Where is that? Wanna say Black Rock Desert, but the mountains don't look quite right.

If you guys don't listen to C&W, this is worth a read.

Brad Paisley's "I'm Still a Guy"

When you see a deer you see Bambi
And I see antlers up on the wall
When you see a lake you think picnics
And I see a large mouth up under that log
You're probably thinking that you're gonna change me
In some ways well maybe you might
Scrub me down, dress me up aww but no matter what
Remember, I'm still a guy

When you see a priceless French painting
I see a drunk, naked girl
You think that ridin' a wild bull sounds crazy
And I'd like to give it a whirl
Well love makes a man do some things he ain't proud of
And in a weak moment I might walk your sissy dog, hold your purse at the mall
But remember, I'm still a guy

And I'll pour out my heart
Hold your hand in the car
Write a love song that makes you cry
Then turn right around knock some jerk to the ground
'Cause he copped a feel as you walked by

I can hear you now talkin' to your friends
Saying, "Yeah girls he's come a long way"
From draggin' his knuckles and carryin' a club

And buildin' a fire in a cave
But when you say a backrub means only a backrub
Then you swat my hand when I try
Well now, what can I say at the end of the day
Honey, I'm still a guy

And I'll pour out my heart
Hold your hand in the car
Write a love song that makes you cry
Then turn right around knock some jerk to the ground
'Cause he copped a feel as you walked by

These days there's dudes gettin' facials
Manicured, waxed and botoxed
With deep spray-on tans and creamy lotiony hands
You can't grip a tacklebox

Yeah with all of these men linin' up to get neutered
It's hip now to be feminized
I don't highlight my hair
I've still got a pair
Yeah honey, I'm still a guy

Oh my eyebrows ain't plucked
There's a gun in my truck
Oh thank God, I'm still a guy

Otherwise that was pretty tough on things, and I don't see that as a positive way to use land at all.... throw 1,000 hp at it instead of learning how to drive a technical section?
Correct - no quad use on any public land. That also means no 1000hp monster buggies.

Our country wants to register everything.

I like the US approach. Freedoms first. Then fight to keep them. In Aust we have nanny statism sorted. It's a joke. Quad sales are a trickle here.

We have no formal bike only trails - all bikes must be fully road registered.

That sounds awesome !!

But how would a landowner get insurance so he wouldn't get sued? Alcohol, high hp and risk equals danger.

The only way down here that is possible is private land and loads of insurance - def ZERO drinking.

So you have to be skinny to have fun? or is it you have to be skinny to be OK at all? mind if I mention that is a frighteningly common boulder attitude. They got over not being young anymore, but Fat? Much less a beer belly? Don't get me going on that bullshit. It's far closer to real evil than you might think.

The idea isn't to get to the top of the hill necessarily, it's to bounce the car around, break it, fix it, do it some more.

The envirobullshitters can kiss my ass. At 18 I was more sophisticated than any of them in the ways of wildlands. I'm 54 and nothing's changed. They're still full of it.

Did you notice that's all third or better growth forest. Every inch has been clear cut. Every tree cut again and again. Every last square centimeter stomped by people again and again. Get over it. It's tough country. We will be long gone and forgotten and there will be more trees coming up.

Did you notice the VERY large structure at the top of the screen? They aren't out in the wilds somewhere. It is pretty country tho'. Some of it looks like a construction site or new road cut.

Those good 'ol boys think about as much of you as you do of them. Don't forget that bell curve, there's more of them. That rear steering setup was slick though. That thing is very purpose built and it isn't for swamps.

Spent a day once swilling beer and roaring around the slag dumps outside of Leadville in a fast dune buggy. it was fun, we were drunk ( and then we got a lot more drunk) and we survived. We didn't care what anyone thought. I still don't care what people think. Half of them are stupider than the other half and the smarter half isn't real bright. I've spent a lifetime paying for that so I figure I get to shoot off my mouth.

Dammnit Opie, I had to turn off NPR and put on a county station. You have ridden with me and despite the pipes, you didn't seem to mind...or hid it well.



I have seen organized belt sander racing. I have seen parents spend half a mill. on campers and round track go carts for 7 year olds. There are folks that Jeep, ride, hunt, bird watch, hug trees, hunt mushrooms, collect rocks, ride horses and bicycles, all kinds of folks out doing all kinds of things. The point is this is FFFFKKKing AmerKa. Pursuit of happiness. I agree sort of to this missive above. My nephew is a member of the Appalachia Ridge Runners in NE Kentucky. They own 4000 acres of trees, bogs, mined areas, tertiary growth, most or all hard woods are gone. They have places like that where they can rip up the ground, dig massive trenches, bust up rocks and destroy trees. Kool

They are also incredible stewards of their land. If a guy wants to build a rip roaring "rock crawler" with twin steering, then I say God Bless AmerKa and pass the ammunition. I appreciate his liberty and freedoms to do so. There is a place and time for everything. I bet this location is private land. Sure beats ripping up BLM land or private property-no trespassing kind of juicy liberal screaming thing.

The one side that says, motorcycles or whatever are bad. They don't understand that their opinion is just that. Just because I don't like what someone does, you know Polka music players, doesn't mean the Polka folks should not play Polka. Anyone have any good Polka?

Huba huba to Bubba in his $50K forest killer and really the only crawler I have seen splatter up a cliff. That dude was riding or driving trials, hopping and positioning, then splatters a ledge. FFFKKK.
