    Default Funny Rally-Prep Story...

    So I got my M1009 all fixed up from the last rally's carnage. My buddy has a Bronco that I helped him fix up over the summer that he was going to bring to the rally with me. A few days ago he texted me these pictures:

    IMG_1560.jpgIMG_1559.jpg

    His Bronco burned to the ground playing around in his back yard. We was trying to exit his creek and something caught fire on his truck. Burned the truck almost completely. He lives relatively close to town so I think some neighbors called the fire department to put it out. Notice the foam around the truck in the first picture.

    Sucks, but he is being a great sport and mainly laughing it off. He didn't have a lot of money in it (just a few hundred) but was really looking forward to wheeling it at Haspin. I went over today to help him pull it out of the creek with my M1009.

    The best part is I helped him swap out his gas tank a while back and when we were doing it we didn't have the right metal straps to secure the tank. I told him to just ratchet strap it to get it driving and he made fun of my redneck get-r-done mentality. I told him it was a permanent repair and the ratchet straps would out live his truck...

    IMG_1556.jpgIMG_1557.jpgIMG_1558.jpg

    Gas tank and ratchet straps are about the only thing that didn't get ruined on his Bronco

    He says he still coming. He's driving my M1009 down for me so I can drive my tractor. I told him I'll put a fire extinguisher in it.
    No MV's at the moment. Just a sweet square-body 3/4 ton Suburban w/ 57,000 miles on it.

    Dang!

    Glad no one was injured.
    Stuff can be replaced. People... not so much.

    Praying all goes well from this point on.

    Tell him no matter what he will have fun at haspin. Not to worry about the truck. Any machine will break eventually and as long as he is fine that's all that matters.

    Hopefully we can make a day trip happen later in October!

    Then again in November, and December...

    I like wheeling when the leaves have fallen. Can see to get around better (until the sun drops)

    Well miss you this time. Hope to catch you at the next one.

    Does anybody have an 11.00-20 tire they're willing to sell and bring to the rally? I haven't had any luck finding a spare tire close to me. I don't care about whether or not it's bias-ply, radial, whatever. Just need something not dry rotted. I can bring my own 6-lug wheel if it's on something else and needs transferred.

    Anyone have anything like that? PM me your price!
