Each year Macyâ€™s looks far and wide to find the best drivers in the world to drive their golf cart turbocharged Hemi big block floats in the day after Thanksgiving day parade. Â Instead what they get is us, a group of wheelers.Â Oh and they are just regular golf carts with big fans in them that inflate a balloon thing. Continue reading “Macys Parade Nov 2016”
Ok ok, im not a morning person.
Today, was not so usual for us.Â Our normally prepared events, were interrupted by another matter on Friday, so Saturday morning at Oâ€™Dark Thirty, we discover neither rig had gas, and theÂ Zuk had no spare tire or winch attached.Â OK, we will need to leave a bit earlier than planned to get gasâ€¦.then, we discovered that both the trail rigs Disco passes had expired!Â Well, we certainly canâ€™t go out without those, so I jumped online to purchase online, and have our confirmation #â€™s on hand, if asked.Â At the disco pass website, I find a message saying â€śIâ€™m sorry, we are not able to offer Disco pass purchases online right now, please check back at a later timeâ€ť.Â Well, this wonâ€™t do as we need to be out of the house in a few minutes to get gas, and still get to WV before our 10am meet up time.Â So, out of the house we run, so we can gas up, then stop and get disco passes.Â At the gas station, we find that Gary has forgotten his wallet at home.Â Hoping this is not how the rest of our day will go, I run for Disco passes, while Gary runs for his wallet, and we meet back up at the Ace Hardware parking lot, to blow the Pop Cycle Stand!

Unfortunatly I was not going to be able to lead the Labor Day Weekend run to Liberty so in lue of that I offered to lead the run on 8/20 and have it be at Liberty. Since there was nothing else planned for that run on the calendar it all worked out. The Family and I took the day off from work Friday and headed over early in order to get a camping spot since we wanted to relax a bit and this seemed like a great chance to do so.

He had extensive knowledge of the â€śOld Reiterâ€ť and was also curious as to what was up there. Continue reading “Reiter July 2016”

It has been a while since the Tamers were at Manastash. For one reason or another it just never seemed to happen because of weather too hot, wild fire, or just timing. There always seemed to be something preventing the club from going back to Manastash. Well this year that was not the case. The Tamers decided that the weekend just before the 4th would be the weekend that the Tamers go back to the Manastash. Continue reading “Manastash July 2016”
Casey and I (Gary) arrived at the campground about 3pm and saw that Bruce and Debbie had already gotten there and set up their camp.

So â€“ if you take a Timber Tamer out of the timber is there anything left to tame?

The Reiter Run started early for Janessa and I. We pre-gamed everything and put the wheeler on the trailer on Friday to make it easier Saturday morning. Still up and adam long before the buttcrack of dawn we were on the road by 6:30AM. We arrived in much better time than expected so we hung out and waited for Scotty to open the gate while I played a wheelin’ game on my phone (no surprise I’m sure).

Trail Report â€“ Denny Creek 2016
The Back Story (Prequel) Caseyâ€™s Fishinâ€™ Trip
So â€“ at the Thursday night meeting â€“ when it came time to announce this monthâ€™s run â€“ Casey went on a little fishing trip.
â€śOkay â€“ who wants to be the run leader?â€ť
The previously noisy room went silent. I could almost hear the crickets chirping in the back. (Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?)
I knew she was fishing for me â€“ the Bull Muskie Moose â€“ to hop up and snap on the line. Hey â€“ this Moose wasnâ€™t born (or entered the club) just yesterday. She was going to have to spend a little more time compelling me to raise my hand. Continue reading “Denny Creek Feb 2016”
