I may be down for one of those two option, Ron. Wanted someone to go with, but I feel the gf may complain about the cold if I bring her. Still figuring out my plans.

I took my [ex] gf last year and she was fine, but she grew up on a farm in north dakota so . . . .

PM me when you figure out what your plans are. I really should fix my LWB's brakes and take that, but it has been too cold here and snowing to get anything done.

plenty of heat indoors and in the trucks out on the trails. and goodwill usually has a good selection of cheap winter gear. my GF is from Hawaii and is about as warm blooded as they get. WR is the only LR event she goes to. That said, I don't know if she will make it this year. In which case I may have a passenger seat.

Is this the same girlfriend that you froze on your virgin run in the rover with no top? This will be just like that but colder with the chance of breaking things and getting stuck in the woods in the middle of the night.

Sure, just stop in. I'll be leaving around 1PM as there are quite a few people stopping in for this and that.......I'll have the shop open Thursday all day and Friday until noon...and the coffee on for anyone that want's to stop by ( 5 min from I-95 at the Maine border)
There is some good stuff to see (6- 90's, 3- 110's, a half dozen Series rigs and a huge pile of junk! ....not including the actual junkyd, which is pretty much burried in snow.....or the antique dirt bikes .....or the KTM race bikes set up for snow/ice.....
GF's rig is still in build stage, and pretty sweet (I may have to offer her a job).
My IIA might have to stay home unless I get time to put a new fuel tank in it, which is difficult as I drive it daily and it is suffering from the CKSS (Cobblers Kids Shoe Syndrome).

The SwampSlut is ready to go.

Snowmachines not needed Nate. My Prius with 29" swampers will be just fine.

Just hope for warmish days so the snow will actually pack! Although hearing a finely tuned 4.6 with 37's hammer white fluffy powder is awesome, after the first hour it just becomes a drag

His name is escaping me at the moment. It's a series body put on the rolling chassis of a Disco 2. Awesome truck. I think he works at Cityside Garage

I'll see if I can dig up a picture
