I got to drive today!

I'm so happy, after 2 months of frustrating weather and repairs, I finally got to drive my Jeep today... for the first time since I've owned it. Sure I've driven it around the parking lot but never out on the roads. I drove to work today and man did I get a lot of waves! The only bad thing was I noticed that I'm leaking oil out of one of my rear wheels. No biggie though, I'll fix that when I swap out the drums. Anyway, just had to share my excitement!

Yeah, I'll do that. I've got an Exercise that I'm playing in (military crap) for the next 2 weeks but after that I should be good to go. Thanks again

Hey man you VIRGINians seem to be havin' all the fun. You know your neighbors to the south can play hard as well. I was born with a blue tip wrench in my hand. As soon as Turkey season is over we need to all meet at Tellico. I would love to meet and ride with you fellow East Coasters.

I've still got about a month or so before Big Lime is up and running again. I plan on a shakedown run sometime in early June up at Shoecreek or Conway.. then, I think a few of us are going to Paragon in early July. Probably hit Tellico late July or early August. Can't wait!

I'll definitely have to work on my steering before that. Anything above 45/50 is SCARY. Lots of wandering, I'm sure it's an easy fix though......
