I had a great time, and already looking forward to next year. I wasn't expecting to see the turnout (over 300) that was there. Very impressive. A big thanks to ATJ for the raffle (which I was lucky enough to win a couple things :D ) and all the fantastic prizes. The food and company was great too!

BTW i had a reporter from whatever the local paper is there in my rig for 20 minutes or so......and it figures it was the only time i needed a tug. But i plugged the NEA and organized wheeling for most of the time i had him.

Lets see what if any makes it in.

Not to worry about him, Scott. Rafikie grabbed a spare assembly from his shop and Jon the Jeep Elf installed it right there. Later, the ZJ owner followed Jon to his shop, Back Country Customs (iirc) and they fixed an annoying sensor issue for him.

Wicked special thanks to Ryan from FTR, Rafikie and Neal from wm4x4 and the guys from jonfund for all their help. Building the trail and leading the trail all day, again and again. :)
Scott, I wish I had a better plan to utilize your skills out there. It was extra help and I had no plan, but you did great floating from need to need when needed. THANK YOU!
Tammy, thanks for bringing Steve Harper out in your XJ. I've never seen someone so happy that people were out having fun on their property.

I went out very early yesterday and deconstructed the trail. Almost a mile of caution tape and I filled the entire rear of my XJ with those tomatoe stakes. The thunderstorms repacked all the loose stuff and I could completely crawl Stump Hill and any others again.

It'll be bigger and better next year.

Edit on that license plate, after I washed it off I found that the number was 43W H90 not 43W1190 :lol:

Hey can you do poop happens... my favorite saying from my Jarhead buddies and I, "don't sweat the small sh!t". Luckily I have great friends that helped me in a pinch, thanks to Jay for the tow and Vickie for the use of the Jeep while my truck gets the engine in it.
