Default Weekend shenanigans (pic heavy)

So i took off friday after work to head north to my buddys house in Mesick for the weekend to do some riding. As usual, shenanigans ensued...

heres a couple from the drive there




once i arrived i helped him assemble an eliptical his wife bought and he showed us how to use it correctly


that was the most of the excitement friday. on to saturday, my buddy and i went out and messed around in the fields waiting for our other buddy to arrive so we could take our long ride. we were just messing around on a snowbank here





back at his house




our buddy arrived with his ranger


just a couple from our ride. we headed to maple city, about 120 mile round trip. we hauled ass, the trails were in good shape and the fields were great.




after our ride, we decided to head up to the bar for some drinks, we had a few and on the trip home my buddy came up with the great idea to tell his wife (our DD) to drive into the 10 foot ditch just before his driveway, so she did and this is what that looked like


so me and my buddy with the ranger hooked up to him with both of our trucks and pulled and pulled untill he finally came out after a million tugs with our trucks and a broken tie rod on the ranger. oh the fun





i pulled the ranger out of the road to the end of the driveway where it sat untill today. poor truck looked like this this morning.






the aftermath in the ditch and road



fixing the ranger..probably the fasted inner tie rod swap ive ever done, about 30 minutes





the ranger is fine, chevy drivers ego is bruised a little but all in all was a great weekend, just had to share with you guys

two random pics for the end

Nice pics, too bad about the tie rod. The end link looks toasted too.

Haha thats sweet, I love the new yamaha's... Idc what anyone says about them. I got the longer track on mine too (141) and i would never go back to a short track. I jus went on a 550 mile trip to copperharbor michigan on the sleds w/ 10 guys and one of the guys had a 06 Polaris Switchback and his sled actually started on fire... hahah it was crazy. Yamahas hold up though, i was impressed

Looks like a hell of a time. I wish we got enough snow around here to have a snowmobile.
