And then back out to go play in the big cat box





Somebody got a little too happy with the skinny pedal... or whatever those things use for a throttle. He was really getting after it... until he flew thru a tree. And then he stood on the throttle while it was on its side trying to get it to right itself. It was speculated it was a rental... it was certainly driven like one.

















And then after @Uncle Gump wondered off trying to catch a Twisted Sisters restaurant mirage in the distance, 1/3 of a C-92 flew over with a bunch of guys hanging on the wings and a horse with no name ran by... across the desert wasteland came:





They stopped and BS'ed for awhile, they were nice. They were having rear air suspension issues... I still want one.

And then they went charging up a hill, I bet the little kid in the jumpseat against the back door was excited by the time they got to the top.



The motley crew back at camp:









Everybody checking on how the kids are doing back at the ranch and making sure @Dirtman isn't running around with scissors... or pickles or whatever else he can get into.



Even though the clowns partied all night... I still like the neighbor's truck.



Jim giving a Bear Grylls/Surviver demo on wilderness survival



And I think that is all I have for the trail ride...

My credo
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
Here's a few more.

@Lil Bronco and his wife came up from Texas. The Jeep belongs to their son who goes to college in Ohio, and came over to wheel with us and his parents. Great family.

I thought it was a funny comment....... I think he thought it was strange to be around so many Fords, it seems like a Jeep world to him. 😂

Your B2 is just awful.


You should give it to me. ;brownbag;
I was going to try and shame @Lil Bronco into giving it to me in person... I didn't think he was having any of it. It's a really nice rig... and spent its life in Texas.

I don’t see anything either there or on Facebook. They haven’t posted anything on instagram since 2017 btw.

Wonder why they wouldn't just give the stickers out then... we had to hold the sticker while they took our picture.
