That's awesome, almost makes me feel like going back over there. I was there for Part I, Desert Storm. Lots of land and heavy equipment to make the track I am sure.

Have fun and more importantly, stay safe!

Thanks for your service.

Not at all, the Sidewinder Fuel 30% I ordered made it here in 8 days, thank you.

No stabilizer at all, just good old Iraqi Soil, rain, and Iraqi magic dust.
But paposwing14's sweat probably helped stabilize it.
