I can offer a 2500 GMC truck to haul a bushhog if someone had that.

If you don't think riding mowers can hack it Im not sure of other options.

Anyone else out there with suggestions.

If there is a cost , as for the portapottie, then perhaps we can ask for small donations to cover expenses.

Hire someone to cut it?

Ya made me look...and apparently nobody does, but some guys think a custom Banks unit could be modified to work:
http://www.thumpertalk.com/topic/374042-70-hp-xr650l/

Check out this excerpt:
I got 76.8 h/p at the rear wheels at my last dyno run on my 717cc 650L motor that I run in a 400ex drag quad, All motor run, on methonal, big power is possible on the L motor, just how much do you want to spend, I've run a couple of 717's and am now building some 5 and 7 mil strokers, the power will be in the 80's easy, but of course parts will break now and then, but a whole season can be had on a big h/p motor, in the sand-drag world a year is pretty good yeild for the h/p being produced N/A, but at the same time I can build a good solid 720 that you can dune all day with h/p in the 60's with decent reliability on gas.....

I'm not sure I'd put too much faith in that last line particularly. But hey, I'm just a Random Dipwad, what do I know...

The gazoonies on that thread that are tryin to get Big Power out of their air-cooled Hondas admit that heat is always a major issue. Yeah no kiddin! I don't doubt 50+ naturally-aspirated RWHP is achievable with big displacement + big compression on RFVC motors, I just doubt the durability. I stand by my assertion that a motor like that oughta hold up for at least one Blackwater ride. And I'd be happy to volunteer my services for wheelie durability testing

I'd even buy the race gas

Folks have been asking for an EPIC ride for the Trot. More Dual Sport than Fastburn .

With that in mind - Saturday will be the big ride day. At trip up through Blackwater to visit the Lakes and other cool spots the State Forest has to offer. Lunch at Mickeys (seems the perfect place - besides being the ONLY place).

Friday and Sunday we can offer a "Military Stuff" Ride through Eglin and the Brox area - Eglin Permit is required for this ride.

What do you think?

Dammit, maybe I can find a way to convince mama to let me escape for a day ride. Maybe I'm playing with fire, nah, should be fine?
