You are joking right

Please tell me you just so happen to be renovating???
If you built anything in a room that you couldnt get it out of then I dont have much hope for the rig.

Nice looking sammy.

One of the Pirates did that. (Dustin) He had to take off all 4 wheels and roll it out on jacks to get it out of his garage. It wasn't even a regular garage door cuz his garage had been converted so it had to come out the back... But, he didn't have to cut anything. At least he didn't admit to cutting anything.

Well, I'm pretty burned out.. but the garage door is going in tomorrow.. and if I can finish up the wiring.. should be pretty easy to give it a once over (loose nuts/bolts, single brake line leak.. ) and get it in some dirt maybe this weekend??

Cool, a few of us from the Undertakers board will be doing a fairly easy run up the Gila River bottom near Florence on Saturday the 17th. There will be sand, some water crossings and a little Az slick rock action too, might be a good shake down run...wanna play?

Oh joy, water crossings I was thinking I'd run up to Table Mesa and just run through some easy trails.. Upper Term.. Predator.. but the river bottom does sound interesting..

The offer stands! As for the H2O, this time of year the Gila is pretty much like New River...dry. Let me know when you get down this way.
