    25-Year Anniversary

    This week makes 25-years of Explorer ownership. It was late in October of 1990when I bought my first car (91 Sport). It has been spanked, rode hard and put away wet on more than one occasion. It has been a great toy. Now I can get and antique license plate. Any others in the 25-year club?

    How many Budweisers?

    I post this question without any seriousness. As some of us know, the 2015 F-150 will be manufactured with an aluminum body. Being the dedicated tree hugger that I am, I save my empty cans for recycling. So my question, how many Budweisers will I have to drink for one F -150?

    George Washington National Forest June 2009 Run

    We are trying to get a late spring run in the GWNF. I recommend Stoney Run on Saturday and Shoe Creek on Sunday. Both trails are about 3-hours each. Passable with stock junk, better with some modification. We should be able to camp either at the end of Stoney Run at Bald Knob or at Crabtree...

    It is that time of year again, time when a young mans fancy turns to mud. If you have not experience this nuckelheaded activity, and like seeing a bunch of rednecks trash their junk in the goo hole, then the time has come. The mud bog is in King William County, Virginia on Route 600...
