    From my ride today. Northern Dutchess County NY. The "High Point" of the powerlines. http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y142/vieuxfort/IMG_1865.jpg http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y142/vieuxfort/IMG_1870.jpg

    I'm in 845, Clinton Corners, Have a DRZ400S. You guys near Orange County, I have friends that have ridden at Tetz Concrete in Middletown. If you google it you can see the track in the woods using satellite view. Its supposed to be above board and legal.

    Lyme Disease Alert!!

    First time I got a bulls eye and never realized I had been bitten. Tested positive and went on Doxy. Second time knew I was bitten I did not test positive, but around here because Lyme is so prevalent if the tick could have been on you for 12 hours (I doubted it) they throw you on Doxy for 21 days. Third time tested positive but never saw a specific tick bite. Went on Doxy. Unfortunately the signs and symptoms could easily be caused by other issues. I felt excessively tired and felt some minor joint pains, but those are both hard to gauge. To make matters worse, there are two tests, (I think Eastern and Western blot tests, nothing to do with regions). The eastern is more common but the western is more accurate. I hate antibiotics, but if you have health ins. and think you might have it or have been exposed get tested, no sense in taking the chance. On edit. There are many anti bug creams / sprays that are effective against ticks. Worth it to use IMHO.

    Lyme Disease Alert!!

    I did not realize it is out there also. I've gone through the Doxy a few times, it sucks!! Lyme is no joke. I have a friend whose heart stopped due to lyme and fortunately lived through it, and I know others who still have lasting side effects. It's vicious unless caught early.
  8. No problem. Good luck.
  9. Not sure which transfer case you have. From my Haynes book, they seem to show two options for (actually three and knowing Ford, maybe other options). http://s4.photobucket.com/albums/y142/vieuxfort/transfer%20case/?action=view&current=BW13-45.jpg This look like the mounting holes are threaded. If the threads are stripped, drill them larger and tap them. http://s4.photobucket.com/albums/y142/vieuxfort/transfer%20case/?action=view&current=BW13-45.jpg These mounting holes look like they are also threaded. You could drill them and tap them, or just drill the holes larger and use a nut on the other end. Do either of these resemble what you have? The Haynes also shows a NP-208 transfer case, but that shifter set up is a bit different.

    Reverse gear isnt working...

    Just make sure you are turning the reverse switch while you use the shifter....
