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.

I think you are thinking of a "bikini" top. The cover I'm making will keep it nice a warm in the Toyota.

I told you we were going to the mounds and you and Mike had something going on the day we were at the park.

-81" wheelbase, locked x 2 = True
-2-3 PSI (Double beadlocked and Jeep weight under a ton) = True
-25 MPH = True, although we may have got up to 30 last year. Downhill.
-Anything WR says = Bullshit

where did you find the material for the windshield? I'll have to go that route once my OE craps out. it's cracked pretty bad on the pass side and I'm sure will get worse at some point. it'll be a bitch to replace with real glass.
