    Is that really a question? Of course Angry Pumpkin is in full effect.

    Here's my pic of the day. The Angry Pumpkin was supposed to be in it, but was too restless to sit still for more than 10 seconds.

    Lest that anyone be hankering that we were pullin up roots from the area we just discovered, we staked our claims in Animas Forks:
    Brother Ezekiel Beefcake's place:
    IMG_3474.JPG
    Brother Jeremiah Recrazy's homestead (he doesn't take kindly to visitors):
    IMG_3467.JPG
    And my humble Elias Milkweed homestead:
    IMG_3463.JPG
    Now that we put down roots, and have stocked up on vittles (mainly Mountain Beaver) for the upcoming winter, we are calling for our womenfolk to join us in the promised land. Mailed out our letters and expect our joyous replies any day now. Hallelujah!

    The angry pumpkin (that's what we call my 2010 ktm 530 because of the 6+ gallon tank and it's propensity for wheelies....) was having a blast! What a trip. T[​IMG]

    And perhaps my most slick tag.

    After watching a sticker get yanked almost immediately after I tagged a pass sign early on in my ADV, I began to elevate my tag game with some stealth placement!
