Default Spooky night run

Nakman,
That was an awesome run last night! Really a lot of fun! Lived up to "spooky" the whole night including the cop infested drive home. I got pulled over doing 48 in a 45! I didn't get a ticket as they were after intoxicated drivers. Seriously, I have to say that was one of the best Spooky night runs so far!!! A job well done sir!

Yes Tim job well done. Ty has lots of stories of headless bodies roaming the trees and many assorted animals too spooky to tell about. All this was while I was shoveling dirt, Robin retold me all this. SO where did you dig up the headless bodies that were walking around the woods?
Any how had lots of fun with the snow and Ice and near misses with the trees and the truck. Uncle Ben does not know the power of His blowen 80 yet, almost tipped over chris's 4/runner when he tried to pull him out of the drift. All the food was good, fire and drinks. I had no problems on 93 going across at the time I did, but did see several cars pulled over in various places. thanks again. robbie

Was a fine run indeed, I think we had 10 trucks? Me & friend Brent in my 80, MaddMatt & family & his 62, Shawn Cardinal in his 60, Matt Miller & his dad in his 40, Matt's freind CJMatt in his CJ, Chris & SO in his freshly painted white Runner, Robbie & family in his 80, Uncle Ben in his 80, Treeroot & friend Ian in his 40, hmm ok maybe 9, did I miss somone? But it's always nice to live up to the spooky theme.. the run was way spookier at night with the ice & snow, and the next group will surely appreciate all the trail grooming we did just past that last switchback! Only body damage went to Shawn Cardinal, who slid backwards in to that stupid Chevy truck left for dead.. bummer man maybe that new Profit bumper will cover most of that up? Weather was awesome, company was even better. Thanks again everyone!

Sorry, you had to be there, it was just TOO sweet for pics!

Thanks again Tim and everybody! It was a great run and was good that all the stucks were nothing that a little strapping and shoveling couldn't fix!

Hey all...Leona and I had a blast last night. Great food, great crew, and just enough wheeling challenge to make it fun for for those of us who are slightly traction challenged. Think its time to load up those seasonal ballasts. Thanks to Robbie and Kevin for volunteering sand detail through the slick spots AND esp. for pulling my overzealous carnage seeking stubborn arse outta that there snow driftee. Uncle Ben's new Uber-Charger nearly rolled the runner during the sideways pull extraction... (Pssst, dont tell Leona, but I think it was secretly kind of fun in some twisted adrenaline-junkie kind of way) Sure was nice to seem some powder embedded under the truck back at home base. Thanks for putting together a great trip Tim!

Thumbs up

We had a great time as well. Gotta love a party in the snow with about 6 or 7 Golden Retardeds. Mine slept like a log last night, must have been some great woods running while the people were messing around with the fire.

Interesting seeing Hwy. 93 completely shut down for the biggest DUI sting I'd ever seen. No problem getting through since my kids cold feet pre-empted any beer drinking for me. Realized this morning that I got lucky though, I put my cup of homebrew (sampled only, still over 1/4 full) upright in the back of the 62 while I was loading up the kids. Found it this morning, not even spilled. Could have been a long night had that spilled and kindly officer Dan noticed the aroma.

All's well that ends well, even if I did kill the gas pump in Downieville. I'll blame it on the guy behind me, he was making me nervous.

Here's a couple pics, one of the spooky night run spooky fire. I think I see some of the headless people! The second is of my youngest, happy to be back in the truck and out of the snow, but still proudly in costume.

Thanks again Tim.
-Matt

Give me a bit, I'll have some pics of the run up....
