I know, I was really bummed but my day off comes around on Tuesdays this summer... and I was afraid the timing wouldn't work well for getting to commitments I had yesterday earlier in the afternoon, turns out I was correct.

Bummed to miss this one for sure, great pics Martin! Yeah, a blue and orange cruiser would have been nice... or even Subz's purple cruiser

Here are some pictures from the run. My passenger Jeff (Mendocino) took many more, so hopefully he will post up some good ones.


The lineup, with Martin in the lead.


Our leader.


Max had a full crew with his Dad, Rob, and a couple of friends.


Kirk had a sweet 40 with a new 305. Hope we'll see him again.


Some of you may remember Bill Davidson from the BOWAGW run a few years ago. Great guy. Awesome Cruiser! At one point, a motorcyclist passed us, weaving in and around our trucks. He stopped in front of Bill's 40 and said, "That's a BIG one."


The Hulk. I was the tail gunner for the day.

Nice to see the old iron get out for day!

Next year for the 40...

A few more...


After getting his Cruiser going again after a vapor lock problem, Martin made good time getting up the hill.


Max with his posse.


Getting a little tippy there!


Jake and Charlie. No, they're not twins!

On the Mill Creek loop, we found an old cabin called the Empire Hilton. Bill said that they had run the same trail a few weeks back and met some folks staying there, who were "Straight from Deliverance." They said they had been coming up to the cabin and staying there since the 60s. The cabin is fully stocked with bedding, stove, food, etc., and anyone can stay there.


The Empire Hilton


The sign over the door.


Max inside the Empire Hilton.


Sleeps many uncomfortably!


The pantry at the Empire Hilton.


The stove, for warmth and cooking.

Thanks for posting the great photos Matt!

Note: No one was standing on tippy vehicles while moving. Just long enough to get straps on them. We were all clear (and pulling the strap) while the vehicles regained their footing.

Great run, thank's so much for organizing it Martin!

I have a few bugs to work out.

I will try to get my pics up asap.

Thanks

I just have to say Max needs to get that tire off the roof, every time I see a tire on the roof of a Cherokee pile or a Grand Cherokee pile I point and laugh.

Good to see you driving though Max!

Did you notice his FJ60 axle conversion? Pretty nice.
