Hey Peter,
What's shaking in your neck of the woods? Shocked

Hi Chris, not a lot! That quake was in a rather remote corner of the country and most of us didn't notice. Images coming in from news helicopters show a fair few rock slides in that neck of the woods ... at least four wheeling won't get the blame for that 'environmental' damage. It's strange though how people can get so passionate about others moving dirt and then just accept the millions of tons when it's 'natural'.

Regards

And I hope you didn't get your feet wet from the BIG??? wave!

Is all safe on the homefront?

Hello Doug, thanks for your concern. Nope, there was a minor disturbance in a few places along the coast but nothing to get excited about. You guys in the US beat us hands down when it comes to floods, tornados and other weather events! Ok, so there's more area to be affected too.
I hope that you've had a good summer of four wheeling.

Regards

GREAT to hear you're OK!

Of course it's been a GREAT 4-wheelin'summer and I'll be doing it again this weekend in Traverse City, MI with the Trolls 4X4 Club on their Fall Colors Tour trail ride!
