Believe it or not, according to the weather person (PC) it's actually supposed to rain Wed. Maybe it'll rain enough to make mud.

4x4

Looked at some tires today, debating on pulling the 4in lift off my 80 fullsize bronco for the truck. I have 31x10.50x15s now, but looked at some nice 33x12.50x15's today at the store here on base (Tinker). But this weekend would be great, I heard about the chance of rain, hopefully it will be a nice soaker.

Silver Streak is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
Every time I've been at Tinker there has been a large muddy area out between the runways where the practive fighting fires. Since you're on base you might give that a try.

I was thinking the same thing. I didn't find any mud at my house, ground is just damp. I think we would have to have one heck of rain to make mud because I think the dry ground will soak it up too quick. I'm not weather man though, then again that's not saying much.

That's about 15 minutes from my house and you just had to pick a day where I have plans. Next time you go out there, maybe I can show. Have fun.
