    The funny thing is that I've been resurrecting this 100+ year old barn... then I cut a 3.5" hole in the middle of the wall.

    The neighbor likes it when I drive my truck in his yard. Whenever I do that I mow his lawn. So far I've mowed his lawn more than him.

    The barn is actually pretty clean today...

    Well, whaddaya have here? Could it be a motor and transmission sitting on the front half of a truck frame?

    It's official, I've used my winch more times to move junk around the yard and such than to recover vehicles. I don't know, I just found it entertaining. It was far easier than trying to get ahold of the club's cherry picker and haul it around.

    yeah, they make quite a difference. i don't mind hitting sharp [censored], pointed stumps, rubbing up against rocks, and the traction is quite a bit better. i placed second in my class in the mud bog with them... pushed the mud wall that formed in our class further than anyone else did... just a stocker IFS truck that ran after me did the proverbial "balls to the wall" run and bested me by like 4'. i wouldn't want his clean up though... he ended up with mud in the cowl.

    the death wobble and the flat spots are something to be desired though.

    i took my contacts out about 20 minutes ago... i'm now blind and tired instead of just tired.

    flat spots... like driving on square tires for about 5 minutes. if you get the flat spots timed just right they'll cause the death wobble too. life is grand with TSLs.

    I have never felt flat spots with my TSLs.

    At least you've got the right winch for dragging crap around the yard, that's about all mine is good for too.

    I'm a little bit hillbilly, a little bit redneck, and a whole lot hick.

    I was told I was "yooper" yesterday by a Jeep guy on a Jeep site. I have been living here for pretty much a solid four years... go back home about 3-4 weeks a year for various holidays... maybe I am becoming a yooper? It sure beats being whatever that backfield cow-raping corn-growing guy from Indiana is.

    A yooper is a person that lives in the Upper Peninsula (U.P. -- youpea) of Michigan.

    They're a different breed. Little bit dense, a whole lot self-involved, and very "good ole boy network"ish. Around here with have a Superfund site called "Torch Lake". There's a very high incidence of retardation of people from 15-40 which they attribute to the tailings (chet, stampsand, whatever--leftover mining waste) so when making fun of someone you often say "yooper from Torch Lake, eh?".

    Imagine a Wisconsinian bred with a Canadian. Complete with "Eh"s but with the nasal voice of a Wisconsinite.

    A Finnish yooper sounds just like the people in the movie "Fargo".
