Flat trackin

Last Sunday we went to watch Trent and Malcolm make their maiden ride as Flat Tracker's.The track needed a little more love as it had some rut's in the corners that would make a moto-crosser cringe. But they both fought threw it and made for one of the best races of the day. I got to hand it to them for going out an trying something different. I look to see both of them in the winners circle soon. Below is the video of the race. Trent in the Green shirt and Malcolm in the Red shirt. Good job boys. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t_kU3AItf-o&feature=youtu.be

Since things are slow at work I decided to take the week off and fish. I haven't had the boat out all year so I thought this would be a good time to get out on the lake and enjoy myself. Me and Linda hit the water about Seven Monday morning looking to fill the frig with some big cats. After a couple of hours of getting her hook out of the bushes and rocks I noticed that we were taking on water. Nothing big I just had to turn on the bilge pump for a couple of seconds and we were good. When we left the lake I didn't drain the water from the boat so that I could see where the leak was. When I got home I backed the boat in the garage and sure enough the hull was leaking from and old repair that was done by the previous owner. So I took the motor off and emptied the boat and with the help of Barry,Cody,Keith,Brent and me we managed to get it up on its side so that the repair could be preformed. Kind of a redneck setup , but it worked.
Yes this 2x12 is all that's holding the boat up. Pretty cool huh.
When I got er done Cody and I were able to let it back down in it's resting place on the trailer and put it back together and ready for the rest of the week. Ahoy Mates.

Fun in Paris

Here is a couple of video's from a fun day at Charlie's house. I want to thank Charlie and Janie for a great time and more food than I've ate in years. I guess the campfire music was great , but I kinda fell asleep in my lawn chair and missed it. The first video is what you would see and the second is what I see.

I hope to put more on board video's on here later. video

ITSA golf

Sunday mite have been the first ITSA golf outing. PeeWee,Dustin,Barry and myself went to McCabe golf course for a little fun. Now PeeWee had not played for about 10 years. Dustin is fairly new to the game. Barry has only played 2 or 3 times this year and I just suck at golf. Ok first off how dumb are golfers or how dumb do golf cart manufacturers think we are.

Here is a picture of the pedals in the cart. DAAHH. Then I seen this sign that someone tried to mess with.

After reading this sign I now know why its important to label the foot pedals, but I wonder if these people can read if they cant spell? Here is a shot of each of us on the tee box.




A good time was had by all and I hope we can go again soon or have a ITSA tournament with a few more members. Go here for a short video of the day.

ITSA at TTC

This is a video of a hill climb at the Trials Training Center for the I.T.S.A. North American championship rounds 3 and 4. After the first loop it came a little shower which made for some interesting traction. Notice when Barry's back tire hits a wet tree root how his line is changed. Then Mennonite Mike comes right in behind him and watch the line he uses to tackle the hill. Lesson learned.

Bird in a tree

When we was at Reelfoot lake we were lucky enough to see this bird catch a fish and fly right over our boat and land in its nest atop this tree.
I'm not sure of the species, but it was not a Bald Eagle. A truly beautiful sight. Note that the nest takes up the whole top of the tree.
