Hit it @ 70mph. I'm guessing fast enough to just run it over then kick it into the air.

That tread came off about a minute before I went through there. The guy was just getting out of his rig after he lost it. Hey powr, how'd you like the headwind on the way home?

He was still on the side of the road getting it fixed when we went through. Now thinking about it, I know one of the mobile diesel repair guys out here. Wonder if it was the same guy that was helping the driver.

The headwind was nuts! Hood dancing like it was going out of style!

Once I get the money for some, they are on the list! Greg even pulled up beside me asking if I could see his hood fluttering. It was bouncing like a 1963 Impala owned by a rap star.

Held it between 3/4 to WOT most of the way home! The wind and dust was crazy! DMGIFF, you missed out on some fun times in the sand! Getting stuck, clutch roasting, and general disarray! Lol

The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!

My wife found this little guy all coiled up, scared him when I took his pic... Was about 6-8" long, just a youngin' sidewinder. Cool enough though!
