I Love My Rhino. I Added 28" Xtr Tires. They Are Amazing All Around Tires. I Also Added Lights On The Front And In The Back, A Reciever Mounted Winch That Will Plug In Front Or Back And I Had To Use It Several Times On Both Ends. 35oo# Works Great. That Pic Is Of My Wife. She Drove It Less Than 100' In The Tn River Bottoms And Stuck It Worse Than I Ever Did. Service Here Is Very Bad On Yamahas. Something Went Wrong On The Fan Housing Under Passenger Seat And Yamaha Kept My Rhino For Over 2 Months. If My Tractor Or Lawn Mowers Stayed In The Shop For 2 Months I Would Be Out Of Business.

That Pic Was Close To The Tn River. We Also Go To Oak Ridge Tn To Ride In The Spring Or Fall Jamborees. They Have 72000 Acres To Ride On In The Mountains. It Cost About $20 A Day And People Come From All Over The Country.

Looks good Todd, good year end project. I still to this day wonder what people do with houses that size. We just started another decent size one, three tiers, pond, waterfall, fencing, and lighting. We'll be doing well if we have it done by the end of the first week in January. Usually we wrap up before Christmas but not this year. I usually don't open up projects that size this time of year but my guys said they could do it. Its on the south side of the house so the sun helps us.

See you Friday, drive safely.

Nice project...We have been so busy, I really havent had a chance to get on much and I just about missed all of this thread.....That pool needs more appeal around it. But anyway, I love my t190 as well. It has been soooooo useful over the last few weeks. On our neighborhood development project, we have been able to get so much further ahead of schedule. Without the t190, dont think we would have been as productive. We have closed the door on 2007, and I refuse to take anymore work this year unless its $$$$$ involved. The weather here had been so nice, and we have been able to work without any problems due to the weather. Well yesterday and today we finally got a really good freeze, but we will be back in the 60's later this week. Our last day of the year will be on Saturday, and we wont get started again until Jan. 14th. We plan on spending Saturday cleaning all equipment, repairing what needs to be repaired, cleaning up, organizing, etc. My wife actually hired a professional organizer, and she has been amazing. We have reduced clutter, and created more space. But I am so ready for vacation. I am headed to the warm and sun of Flawda for a few weeks. Hey Todd, I got tix to the Va. Tech Game in Miami, and will also be going to the Gator bowl to watch my Hoos.

Thanks Jarod. I've got a few projects I'm cooking up for next season. While I'm closed for January I'm going to work hard on networking and getting more work lined up. See you soon.

----------------------------------------

Go'n to the game are you? Good luck with the Hoos.....I pull for them so long as they aren't play'n VT. I'm going to the VT game in Miami too.......wouldn't happen to like food would you? PM me.
