View Full Version : Blow Off Work Run - Slaughterhouse Gulch

07-14-2010, 09:26 PM
Another great run led by Matt Farr. Well attended with 23 trucks. Weather was great, no breakage, great Beer and Pizza afterwards. Definitly better then working.

Kind of coll, as I was leaving the look out point at at probably the highest point, I was talking with Dave Armbruster on the Ham at Quebec and 470. Probably 40 miles away at least. Moved another 50 feet and I lost him though

I was a little too zoomed in on Matt in the picture, but Charlie and Maddie seemed to be having fun

I didn't get a lot of pictures as I was gunning

Thanks again Matt:beer:

I was listening to Romer, on the ham, on the way to work. I guess I didn't do the blow of work run right. :D

That was a great run...made really good time for that many trucks...

Met some folks I've been reading stuff from for years, that was cool, met some new guys too, which was also cool.

Really glad I went,

Thanks Matt for putting that together, and thanks Rising Sun!

just a couple quick shots ...

watching bikeman's 80 get up on the the rock was entertaining...


and then a few of the big group...

What's the story with Jacket's hood being up the whole day? Good to see a bunch of people made it out, lots of new faces and names I don't know! Glad you had fun guys, I was dreaming about this run wishing you good luck while I was stuck at work in NM!

Just cooling it off. It's not regulating its temperature as well these days - so a new thermostat is going in this weekend, and I'm going to fix a partially collapsed lower radiator hose, and then we'll see where we are.
