It's time...
« on: May 15, 2014, 02:30:39 PM »
Well the time has finally arrived. After 4-1/2 years of building, from periods of intense motivation to complete burnout. The save, buy, build sequence has finally endured its last cycle and the buggy is ready. I'm taking it out tomorrow for its first shake down run! Super excited and completely nervous all at the same time!

Good for ya komelika.  It's always a tense day for the first run.  You'll do OK i'm sure.  Just take it easy and don't stray to far form the trailer and tow vehicle eyes.

PS

You got plenty of time now to go to LS.  Only about a ten hour drive right?  When we stay a the maky dee's there in Mory on our way home from Glamis, if we get on the road by about eight I think we are only ten from dumping our black tanks at LS then two more on home to Clearwater.

Once I get the rest of the sand outta my eyes ill fig out who started this cluster. Then :-*. Well it just adds to the lies at campfire.

If u could make shakedown LS that be great. I bet we could find room for a tent in one of the groups site. No charge of course. Good luck and I hope u didn't mount rack upside down for first ride.  LMAO

komelika:  Man I would love to make LS and meet everyone. You guys are a hell of group and I couldn't have built it without your help. I can definitely see making the trip next year. I have a sabbatical coming due and I'll be looking for things to do anyway. It may even be painted by then!

Carry on....
