Thanks.

As you can tell by my membership number, I am now the newest member to this forum (although I have watched it from time to time over the years). As for getting a Cruiser myself, all in good time. I haven't owned a Toyota in several years now, but that will change. Not to mention, I'm getting pretty good at wrenching on Ben's stuff now.

Again, a great project... thanks for organizing it. I am glad that I could be part of it.

Default Jenny Creek News Article Needed for High Trails

I got this email from Shelly Surface just tonight. If any of you can write up the story and supply pics I think we can still get it in to High Trails magazine.

I had told Ige that I would like to attend then a few things went south and I haven't been doing much else but work and hospital. Again, I am sorry but would like to hear about it. Could you maybe do a write up for the newletter and get it to Chris by Saturday? I know short notice but maybe you already thought of that and did it. We love to read about things like that in our newsletter.

Hey Rising Sun guys

I was in the red Grand Cherokee up there...

So I know there were some people walking around taking pictures but I haven't seen many - Where are they?

It was great meeting all of you - hope to see some of you out on the trail

Hey Ryan, welcome to the Rising Sun board! I was the guy in the red FJ45 pickup truck that got stuck in the middle of your convoy on the way to your trailhead ;-)

I suspect many of the photos are being witheld in order to publish them in Toyota Trails, the magazine of the Toyota Land Cruiser Association. No photos that ever see the light of day in public on the web are ever published in the magazine.

Hope to see you on the trail again soon too!

BTW, I like your username. A couple weeks before, we did Bill Moore Lake trail and there was a guy in a disco up there with the following on his custom license plate:

GROUP W
