Not that I know from experience but you should screw the van seats down to a 2x6 running from front to back on each side so that when you set down a little too fast they don't flip over and throw you over your head.

Good Luck on your turn. That deer your boy shot is an awesome first deer. The first one I shot, my dad picked it up by one ear and drug it to the truck.

Got hit by lightening with the storms last weekend. PEC was out Monday replacing the transformer feeding the house and north well. No water gaps hung open, so I have been very fortunate. Blessed to have the place!

Planning on heading out next weekend. Hope the forecast holds.

Tim that is some really beautiful country that way down 83... Took the long way home last month and enjoyed the scenery into Menard... Hoping for some rain in the area

You have done a great job with that place. It looked like a dump when you bought it, and those latest pictures are pure serene. You my friend have really made a good investment.

You should have a real estate agent in the area ballpark it's value for you. Just for fun.
