Few things are funnier than some moron trying to use legalese. Hereon? What does that mean? Warrantee? I think he meant "warranty".

And I like the Tread Lightly! part. He's such a classy guy.

Before Northwest Parts and before Rover Racks, Andy Nix was the consummate fourwheeler:

You see, this way I drill two less holes into my cargo door to mount my rear ladder:

Ebony and Ivory:




When you hit the trail, be sure to wear fatigues to show that you're an Elite Team Fighter.

Every rule, however, has an exception. When you're scamming on a white woman, clean up your act with some white pants:




Even if you plan to hit the mud:




Use the wrong hand signal for "stop" while you're at it.

Get her pumped up about what a good job she did behind the wheel:




Then try to get her in bed.

Rube Goldberg meets recovery:




I guess it would have been too simple just to use the clevis pin inside the tow hitch like this:

Have you guys ever seen a broken rear lower shock mount? Neither have I.

But let's replace the rear lower shock mount anyway with some sleigh ride action:




The shock isn't longer with this mount installed and it's more vulnerable than it would have been had it been mounted to the factory shock mount, but tis the season so let's do it.

Uh oh:




Well, that's just a fluke. A one in a million.

Uh oh:

I thought they were having an Iron Chef, not a picnic.

Burgers? Who the fuck cooks burgers for a "competition"? I've got to watch this again and make sure it was not Kevin "Dance With Tress" Willey. I make burgers at home when I don't feel like cooking. Cooking burgers is like cooking hot dogs. You do it because you're too lazy to put much effort into it.

And what's up with all the Rovers North and Atlantic British gift certificates? I thought Steve Young, Muddy Oval, and D.A.P. were the big-dogs of this event. Why isn't Steve Young, Muddy Oval, or D.A.P. mentioned in any of the Top 5 finishers of this elite competition? And since when is 5th place worthy of a prize, anyway? Is this fucking t-ball or something? Does everyone get a trophy just because you showed up?

I can't wait to see the expedition video.

Holy shit.


That is the lamest fucking wannabe bullshit I have seen in this whole thread.

It's one thing to blatantly copy someone else.
It's another thing entirely to create such a pathetic facsimile.

Who the fuck are they kidding?

That segment of Dances with Cheese struggling with the grill is funnier than hell.

Not to mention that SY seems to have some fascination with looking like a Land Rover Dealership Guide.

Did the Northern Maine Expedition video every get completed and posted?

Hmmm, where would be the ideal venue for us to copy Iron Chef? Yeah, a motel:



Bigger is better, so let's scrounge around and whore ourselves out to get some junker prizes from as many vendors as we can:




How do we add that special touch? You know, the one that says this event is a great one? How do we top Iron Chef? Oh I know:

The different ways to pronounce gnocchi were interesting.

The first guy seemed to pronounce it "in-yoh-ky".

The second guy seemed to pronounce it "e-no-ky".

The third guy seemed to pronounce it "ga-na-ky".

Maybe that's why the gnocchi didn't win. Nobody there could pronounce it.

Someone clearly hasn't had the joy of learning UCC Section 2-207.
