"But it is fun to think about her blasting the crap off of my junk parts with a sand blaster. Haha. She looks hot in goggles and a face mask!"
What jumped off the page was "Blasting my JUNK!"
After 18 years of marriage you'll have more toys than goggles and masks. I uhm, agh...know a guy who fills his sandblaster w/tiny feathers and no nozzle. 90 PSI full body tickle!
BTW, lucdog & I managed to go right to our closets and have our powder blue leisure suits out in 30 seconds. We found white belts (Salvation Army), but the shoes are hard to find. We wanna look good for your big day. And maybe captivate a 1 night Shorty.

90 PSI is a little much for my junk, but 50 is about perfect, also, I don't are what you guys show up in (unless it a lack thereof) it'll be a good time

PS. It's raining so hard here we have flash flood warnings popping up everywhere this could get fun! There is also lightning crashing all around.

No flash floods, but it was nice to get a really good rain for once

In other news, we are going camping tonight through Sunday. I'm stoked about it, we really need a break. Hopefully we can find a campsite where we want to go. There is a cool 4x4 camping site at a lake near me, it's a mile in on a road that apparently challenges a stock 4x4. I've got the truck for this trip since the jeep has a bad tire and freeway driving is a little like operating a jack hammer. The truck has 34" Toyo MTs and truetracs front an rear, so it'll e a cakewalk getting in.

This about sums up my trip. I had an amazing time! We hiked over 13 miles and wheeled more than 16 miles of jeep trails and caught 6 beautiful rainbow trout. We will be going back!

Wow what a beautiful place.

My opinion on the trip, small tent, no electricity, no shower, fishing, off roading, and your still getting married!

OMG, THIS WOMAN IS A KEEPER!!!!!

She is for sure a keeper! I wanted as a number one rule a woman that would share my spirit of adventure and the outdoors, and I've been blessed with exactly that.

California people may call me a cry baby, but I had to register my OHVs (dirt bikes and a quad) today for the very first time in Nevada's history. The law was passed last year that all OHVs used in nevada must have an annual registration. This means I have to load up the bikes, take them to a certified DMV OHV check place (most OHV dealers are thus equipped), get my VIN, year, make, and model recorded, get that sheet motorized, pay for the notary, then send DMV a $20 check per OHV, then wait 30 days for my sticker... Annually. Nevada has changed so much in the last few years that she feels increasingly less like my home. Our state song states, "Home means Nevada to me." But those words are no longer true to me even though I've been here all my life. I guess most places change this much, but every year I seem to lose something I had as a kid that can't be replace.

Anyway, to the tune of roughly $120 a year, I can continue to enjoy Nevada's public land via OHV

1)If we crash..I'm a tea-totaler, so ya got a designated driver. Not that a sane person would get in a vehicle I care about, let alone a rental w/FULL coverage!
2Thanx for the vid, mucho!
Never met a DNR officer that could catch me. Even on a dual-sport. I always do stop after about 1/2 mile. But I make them earn it. No disrespect, just funning. I have my jacket, gloves, helmet to show I'm no threat. Most are glad to have been able to "open it up w/a reason". And it's over 300 acres of friends and family land. They usually know it's me when I rabbit. Come to think of that, I've not done that in a while, and never when kids are around.
3) I hate fees. I rotate my plate for my boat, landscape (midnite mover/go-carts) and bike trailer. I crazy glued pennys to the bolt slots for easy swaps.
