Itching to take it out, need to hook with some of the guys in here and hit the trails. I know "The Godfather" has a trip planned in July to hit Mission Impossible, can't wait for that. I went to Harlan few years back and would love to make it back down there.

I was a member in 2005-2006? Made it to the safari and blast, the in 08 I started the makeover. It didnt look anything like it does now. I actually took the sticker off this weekend. Not sure if I'll become a member again or not. I have some good pics from Montezuma's revenge and Atlas from back in the day. Used to be a real good time though, so I may have to look them up again.

Very nice rig man. Congrats on wrapping it up.

Mission Impossible in July huh? I'll keep that in mind. I was wanting to wheel in MO but I've yet to go to Mission Impossible and I've heard good things.

Thanks! Yeah I am wanting to try out Washita (sp?) Off Road Park some time. Looks like a pretty cool place. Be cool to hit that and Flat Nasty in one weekend.

Yes, get a hold of The Godfather for details. The MI trail run will be the 11th.

Oh Hell yeah! Can't wait. I hacked up my Anti-Rock to work on the rear and I think it is going to make a huge difference compared to it's first trip out.

Took it out to Attica on the 12th for it's first run. Did pretty good overall, I have since modified the Anti-Rock to work on the rear and I hope that makes a difference on the trip next weekend.

I'd be up for a trip like this. I've been to both parks and they both are pretty decent. Flat Nasty does have a nice 2 room cabin they rent and there is also Barton's Campground (??) really close to the park.

MIT,
Let's set one up, I'm game. I am on vacation the week of Aug 16th-20th. Taking the Wife and baby Girl to St Louis for a couple of days. Be pretty cool if we could plan it around that. Spend a few weekdays in St. Louis with the Family and then head down there for some wheeling either weekend before or after. Let me know if your interested.
Rig looks killer by the way.

let me see what I can do. I'll have the trailer at the shop by then doing some finishing touches on it. also need to do some tuning (dialing in) with the s10, and add a new shifter, and maybe some custom headers....

Jwbogger,
I'm headed to a wedding the weekend of the 14th but the 20th might work. Washita is hosting an AMA race the weekend of the 20th though. Don't know if it's a track only type race or hairscramble that would close the trails. Either way it will most likely be crowded. That still leaves Flat Nasty. Thoughts?

Flat Nasty works for me. You got any other rigs that can go? You still have my number?
