He needs it, Frank said it has been raining all week there. It rained here last night till early morning now it's nice and beautiful out.

Tweedy Bird just left, they came by just for a drive-by-hi.

Waiting on Vagabond to get here, then we are going to go play. I'm online to get his phone number from a PM to see how he is doing and where he's doing it at. :wink:

Later

Hey Jimny, you send me just the right amount of good weather! We had a nice dry (but very cold) day and now the rain is washing the mud off my car :D

Well the weather turned out very nice here, could not ask for any better, the rains early Saturday morning kept the dust down which I was afraid was going to be bad as we drove from one trail to another but due to the rains there were no dust.

Had only two show up to the meet that is from these forums, that was Smuz (of course) and Vagabond and a friend of mine, Mike and since Smuz brought an extra rig we had plenty to choose from.

It was warm enough out Saturday night that we didn't even start a campfire, we just sat on the back deck and chatted about Suzuki's and drank some good beer. Smuz brought some great Canadian beer, Labatt Blue, awesome beer, while I and Mike drank Shiner Bock which is a great rich beer from Texas and Vagabond brought some good Wheat beer.

Anyway back to four wheelin' here are some pics. Smuz has more.

Oh and by the way... Mouser did VERY well!!!! No rock climbing just steep hills and the likes. He sure has turned out to be a great rig!










A couple more pics.

I'm home safe and sound.
And a big thanks to Jimny for letting me infest his house for a weekend.

We made it home okay. Thanks for your hospitality! The trails were great. My wife keeps telling me how much she liked the trails, and how much fun she had.

The only LJ I can see in the pictures is Mouser; did you leave the other LJ's at home? Don't you still have Ranger, and didn't Smuz bring Sleepy?

It's not that I don't like Mouser, he's awesome; I just like seeing the other LJ's out there too. :D

LJ's or not, it looks like you all had a great time! If it wasn't so far away, I'd drive the LJ81 out there...

Sleepy was here but when we took him out I didn't bring the camera (doh!) and I was driving Ranger so Smuz could/should/might have pics of Ranger in action

Mike likes the Sami better then the LJ's due to more power :roll: plus softer seats :roll: .... ...baby! LOL

Between Smuz and I we had three LJ's not being used when we went out 4-wheelin'.



Smuz also got him another LJ20O...

I'm thinking about it. Most trails are made for quads but the LJ's fit on them so nice, as for teh Sami's with wide tracks they are a lot of work.

I'll do another next year with more LJ's and see if other poeple like them, I love the trails, the main one we took crosses over a stream 27 times (I counted how many times one day) and some cool hills to climb etc.

Smuz must be back to working hard, or he still hasn't found his camera. Maybe I need to look around here for it. LOL

Thanks for posting the pics. Looks like you folks had fun and GREAT daytime weather. Smuz, Mouser looks good at work. Was that the first time out for him? On our way to KY, we drove through Prairie Grove and area south. Very Very pretty. Stimulating to see an area where they are building.
