Yeah that water truck would be shuweet Lewall! I dunno if 5k gallons would even put a dent in the pond but it sure wouldnt hurt!

We've got an old well on the property that I dropped an electric pump into and have been running it to keep some water in the pond too, but it drains the well after about a day.

Cool on the '79 IT400.

I purchased a brand new '80 IT425 spring of '80. Rode it in the first ever John Zink Two Day Qualifier a few weeks later.

What a beast.

John Zink, I loved that place. Rode a motorcycle for the first time there at my first enduro/race, and many races after that. I loved that place!

Really great dry creek bed in Frog Bayou. Gus can lead you down there.

Heh, done that a couple times. Really rather not do that again.

I rode that in '86 on an '85 WR400 Husky. It was a blast. That was the year they accused VanZant of cheating because he beat all the factory riders.

Anyone that raced one of these big bore IT's and lived to tell about is a MAN! Scary as hell! Hard hitting power and no suspension or handling. I've taken it out a few times and almost killed myself. Hard to believe how far we have come since those days.

< ---- in fact the avatar is a pic from that race.
