My credo
"I'm not Mr. Lebowski, YOU'RE Mr. Lebowski. I'm The Dude."
It has been asked, so I figured I would tell you guys that in the past we've split people up in to groups based on trail difficulty. That way the hardcore groups aren't bored, and the novice off-roaders, and those not wanting any trail damage, aren't freaking out.
Overheard once on the CB: "JohnnyO, there's so much wax on your truck the mud is sliding off!"

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.

You will have your own "special" group.

I'll keep a shovel inside my cab for removal of excess mud, dust, rocks, leaves and limbs and fending off unwanted wild animals that drop in.

I don't plan on thrashing my truck through the rough stuff... I did a bunch of that in my youth with purpose built vehicles and for many years in VW powered long travel trail buggies.

I will be content to cruise around on the bunny trails find a vantage point and watch you guys do what you do.

Due to some cancer issues, and a cab that's held on by a slim majority of the bolts, I am inclined to join you.

My daughter drove through the brick wall of my garage when she was 7. She hadn't quite mastered the clutch and she is 9. We haven't fixed the wall, either. My wife hates me for it. And for a lot of other things. Some things that I did, not just things I procrastinated. But mostly for things I procrastinated. Which is things you didn't did. That's the complexity of being with the same woman for 26 years.

I want to use this weekend for a motorcycle ride, not to shame Fords with a Toyota. Are you going to guarentee me a seat, J.O.? I would love to slosh around in my waders in your service.

Unless my daughter insists on going to Ohio to attend and ride with me. I doubt it though.

No need to throw around the H word, I have three days of driving with no A/C and a tent to look forward too once I get there. Think cool thoughts.

Hey man, I cut my factory ac out of the truck. Didn't seem worth repairing.


Sometimes I regret this decision.

I have been squirreling away parts to add it back to mine, not going to get it done before the big dance though.
