John and I decided to see just what the FZJ80 can do. We were impressed to say the least. :)

Make sure to turn down the volume because of the wind noise.

It's from an album called Aalborg Soundtracks and the song is named Breath machine.

Heck yes. Many of the roads we took hadn't been traveled in years and I have never seen so many pronghorn and moose in my life.
I think it would be fun as a club to have an annual run up to the Killpecker dunes. If you have never been it is like going to the great sand dunes times 20 and you can drive on them.:thumb:

Looks like fun Mike and John. Makes me reminisce about the Outlaws Run last year. I would love to get out there this time of year when it's a litle bit warmer. Wish I could get time away and join you next week Perry.

We took a week off :) Monday to Sunday.

I posted the pics on line. The standing rules for TT is that Todd won't publish anything that has been posted prior.

We have a route but the GPS overwrote it because it was too long! I can kinda tell you what general roads we took but the actual route is road X to road who knows to road unamed, etc. :D

If you posted them to Mud, Todd won't publish. If you only posted them here on RS, you will be fine for TT.
