tug-o-war

These are some pictures from those nice days we had earlier this week. Some of the local four-wheelers' members playing.

In the background that thing on the right is the County Courthouse.

Warning: dialup will take forever for these to load.

<font color=green>Ouch! Now that's abuse! From the strip on the ground it looks like the chevy is losing... Maybe if he had an L/S in the front, can't tell if there's one in the rear. I think my technique would be 4 low and nice and smooth so as not to let it break traction. Let the other guy start spinning then just drag him backwards.

Yeah, the FoMoCo is locked front and rear if I remember correctly, plus it had a lot of junk in the bed for weight. I don't know anything about the Chevy, I've never seen it before.

Re: tug-o-war

Sometimes.

When the students for the two colleges leave about 2/5ths of the population between the two "cities" will disappear. I stay for the summer and the tourists come and you finally get to see girls here.

The part that sucks is that chances are you will see someone again if you do something stupid. I fishtailed my truck all the way up a hill (wet/sandy asphalt) for five blocks and I had a van follow me for several miles until I lost them on some gravel roads.

Re: tug-o-war

bored college kids on a 90 degree day? that was a record high that day and the average for the month of april is 40 degrees.

i think the more important question is why would they do it in front of the courthouse with the police station within earshot of the smoking tires.
