do you know if ted and beth collins are still around? my mom was wondering. I have those same videos and watch them all the time. we always ran with the trailblazers at TQ because rut runners pussed out and would not go until the last couple years.

WOW, Don Collins.....How's Don doing? He and I go way back to when he was in the club @ MTU. And I do remember the The Great Pumpkin. There as only a handful of Scouts back then.

I remember your dad & uncle they are great guys. I also remember Don Salo, they were a blast to run with. They always Knew where all the really nasty mud was.

ted and beth are my aunt and uncle, they are doing fine although ted has moved on to fourwheelers but still comes out. my uncle don still has the scout on 40's now, he also has a yota pretty well set up. don salo still has his rig also and goes out once in awhile. The NMU Trailcats, the club im in now still runs the garlic and nash quite a bit and its still pretty slimy.
