Now I am thoroughly curious to see if MoC accent will rub off on Billy or will that gawdawfull West Peoria accent rub off on MoC? Or will they kinda rub off on each other creating some kinda gawd awful accent!
George don't you worry one bit about Bill rubbing off on MoC and ruining his southern drawl. Bill's coming here pretty soon again and I'm gonna start schoolin him on how real folks talk. My dogs even noticed how he sounds and since I like Papa Billy and want to keep him as a friend I'm forced to help get him on track, don't want the dogs peeing on his leg or something uncouth like that. Usually they won't but after I told them he lives in Illinois they got a bit of an attitude towards him, they listen to too much talk radio here in the shop. Anyway I give credit to MoC too, he's from way down South and he's real accentuated if you know what I mean and since you and me has talked on the phone you know I have a southern accent too so the both of us ought to be able to pull him our way. It aint just the talking though, Bill's gotta learn to slow down a bit, that makes him talk fast. I figure next time he comes here I'll show him what slow down is all about. You ever watch grass grow? That's a good start. If you want a bit faster just sit out in a corn field at night and listen to the stalks grow, a little faster than grass growin. So don't worry George, Bill aint ruined me yet and he aint gonna ruin ole MoC either.
Whew Jim I am relived, I was worried about the accent thing but hey Ya-ll got it handled.
And Matt yes I live in Chicago but I lost my roots here long ago I left in 74 spent 8 years in Hawaii and the rest of the time in LA CA before moving back here a couple years ago. I moved back here to start looking down south maybe Nashville or or AK even Texas to retire to. So I may have been born here but I dont say Chicaaaago or sawsage or any of that nonsense.
Hell I dont even follow the Bears I follow the Raider's and that my friend probably make you my enemy since I presume your a Denver fan!
MoC since this is the first time you will meet Bill I want to describe his personality and I am thinking Jim will agree.
If you have ever watched AX Men you may know who Shelby Stanga is so take that and mix in a bit of Calvin from Calvin and Hobbs and mix in a bit of Daffy Duck. That will be a close approximation of what Bill is like.
You pretty well nailed it George . MoC be careful where there's food around if you're between him and Bill, he might get carried away and knock you down. I think it's the fireman in him, they eat all the time at the firehouse you know and clean them trucks. Bill I've been wonderin if you all grease that pole you slide down so you get better speed?

That just sounds funny until the Armor All makes it so slick that the Proby hits the floor so hard he's injured and worthless and then Chief blows a gasket. Don't ask. It's a good thing we grow up and get a little smarter. Most of us, anyway.
The Superlift park has some great trails. I hope MoC has more pics than I do.
It was great meeting and spending the time with MoC today. im looking forward to the next tkme. Almost 36 hours! MoC was also kind enough to bring me a couple pounds of boudin, thank you very much! Vicki and i sure to enjoy it.
Lucky for me there wernt any parts for MoC to take home to sell! And for the most part all four tires of my 5 stayed on Tera firma.
Did I mention it was a great day. Thanks for coming buddy.
We did need to make a couple of trail repairs. Pics tell the story.
Yep, that's MoC shoe.
Sorry about your shoe! But I didn't say it would be a easy day.

Home again home again... Only 3 hours and 20 min so the drive is not bad.
Had a GREAT time Bill!! I am glad I didn't have my jeep with me, it was much better to be able to ride and talk with you all day...plus I am a wuss and my jeep is to pretty to bounce of rocks and trees on those 4's we rode this afternoon.
Great group of people that came with Bill, all nice guys with cool jeeps.
Ill post up a bunch of pictures and some video tomorrow, but here are a few teasers.
