    How reliable has your ram been? My moms durago has 320k on it and runs like new. Zero issues from new. I the 5.7 power and whats crazy is the gas mileage is close to my ridgleline. So i am thinking of traiding up.

    I’ve owned it for eight years and has 172k on it now. Bought it with 45k and have only had to do front end wear parts like TRE’s, ball joints, and axle u joints. Besides that regular fluid changes and fuel filters every other oil change. Mine is a 5.9HO Cummins and gets 18city/21highway with 35” tires. Needless to say it has been the best truck I’ve ever owned.

    Just got a new replacement mount from MotoMinded for one that broke in a crash. Just wanted to give a shout out to @c.vestal for great customer service and getting it to me so quick. Also looks like the new mount has a new spot to mount the flasher relay which is usually dangling behind the ktm/husky mask. Nice work. BDAF4EE2-6BCA-42A6-BE2E-C6F39D2CB245.jpeg

    Beats the diseases you can get from a sedentary lifestyle.

    When i am 78, hope to have the spirit of Dutch. We were out clearing trail today at Shelton Dirt Rider. We found this abused tree from the last clearing party. Apparently tearing off bark is very bad for trees.

    I got my nice and clean truck very muddy but it cleaned right up with my new 2000 psi Ryobi pressure washer. It is actually pretty darn nice and had good reviews. I bought a $25 extended warranty on it.

    How many of them you think I’ll go through in the 5 year warranty period that is serviced at Home Depot where I bought it??

    I have done 25k miles with the truck first year. Lots of long trips and two west USA trips last year. Was very cramped and this rack system should go a long way in giving me some more elbow room.

    And, when @alvincullumyork crosses the finish line at the D100 for a repeat victory, I’ll have the perfect viewing platform!

    I hope I'm still cognizant and ambulatory at his age. Riding still would be a bonus. The spirit can be willing yet the flesh weak.

    How'd the bark get skinned from the tree?

    Well now that you bought the extended warranty, the thing'll probably last the five years. :twitch

    That looks like a pretty decent sized hill that pic was taken on...didn't think they had much by way of elevation changes out there at Shelton?

    LOL, correct, the place lacks any real elevation change, much like Tahuya. But, it makes up for it in the spirit of the sport and the free markets. This private enterprise with land lease from local timber companies allows the riding community to put up or shut up about trails, building trails, having a place to ride... Truth is, this product has stiff competition with many other riding areas but since I'm a firm believer in participating, my money and time is going there to help out. Hey, you never know when for whatever reason a couple of the other places might get shut down?

    Currently, I'll put Washington State riding up against anyplace in the world for quantity, quality and length of season. Don't you agree?

    Yep, the warranty assured me trouble free use! I'm happy to spend the $25 for that.... so now I can't lose.

    The tree got messed up by a careless person with a chainsaw when they cleared this trail last weekend. Fortunately, it isn't the Queen Bee tree of the forest or we'd all be dead by now and the polar ice bears would be eating us and stuff.

    Ok, I am now quite hungry and curious. Tell us more about that damn pizza. Also, the crust, crust is very important...the MOST important thing.

    And, On the 21st of December, the kitchen remodel was done. My wife thinks the kitchen is hers, and here she is with the first Turkey dinner.... but as you can see the kitchen really belongs to another member of the family.
