Well my birthday is this weekend so definitely not this weekend. November? Depends on weather. Until spring its mostly depending on weather conditions.
Don't think anyone would want to drive too far in snow

I'd love to go more but it'd have to land on a weekend for me. Probably won't go further north than Saint Cloud til spring.

Nothing wrong .. This is a 1991 OHV Cologne engine. In 1991 there was no 87 octane, only 89-91-92 octane. I only use Shell Rotella T 15W40 Motor Oil. The Jet Performance Chip is not a fly by resistor gimmic .. It controls the air/fuel mixture and shifting ranges of transmission. This alone is a huge gas saver .. Auto 4 speed transmission and it will run in 4th gear with no lug at 45 mph. This engine also has ram air induction with K&N Box filter, performance cam & pistons. The only thing original in this engine is the block itself.

I average 15 - 16 in city <-- this is 75% of miles driven

If you have larger tires than stock on your truck .. Your odometer reading is lower miles than you have actually driven.

NO .. it means you are WAY OVER 90,000 miles! If you have tires that are 3-4 sizes larger your mileage could be as much as 10.7% higher than your odometer shows. It is easy for me to calibrate this by getting up to 60 MPH by my GPS <-- 99-100% accurate to 1 MPH and then watching speedometer needle's position on speed indicator panel. At 60 MPH GPS my speedometer is only registering 53 MPH.

Back when I was a member of another ranger forum, around feb 1st, we'd have Minnesota met on a frozen lake in Anoka county. the lake is only 20 feet deep at the deepest, and most of the lake actually freezes down to the bottom.
we'd go there and have a fun time on the snow covered lake.
one year, someone had made a speed skating oval, which we tried driving around. Funny.
we were very safe, and did not do anything dangerous and we kept our distance to avoid accidents.

Hmm, that makes more sense. Well, time to replace a crap ton of parts and postpone buying new aux lights.
