Fathers Day Run 2013
Thanks to Jeff for leading this. I had a good time with my Dad and kids. The trail was a bit of a beater. My under carriage and sliders got a workout. I'm glad my control arms, mounts and skids were aftermarket and beefed up. A few others were not so lucky and took various damage. There were about 8 of us. With about about half new to RS. They all had great attitudes, a good time and learned a lot. We had 2 other 3rd gen runners with us and another one behind us in another group. So that was rare and kinda cool for me.

As Breckrider60 (Christian) was driving by me I noticed his tie rod bolt was loose and bent. Randy helped complete a trail repair for him. Glad Randy had a spare heim joint and bolts. A few others had some other issues. So we didn't finish till about 5pm. I70 was was a non issue coming home. What I would consider normal for a Sunday. I got no pics. Someone please help me on that.

Thanks to Jeff for putting this run together. Fun day on a challenging trail with great folks.

Rachel took the pics, so I'll see if she can post some. She's pretty bummed right now as she threw a connecting rod in her mini truck on the way home from the meet-up spot. We're looking for a replacement 22 RE.

I, too, would like to thank Jeff for leading this run and everyone else for letting us tag along! I had a great time and look forward to more of the same in the future. Sorry, to hear about Rachel's rig:(. On the bright side, she was undoubtedly my kid's favorite part of the trip. I'll post up some pics when I get them uploaded.

I got these uploaded last night:







Dave trying to get that ARB over a pesky rock...


I mangled this tree trying to get up a flat faced 30" rock with 32" tires on my Driver's rear:p:


And a few more random shots:

This guy was pretty much fed up with pinballing around the rear of an 80 by the end of the day:o

I didn't get a good one of the lineup...

As previously mentioned, Rachel was by far my kid's favorite part of the day. Thanks so much for putting up with them Rachel:bowdown:

Speaks for itself;)


Thanks so much for a great Father's Day:D

Jesse at ATLR sells new 22re engines if you are looking for a long block. I have one in my son's 4runner. Runs great.

Looks like a good run:thumb:.

Thought I picked you guys up for a bit on 146. while coming into town from Wyoming.

My son and I had a great time! It was a nice, small group, with well set up rigs and good drivers. As Scott mentioned, mechanical issues were fairly minimal and the weather was great. It even rained a little bit while were on the rock hill. I took a bunch of pictures. I cut them down to 640 x 480 so they'd fit on the forum, but if anyone wants any at a full 8,000 x 6,000 let me know and I'll get them to you.
