    Good morning everyone!

    Hope the holidays have treated everyone well and that everyone got a present for there tahoe!!

    Mine to myself was redoing my struts and getting all my shocks rebuilt, and worth it!

    Went out to Big Bend National Park for 6 days and drove all the roads which the park labels as "Primitive". It was an awesome time and lots of good views. 5th or 6th time out to big bend but first time taking all those roads and if your in Texas or near it and are looking for a good time Id recommend heading out there!

    There were a couple more hairy roads, even the Hot Springs road which is only 3 miles was a little tight with 15-25ft drops on the side, but nothing too bad!

    I definitely could not maneuver it on the trails in New Hampshire, my Suzuki samurai barely use to fit on some of those!

    I saw Big Bend and thought you were going to talk about a place my Navy buddies and me went to for the drag boat races years ago. Big Bend River on the AZ and CA border. We set up our own stereo system and downed beer after beer and climbed the cliffs to look down on the races. Fun fun fun...........
