    I was wishing we had some snow so we could go on a snow run and it jogged my memory that my first run with HDC was 13 years ago. Decided I needed to look at some photos. Here you go: DSC01440.JPG DSC01441.JPG DSC01444.JPG DSC01447.JPG

    So, it looks like we did at least 3 snow runs in 2005. By picture deduction, this was Super Bowl Sunday. I was trying to figure out who had the second red 40. Question answered.

    I do not still have that 60. I sold it to help pay for my 100 9 years ago. I wish I did because I bet I could sell it for more than I could sell my 100 now. I keep seeing much uglier 60's being advertised for 5 figures. I struggled for months to finally get $3,700 for it back in 2008. It had a salvage title and 270K miles. But it also had zero rust, a really good repaint, stock suspension and passed emissions (usually) with completely stock motor. Compression numbers were good. Steering knuckles had been rebuilt/resealed. Oh, and the interior was 8/10 and the dash had zero cracks in it.

    Has anyone heard from Jack in ages? I think we lost him when we switched from Yahoo!Groups to IH8MUD.

    Marc - thanks for all the pictures and the trip down memory lane. It's always shocking to me how quickly these kids grow up, when the rest of us never seem to get any older!?! It just happens so gradually with us geezers, but it's much more dramatic with the kids.

    It's also interesting to see how the line-up of trucks has changed over the last 13 years. Lots more 40's back in the day. Mine may have been the only 80 on the run that day, and now we've got 100's and 200's out there on the trail, while the 40's and 60's are fading away. Of course, that one white solid axle 4Runner keeps coming back year after year...

    I must admit, I love my insulated green coveralls for snow runs (and changing the oil in the wintertime). I never knew they were supposed to get washed?!?
