I agree! And I'm in stillwater for school - junior mechanical engineering - if you've ever been to stillwater, the building with the green roof is old central and the one to the left is the conoco phillips center.

I am from OKC/Edmond though. I technically live in OKC, but my neighbors across the street are in Edmond. I live out east of I-35. What about you?

I'm glad you put together a build thread, now I know to look for a white built up x at the amarillo meet. I like what you've done with it though.

It was time I put something together. It was pretty stock until the last weekend or so.. I didn't think it was hardly worthy of a build page. And thank you, I think it's turning out pretty well too. You need to put together a build page!

I've got one, I think I updated it recently with the sliders. I don't keep up with it like I do my build on Xterra Nation.

I live in Moore. Right off 134th and Western. I recognize the area now that you mention. I once got a Transporting Open Container ticket around there when I was 20 and up there with buddies.

I didn't see your first post until today, it was nice meeting you too! Thanks for the picture, I still need to go through and upload some from the trip. I'm glad we made it through Strike Ravine in one piece..

Strike Ravine was fun, Olaf made the difference. Just realized we didn't see you on Hell's Revenge on thursday - I remember Marcin calling your name while going thru the list. Friday Jeff and I bailed out on 7 Mile Rim, we spent a long day in Canyonlands, it was awesome (I think you and your dad biked there one day).

I did bail to do the 7 mile rim on Thursday. I talked to Marcin earlier in the week and he said that if I didn't have a locker and/or skids I wouldn't be able to do Hells Revenge, which was a bummer because I really wanted to do it. I called him about 30 min before we were supposed to meet and left him a message, guess he didn't get it in time. I hope I didn't hold anyone up!

And yeah the mountain biking was incredible. We did the Slick Rock bike trail which starts up near Fins n Things.

Some bumper progress pictures. It was a pretty easy install with just the help of my room mate.
Taking off the bumper,
There is TONS of room down there! We could both sit and work on taking out the bolts at the same time.

My big kid's LEGO kit:

Fabbed up a little mount to hold the CB radio while I was at it..
it fits really well actually.

Here's what she looks like all put together:
