    Nice looking setup you've got there. That has to go into the record books as one of the lowest temps a New River 4 season has gone down to. I'm sure Paul at AHE would be proud of his offspring ��

    You have a way for words. On Monday morning, my sense of warm afterglow was overshadowed by the feeling of being run over by a large truck :) . It was still an epic trip. Too bad it's a little to...

    Sanity is over rated, but I'll be thinking the same thing while I pack, repack, and try to get over the tendency of tossing things in "just in case". I'm sure between the group, all situations...

    Should be about right for us hangers from the forum. Turkey has an extra 2 buddies, plus maybe 2 more that are coming. Could have 10-12 total. CNC and Twistin are in for a cold night...
