Here are some favorites.

Thursday: Steel Bender Link to gallery (http://rustybrain.com/cruisers/2008/steelbender/index.html)
I led a group of 8, which included a bunch of Rising Sun folks. Ken Romer was tail gunner. It was a good day.

Stop! But hold it for a second while we all grab our cameras...

If anyone has any pics of me on this run, I'd love to have 'em.

Here's Nakman. You know you're a gearhead when: you use a seal puller as a spatula.

Squishy again. His girlfriend rode all the way down in the passenger seat, too. That took guts.

It was good to see Cheeseman's Runner back in action. It looks way better than it did before (http://rustybrain.com/cruisers/images/009.jpg) anyway.

Nice stuff! Daniel needs to show me where the secret tunnel is, to really round out the Wipeout hill experience.

I'd be up to lead/gun Wipe Out with you on Thursday next year. We can do the scenic stop at Tusher Tunnel (The pictures below are just around the tunnel - the tunnel itself was dark - duh - so no photos from in there.), grill steaks, eat ice cream and at the end add a 1 hour side trip to Dellenbaugh Tunnel if people want.

I'm guessing not... :lmao:

Sign me up for Wipe Out if that side trip is involved! I'm way into combining eating and wheeling, really adds to the fun. Family friendly too.

Now I just need to convince the wife that wheeling is fun. Again.

Great photos Matt!

Those Tunnels are sort of fun. A great spot for the family. Many years ago Ginger and I were in Moab with a mini truck clubmate. He had some friends who met him there from CO. Anyway, we decided to go explore Tusher on our own. Boy, this will date the trip. I was driving our V8j60. That morning the mini truck guy spotted me really poorly on Golden Spike so bad that I smashed my driveshaft into an L shape. Right after this he said to me, "Hmmm! Land Cruisers diffs are offset to the right!" Duh! I could have smacked him really hard at that point. So when we went to Tusher Tunnel we were in front wheel drive only. It is pretty exciting driving a V8 powered front wheel drive Cruiser. Needless to say after several almost stucks, my wife was not thinking this was too much fun. Going out alone on a trail in the evening returning after dark in a 2wd Cruiser, not one of my brighter ideas.

The burgers reminded me of my local club. We cook burgers on every monthly club run. We have a huge grill we tote along. It is a lot of fun as it provides some non-wheeling social time. In the olden days we wrapped them in foil and used welding gloves to fetch them out of the fire. Not as cool as a seal puller, but still a tool.

Just download CutePro FTP, and it'll be easy.
