bike can't go any faster and he drives like an old woman to boot.

We run 40-45 down the road. OBA is always a good idea. You never know when you may need to help your trail leader.
