Your 40 was sweet then, even sweeter now.

Future plans: gotta get yer picture taken at the top of Tin Cup with a guy named Matt in 2011. Good thing we have a heavy inventory of Matts.

Im with RockDog and SteveH when it comes to the club, in the begining of the threads i had sent Nathaniel an email asking about the run and the club. I have been wheeling a long time with many different people and clubs. I moved here about a year ago and I have been searching for a GOOD bunch of people to go out with. On the 4th of July i went out with a club and wont mention who but i had asked the same questions about the run as i always do. well lets just say it went down hill from there. He said i shold be fine and can do the run with them. Yes the FJ could do the run be i guess he did not read the whole email or have the time to answer my questions. the person leading the trip did not really care much of who was on the run and the club was not very personable. I just got the FJ then and now it has plenty of Colorado pin striping on it that i did not really want to do. Maybe when it was a little more broken in. He took us on a road called the 505 which was about as wide as the FJ and tons of branches sticking out for a few miles. Maybe in my Jeep when it is done but not the new ride. Nathaniel was very informative and knowledgeable of the trail and the area we were in. And everyone was watching there back and making sure others did not need anything. The 4th run they all just left and never said anything. This was a fun run and the folks in Rising Sun were great. Just a great weekend. Cant wait till the next event. Thanks again and sorry for the long thread. See everyone on the trails.

...and I don't know TreeRootCo well enough, but I wasn't certain whether he has lost weight, or just re-sprung the 40?

There "is" quite a bit of difference in sag between the two photos...



...I'm just sayin.

We had a great time also. The kids had lots of fun. I remeber my first runs with RS and not having a CB and feeling like I was out of the loop. Now everyones on HAM and I'm again out of the loop. Nathaniel did an excellent job putting the trip together and dealing with the closed pass and Boy scouts taking over our intended campsite. Put us on the list for GTR09.

It was converted to the Camp Hale run last year, but Treeroot was somewhere over by Mosquito while we were on Ptarmigan as I recall. And only Marco had a 40.
