I never even saw the "red elephant" -- that's so cool. Where was it on the trail?

It's up along the flatter top section of the trail after we come through that grove of soft top eating aspen trees and before the turn off for Mill Creek. I mentioned it on the CB as I passed it, but my radio isn't working so great.

nice looking run fellas. I have to admit, since I broke up with the guy who gave me my FJ40, it's been really hard to get close to it without crying. These pics of the 40s out on a trail fills me with the happiness and respect I initially had for my FJ. I'm working on it this weekend!

Wow, I didn't know about the red elephant in the tree! That is so cool!

Max, I'm just joshing ya - a bit That's cool that you put FJ60 axles under your truck too - that's gotta help the stability quite a bit so to you!

Sheba - we have a lot going on this weekend and it would be one of the few weekends you shouldn't be working on your 40. Saturday is the Rising Sun Rally, and Sunday we have trail runs. I'll be happy to give you a seat with me on Bill Moore!

Sheba-take Jeff's offer for the seat; it'll be great.

Personally I have a family engagement on Saturday and have to travel on Sunday or I would be at the rally and on the Sunday runs.

Looks awesome fellas, I am so bummer to have missed it! What a treat to see so many 40's on the trail. In Moab this year, I was the ONLY 40 on all three of my runs with the event.
Nice to see so many doing what they do so well.

Saturday sounds great! I can't go to Bill Moore though because I have a senior portrait session that day in downtown Denver. I need to read back over all the posts to see when and where for Saturday and thank you for the invite. I seriously need to get out of my house. I feel like I've been hiding out.

Does anyone have Bills email still? ( the guy with the big yellow 40)

He gave me his buisness card but it flew out my shirt pocket on the way home from wheeling. Completely forgot about it until now.

Thanks!
