One funny thing was, I could always tell when you made it off an obstacle by the scraping noise!
Thanks Drew - Yeah, really grateful for the rear hitch

I decided it was best to learn how to drive it stock before making any mods. Now that I see how it handles a few mods come to mind. First I have to repair the damage: Popped bumper end cap, crushed tailpipe and tweaked passenger mirror. Not too bad for that long, low slung 62 of mine

I would love any shots you have of me on Fins...

you can send them to me <snip>

Thanks man!
Okay, I'll send them tonight when I get a chance. Your connection fast enough to handle full size or should I reduce them a bit?

Can you send me the ones you have of Emily on CD?

Chris

Two sides of the story...

One, like you, I really missed the 40! Especially watching Treeroot and Bustanutley stretching out on obsticles! The other side of that coin is the 80 did EVERYTHING I asked of it with ease! Best part of the day Sunday on one of my 6 trips through Gold Bar trying to get Big Blue 40 back together was a couple of older J**p guys actually stood on the trail stopping me from going in and warned me that it was very rough terrain back there and if I choose to go on back I probably wouldn't be able to get back out! I guess its one of those things I wouldn't understand!

Awww, how cute! What a bunch of nice, delusional guys. Great story.

What time was Kevin finally back in motion? Boy, he had some breakage this year. I think he'd be deserving of "The Order of the Ring of Misfortune" if he was a RS member.

We rolled into Spanish Trail around 4:30pm Sunday. I have had a trail fix on nearly everypart of a Cruiser at one time or another but this one kicked my arse. It wasn't a difficult task just bad karma! Gold Bar Rim definately had it in for poor Kevin! I asked him if he thanked Gooney Bird the first time he had safe passage and he said no....I think the bird was determined to make an example of poor Kevins disrespect! Lesson learned....ALWAY pay respect to Gooney Bird as you pass his feet!

I don't think any RS member really broke did they?

You Rock, Kevin! That was very nice of you to stick it out and help Kevin get off the trail. We should have some sort of special award for you.
