    Today's fun was pulling Adam's M813 out of a rough spot before the next snow storm. Broken front axle components suspected, the M916 barely noticed it was there. Videos don't come close to accurately portraying how steep it was, or how icy and rutted.

    Great teamwork today

    Event Announcement.

    Friday, July 28 2017 8AM

    Epping McDonalds on 125

    OUR MAIN EVENT The Weare NH Convoy is happening this year on Friday July 28 2017. Last year's convoy was such a huge success that I have had multiple inquiries and requests to lead it again. Our leg of the convoy will start at the Epping McDonalds on 125. From there we head west on 101 to the Massabesic lake parking area, where we hope to rendezvous with Northboud Massachustes members coming up 93. From there it will proceed north on 93 to 89 west. We are hoping to arrive on the Weare Rally field no later than Noon on Friday. Weather you are planning on coming up for the day or the weekend please consider joining us on this ride of epic porportions! Meetings with individual trucks along the route are possible providing that you are capable of seamlessly entering the convoy without it stopping. Convoy speed is 50mph minimum, both lead and tail trucks will be displaying signage. Please post here or feel free to message me with any questions.

    Hey General, I now have a set of gov issue convoy light for my M923 and hope to have them installed for the rally and convoy. Last year we used your convoy ahead sign on my M105 trailer as I was bringing up the rear. Can do the same this year if you want or go with something different. Probably figure that out at the rally point. Looking forward to this years trip.
