Anyone been to westside Wed? From what I hear it's not exactly something that really would appeal to me but I think it's something worth hitting up with my truck to possibly get more sales exposure. Anyone know???

I've never heard of it.

I think it's more of a sport bike/lowered car scene but I've heard some of the offroad crowd going...

Its still sitting in my side yard, that thing ended up being way too heavy duty for my needs. haha I have been meaning to send you a message to ask if you want it back or whatnot.

There are some offroaders, I know Baldwin had a meetup there one Wednesday. Hell, FukuBurger is there every week that is more than enough reason to go there.

I'm not gonna go sit in a parking lot of lowered imports and sport bikes for fukuburger. I've got better crap to do then that if that's all it is... Honestly I'm so anti most of the prerunner scene here in Vegas that I'd probably park away from most of them anyways if there was a group. I just want to fly the "for sale" signs though as much as I can when the crowd is right. I wish the prerunner scene here was more like Az or SoCal but it's just people with ****ty trucks and huge egos which is why you don't see me really hanging out with other "prerunner" people much. I love the trucks, dislike the owners mostly though! LOL

If you don't want to store it I can take it back, if you want to keep it you can.

Can't you just put it on the curb for the metal fairies to take? Those random metal art pieces you had me build Sunday morning will be on my curb tonight...

I finally did. 8 months later. This took a while to make, and it's my first try at doing anything like this. So, please, I welcome feedback.

It's a little long, 12 minutes, but has a good soundtrack and some nice scenery! You all know how i post the full 'story' of any of my trips, and i attempted to do the same thing with this video.

I hope you enjoy, and again, please feel free to offer feedback so I can do better next time.

P.S. As usual, youtube butchered the quality, but its not too bad.

Loved it Marn! You must have hit success at the right time, all the aspens changing colors. And what's up with the giant beetle, is that what you kids are calling it these days?

The vid did make me a little homesick.

I knew where they were going to be giving it away at and even had the time to cruise down there. LOL I actually really like their show! The one with the leafblowers in the back of the car is great!

Oh and in case anyone needs proof that we have fun in the race truck, I guess it's not new no more...





And yes, that's all the bushing that came out, the sleeve from inside the bushing in pieces and the loop that's broke off from the end of the main leaf... LOL good times!!! Guess it won't be back on the ground thursday night since we need to get some leaf springs...
