I can pick you up along the way, if you’d like to go and ride along in someone’s truck.
I appreciate that, we’ll see how things go. Didn’t want to beg for seats for me and the GF. Just been a crazy year...

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.

I sniff fuel for a living. Don't judge me!
I think 2020 is going to become a new swear word. What in the 2020 are you doing?! Are you 2020 in the head?!

Zero over the last several months. I do have to have my stuff out of the house by December 1st though so it's about time to find a good spot to get back to it.

My credo
I didn't ask for your life story, just answer the question!
First an FYI...
Badlands requires safety flag at least 2’ over the highest point of your vehicle:

47658


I figured let’s have some fun with it. I got permission from @Jim Oaks to use the TRS logo and had some custom flags printed.

47659


I don’t know how many vehicles we’ll have, but I’ve got 25 flags to hand out. You’ll need to supply flag poles and mounts for your vehicle, but I should have enough flags for everyone.

I’ll bring heavy duty zip ties to attach the flags to the pole or you can bring the supplies needed to attach them like this:

47660

Just make sure the clamps fit tight to your flagpole so they don’t just fly off.

I am not in. I've got too much going on right now, plus hunting starts this Saturday and it's my boy's first season, he pretty much only wants to be in the woods.
