Re: Jeep Buggy at Broward Poker Run

I was hoping they'd weigh it with the portable scales weighing front and rear separately, even though I doubt the accuracy of them but you'll have an idea of balance. Those scales that get tossed on the ground sometimes during weighing probably never been calibrated. I weighed in at 4600lbs with a 5...

Re: Iconic airboats won’t be part of Everglades culture for

NPS has made offers to buyout them out . As soon as one sells it'll cascade from there. We all cut our teeth in this , aged in it , gotten tired , retire and die off. But an entity with ever rotating crop of new blood continues forward no matter what. I hope the next generation despises these scum b...

Re: Iconic airboats won’t be part of Everglades culture for

Some sad shit .
This has been coming for some time, when the ENP expansion act was done the NPS bought a bunch of nails for our coffins and proceeded to drive one in at a time.
Relentless , long term goal / agenda driven MF'rs.

If you mentioned the idea of a horse drawn wagon for use in the cypress 20 years ago , you would be called crazy.
