Holy crap that was! That is too funny! That was a long day. I went to petterborough and then sandown. Like 6 + hours driving getting truck parts from Craigslist.

Last year was rough. I got 700+ miles but 1/3 of those were from one ride. I got an 05 skidoo GTX 500ss.

New member from Berlin

Shawn Bryan from Berlin, Central Vermont. Not quite legal yet but I have an F350 Lariat 6.7 CCLB with all the bells and whistles ordered and due in next month. It will be ruby red metallic which I understand is the fastest color!

Had Fords PUs before but not for a while. My old ride is a 2005 Toyota 4Runner. Wife's last ride was a 2003 Tundra. First time ever I have ordered exactly what I want so I'm looking forward to the new truck arriving. As far as what we'll use it for, hauling hay, a tractor, kayaks, etc. Most anything - we've missed having a truck for all the chores you seem to have in an old farmhouse.

Three kids, all grown up and we're both retired. Maybe someday we'll have a 5th wheen behind this truck and head south for January-March.

Guess that's enough. Look forward to the discussions.

Hey everyone, I'm Chris, I live in the NEK, Danville to be specific. I recently graduated from college, went to Paul Smiths in the adirondaks, studied forestry. I have a temporary job in Northern NH, Pittsburg, where I'll be cruising timber all summer. Had to get a 4WD for this job, and was considering a new F150, because our family has always owned ford pickups. Almost bit the bullet on a 2011 reg. cab XL V6, was a real good price with some warranty remaining, but insurance for my age group is a killer. So, I got a 1976 F250 Highboy instead and just put minimum coverage on it. It's got a 390, 4 speed manual, divorced transfer case, 36" humvee tires and manual steering talk about being a bear to steer. But, it's a tough old truck, and the price was right. And I got to keep my car I had for running back and forth to college, so I don't have to feed the 390 all the time.
My dad has a 2003 super cab F250 5.4 as well. I want to hook chains and see which one would outpull the other, but I don't think he'd go for it

Hello Chris. I'm Jim the chapter leader. I live in Orange. Snowmobile quite often up there. Got any pictures of your truck sounds sweet.

The snowmobiling is pretty good up here. I haven't ridden in the past few years because I've been out of state at college and money's been tight to ride maybe one or two weekends a season. Hopefully I'll get my SRX 700 back on the trails this winter though. Pray for snow!

Here is some pics of the beast

I'm a skidoo loyalists, 2009 GTX 500ss. I probably average 1200-1500 miles a year.

That is a nice truck. Should be fun in the mud up there.

I did 2000 miles the last winter I rode. The yamaha is wicked fast, and corners like it's on rails but I'd like to upgrade to a nicer riding sled. Thinking a skidoo REV style. My girlfriends family has all skidoos, rode one of their REV's and I liked it. Doesn't have the power my 700 triple does, but it's not often I need to go 120MPH down the railroad bed

I just got a set of matching tires for that truck, with alot better tread. Getting hard to find 16.5" tires, might have to convert it to 16" 8 lug eventually.

My back loves the rev style. I put 10000+ on my 05 GTX 500ss. I like tighter wooded trails.

16.5 is an odd ball size. Good score on the tires
