    Beautiful. I'm at 98K myself and still going strong. I think she's just getting broken in! Looks like a nice lake!

    Every man needs a skidder:D. When are you going to mod out the skidder??

    Looks good for 100k. Good job.

    That is the ultimate off-road vehicle. Is that mud or sand that the skidder is hub-deep in?? So the skidder is your company vehicle and the Taco is your personal vehicle???

    its quicksand... yeah i didnt think it was real either... i looked back and saw ripples going out from my tires... like a boat wake and then bam... fell thru and the ground started swallowing the skidder. The ground was like jello and i didnt leave a single track... strange. yeah, the skidder is my work vehicle and the Yota is my daily driver... sometime i have to take it to the woods on logging road and its never gotten stuck. Gotta love the LSD.

    Quicksand:eek:!! Very scary!! I have been stuck in sand before, and I understand you seeing the ripple waves as you got mired. NOTHING like that though... At least you had the "tool" to get out!!!
