    For your viewing enjoyment, some action shots from our last trip. Borrowed a buddies quad for my Dad to ride. He'd never rode a quad before but had a great time (68 yrs old). We trail rode Fri/Sat and rode around Norris Sun. It had rained a lot and was muddy and slick. I augered in a couple times and was glad I added the snorkel for some deep water. Once again people looked at the little truck, shook their heads, and said they never thought it was going to make it thru there.

    Some vids.

    Awesome pics! Did the bumper pop back into position after "meeting" that rock?

    Yes it did. I had to do some paint touch up though. The skid plate went under the darn rock. I'm thinking about welding a verticle strip of metal to the leading edge of the skid plate to protect the bumper better.

    Yep, you could see the smile through his helmet...

    Our favorite quote was "I like the puddles". :)

    I got him to ride a motorcycle for the first time at 62 and two weeks later took him to Bikeweek. Now he's gone w/ me the last six years. His identical twin brother (his excitement for the week is choir practice) thinks he's nuts.

    I recently sold a 99 Daihatsu to a guy in South Texas. He sold me his Kubota rtv 900.
    He's called me several times saying that was the best deal he has made in a long time. He loves his Daihatsu and will never get rid of it. He works the truck on a ranch and says it goes anywhere, hauls more payload, the heater was great during the winter ect, ect. Great trucks aren't they? And to think some people have never seen a mini truck.

    How in the *H*E*double hockey sticks*:D did I miss this thread before now?!?!? Great pics!! Looks like a blast.... and I know you had fun, because when my wife just walked by, I said this looks like fun.... her response? "Looks dangerous to me." That was the ultimate seal of approval!

    We went to Coal Creek three weeks ago while on our way to Gilbert MN. Great place. 72,000 acres and 250 miles of trails. Campground was okay too.
