Well it's a nice truck and all... But it's really odd!

Maybe next year for me, I'll need overdrive for this trip to be bearable, thats besides the fact that i would be doing it non-stop, and then the concern for breaking shit while there. Thats a large tow bill home.

we all did it non-stop last year and risked breaking stuff - you fix it while you're there

I'm with you on this. I have 5 forward but only seem to top out @ 60 mph. Maybe I need to change all my filters. This spring I'm fount to get a overhaul.

I'll be there in either an absurd 95 RRC on 37s, or my white DII.

Do you know who have good prices on extended brake lines? I tried Rover's North and I'm still waiting for a sales rep to get beck to me with the price. I also need the male part that connects to the rear diff. I have to set up my ARB compressor to my differential in the rear axle. I'm going to try to make it to the romp.

We did a trail clean / build last weekend. There will be some changes this year and it is important that all attending do not go all freelance on the trails. No wheeling before the riders meeting. The "Bessey" road is closed and those caught on it could be banned for life. It is a big deal.

Check in at http://www.winterromp.org/ for details forthcoming and also to register.

We have built some really sweet new trails for all levels.

There are some new challenging sections that will guarantee not only the use of a winch but hopefully someone who really knows how to use one. Go ahead and laugh now.........you'll be crying later lol.

I'll be up there on Firday but if anyone needs help there will be someone at the shop http://www.facebook.com/pages/Overla...wall&filter=12

I should note that this is not my event and I am hopefully just spreading the news and helping Bruce get the word out that there will be some changes that need to be paid attention to, for all those that like to show up early and do some trail braking. Check in with the organizer first.

Awww, I'm going to miss it this year. But, while I'm cycling the Kona-Kohala coast, I'll send some warm thoughts your way....

Truth is I'm seriously jealous as I can't get out there this year. I'm starting to dry out and need to get back to Hilo lol. Enjoy.
