What a great run. The weather was near perfect and the company was great. It was nice to see the variety of rigs and experience levels. Thanks Matt and Mike for leading/gunning. And thanks RS for the killer pizza.

My 40 performed flawlessly. A huge thanks to Martin for helping me with it!

Default More PICS

Great times were had. Wish I could have made the pizza party but since skipping work, I needed to get home and make up for it. I hope this becomes more or less a regular thing this summer. When I saw 21 rigs there I was initially thinking we wouldn't make it off the trail until 8pm
What a great group of guys and "gals".

On to the pics....Parking Lot pics. 1st pic is prior to that shopping cart hitting the side

Last pic was Matt's kid trying to Judi-Chop me

Just as corsair stated. I have the high res versions but didn't want to overwhelm you guys with large photos. Let me know. A couple of these overview shots turned out really nice.

Those wheel stands seem to get bigger and bigger every year.... Sorry to see such a pretty Marmot on its side - good thing those fenders are easy to replace.
