Why would we talk smack??

Mud runs are a blast to watch.

Remember, we all watch anything wheeling on TV, read mags and I've been to several parties where wheeling videos were in play during the party. We are all sick.

Color tours can seem a little mild......but they are pretty....unless it snowed like a bitch 2 days before and doubled over all the saplings and dropped all the semi dead trees across the trails :tonka:

I haven't gotten the tires muddy....MUD SUCKS...but I did run them this last weekend on a secret \/\/estside run with a bunch of Yotas and a broken purple CJ

The aussie is a great locker. I had one in the front of the TJ as well.

Why do you need an ORV sticker?

don't know why you need one but they require it (ORV Sticker)

no stumps or anything, i had hit some really deep ruts sideways that i didn't know were there

No classes or anything.....its just an open mud pit with 5 or 6 trucks in at a time just free wheeling any where in it, they have a points system for a competition that is just based on behavior and related not really on performance

I got some pics of one of the tractors suck trying to extract some other truck. I think the pics are from Summer of '98.

That Deliverance music on the website was terrible. Whats funny though is how people said Allegan was pretty hillbilly when I lived in Holland over there.

Hillbilly would be a mild term. I'll have to find my pic of 4 guys on pretty much just an open frame with seats.....only a semblance of a cage......wearing yellow rain gear (but you couldn't tell the color of anything after 5 minutes) :tonka:
