I hope you get lots of responses, Sand.  I need to trade in my golf cart for a Kubota or something similar.  I'm no longer a flat lander, and that golf cart won't help getting around any longer.

If your talking work/utility vehicle. 
Polaris ranger is the way I would go.
A 500cc or bigger will do a lot of work, or cruise around easily..


Gillligan, I totally Agree with Sanddune on this. My dad has had both a Kubota and a mule. Did not like either one and wants my 570 Polaris bad. LOL. The other 2 were way to slow for him. They are more a hard working vehicle. Good for the purpose though.  I am very happy with my 570 for utility and hunting. But, I do want a trail toy so I am following this thread hoping to pick up on some info. Also as a side note the 570 will hit 55 before the govoners kick in. Not sure if I want to go much faster on gravel roads so I have not messed with getting it to go faster.

I do not have a Razr but just a 570 Ranger so I cannot speak to the racing aspect. Just use mine for utilitarian reasons and gravel road running. Also, take it west for my Wyoming hunting trips. I am very satisfied with it. But, I have heard and read on forums and review sites that Polaris has slipped in quality control the last few years and are putting out a lot of inferior products. This is not first hand experience by me. Just other enthusiast talking. I am thinking of getting a second machine like a razr so I can ride more with my friends on some trails, and I am going to seriously consider Can-Am this time.

My old glass mugs were pitched as .75 cent refills forever. Nothing at all written on them. They were sold at the saloon show way back in the early 80's. Never remember seeing a sign at all. Just the bartender guy hawking them. I never drink sweet drinks anyway so I never carry them except at Christmas. Ill just have the water please.

I wonder how this will tie into the Grand Palace proposed expansion ? They were going for some kind of tourist trap boardwalk experience. BTW I just got back from Asbury Park NJ and The Stone Pony. Now that is some authentic Boardwalk stuff. Not fake fantasy stuff.

Dollywood Discussion / Re: Dollywood 2019

Well with that being said, SDC has been officially ranked as the 4th best U.S. theme park. We could now be seeing a lot of additional investment over the next few years on the same scope that we have been currently seeing at Dollywood over the past decade. (who was ranked in at #6, surprisingly enough)

https://www.news-leader.com/story/news/local/ozarks/2018/06/22/usa-today-poll-rates-silver-dollar-city-among-top-5-amusement-parks/715901002/

I agree, all these online best of polls are nothing more than clickbait. No Disney or Universal ? Sorry, as much as I like SDC they cannot hold a candle to theming at the best of the best. What would Disney have done with TT ? I could only imagine.

As much as I love SDC, count me among those that considers the list to not be officially anything that means much.  Top 20 parks picked by their "experts", and then narrowed down.  Not even referring the questionable tastes of a couple of the starting experts, to put SFMM at number 1- when it has almost nothing but coasters anymore, and to not have a Disney or Universal park in there...

I'm not knocking any of those parks, but at least 2 of them I might not have even considered for the top 30.   And there are other fairly glaring omissions of parks that I would have put well above several of these.

SDC would possibly crack my top 10, but it wouldn't be very high up.  And I love SDC.

Here is what  I would like to see. Cut out the festivals on the holiday weekends totally. Bluegrass  on Memorial day ? ZIP.  Gospel Music on Labor day. Cut it out and give something everyone can enjoy.

I guess its open season to start posting politics on the forum now.

Have you ever met her in person?   Shes not a nice person.  Very fake.

I have not met her in person but she has helped a friend of mine so I will be voting for her. Maybe she is fake but she did what she promised to do for my friend. And that goes a long way with me. 

As for my original post I thought the unwritten rule was to not discuss politics but you opened the can.

SDC Memories/ Park History / Re: Gaslight Square
« on: August 02, 2018, 10:17:58 PM »
While I might not be out there dancing, I love seeing all the people that are out there having a good time.  The square can get pretty packed with people enjoying the music, so it's obviously pretty popular.  It's only for 2 weeks a year, where they emphasize the "night time party" mode of the park, so it doesn't bother me at all.  Let them have their fun.

I just don't want to sound like one of those grumpy old people yelling, "get off my lawn you pesky kids."  I figure if I get to that point it's time to quit going to parks. :-P

If I ever get to that point its time to quit living.

Here is a article from the Washington post about the guy who designed and stretched the ducks. Correct me if I am wrong, but didn't Herschend manufacture and build all the DUC vehicles when they were franchising out all the other locations ?
