    Skinner's Expedition looks like one a Sheriff in Montana would drive; I think it has like a 20,000 lb. winch on the front-end : :eek1

    mutt,
    I p.m.ed you about the cover I got one and actually you can give me the busted one if ya want cuz I think they aren't letting me keep the klr anyways. If I end up keeping it we can work something out cuz it'd be a parts bike anyway. see you at the ride and be carful with those wrenches or this is how you get the bike home!

    Good god give me a break. 8000lbs winch on front, brushguard, eddie bauer edition, 4wd. But the 4wd. is not locking in. I think it's an electrical problem.


    Now answer the dam question! How to cross the creek.

    Oh we'll get you across the creek. We'll bury the Muttbutler bike and use it as a deadman to winch to. :evil

    McD please light the fire when you arrive, It will be nice to have some coals for those riding in.

    Anyone bringing camp food. I haven't done shit to prepare for this event,
    I will bring
    a couple tables
    water jugs
    and the dakar
    if anyone needs more than that you better bring it yourself

    I was gonna bail from here at about 11 a.m. tomorrow after court but I just had a hearing get shceduled for Friday at 2 so I won't get to head East until 4 or 5 so I won't pull in until pretty late. I am still leaving Friday so I be fireside Friday night.

    Have I mentioned what assholes lawyers can be?

    the minute I head east I ain't taking any calls unless they are from Chaingolians or my wife
