Thumb Thank you all!!!!

You guys rock!!!!
I just want to thank all of you that dropped by for my exodus loadup.
It was a daunting task at hand, and without you all would have been impossible.
I wanted to buy youse guys lunch, I wish you would have accepted, sure was worth it.
Guy hung in like a trouper till late afternoon, and I stumbled around in circles while
we got the truck pulled up on the trailer, only casualty on our end was Guys trusty old
come-along, that popped a nut in mid pull, luckily I bought 2 from Northern Tool last week in preparation, they worked perfectly. Guy got pretty savvy with backing and such, I figure by the time he gets up to Ohio, he'll be an egg-spurt.... got some "non-transportable" flammables and such loaded
along with one of momma's megabuck trees, and some other boxes. Ready now for movers to roll on in, as the rest of the day was spent finishing the boxing in the barn. wow.
tanks again to all you guys, ADV'rs rock, and anytime you are blasting up Ohio way, you are welcome
to enjoy the comforts of my new northern home...My Va sKuNkWeRkZ will now become the BuCkEyE SkUnKwErkZ
gotta make a new shingle.
Hope ya'll had a fun ride, and made it home in one piece, albeit a bit muddy from the looks of it!!

Mud Ride Video

Hey guys.... great ride today. I had a blast running around watching everyone run through the mud and water. As soon as I can get some of this video downloaded I will get it online. Lots of good stuff. John and Jeremy .... sorry about your bikes. Overall however, I think everyone learned a lot today and had a good time. Dang I'm tired.

Jeremy showing those pesky GS owners that a V-Strom can get down in the right hands!!

*Dang Jeremy, I didn't realize that you went down so hard...I went back to check on you but VACommuter told me that "you had busted a mirror and decided to go home..." I hope you are okay. I think the V-strom looks great with a little chocolate icing!
