Meet Ed Buster, Team #15, '78 Chevrolet "Big 10," Truck Class alternate.
Q What made you want to compete in TTC?
A "I have been a Four Wheeler reader for years and have always loved the trucks and the write-ups on the event. My friends and I have spent a lot of time on my rig and know that it can be competitive in this competition."
Q What type of wheeling do you normally do?
A "Rockcrawling and mountain trails."
Q What type of wheeling do you rarely do?
A "Mud bogging (I know that doesn't make much sense with having Boggers on both axles, but I guess I'm just too lazy to clean the truck up after it's been dropped off in one of the deep holes)."
Q If you could go wheeling anywhere in the world, where would that be, and why?
A "Truly anywhere that I have good friends, frosty beverages (at the campfire, of course :)), and my two brothers to share it with."
Q What TTC event are you most looking foward to, and why?
A "The Tow Test. With the new big block and the not-so-light rig, I think we have an awesome chance to make a great pull!"
Q What TTC event are you not looking forward to, and why?
A "Mud Pit. Again, I'm just too lazy to want to clean the truck. :D)
Q What's playing on your iPod/CD player right now?
Q The San Andreas Fault is very close to camp. Have you ever been in an earthquake?
A "I don't know that I have ever been in one, but I'm pretty sure the last time I tripped over the campfire I caused one (they don't call me Big Ed for nothing)."
Q Have you ever been chased by a wild boar?
A Yes, and her name was Jennifer. That old sow was ka-ray-zee!
Q Have you ever been subjected to poison oak?
A "Been around it, but luckily I have never broken out from it. Guess all those paint chips I ate as a kid gave me immunity to it."
Q What's one thing people should know about you?
A My grandparents. If you haven't met them, you are truly missing out. They are a big part of who I am today, and I love them with all my heart.
