Awesome run, thank you so much Martin for setting it up and leading!

It was cool at Rollinsville seeing so many 40s in one spot:

The weather was spectacular, and we even got to see a marmot!

I don't care that it wasn't particularly challenging from a technical standpoint. In fact, it was really nice to not worry about breakage and lines, and instead enjoy the scenery!

There was a cairn just past the top with a mailbox that said to enjoy the view from the rock house at Loch Lomond Overlook.

This was the only hill of note. Jerry had some issues with his new-to-him V8J40, but made it up under his own power. I am sure his passenger (Kevin Ehrlick) gave him some pointers on how to get it set up better. At the top, we enjoyed lunch, the view and great FJ40 camaradarie!

Thanks for tail gunning and for posting the pics, Jeff!

I agree, it's nice to do runs occasionally for the scenery too.

Man those Fj40's look like a lot of fun. Nice rig\avatar FJBen.

The kingston peak sign picture is pretty sad to see. All the other pictures are sweet.

Somebody should start an "Other than 40's Run"!
