We lost a great one tonight

RIP Bobby Long

I haven't posted in the Toy section in way too long. There is a thread in General 4x4. But this section were Bobby's people. He fought for years to beat that damn tumor. In the end it was too much. He was a great man, sorrounded by a strong wife and wonderful family.

Bobby you will be missed in our hearts and on the trails.

Rest easy, no more pain and fighting

I love you pops
