Merry Christmas & Happy New Year from odd ball Mistusbishi

Postby DRaider90 » Sat Dec 24, 2016 2:38 pm

I was a regular part of organizing the Isuzuwharrie Uwharrie trips, and am proud to say I made some great friends on here. In 2013 when I switched jobs from 40hrs a week in a restaurant to 80hrs a week with Loomis it killed my time for 4 wheeling. The money was better allowing for me to pick up a Mustang, but that just hindered my plans to wheel further with another money pit. Switched jobs again to Metrotech in 2015 to about 50-60hrs a week, and I am finally at a dealership with an area Manager that I should be able to get time off to make it back out for the Uwharrie trips. So I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas & Happy New Year, and here is to hopefully reconnecting with old friends in 2017. Picture of the resurrected Raider trying to blend in at the Mercedes-Benz dealership I manage detailing at, and our other money pit that has a drinking problem.

Merry Christmas.

Eli, I hope you make one of the Uwharrie trips. Even if you have to drive the Mustang, I am sure you can catch a trail ride and join us at the range. As I have gotten older, the trips have become more hanging with good friends than rock crawling.
