    I am all alone over here. all my friends grew up and I have nobody to play with. I hope to have my truck all back together by next spring, but I'll have nobody to ride with. hate wheeling alone. there's a club nearby but, alot of jeep guy's in it. " if you can keep up with us, you can come" I'd like to drive over them!! somebody please play with me.

    your right. I don't understand the jeep thing!

    I went to UB and dated couple of girls from up there, Brockport, Fairport, West Seneca, Allegany. We should Start getting together around oneonta or something. Do some wheeling in the mountains. I'm on long island. But I'll drive upstate, I'm always looking for an excuse to leave this hell hole.

    Hey 85blaze, I hear mine is looking pretty sweet. I'll be over tomorrow. Maybe we should head up and meet bablazer73 sometime? Blazerbob is near here too, maybe he'd be interested.

    BONDO WILL FIX ANYTHING!!!

    I live near Rochester but I have a friend in Binghamton who I wheel with a lot. He's in a jeep club but he's still cool, it's probably the one your talking about because he has to drive up to the mountains to meet them for rides. When I get my truck back from the body shop (this week, I hope) I'm going on a couple rides with them. It would be cool to get all the K5's together and show up the jeep guys.

    <font color=blue>If you find some good trails, me and Bill will come up there and ride them with you. Is there any that you know of in the Catskill area?

    I am in schenectady. 7 miles west of albany. I camp in lake luzerne. just outside of lake george. 60 miles north of home. I have state maps of trails in the adirondacks, but don't want to try them alone. my camp has alot of sites open and the trails aren't to far away. maybe we can plan an outing. I have been trying to find trails we can run in the catskills, but nothing yet. I have talked too blazerbob, and we were thinking of an east coast meet. but nothing has been decided yet. my truck won't be done till next year though. complete overhaul!

    your right. I don't understand the jeep thing!

    Yeah.. Why not.. Mine is getting better.. it goes slow and seems slower and slower when you have never done this type of body work before.. sshoot as of right now I think yours is farther than mine by a whole shot! But hey.. It will have some pride when its done.. one more patch to fit on mine.. and 2 more to weld on.. then somemore bondo work..

    Sounds good to me! I'm in Fairport NY (Rochester suburb). I never did get a chance to turn in the plates for my winter Blazer ('89 with 220K miles). I'd like to abuse it a little! I belong to a club in Henrietta that does a lot of wheeling-again, mostly jeeps. They go all over: Adarandacks?, PA, Southern tier, etc.... I'd go if a few other Blazers went. Check out www.mudnuts.org for past rides and scheduled events!

    hey Fairport guy do you know these two characters, Robert Stanton and Dean Van Harkin. Dean is about 6 foot 7 inches tall and he's got a Harley or at least he had one. They are both from Fairport.

    I'm finally going to get to a Mudnuts meeting in August. I've been trying for a while but something always seems to come up. Steve from Tufftruk is always bugging me about it. Do you go to the meetings? If you do I'll see you on the 7th. One of my friends is going to plan a ride when I get my Jimmy back, I'll see if we can get all the K5's in the area together for it.

    I'm up for getting together but my rearend just blew up and I don't have the money or time to fix it right now so my wife is driving it around in 4 wheel right now so that when the rear totally blows up she can still go. Got any spare rearends laying around Henry?

    I would go to Canfield but I've got to work Saturday night. I shoot fireworks for Young Explosives and I can't really get out of it because I'm the show leader. I've also got to get my new (to me) boat ready for my vacation a week later. Tufftruk did the lift on my truck in November. Steve says it's the K5 from hell because it took a LONG time. I'm glad they charge flat rate labor!
