I honestly think that Roselle is too easy, Foster is too small (but challenging) and Busses is still fun but no variety.

And we haven't seen a few guys that I thought were going to stick around.
Yeah I hear ya... on both accounts. I think to some degree, we've gotten better as drivers overall and perhaps better builders too; scale and performance. So that makes Roselle easier. Maybe its just a Class 1/Class 2 scale place.

Neil where was the spot you thought you saw in Algoquin? I need to check out some of the places around here more thoroughly... just lot going on until I get back from Vegas!

It will get done.

kankakee river looks fun but it's a drive.

I do know of some very cool spot in BUsse. One has a nice shallow river. There is also a huge hill. I used to mountain bike at Busse alot. Almost to big to make it to the top.

I was planning on doing the TTC there last year but went a differnt route.


Trust me Busse Woods has a lot more than any of you guys have ever seen.

Trust me

Here's a little something something for Rick...

Dropped the 4runner off at the Toyota dealer to get maintenance done and saw the following...







I know it ain't blue, but oh well!

Don't know how much they want for it, but I looked and the frame is pretty rusted out. And one of the leaf spring carriers was so rusted it was only partially hanging on by one set of u-bolts.

I don't think the TTC will work for me. I don't like the idea of have more than one day to compete for a complete even.

I feel every event should be done in one day. Gives people no time to change or fix things at home.

Fix on the course or DNF.

I do wanna get out and hang.

Thats cool chris!

Saydee.. You scared?

Im pretty sure we are going to fit entire events into one day. Just, not sure about how many events in one day. Thats why we'll have to have several days of events.
