Lafayette used to have the highest number of members in IN, somehow that herd thinned out and now it seems to be down here near the Evansville area.

Either way, good to have you aboard! Welcome! There are some really great guys up in/around your area, just don't let the one we call 'Bear' trick you into thinking he's a wheeler!

If you want to be included on the website (www.inttora.org) PM me (or post) your info and I'll get it added for ya'.

greetings and welcome to the chapter. Hopefully we can meet up on the trails sometime. If you need anything don't hesitate to let us know. We have a pretty good core of people.

Oh and don't always listen to Fuod, he thinks because he was at the first meeting he has some kind of status or something. Actually he knows more about "web wheeling" than most of us around here!

Yea! I am laughing my ass off also at how ridiculous Joe is also!

Oh! you're laughing at me no biggy, I'm used to having people laugh at me one reason I am good to have around.

I'm actually hoping once I get the chance to work on my truck (weather) I might have progress with my truck. at least I still have air in the tires.

I'll rent your rig for a $1, no gurantee what condition I return it in though.
