Thanks for coordinating this Jude, it was a really great time and I look forward to more of it with you guys.

I think you were out of the mud/water before there would have been any worries. It was a short bath but a great picture! Glad you could come. After not getting stuck but sliding all over the place because of the mud everywhere, I'm thinking I might go with some KM2s soon. Not sure if they make them in the size I want though. It almost felt like driving on ice from all the mud.

Yeah, that was pretty slippery with the stock duelers I had on as well. But man was it fun turning ESP off and fishtailing all over the place!

I should have done that too or just used 2wd. I was using 4H but it would have been more fun the other way. Can you say muddy doughnuts?

There was quite a bit of time spent sideways for sure. At least there were many saplings there to keep us on the trail There were spots where even those with more aggressive treads were sideways a few times though.

Hey Cheryl, how much did your new lift and tires affect your MPG?

That's a good question! I haven't officially checked it but I'm not filling up any more often than I normally do. I tend to block out all bad memories and the prices at the pumps make my memory block kick in

I'll have to check it.

I hear ya, Cheryl. I prefer to remain ignorant and refuse to calculate. Won't change a thing anyhow, and I don't wanna have an ounce of hate related to my baby girl.

I just feed her when she is hungry and thirsty.

Had a great time yesterday as always, thank you all


on a second note....which do you all prefer meeting up at the store, or the property? Wanted to try meeting at the property so that while some of the guys that had to unload could go ahead and get it out of the way. Let me know what you prefer.

I'm game for any place. Are there any other good locations to wheel out in that area?

Meeting at the property works for me.

Howdy Keith! Thanks for all that you do.

I don't have a preference either way, but when newbs come along it is probably easier for them to find Handy Mart than the property. But I certainly don't mind stopping there to grab any newcomers, as I always want that last minute potty break before hitting the woods anyhow!

Chris....you missed one heckuva day out there!!!

Any chance I could take donations from our group of fellow jeepers towards buying me some KM2s?

I have about decided that it would be cheaper for me to buy 15 inch wheels and tires vs just tires for my 16 inch wheels I have now!

standby Shell, as soon as he reads that post he's going to let me have it with both barrels. He pulled me out a couple times after I got high centered on page road.

Hahahhahaha! I know my day will come....and it would have been Saturday if I had driven her with those ATs!

Her alternator died last night, Keith. She looks so sad sitting in the driveway. Getting fixed later today. But better here than on the trail, right!?!
