Ladies and Gentleman, Always a loose term for both sometimes. My first thread.

Question- How many of us great cruiser/minitruck heads have been to all the Cruisemoab events like I have?

My guess is there aren't to many that have this distinction. Not that it would get you any free beer. But I'm curious and it would be fun to know.

As long as the Shiner Bock keeps showing up, we ALL get free beer!
CM06 was my first. Before that, I attended Zukfari, which is, unfortunately, the same time as Easter Jeep Safari. I will never go to Moab again during EJS. Way too much testosterone and alcohol on the trail at that time, for my tastes.

I've been to nearly all the ones I've registered for and nearly all there for all the ones I've attended.

I'll take one each 1554 ale.

Any beer is good beer except for that Light stuff. And thank god it is impossible to count all the beers over the years that Moab has helped us with.

CM2007 will be my sixth.

I bet Sharkbait and RedFox have been to them all. What about Bruce & Barb?

Bruce Miller
01-31-2007, 03:57 PM
Bruce & Barbara have been to each and every one. 2007 will be # ten! We think Dave Brown and Dave & Robin Hartman might have made all ten, too.

Cheesman, I still have a picture of you doing a wheel stand at the Wedgy I think. If I remember I will bring it to the meeting to show you.

Question now is, who still has T-shirts from the events? I still have two from '98. My '99 was retired to the garage this summer and one of the '98's is about there too.

Time flies! I remember that. We ended up clearing out a whole hillside of rock some yeahoos caved into the waterfall of Upper Helldorado so they could drive out. We called Dan Mick for help and he brought in the calvary. We got every last rock moved out and then winched out like normal. Casey Meyer and I also did Proving Grounds that year. That was the last year I went up until last year. That makes it 7+2 then for me. Thanks for the memory jog Matt! Good times! :thumb:

I remember being absolutely scared on the first one. Just spent $3500 on lift gears, arb's, tires, Marlin Crawler. And then everyone there says you can go anywhere. Suurre. Hell's revenge first trail. Came to Dump Bump and dropped my jaw. Everyone seemed to be taking air out of there tires so I guess this is a good idea. They did this wall so I tried it and crawled it the first time. Now there is very high heart rate and a woody. I'm in the right place. And most of all with the right people.

Tom,
I think he means how many people have made every "Official" Cruise Moab since 1998.

Maybe Jeff can help with this one? Mr. Secretary, are there any documents that might be around to put together an official list of all those who have registered for each Cruise Moab since the first?

Hells revenge was the first trail I ever did out there too. Perry took me over to Dave Hartmans and the 3 of us went and ran Hells and a rental jeep followed. It was a good time and we were able to move right along.

I'm really glad that was my first trail in moab.:thumb:

The Venezuelan truck made it the year before too, he had a sweet set up. I remember watching him take some lines that most could not. I talked to him for a while and he had the rig build for Moab on purpose, he had read about Moab and wanted to see it all. I don't think there were to many obstacles that stopped him.

As for recognizing anyone else I can't help out, I barely remember the person in the mirror some days.:o

1: Captain Crunch. I didn't see his rig until 2001, and it was much more "crunched" by then.

2: Nice looking 40 from Cali. No idea who it belongs to.

3: Cheeseman and _______.

4: I never met the Venezuelan guy, so I should not get points on this one.

5. That's Cracker's Bronco. He used to hang with Rob Meredith. I also see Mark Chaney (Shorty) in the picture.

One thing I noticed: No 80 series Cruisers!

That was a set up as everyone in the pics are good buddies of mine with the exception of Cracker as I barely know him. A build up on Cracker though is he is one Hell of a driver! I have never ever to this day ever seen a cleaner line taken in climbing White Kuckle Hill!!!!!!!! Barely even slipped a tire and drove up like the cable was hooked up! Incredible!

Hints:

1. Cap'n Crunch is Greg McNeil
2. Initials....GB
3. not positive on who is with Cheesehead...fist tought was Bruce Minney but second look I think not
4. Initials...AV
5. The one and only Cracker = Dave Pool?
Also in #5 is "Cuiser Rob" Meredith leading and The Yellow 40 is "Tweety Bird" Jim Reece, Jeff "Stonewall" Jackson in the red 40 and Bruce "Bruzter" Minney in the blue 40 with tow bar. The mini truck really looks familier too but no guess....

The Rustiest FJ45 Wagon making it up the shelf road on Cane Kreek open/open and on what appears to be 28" wheels? Note the spotter who helped get the rustiest wagon up that trail, Bruce Miller.

I will look for an old picture but remember the Venezualans? The red 70 was an FZJ. It wheeled great and did some insane wheelies! Appearantly if you load the back with enough gear the 1FZ has more than enough power to pick the front wheels off the ground quite easily! I have a pic somewhere of the little red beast riding out an awesome wheelie after a little too much peddle was used when climbing "Zuk's Bump" on the Spike.! :lmao: :lmao: :thumb:

I missed the first "official" CM in 1998, but been to everyone since...
I remember the way the Venezualians loved the skinny pedal...
I gunned for them on Fins and things and was treated to quite a show...
Never saw ANY group take more pictures than they did. (oh look more sand, better get a picture).
I have a picture with all our rigs lined up at the end of the run and my Dad hanging out of the rig waving.. One of his favorite pictures.

I believe i have the whole t-shirt collection... At one point Dave Brown was making framed pictures out of them.. Don't know if he has the whole collection framed, but he really liked the Art work done by Bruce.....

Back in those days the CHEESY one would lead a weekend training "suicide" run in conjunction with Wasatch for trail leaders...
Those were SHINING TIMES for me and my Red 40!!

Cheeseman
02-03-2007, 06:49 AM
I am careful about this next comment. But doing those suicide runs was how we finally got some trail leaders. No bones 2 trails a day for 3 days. Just to get other people to lead the trails and learn them. Not the hard trails like spike, pritchett or the rocks. But all the rest. Would I like to do that again? You bet. Spring Schedule Ugly. Terribly. But maybe we can figure something out

Boy this will change this thread. Probably should start a new one.

I still want to see if there are more people who have the chance to have a hangover in Moab for ten years straight.

In regards to Dave Brown, you have to know that he has been going over to Moab for 20 years and more. He is also a member of Red Rocks 4 Wheelers. So to him I bow my head even though our record in Moab is great.

Atta boy! A lot of people put in countless hours both officially and behind the scenes to get CM off the ground. I have absolutely no doubt in my mind that Cruise Moab would not have begun when it did if it wasn't for Dave Brown! He came into the Rising Sun circle because of the energy we were stirring up trying to figure out how to do an event. Many of the "systems" in place still in CM are Daves fruit!!!!!!!! Dave, Gail and Kim have earned more respect than they will ever accept. My hat is always off for Dave Bown and family! :cheers: :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown: :)

I Second, Third and Fourth that! He has ALWAYS been there to help out for the event in whatever capacity he was needed!!
My feeling is Dave's strong leadership and energy was instrumental in keeping the event alive when some of the committee at the time decided to leave the club some years back.

We have been truely fortunate as a club to have him and his family as members. :bowdown: :bowdown:

I Remember watching a young guy on the behind the rocks trail talking about how a certain line up "Upchuck" could not be done, and making excuses to take the bypass.. Kim gets in the FJ40 she helped build, and proceeded to shoot up that very line....

What a wheeling family!!! :cheers:

I missed 98 and 99, but have been to every one starting in CM2K (remember that's what we called it because of that Y2K business?). So this makes my 8th event. I also did a rather infamous prerun in November 2000 in my new-to-me HZJ75. Bruce and Barb broke a birf, I broke an axle, Bruce "Pinion Boy" Westlund broke another pinion and we spent all day fixing it. Cheeseman, Purple Taco and Greg Lewis all drove out unscathed.

Kevin, I know you were at CM2K, you were on the committee and chaired the driver's meeting. I remember how you warned everyone that if they got out of line or drank on the trail that the leaders would call the Grand County Sheriffs and they would fly a chopper out to arrest them! That was also the year that Mary Bender wandered into the group and you ended up taking her out on all the trails trying to scare her, but she just loved it anyway. That was also the year the Venezuelans did their Meso-America expedition; Henry Cubillan translated for them. That first day on Fins, James Bingham lead and Neil gunned. Rob Mullen rode shotgun with me so he could take photos.

Those first two years, I got to do Elephant Hill with Royal Rose as leader and tour-guide. There were only 4 of us on that Saturday run in '00, if you can believe it! I think it was '01 when Cheeseman was on the run with us and he picked up all that great history. I don't remember if Royal led E-hill in '02 or not, but I had fixed my truck the previous day and gunned the trail.

My first event in '00 was certainly my most memorable, although 2002 is a close second due to all the trucknage I had.

It seems like these last several years I've been a lot busier with my leading and trail-assignment duties, and haven't had as much time to enjoy it as the first several years. But that's okay, I always get a kick out of leading newbies and seeing the look on their faces when they see what their trucks can do, just as I did back then.
