    Now I'm kinda bummer I didn't try the rock bridge last time I was there.

    There are a good number in the group whose off road skill levels and confidence have grown remarkably over the last few years. That pretty much everyone is willing to spot each other is a huge help.
    I know I've learned a lot by helping to spot and looking at the lines others have taken. One of the advantages of usually being in the back of the group.

    So I was going to keep this under wraps until the next meet up. But I decided to 2JZ swap the Tacoma

    Downside of heated floors is you either have to keep it warm all winter or you need to heat that huge mass up before it gets warm in the garage. You need to work out there in Feb to make it worthwhile!

    They sure are nice tho.

    If I wasn't so buried in work until the end of the year I would totally plan a Sun-Tues trip before the snow flies. Alas duty and upcoming mods call.

    I just called and the message said trails close October 31. Apple valley has a winter run but not interested in doing those trails in the snow. Guess I can go find a mess in the Penokees to get my fill of winching before the snow flies

    True...IIRC, he said it cost him $85 to heat the slab. Not sure if that was per month or for the season. Even if it were per month, that's damned cheap compared to what it would cost for forced air or radiant heat in a building that sized.

    One last hurrah? I took back some PTO for the days my wife is off but that Friday-Monday is definitely doable for me. Back to work on Tuesday the 31st and then off again until Friday. It's fucked but everytime I take off it's twice as much work to catch up :annoyed:

    Well, at least it's a clean install. I can appreciate that. Not the best I've seen, though.

    I will have to look into this... There's an outside chance I could make it work.
