Things I learned at Winterfest '06

1) In Indiana in early march it can be 65 on Wednesday and snowing and freezing rain on Sunday
2) People in the MW sure do know how to make a fire
3) D30 ring gears like to break in pairs
4) If you break enough times at WF you inherit Frankenspare
5) If you haul Frankenspare home on a flatbed untethered it will still be where you put it when you left for home
5a) To bad it didn't fall off, it didn't have my name on it
6) If you bring a guest and get him drunk enough he will trade a HD track bar won at the raffle for a couple of u-joints
7) One tons parents have an awesome tow rig!
8) Sunday morning is a great time to check it out, ummmm the waffles were great
9) No matter what you bring for spare parts you will break something you don't have
10) If you bring enough stuff you'll have spare parts for others
11) One Ton's parents are awesome nice, the apple fell from the tree and rolled down the hill
12) Orange can be run in RWD, though you have to watch everyone play in the fun stuff
13) If you need a part at WF forget about getting one that day
14) Hay may be for horses but it sure does burn hot
15) A 4cyl Cherokee with a carb and no muffler sounds like 50 chicks farting
16) WF turned out great this year!

That's all for now,

17) Driving behind the Jeep in #15 will make you want to throw up a little because it smells like it too
18) My jeep is even tougher than I already thought it was
19) The midwest is the best, all you guys were great
20) Plan further ahead so I can stay for sat nights campfire next year
21) Get out and wheel more just because I can, and it's fun
22) My list of things to buy will grow every time I go on the trail or talk to you guys.

30) 15 psi still just does not offer enough traction.

31) High Lift Jack handles do not rattle when used to re-enforce a tie rod.

32) Sean Rose can be sitting right next to me and I'll not know it.

33) I can be an asshole at 2am.
