Well It's almost that time again.  I'm 43 years old this time. I think this will be the 3rd or 4th annual ?
Possible camping this time if We get enough interest. I know Mark wants to so that's one.
Elbe is a no joke trail system so this should make for a sloppy nasty mess of a good time.
As always I will do My best to share the adventures with all of My Marlin Forum friends.
Planning to keep this one from turning into a free for all. Limited invites with requests to only bring one friend.
I will post up some videos from our previous Elbe runs. I hope You can make it  :wave:

 
I am 1/5th of Perfect Fit
SqWADoosh [04:19 PM]: *sigh* I guess Chris is right and I just need to wait until I'm in a place where I have a tow rig and trailer before I get this caliber of truck
Mudder [08:28 PM]:   not try to be a jerk, but are you serious bestgen?
Prismo [06:11 PM]:   Done, time to relax or as Bestgen says....FREEDOM!
HogCanyonHopper [06:54 PM]:   I like my little rod. it gets the job done
H8PVMNT [03:30 PM]: I can go both ways.

Canceling trip to Elbe next weekend. Wife got a new Job. Her hours are opposite of mine, so last opportunity to spend time with her before she starts. Sorry

Engine comes out after the 23rd for Carson's truck. Then it's out of commission until engine swap is completed. (going to be a while) :down:

What?  I was prepared to not show up, but for it to not even be an option just hurts 🤣
