:hahaha: I tried explaining that to my wife, she doesn't understand it either...  I have had teh truck in a perpetual rebuild for the last 5 years..  it's getting to the fun part of the build where all the old booty is gone and it's all fresh ready to get wailed upon. :gap:  I guess the saving grace is the wheeling trips have all been 3-5 day trips...  :greengrin:

I used to make 4 "wheeling trips" each year then wheel 2 weekends a month at home, but my trips are narrowing down. Last year was 3 and I only wheeled 1 1/2 weekends out of a month. This year is starting out even worse, and I prolly wont be making but maybe 2 trips this year, and only wheeling 1 weekend out of a month, but I hate to speculate how its gonna be this early in the year. The good news is I have a shop now, and another project.

My buddies and I used to go 1-2 time a week in during the snow season, w/usually once a month camping trips, and in 1-2 camping/wheeling trips during the rock season.  As we got older and real life took control, those trips dwindled to once a month, than maybe 6 times a year, and now about 3 times a yr, and some yrs none, for me anyways.  Hell it has been almost 9 months since the hubs were locked on either of my 4x4's for any type of wheeling.  

It is funny, we went a lot more when we had stock/slightly modified rigs, and now that we have built rigs we hardly go at all.

I live in a bad area for wheeling(South Louisiana). Plenty of mudding if you are into that though.

I try to go to atleast one big ride a year with my club, there is a little place about 3 hours from here thats pretty cool but even that I can only go every so often (1-2 times a year) due to schedualling conflicts with the club.

Just got alot of work done on my truck and looking forward to trying it out this weekend if the weather holds.
There is a fine line between clever and stupid, I just wish I knew when I crossed it.
