Default Bill Moore 08-10-2008

We had a very nice run up Bill Moore today. It was a small group, made even smaller because I rode with Jeff.

Here we are with both rigs aired down and ready to head up.


It was overcast the whole way up and it misted a bit of rain on and off. It is beautiful up there - great views, flowers and purple pine cones.








Jeff took us for a hike up and around the lake where we all had lunch up on the rocks. Thank goodness Bill's rock was a bit bigger than Jeff's, otherwise the kids would not have fit.


Here are the two rigs in the parking lot. Bill and Athena's FJ Cruiser is a very capable rig.




As far as I know this is the only carnage of the day.



Jeff, thanks for leading and letting me tag along. Bill and Athena it was a pleasure to spend the day with you and your family. I look forward to seeing you at a monthly meeting soon.

What a wonderful day!

As noted above, Ricardo decided to park his LX470 and ride shotgun with me. That was way cool; he's learning about his 71 FJ40 and one of the ways was by riding with me in my 71. On the way down the trail, I helped his learning experience by showing him how NOT to come down off a rock too fast ;-)

New tail light is ordered in from Stevinson today :-)

Bill and Athena Innis wheeled their very nicely built FJC, along with their wonderful kids (Crumb Pilots) William Andalucia and Stirling. Bill's an excellent driver, and has already attended Cruise Moab, the Rally, this run and they are looking forward to joining Rising Sun at our next meeting.

Athena explained that all of their modifications are from trail damage - when something breaks, it gets upgraded. Good philosophy!

The wildflowers near the lake were absolutely astounding. The light misty rain kept the heat down, yet the views were still spectacular. We all got wet boots and shoes on our hike, but Athena showed that she was the smart one by wearing sandals. And I have never, ever seen purple pine cones before. Amazing!
