I work at Great Lakes Forge, maker of the Lock N Roll hitch. If you have any questions about our new hitches, I'd be happy to answer them.

It was order #44. It was a toss up between the Lock N Roll and another brand.
It boiled down to the fact that I liked the engineering of your company's product better.

Your order is packed and heading out the door! I'm glad you like the new hitch design. A lot of great customer feedback can be thanked for that!

Just an update...... I will be doing a pre-run right after Memorial weekend. I will report back with road and trail conditions with pictures.
Hi there Goldie,
I was wondering how many miles, or maybe hours is better, out you are going. Any good steams/body's of water on the way?

Hey JDXX: Good to hear that you're considering joining us. It's a great group of people.

We're going for the pre-run in the next couple of days so we will have a better idea of timing, miles, etc. There are at least 3 creek crossings that we crossed when we tried to make the run a couple of months ago (had to turn back because of snow). We will post info and photos when we get back. Since you're coming a long way, you may consider camping. We plan on doing a loop and where we're planning on coming out has numerous campgrounds. Just an idea. Campgrounds are at a lower elevation, so it will be a lot warmer.

Here's are a couple of pictures from our initial pre-run of Snow Mountain we did on March 3rd when we had to turn back because of too much snow. The mountain you see in the distance on one of the photos is Hull Mountain. Also, two pictures of the creeks we crossed.

Thanks for the reply Goldie,

That sure is some pretty country. Yeah if we go would be camping. I asked about water because my wife and I like to trap crawdads. Hopefully my Jeep will be all broke in and ready by then. I will keep an eye on here.

I've seen areas with crawdads and have always wanted to eat them. Hear they are the "redneck lobster" which I would like ! How do you cook them? Just boil or steam them?

OHHH man they are goood

So far we have only boiled them. Basically just treat them like any other fresh seafood. My grandma keeps asking me to fry her some up (that's how she ate them as a kid in Oklahoma). Tis the season and I want to find some new hunting grounds. I've heard tell that in the warmer areas (off the coast) they can get big, real BIG.

Talk to the rice farmers. When I lived in the Sac valley they would let people come in and gather them. We used to get a couple large coolers full. Then you put them in a container of water to let them clean out. As the water gets nasty switch them to a different container and rotate them till the water stays clean. Then boiling is the best but they can be done like any other shrimp or lobster. We boiled them in a 60 qrt kettle, with a basket in it, crab boil, corn on the cobb, red potatoes lemons and onions. When done you dump the goods on a outdoor table covered in news papper, crack a cold beer and enjoy. Break the head off add a drop of Tabasco suck the juice then eat the tail. Woo some good eatin'. I miss it.

In North Carolina we could get mudd bugs that were about 3-5 inches. It didn't take so many to make dinner.

Keep your boogger hook off the bang button!
When all else fails... ham radio is there!
