Oh, it's always simple fixes. Most of our HMMWV's are broke and only need cheap parts. But when the Fed goes three years without passing a true budget, it means the military lives on a monthly paycheck. So buying twenty batteries is out of the question when you need to change the oil on all the vehicles that still run.

Probably not what you had in mind.
M60 I'm sure not functional. Broken?

Another at the local Nat.Guard. It does have an oil pan sitting under it. Broken?

I was just trying to explain to the wife that I needed to ride to work tomorrow so I could get this game moving. I'm working with the suits this week, and she clearly advised that riding to work in a suit was not in the best interest of our marriage. I think she likes my suits more than I do.

New tag. A school with a reptile as a mascot.

Maple Sally Road .. easy ride if you stay on the road .. safe for solo .. some side tracks that can be challenging and you may want to take a buddy .. you can even go trail blazing back through the woods to find some single track ..

Richland Creek Road .. absolutely NOT a solo ride .. take a friend .. really more suited to a dirt-oriented dual sport bike than an "adventure bike" .. fair warning .. it's rough and tough .. plenty of adventure .. don't take your V-Strom or big Beemer ..

.. sorry for the hijack ..

Sounds like a great place to stick the NC TAG

Seriously - a tag on a cool road like that would incite me to make the 600 mile round ride for the grab (keep it in mind for the NC Dirt game that I will be starting).

Hundreds of schools in the state and I can only find one "Green Dragons" about 125 miles from here.

But dragons are fictitious creatures. So are they reptiles?

Probably not, but it's as close as I could get!

Actually, it's a good bit closer to you than me, I think. Lexington, I think it was. If you post it, I'll agree that dragons are reptiles.
