    That is not the Hudson, that is part of the Cannonsville Reservoir (for NYC) in the Catskills (near Hancock, NY). It is basically just a damned up stream, but it gets wide as a lake in some sections.

    hope u get it out. careful with that infection. I had one get infected yrs ago. not pretty. had to go to see the doc. things he told me sounded like grunge from the early 1800's... I had it! and it was modern times. the bugs don't know no dif. it was gang-related. ;) but he cleared it all up and now little more than a past memory... but it was... I say... it was, the start of something that could have got big... and bad. :nofunny:

    It doesnt matter what tires you put on. 250's and up are too heavy. My dually and 250 dont stand a chance in mud. I dont even try.

    We can agree to disagree.

    Tires make a HUGE difference. Put them cookie-cutter Dully tires on my 7000 pound truck and then put my current wider mud tires on. Test both in my swampy woods and tell me if there’s a difference.

    Trust me sir, Iv been there.

    13” wide mud tires will complete change how the truck floats on top of the mud.

    Good tires make a huge difference.

    However weight in a vehicle is a funny thing....I have navigated the same stretch of road with 1/2 ton x-cab truck (5200 lbs), 1/2 ton Suburban (6500 lbs) and 3/4 ton x-cab (7000 lbs). Literally the 1/2 ton pickup with regular 245/75’s will navigate mud and snow better than the 3/4 ton with 285/75 mud tires. Suburban is worse than either pickup, must be weight distribution.

    Very true.

    But when my one goal is to not sink, wider is always better. Actually longer is better but I cannot afford tracks.

    This is from a couple of years ago, but we still do it just the same. Grill a chunk of Backstrap rare then slice it thinner when it comes off the grill.

    Well the weather experts were way off this morning (they had predicted a low of +2), it was -14 in town and -9 on the house. Water temp in boiler was still 160 at 6 am from the load of hardwood at 10 pm the night before.
