Had a blast (as usual) with old friends and new in the Smokey mountains this past weekend at the 9t
Thank you! We had a blast. I’ll post some action shots from on the dragon once I buy them from killboy and us129photos.
Got new window tint installed today at the local Tint World here in Tuscaloosa, AL. I decided to go
