    It's a great subbie to hang around at, be it actively or in stealth mode ;)

    I often ask myself about that "fun" factor as to whether it's more fun for the participants or the Evil Genius freshly hydrated by brewskis! :eek:

    This is the exact site, imaged from the balcony on a rough day, where those surfers were filmed, Morro Bay High School in the foreground.

    Biggest seas I've seen here: "LATE SUNDAY EVENING THROUGH EARLY TUESDAY MORNING, BREAKERS BETWEEN 18 AND 25 FEET WILL BE COMMON ACROSS WEST AND NORTHWEST FACING BEACHES, WITH LOCAL SETS UP TO 30 FEET POSSIBLE DURING THIS TIME PERIOD"

    relatively dry at the moment, but I expect to be sodden for the foreseeable future.

    Clearly a similar sale of the UF wouldn't be as slow and casual as the HDFK this weekend, but it surely would make it a hell of a lot easier for folks to get one. I really don't think they'd sell out quite that quickly, especially if folks were limited to one each, but yeah, it certainly wouldn't stay open all weekend. Just one @$$hole's opinion, I know, and I'm not the one who makes the decisions. ;)

    Yeah, reminds me a lot of the Busse forum about 12-15 years ago. And the Friday sales (especially the Ironwood EDC's and these UF's recently) remind me of the old school Busse Ganzaaa sales. Drinkin' and F5in. F5, F5, F5, F5, F5, F5, F5, F5, F5, F5, F5, F5, F5, F5, F5, F5, F5, F5, F5, F5, F5, F5, F5, F5, F5.... :D

    Makes it easier to keep up with the dogs that way.

    Redneck side of me would love to go chase some coyotes hanging out the passenger side of that rig.

    From what I read, they are very unreliable.

    Badass mini snow cat!!! :cool: :thumbsup: Tilt bed?

    Some guys use very similar machines in the mountains here to groom some extensive snowmobile trails.

    Yep, it's a Polaris Ranger with the tilt bed. Has a pretty good amount of storage space in the bed under that topper. I'll slap tires back on it in the spring, but it seems like it's going to go anywhere I've got the guts to go with these tracks on. I knew I was going to track it, and if I could have ponied up the funds for a new machine I would have went with the Honda Pioneer 1000, since it has a transmission vs the Polaris being belt-driven. But the previous owner of this Polaris had a Dura-Clutch installed which utilizes clutch packs where the belt never disengages, so I'm hoping I'm good to go.
