Awesome Jimmy the pics and words were awesome! I wish my dad had taken the time to spend quality time in the woods.

Hope to catch up soon!

MOB, I need to make a trip to my mom's and see if she'll allow me to search through all of the boxes to try to find the old photo albums. My parents divorced around 81 or 82, so any remaining pictures would be in deep storage. I really would like to digitize them.

Karl, the boy can flat shoot. He's better than I am on paper targets, but he still gets a little buck fever.... at least, up until this last one. Hopefully his grades will improve and VMI's shooting team will be looking for some marksmen to throw some scholarship $$$ toward in a few years.

Well the little KLX lives! We took the carb apart again tonight and using the advice we gained here got all the little holes in the carb cleaned out. It needed a little coaxing to get started but it's running pretty good, starts readily and I rode it up and down the street a few moments ago. The throttle is sticking alittle so I need to check how I routed things but it's running good.

Thanks alot to all of you that offered help and advice.

The only real problem is when I go hunting tomorrow the deer are gonna smell me get out of the truck! Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

Looks like I can make the ride this morning. Looks like the bulk of the rain will hit the Richmond area after 4pm. Im still bringing my wet gear.
