I like driving my rigs to the trail Art! Pirate rigs dont do that

Served me well for years.... but it is annoying after a long day. The time will come on your mod list for the Anti-rock.

It's the only reason I stay Kyle.... After my son is out of highschool that may change. Colorado / Utah sounds pretty dang good.

Thanks! I guess no one liked my video! I thought it was cool.... It might look like it's flat but if you look at the back round you can tell I probably climb 500-800 ft. in that 10 minutes! Maybe more. I know at the end of it we were right at 10,000 feet elevation.

This choice between them for me comes down to the Jeep heritage. I don't get all "USA" about many things.... but the Jeep history and off-road history and classic look and design will keep me in a Jeep over a Toyota any day.

It's a HAUL Beasley.... if were going to plan on running it will be two absolutely FULL days, personally depending on the final agenda I think running some of the shorter trails in the same area would be smart and allow us to make it to the next wheeling area on the second day. I'm just not sure how much time everyone will have... Total Dusy time will be in the 3 day range with driving up and down the mountain to get there.

2 Days is a minimum for the Dusy, 3 does the trail justice. Nice lakes to sit at, try some fishing etc

The current plan is to spend 10 days or so in California . But theirs one kink in the plan with this durn obamacare. Our health costs are currently set to triple , and that will eat up a lot of our disposable income . So until we can get health care figured out I am not sure how we are going to afford the trip .

That sucks Beasley. I'll have to admit I don't know much about why that would happen? Were you already paying for health care on your own, not through your employer? So are you saying that in order to maintain the level of coverage that you had in the past with the new health insurance marketplace the premiums are coming in at triple what you were paying? Isn't that exactly what the system was designed to prevent?.... Sorry you are having to deal with that.

We have had our own policy for 7 years as I am an independent contractor . It has gone up a little each year , but most of the increases have been manageable . The policy I currently have doesnt meet the .gov's criteria so it is canceled as of 12/31 . The new plan from the same insurer is almost triple and has higher deductibles. From my limited experience the only people that seem to like the new system are the ones who qualify for the credits .

Obozo and his cronies designed it to screw the working people and give more to those that prefer to spend their time drinking Colt 45, before they get to work/ baby making

Wow that is ridiculous! Do you think premiums will lower as more insurance providers join the market and it becomes more competitive? It seems like that would be the case, and also if more and more people are paying into the system creating a larger pool of money that should also lower premiums. But on the flip side all that money is probably going into someone's pocket.... Damn.

But you'll have that warm fuzzy feeling inside knowing you're helping those less fortunate who can't afford insurance cause they need to sit on the couch and smoke weed to help their sore backs from spending too much time sitting on the couch smoking weed! (disclaimer: no disrespect to those that actually have chronic pain and, or terminal illness, in which medical weed may help).

I saw a homeless person a few days ago with a sign saying, "it's okay! I am about to get free healthcare now" I couldn't snap a pic in time, but what a sad sight.

Art you crack me up "obozo"

Since us poor taxed to the hilt working folk pay for the homeless guy's health care, I guess we can stop any and all other hand outs to them since dear leader Kim Yung Obozo will take care of it from here.
Now how is that for a thread derailment
