I did the large group thing when I first started out. Slowly but surely I started figuring out who I didn't want to camp/wheel with and started migrating towards the runs with the people I did. Eventually I broke away from it completely and started figuring out what I wanted out of wheeling in general. I'm still figuring out what I want but I've whittled my groups down to either who I really want to camp/shoot with or who I really want to be on a major trail with if shit goes wrong. Sometimes that goes hand in hand and most of the local fuckers put up with my shit for some reason or another so that's who I go out with now. :rofl:

I wheel with people that have similar goals and mind sets.

@AssBurns because he gets after it and can weld better then me.

@Tetten because he gets after it harder then me and can wrench as well as me.

@Hank because he gets after it and might have more tools then me.

@4runner DOA because he tries to get after it and always has beer when I run out.

@Mike_taco4x4 because pinwheels and he's a funny fucker.

Why you guys wheel with me I have no clue. I enjoyed wheeling alone for years before you guys herded me in. lol

I'm gonna try to fit at least one crawl trip in during 2020 now that I'm working again with current future prospects looking good. It will however depend on whether my contract gets extended or I get hired on permanently. And how much I have to pay my lawyer after April.

I don't need a fridge for beer it is in the high 20's can just store it on the porch ;) I need to drag the Tundra into the garage and finish some shit before I stick the 35's on (won't clear once I put them on)
Now I am looking for some advice, I want something else to beat up a bit, my budget is under 10K for purchase and what I need to make it reliable off road. We don't have much in the way of crawling here a few area's most off road is tight area's between trees (we do have stumps we can crawl over, some desert area to the east, beaches to the west, and a few malls. Work slows down over the winter, I will work on the house a bit, but will hire some out. So suggestions are welcome.

I got a book and the crushing realization my life is over but at the same time just beginning...
Guess I have until August to do some stupid shit.

The next 9 months are going to be the easiest on you my dear. The next 5 months will be OKAY for her. Then it all goes to hell. I hope you can deal with 3-6 hours of sleep for months 9 thru 14 or so :) That is why I never had one of the little darlings, that and just not the overwhelming desire. I love kids, I love my friends kids, I would adopt an older child in a heart beat.

I love my son, I hate the person I had him with. It's a blast watching him grow and develop his personality.

Nope. I can't stand the word. Look back in some early threads from this site and you'll see I told @AssBurns that before he decided to use the word.

I push my ifs rig as hard as I can in the rocks. Compared to a purpose built buggy my rigs a joke. Which is why my next rig will be a buggy.

I applaud the folks who can build those things. Fuckin’ rad. My uncle built airboats and swamp buggies down in SoFla. Another cool fun machine batch.
