I'm all for makin' money when the opportunity presents, but I'm pretty sure you've never once said no to an additional shift the entire time I've known you..... Take a day off, lets hit the trails.

LOL, you are right, Overtime is decent money. Getting days off is hard because I am lowest man and I don't have that many vacation days for the year. I will put in for it and see how it goes. If not, it will have to be on a scheduled day off. We've got the summer also.

EDIT: Plenty of LEGAL wheeling

Depends on what part of Boston. The club does some stuff about an hour North of Boston, but that's about the closest legal stuff we've found.

If you have other suggestions, we'd love a PM!

Donny I think we've got to meet back up and you should show us around! That run we did in December wasn't too bad of a drive, but if you know of more that's closer to our area, let me know. I'm mapping out places for the next few months of club runs and would love some suggestions man!

I love barrington, OLD Green Hill...place is great and any kind of rig can do it.

Im working on a run to Old Florida Rd in late april...the only thing is its a pretty narly trail.

their is another trail that is a public rd. It runs off of Witchtrott rd in york maine and ends in berwick maine. it have some mud and one section has some technical stuff

Then their is a decent trail right up the street from my work in Dover/rochester NH about 45 min from boston if you hit no traffic..I gotta firgure out the legality of it though..I always see ATVs and stuff on the trail and people shooting guns so i mean it cant be too off limits, you just have to stay on the trail as its posted on one side and some parts both sides of the trail. Ryan what are you doing this weekend? I can take you out and scout the trail for your club Just let me know. Its going to be nice sunday I know you guys have your party this weekend so I dunno.

Hit me up and check out my build thread i started the other day

Party is next weekend (March 18th)

I'll be flying out to Washington state on Sunday morning so this weekend is a no-go for me. We'll definitely need to plan a time in the next few weeks though. Are you gonna be able to make it down to the party?

Weather has been decent, so I decided to put the soft top on, and also install the custom Hi-Lift mounts another member made for me. They are 10x's better then the exhaust clamps and looks so much cleaner under the roll bar padding. It is a 2.25", 2 piece clamp-on shaft collars from McMaster-Carr. It was drilled and tapped to accept a bolt. Add washers and nuts. Drilled one extra hole on the base of the Hi-Lift to get mounts even.

Had to drill one extra hole in the bottom of the Hi-Lift base to get it even. Also, the foam under the padding simply removes. The soft top closes and opens with out any issues. Before, the sides would get hung up on the muffler clamps.
