New Toy?

Talk about anything that floats your boat (no pun intended). This is general talk about anything not related to boating/fishing.

Jim, old friend...


I think you have been in far too many expressway traffic jams. It's time for some deep breaths, some relaxation exercises, and perhaps

a REALLY substantial prescription for tranquil thinking.


(It's really kind of neat, but in the Mid-west, we'd use to for snow travel, no matter how high, nor how many cars were underneath the snow)


deep slow breaths..ok?

Uhhhh, if you get it, me thinks in the divorce settlement that your wife would get that truck toy and you'd be stuck with your smoker grill ... :shock:

I saw one for sale locally, they're only $130,999 so why not grab one for the winter!

This one is 130K, meaning it's 129K more than I want to pay. :LOL2:

If I saw that and pulled over, I can hear Mrs Ldubs saying "don't even think about it". :D

That's exactly what my wife said, but she was at least willing to take the picture. :LOL2:

and, Canada makes a sort-of civilian version.


I don't want one, but it would sure be fun to play with one for a week or so. :)

I was born not far from there. A lot of that area (North-central MN) is tamarack swamps. Can't get around with anything out there until it freezes. Those vehicles are pretty handy for that terrain.

I'd be scared to death to go up or down a steep hill with it, esp. on rocky or uneven ground. Looks to me like it would endo real easy.

I think someone near me has one.
I have seen tracks in some deep snow that could only be made by tires like those.
This was a few years ago.

It’s gone! Someone actually bought it. I would like to at least take a ride in one.
