I'll start this.

My name is Thomas I'm 40 years old and divorced I'm disabled because of an accident I had where I stretched every ligament tendon and muscle in my left knee I've had 2 massive heart attacks that should have killed me but luckily I survived. I used to enjoy working on anything Automotive, I'm a computer and ATV enthusiast but because of everything wrong I'm not able to do as much as I would like to. I also enjoy playing games on my Xbox360. I live in West Central Illinois but I am originally from Shreveport Louisiana. I love to fish and hunt as well as spending time with my family and living a nice simple country life. That is all I can think of at this time, if I can think of anything else I will edit this post.

THomas, Thanks..WOW that sure sounds like a mean geter done machine you will have. I have seen a few down your way on Craigslist setup just as you described. Me and my wife spent our Honeymoon in Shreveport pretty cool place..She use to live in the Piney woods of Texas till I Snatched her up wahooo!!
Yea I'm hoping to keep my new 4x4 mostly stock Due to mtn riding..Same size tires but more aggressives better looking rims of course. Get some skidz for the belly and a 2500lbs winch and maybe bumpers..Not planning on doing the Mud Bogging altough I see how it would be a blast with the correct rig.. I have a friend Down east His wife rides a 660 Grizz 2" lift with 28 inchers she gets it done for sure..rides at busco Beach..I enjoy watching the swampers But really like Trail riding..

I'm 49,married for 25yrs with two girls (17 & 12) and live in a small mountainous town "we say grace and we say mam".
We camp as a family almost every other week-end from early spring til bow season.

I'm an avid mtn biker and backpacker and have been hunting and fishing all my life.I like to hunt mushrooms in the spring also.

I never did drugs but drank a lot of whiskey in my younger years,only drink wine occasionally now.

Favorite group of all time is Alabama but my kids now have me listening to stuff like the Black eyed peas and Rihanna.......not bad.:)

Atv's is my latest hobby and have miles of trails behind the house.I'm on my 700 KQ almost every day either working or playing.My oldest daughter has a Yamaha 250 and we ride together a lot.
Looking to add Itp wheels on my KQ,probably SS212's.

Does seem like there is no respect anymore,When i grew up respect was easy to come by,if not a couple slap downs and you would find respect in a hurry.

Posting pics?

I got pics but need to learn how to post them,not real computer savvy....yet.
Best way is to find a host like photobucket.com its free. load them to computer the go to photobucket and once you sign up download them to resize them then hit the link copy and paste img..once you do it a time or to you will be a pro. I need to get some up myself on here..I'm off vacating this week and lusting over all the king quads on here and other places..Give me or others a shout we would be glad to help. ..Burr its cold outside..

Hi, my name is Al, and i live in a small town called Iroquois Falls. It's located way North in Canada. I am happily married to my wife who i met on a chat place called ICQ. We've been married for a little over 4 years now, but have been together for a little over 8 years. In the year 1989, i was diagnosed with a condition called cardiomyopathy. That is a condition that affects the heart muscle. After being diagnosed with this condition, roughly 3 months later i received the ultimate gift. A heart transplant..!!

Now 32, life is going well for me. Only down side is, i am unable to have any kids. Doctors figure it's from all the medication that i take. I take over (30) pills a day. My main pill weakens my immune system somewhat, and the others mostly control heart rhythm ect. So life there for me has it's up and downs.

As for the active part of my life, i love riding the trails on my 2000 KQ 300 4x4. I also love to do the odd mud run too but hate cleaning my quad afterwards..lol. Another one of my passions is hunting. Mostly grouse, but sometimes i go with my buddy for moose when he goes. Playing PS3 is also another one of my pass times. I also love to go swimming at the local complex too when time permits. So all in all life is good. Safe riding everyone.
