Just read that the body at red rock was a positive id of ron Kirk. At least the family has some closure. Peeps need to be careful out there, one loose foot and it can end bad.

Looks like in that situation it did. It's a long fall from the top of Turtlehead.

Spent the last couple days getting into mines again. Cool stuff in there. I'll post them up another time when I'm bored.

Something I do almost every day is look at old pictures to help with my memory issues. Here is a picture I came across taken along Rocky Gap on November 27, 2010. I didn't know anyone here yet. Is it one of you?

I was up on a mountainside when he passed heading up.

Forgot to post the stupid truck build of the day. A full size Dodge Ram diesel rally build. Front fender flares go right into the stock front bumper with a ton of lights protruding out front and complete with fake beadlocks. I notice that a lot of people do that to their trucks around here that wouldn't be able to do anything those parts are made for like it's a style or something. I saw a new Tundra the other day with only the front fender flares and it looked incredibly stupid.

So I scraped it up and made a stew out of it at home.
You are deeply disturbed- and I love it.

This page is a trip!

For adoption: both dogs to someone with time to appreciate and be good master to. I simply do not have the time they require. Between work, house projects, baby(soon to be babies) and other obligations, I cannot provide the time they need to be happy. I regretfully offer them to someone who will care for them and be good to them. They are well mannered and behaved around people. The Shepard is good in a car, but the retriever pukes. Pm if interested, and sorry for spamming this thread, but I know most of you are good people...the ones who aren't know who they are

I wish I could help you with your dogs. We have three we have rescued and they are a handful. Maybe Polka could take them since his pig is gone.

On another note... I'm an idiot. Replaced right side axle seal in the front axle this afternoon. As I was sitting here on the couch at about 10:30, I remembered I never torqued the bearing caps. Many curses came from my mouth. Just got done removing the cover and taking care of it. Wouldn't be a big deal if I didn't have the ox locker cable to fight with. I swear it's like wrestling an alligator. Well it's like I would imagine wrestling an alligator would be cuz I've never wrestled an alligator. And stuff.

Dog are very hard to handle with newborns, so I feel your pain.

Our kids are finally getting old enough to play with the dogs and they both like to hold the leash when we take them on walks. But the dogs fully understand that the kids are a great food source, which is totally annoying. Nothing like you daughter feeding the dog the snacks that you just gave them, then standing there crying because she does not have any more left.

I guess to each his own. I doubt you would tell BJ Baldwin his Dodge daily driver was a stupid truck? I had the same Carli suspension on my Dodge before I sold it and yes I used the truck. I understand that some if not most are posers. Im providing the pit for Trophy Truck #53 at the Mint 400 next week. Here is the tow rig and the TT....funny thing is, as pretty as the tow rig is (2011 Dodge 3500 Diesel), it serves it's duty as prerunner too and Fully Gets It!
