Sorry, for bailing on you guys Saturday after Black Bear but I had other plans on Sunday in Utah and not running Imogene wasn't an option for me since I live 14 hrs. away.

I'll have some photo's up in awhile, as i just got back into Yuma.

Thanks everyone for the great trip. I was a little aprehensive after last years front diff dammage. Short days on trail and lots of Hot Springs soaking was really what I was after. Well, I got excatly what I wanted. Even my wife thought the length of time in the rig was perfect. I got my hands dirty learning about Tacoma c/v's. I also got to practice my Dutch Oven cooking skills. Learned a few things about cruisers and fridges, all around had a big smile on my face. Rain and clouds just made the scenery that much more impressive and never seemed to dampen anyone's spirits. It was fun hanging out and getting to know other members better and meet a few new folks. Next year we'll bring bikes, big wheels, and scooters.

Those pictures, especially the third, remind me a lot of Scotland. Looks like a fun time. All the more reason to get mine running...

Okay, here are some of mine from Black Bear.





Opps!!! Glad Ross made it out okay.


Good job on the cleanup. Wish I could've helped more.

Default More Pictures

My friend, Joe took 505 pictures in 2 days I selected 164 and put them here:

Don't miss the shots of the potluck in the rain at the end.

Despite the rain, we had a great time. This was my third Labor Day weekend in Ouray. I expect to be back next year. Thanks a bunch to the Millers for another wonderful trip!
