Hi, I joined this forum back in 2011 when a group of us from Michigan came out to wheel. We wheeled with Pizzaboy. Unfortunately I only got in a day of wheeling before I had to head home for a family medical issue. Now a group of us are coming out again this Memorial day week to wheel. Just popping in to say hi.

Here a couple pics of my rig.

How is your skid plate / transmission situation? ;-)

Oh, so you remember? LOL Ya, that sucked. I actually got home and wheeled it the day after Mom's surgery at a local place. I was working with a local county park on a man made rock course and they wanted me to do some testing that week. I figured since there was a big ass excavator right there, it couldn't hurt to go for it so here it is with one bolt holding the bell housing to the block.

Just bouncing back in here a year too late. Wanted to say thanks again to you guys for your hospitality. We enjoyed the evening festivities. :). And a great day on Hal John's with Ryan and Keith. Hoping to get back out there in another year.

That said, I wanted to post up and say sorry for some drama on your facebook page. We had a bad experience with one of our guys and it's coming to light on line. Definitely not cool. Some of you may remember the guy who broke his oil sensor and had to be dead winched out of Hal John's. He nor his copilot never got out to say thanks to all of you guys, nor to help with the spilled oil cleanup. I hope that is not a reflection on the rest of us.

I hope your Dakota Challenge goes well this year.
Jim
