@PapaDave Couldn't make it today, but wanted to clarify for my first meetup with no swing and a miss. Since none of us are crazy enough to cross wives and mom's and no meet up on Mother's Day, May 9th. Is the 2nd Sunday being pushed to the following Sunday, May 16th or to next month on June 13th? Thanks!

June 13th, the meet up was moved to today at Frank Raines OHV

That way we can all survive Mother’s Day :)

Using traction boards to get over a boulder. As soon as the weight of the truck was on top of that rock it crumbled to bits. Benefits of a full size truck?

Glad to provide the learning moment for everyone.

Thanks to all who chipped in and to Mike Shaffer @shaffer offroad for the welds on my truss.

Great day yesterday! Tons of fun pushing the new rig (well, the rig was fine, more like pushing my co-pilot's and my nerves) into new realms. I made a little video of some of the medium-more tame moments (the co-pilot / camera crew was too busy holding on for dear life on the more technical trails to film). It's too big to post on this server, but for anyone who wants I'll post a link below to a google drive.
