    Not much of a ride....

    Got to the trails and SOMEONE, and I'm not naming names decided to take their quad through a nice mud trough.

    Well, there's a moment when you hit the lip of the puddle and the drop off is a LOT steeper than one expects it to be and you JUST KNOW that things are not going to go well.


    Yeah, I talked to the guy who did that and he told me ALL about that feeling.


    Managed to get it winched out, but the engine was wet and the battery was dead, so it was tow it home, jump start it, run it around the yard a couple times to try to dry it out.

    Still sitting, idling, just to be sure...

    NOw you can get the mtn bikes out and get some of that 'high intensity cardiovascular' exercise that we're supposed to get 3X a week to keep our health up......and set a FINE example to the boys about taking personal responsibility for ones own health........

    Working up to that, Doug.

    Soft, flabby muscles aren't up to serious trail riding.

    Tried it, failed pretty miserably, working on flatter terrain or now.

    'Afternoon Bret and everyone. Yesterday was a blast. Took a new shooter out to check out the facilities, also narrowed down the scope problems to either shooter error or the cap getting hit by ejected casings (modified the ejector port to go sideways-forwards, but I've seen one going straight up) or shooter error. When shooting carefully, off a sandbag, I was getting reasonable 4-5MOA groups (perfectly fine for that gun, even ahead of the curve by a tiny bit). Met a couple of guys there and we did a bit of gun-swapping. They had a blast with the el-cheapo red dot I mounted on the SKS and also with the accutrigger on my Mk II G and one of them brought his XCR in .308 - sexxxxay

    I've had great experience with Sea Foam in seasonal engines where the carbs may or may not need a cleaning. If they're a bit dubious, I just gave them the shock treatment.

    1) Run the tank almost dry, pour half a bottle in there
    2) Run the engine until the white smoke starts coming out and then vary the rpm's from idle to redline for about 5min
    3) Leave overnight
    4) In the AM, pour the rest of the bottle and fill up with gas, run through the entire tank, again, varrying the RPM's (easy to do on motorcycles/atv's, just go on a ride lol)
    5) Fill up normally and there should be a major improvement in how the engine runs

    In order to avoid that, I stabilize my fuel with Sea Foam in the off-season, and run about 1/3 bottle every couple of months.

    Ya I'd say, it's only 90 for parts so not to bad, just need to fix it before all of the snow melts, the first real ride of the year is is during the melt.

    We haven't had enough snow to say that we're having a "melt"

    It's pretty soggy in places on our trails, though.

    We still have 2 feet or so, maybe In a week or so can actually ride a trail. Some of the hard pack spots you can ride already because you can stay up on the top but veer inches off the trail and your up to your knees.

    I used to ride but race sleds are expensive to run and maintain, I can't stand trail riding either, it's got to be In the air or up a steep hill.
