VERY fun

Edit: Think our high speed runs during trail maintenance.
That was a blast!!!! I was amazed that you kept up with no top or doors.

Greg it was so great to have you at SnoFari! And it was thrilling to see the FrankenBrute in action! Thanks for coming and talking to the crowd and giving opportunities for someone to win that thing.

Do I get to go on that run with the tires I already have mounted? I think most of you would still be running bigger tires than me

Especially when turning right with all that weight in the driver's seat.

Nope, my run next year will be bring what ya got & we'll go have fun on the trails.

(that is, if I'm invited back as a trail leader )

He would be more than welcome on my run next year.
It was a great time Guys ! When all was said and done Tom's open diff XJ made it all the way and my locked / spooled CJ was done after the first hill, hey Tom I know Tom is a Guy that anyone would want on their run, thanks for taking my daughter for the rest of the run !

And thanks to Roger and his crew for keeping us warm all day while we hung out with the cool guys around the fire !
