In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
For a second I thought you were going to offer up the company plane. :nono:
Oh, no. We could never land that fine machine safely in the bush at Attica. He needs to find a bush pilot with a good STOL aircraft.

We really need to put in a requisition for a helicopter...

And I do believe she won that tussle?
What he is failing to mention is how many months prior where he said I should get a bronco. I might have even heard it from a few others; all in jest of course 🤣. I am 99.99% sure he didn’t account for his mini-me, my loyalty to Ford and where he said he didn’t want to bring home any more fixer-uppers. Oliver is all about the ranger and off-roading. But is not a good family off-roading vehicle.

We're not interested in facts. We thrive on hearsay, rumors, innuendos, lies, half-truths, assumptions and any other falsehoods that tickle our fancy and provide us ammunition to give someone a hard time.

I agree with Eric. We also like pictures with no explanation whatsoever... then just make it all up.

I didn't see an official headcount anywhere. I kinda need an idea of that "fact" to figure out my pizza shopping spree...

I’m not a fan of lies, I prefer complete fabrications… the more outlandish and unbelievable, the better.

I've had some stuff going on in the background. Need to add 4 people to the headcount for the trailride and for pizza. Some Curious Hound Overland people. Diehard Ranger lovers. I guarantee you'll love them. I went ahead and edited the list on page 1.

I'm a bit sad that the event has no sponsors this year. Maybe they'll pitch in last minute? I noticed lately that Midland is pushing the 115 pretty hard instead of the new 575 and 500. One would figure they would push the new model. Maybe going after the budget market? The new models are pretty spendy for GMRS radios.

It could also be a product availability issue… maybe they’re having supply issues on the newer model.
