more frame design than anything. Did you see how that frame bent? didn't look boxed to me.

But, Give Maly and I a can of Ether, a 1/2 Impact, and plasma cutter. We'll get 'er runnin again. We've rebuilt worse in Polaris form.

so, my plan is coming down wed evening, probably around 6-7pm. Is there a time zone change or is that near Chicago?


anyways, it will be me and a friend, if we can arrange a setup where we can pay the $7 per person to stay that night, that would be very helpful. (whomever has extra space) Afterwards, we have a site of our own booked from thursday to sunday.

heres my inventory list.

Socket set, metric and imperial
wiring kit with connectors and some spare fuses
family first aid kit
gym bag with toiletry's and change of clothing
Gorpo with spare battery and a few mounts
GPS
spare fluids, brake, oil, ATF, coolant, diff
RTV sealant
possibly some firewood
Possibly my 110 ATC
truck tent
air mattress
friends bags (whatever she brings, probably everything and the kitchen sink)

****, gonna need a small trailer for all this lol.


mike will have his flux 110, a few tools, fire ext. and his terra jet. he will also have his 4x4 08 ranger but its not going into the dunes.

There isn't a time change.

I need to get with Maly to get our list set.
But i'll probably bring some basic tools (like if i was going Junkyarding)
I've always got a first aid kit in the truck.
I forgot about firewood, I can bring a ton of that ****. I cut my own.
Either my Predator or my Grizzly. we'll see what i can drive.
plus my other misc needed things. I'm still technically in college, So i can bring a pair of khakis and be set for a week....

I know in Missouri firewood cannot cross county lines, I forgot how much the fine is though. I don't know how other states do it.

I got news for you, you don't have to be in college to rock the same pair of khakis for a week....
I can't bring fire wood, stupid ash bug...

Makes sense to move it back, would you really wanna be going faster than that at the base of a hill? I remember what happened a couple years ago when I hit hard at the base of the last hill in the directionals.

You cannot move wood out of a quarantined area in MI. you can legally move Pine anywhere in the state. Any other Hardwood is pretty sketch. I haven't found anything about out of state wood yet. we're not going that far north. Its more west than anything. I usually only burn Pine. I mill out the good stuff and sell or use it.

And yea Andy. you let me know how that out of state wood works for ya

yeah I thought about pallets,or breaking them down for quick fire. but they leave behind tons of nails and staples. I have a bunch of cedar cutoffs from work I could bring,just watch for flying embers!

Cedar is awesome. plus it smells better than pine. I'll probably stuff the firewood around everything else in the bed of my truck. I'm gonna need bigger springs by the time its all over.
