Might as well say hello

Hello,

Been a member for a few years but finally have a nice reason to participate in all the fun.





Just got her this week.

My last truck was a full size diesel. It was badly hurt in the hail storm a few months ago so instead of fixing it I sold it and bought a Taco.

Once i get the finances in line (Buying a house this week also) than i will start on some mods.

Also, I'm big into snowmobiling and just started dirtbiking so if anybody wants to ride let me know

thanks chris

Purdy, why did you want the sport TRD? Any specific reason? I like the color matched bumpers. I dislike the no e-locker on the sport. Very nice truck!

Admitting you have a problem is the first step

So true, so true! WELCOME Btw...

I love that gunmetal grey.

And yes I love to snowmachine it, but haven't done it in years. You got 1 or 2 sleds... cuz I have a killer cabin up hall valley (off 285 near kenosha pass) that in the winter you can only get to on a snow machine, or snowshoes/ski's....







Sorry this photo cracks me up. My sister is such a dork.

Sweet cabin, Molly. My ex's dad had a cabin outside of Ned similar to that (on land with a fucking real, live gold mine). I miss the cabin...not the ex.

Welcome, Chris. I'm new here, too.

This cabin is actually on Forest Service land. When my brother found it about 25 years ago (On his snow machine while trapping was in vogue) He sort of adopted it. Our whole family restores it by schlepping a bunch of wood up and lexan to redo the roof with sky-lights. We put in the 55 gallon drum stove (took out the old POS little stove) and made some natural wood cabinets for canned goods. A bear would always break through the heavy plastic and chicken wire every spring so we had to constantly repair those. Then we found out the cabin was on a mining claim that had back taxes. So we paid those and legally owned it for about 6 years. But we never locked it because we knew the people who already had stumbled across it would just break in. We left a journal there that is still there to this day (I think it is on a second book). The big problem was the more that people stumbled across this cabin the more they told their friends. Pretty soon we would go up and people would already be there. We had to explain that I was the "Molly" in the log Book and the "Steve" was my brother who found it... The other thing we did is every fall we would go up and cut a bunch of wood for the winter. We would always ask vistors to contribute. They never did. Then we would go int he winter and the wood would be all gone and the Maul we left there would be stolen... Blah Blah Blah.

At any rate with all the traffic, and then the land was surveyed and we found out the mining claim was 100 feet off from the cabin (GPS got better) we gave up the claim and basically stopped going to it, for about 7 years. Then 3 years ago I went back up with my sister and Troy. It was still in decent shape and the forest service was allowing it to be used (There was now a plaquard that showed it was on forest service property with an acknowlegment of thanks to the mysterious family that fixed it up) Some stuff was shitty, people carving their names in the wood and writing 420 everywhere, lack of fire wood but other than that it's cool.

(Our solution to the wood problem when you can drive there)


Winter is the best time to go now because it is hard to reach. You have to snowshoe or ski at least 6 miles with a 3,000 foot elevation gain. I'm just not up for that any more. We used to have a snow machine back in the day and that was how we got there, but don't have one anymore....

So there is the Story of the Houck Cabin!

Oh and don't forget this pic of the crazy axe murderer that is our CoTTORA Prez (Troy aka RedrunnerTC)
