Well work has been crap since the ride. Haven't had a chance to be on here at all.

Anyway, it was a great ride. It was a little cold in the mornings but warmed up nicely during the day. One of us really needs a go pro. We could of had some great footage. I got stuck trying to stay dry by going around a mud hole. It was actually gravel going straight through but slop on the side. Just my luck. Got winched. Then ran into winching machine (yeah Chuck same one that winched you) and broke DG bumper. Rode with nude frontend rest of weekend.
Got to ride a commander X. Its bad ass. Oh, that winch will also pull a burried commander out(no i didn't get it stuck).
Like I said, wished we had a go pro. Great weekend and fun was had by all. Hate all the TN guys missed it.

Where do ya'll ride at? I've got family in Bolivar so I'm down there quite a bit. I wouldnt mind trying out some new places. We always go to Royal Blue, or Brimstone, sometimes Coal Creek when I'm ready to replace parts:)

How long would it take you to get to Land Between the Lakes? We might be able to get a weekend down there this spring.

I cant go for a while. I broke my mastercylinder putting my ASV levers on and the new one wont be in till next week. I also have the Teryx tore down to do a 4" chop on the roll cage. So it will be a few before I can go. We have a Royal Blue ride set up for Jan 21. We tried to go this past Sunday but was afraid to get on 75 outside of Knoxville. So instead of riding I was breaking parts and making a mess of a perfectly good UTV! I might try to get a ride in after New Years, maybe LBL for a quick fix.

I hate to hear that. I don't have any spares you could use either. I tried to break mine today too. I was just trying to clean the air filter. That stupid phillips head screw that holds the bracket in the air box stripped the head out. Finally got it out and replaced it with a SS cap screw. That won't happen again.
I'm probably gonna take my step son to LBL this Friday. He is still learning on the 90. This will be his first "official" ride. I was still to afraid to take him with us to Coal Creek. Hope you get ur stuff fixed soon.
BTW keep me updated bout Royal Blue. We may want to go if the funds allow.

Thanks Nikki. I have a couple more from today I'll try to get on, or I'll just send them to you since you do such an amazing job. Those phone pics actually look better than I thought they would.

The above pics are from 12/29 on trail 16. The riding conditions changed every few miles which made for a challenging but awesome ride. Started out a little muddy but as we went higher it changed to ice then snow further up. Rode several trails then went up to see the wind mills. Gravel rode was solid ice, cold as hell, wind howling, and we were in the clouds. You can get to within 50 yards of the closest mill but we couldn't even see its base. Could hear it spinning though. The last trail we hit yesterday on the way to the truck was 22. Its was on the sunny side of the mountain and the ground had thawed. Long story short, it was sticky mud that would sling up off the fronts in clumps bigger than softballs. Had to stop several times to shovel those stock heel guards off. It piled up so much it would push my feet off the pegs. Tires even grew 3 or 4 inches in diameter. Today everthing had thawed. It was MUDDDDIEEE. First thing off the trailer I had to shovel about a 100 pounds of mud off the heal guards and fenders. Wasn't long it was back. The trails we rode yesterday were a different challenge today. I did get stuck once on a big hill. Stupid dunflops (bald at that) turned me crossways. Almost couldn't get going again. Kendas should be here tomorrow.
We had alot of fun and no one got hurt. Headed to LBL in the morning. It will take months to get that thing clean again.
