The time has come to return to Wellsville!

I hosted the first Ranger trail ride there in 1999, before it grew so popular by internet groups. My last run there was in 2006, and I've had (2) of them featured in Offroad Adventures Magazine including this one:

http://www.oramagazine.com/archive/nov_2003/features/nov01_rangerroundup_01.asp

Ironically, that run was called 'Return To Wellsville' and was featured in 2003. It's hard to believe it's 10-years later!

DETAILS:

This trail ride will be Saturday October 5th (first Saturday in October) in Wellsville, Ohio.

Meet at the State Rest Area (213 Rest Area) on SR 213 at the intersection of SR 7 just south of Wellsville Ohio at 10:00am.

You can view the area on Google Maps at:

Come prepared with a CB radio, tow strap, tow hooks, food, beverage, and a full tank of gas.

be prepared for anything!

I've been known to wheel all night. Even wheeled on a Friday night and then met the group Saturday morning on no sleep.

I'm interested in being there, and I still have all the same parts as I had back then, but they aren't assembled into a truck. Maybe...maybe...

Less typing - more wrenching

I'd like to ride along with someone if anyone has an open seat, until I start making money from my coop and can afford to do a 4x4 swap. Hopefully that'll be this next spring/summer.

Assuming I can get my junk fixed in time, I fully intend to make this one. Of course, that gives me just over a month to find the time and money to wrench and right now my choptop blew out the slave and the 2.9 is puking oil like mad while my F-150 has no front clip. Well, I guess that's not precisely true... I have a pile of new sheet metal in my shed and the old sheet metal is piled around the truck. Hopefully I'll have the new coil buckets on tomorrow and the rad support mounts fixed, then I'll just have to get the one sensor off my neighbor and I can start putting it back together. So I might have enough time....
