anyone willing to let a staff photographer from the Denver Post ride up with you guys so he/she can get photos of the rigs in action for the article I'm doing on easy, stock trails?

I'm sure we can work it out. Jeff/Martin/Steve, do you have someone riding with you? I'm pretty sure my son will be with me in my 40, but if he does not the photographer is welcome to hop in - so long as they don't mind being in my Siberian camouflage FJ40.

Years ago, I ran into Gaylon Wompler at the Fly Shop in Deckers. He was getting pictures for a story on whirling disease. I recall he had a bucket with glass that let him take a picture where the bottom half was under the water line and the top half was above the water line. He followed us around for a few hours taking pictures of the fish we caught. The front page picture was real cool, fish below the water line in the foreground and my buddy above the water line with his bent rod in the background.

Should not be a problem....there will most likely be 4 people between the FJC and the 40. If the kids are with me in the 40 I will kick them to the back or you can ride shotgun with in the FJC.

Wait a minute.....Boom doesn't have room in the big ole Bronco

If it makes the trip, there is a bunch of room in the Bronco. Could almost even fit the FJ40 in there.

If possible I'd like to host a guest from the Post; whether it is Sheba or another staffer. I'd like to explain how responsible 4 wheeling groups like Rising Sun are good stewards of the environment.

Unfortunately I have to work in Fort Collins on that day, so I won't be able to make it. I'm thinking that the Bill Moore run would be the best since it's closer to stock and won't take as long most likely?

I'm still planning on being there. Not sure if I'll have a seat yet, Kim hasn't decided if she's going or not.

I'm thinking about tagging along on this one...looking for a nice scenic trail for the to enjoy and maybe get some wheel time. How are the numbers looking for this?

If I'm going through the posts properly - it is looking like 7 trucks so far, you would make 8.
