Traditionally, my wife goes shopping with her mom on Black Friday, so I have the kids.

Is anyone planning to do any trail rides on the Friday after Thanksgiving?  I was thinking of perhaps checking out some new areas in Mark Twain by Cassville, MO.

Looks like I'm going on another three day trip!  Leaving on Friday.  Jaston is leading it and I think we will be doing the Frog Bayou trail to start.

I wish I could... but I'll be watching the kids, and I really can't afford to go again this quickly...

I might be up for something super cool Sun after Turkey day.

I cut out the last skid plates this AM for the buggy.

Motor is running and it's driveable.  Steering and brakes are working good.

Tranny shifts sweet, tcase shifters working, might need some tweeking.

Cut brakes work enough to stop it...

I have maybe 5-6 hours of work left on the buggy before it's maiden voyage.

- skids

- brake booster (the source of the vacuum leak was causing some nasty running behavior)

- Bump stops / limit straps.

So...I'm thinking I can take it out probably the Sunday after turkey day.  I have family things to do so can't go Thurs - Sat.

NOTE: This may be a trip where i get it off the trailer just long enough for something to break and then winch it back to the
