Great run guys! :D
Yesterday was my first club run as well as my first visit to Slaughterhouse. Perfect choice for an afternoon run that can be done by any level vehicle and driver. I know that somebody will post up some of the great pics that were taken but I didn't bring a camera :rolleyes:

It was nice to put more faces with forum nics and see some great rigs, thanks to Hulk and the club for providing the pizza. It was my first but sure won't be my last!:cheers:

Those two 40s catching air looks like the same truck with a different paint job!

I had a blast on first first "official" RS run (although I see myself in the Spring Creek trip report with AxleIke a few weeks ago - a combined YT and RS run....). Great group of guys, and some really sweet rigs.

I took some shots that I'll download tonight and try to get posted up.

When I described the trip to my wife last night, one of her first comments was "oh jeez, now your going to want a Land Cruiser....." :thumb: Maybe one day when I burn out on my Taco....

Enjoyed meeting all of you, and hope to do it again soon.

Spring over vrs spring under. They are very similar throughout! Red Fox co-built and trained! Note: Red Fox has the fender holding down the hood and Kim's has the hood holding up the fenders! :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: :hill:

I'm adding my thanks too, great time! Didn't realize it before reading this thread but this was really my first RS run too. Cruise Moab the last 2 years but never a club run.

I had a ton of fun yesterday. I ended up paying for it when I got home cause I had make up work to do, but I will do it every week if I could. Any takers ????

2 years and never a club run but a member still. I thought they kicked you off the team :eek:

I have been running for a few or more of these and I am still not a member :rant:

Hmmm, my membership may be due for renewal :eek:

Looking for takers? I'm in, the boss says it's fine. :D

From the pic above it looks like at least Tim was having fun! I remember that hill in open diffs!

Whose tan 40 is that? Nice looking truck.

Wish I could have been there, but this is my 3rd week of work and I started after 3 weeks of vacation! I didn't think they'd be too happy with that...but now I'm kicking myself for not having been there, the Brahma needs to taste dirt soon...

Thanks again Matt for leading this run. I love it every year! King had a blast too, he'll be taking a lot of memories back to Shanghai with him - I don't think the 4 wheel in China much, especially around big cities. He took over 260 photos! I took 22 :-)

Anyway, here's a baker's dozen.

This first one is Matt conducting the driver's meeting:

Rzeppa

These next two are first me, then Matt coming the first hill from the meadow. I selected these because we are both in almost exactly the same spot, taking the exact same line.

06-29-2007, 12:17 PM
Seem's every time I take Chris' photo, he's got that perma-grin going :-))

Rzeppa
06-29-2007, 12:18 PM
Again, King had a blast. We all went up the hill, back down and back up again several times. Here, King rides up with Matt.

Jeff Z. (the other Jeff Z. :-) and family are having a great time too!

Rzeppa
06-29-2007, 12:23 PM
Not sure who's 80 is getting the wheelstand there. Following were Kirk and his family (4 kids in the jumpseats!). It was great to wheel with Chris and his Purple Taco again too, it's been a while.

Rzeppa
06-29-2007, 12:25 PM
I really like seeing Tim having so much fun in his 40! Dude's a regular bobblehead with a perma-grin!

Rzeppa
06-29-2007, 12:28 PM
This is Dan's son Dustin doing a wheelstand in Dad's 80. King took one shot and I took the other. Kid's a good driver!

I had the same angle as Carlton on Kim's wheelstand, but his came out better, so I'm not putting it up here.

Rzeppa
06-29-2007, 12:32 PM
I have 100s of other photos too. I'll stick 'em up on my web space, so you can pull down any you want in hi-res. Mine were at 4Mp and King's were at 1Mp. Happy cruisin'!

Looks like it was a ton of fun. I am bummed that I missed the run that all the 40s came out to play. I should just quit my job and wheel! :)

GREAT pics everyone! Just got back from 10+ days up in Grand Lake so as soon as I have a chance I'll dig through the photos we took and get some posted up as well.

A big thanks to the club and to Matt for leading. We had a great time and I got to learn even more about 4-wheeling.

The most memorable part of the trip for me was hearing the wife say "You're not taking the bypass!" on the last major obstacle that gave everyone a nice DS wheel stand (pics in post #28 IIRC) while making you feel like you were going to slide into the tree. After following Nemo around most of the day and watching what his rig did I started to head for the bypass. The wife would have nothing of it :)

Wish I would have had the camera at the ready to catch Nemo doing his wheel stand!
