What I know about the job Scott is that I am on the central team with a guy named Chris Nelson (fullnelson on mud). He is the lead driver. We both have Fj Cruiser that we will be driveing to events and other gigs in the central region. We will also be drivng to the east coast region and helping at big events. As well as helping with big events on the west coast. Part of the job is to get people at these events a chance to get behind the wheel of a FJ Cruiser on the trail. To talk to people about the vechicle and what it can do. We will also have information about products for aftermarket up grades and such when they come availble. So I do not have a copy of the schedule yet, but get a few days of training will Bill Burke for 4 days in Grand Junction area. Then get a vechicle and get to set it up some. I will know more in the future. So some of the events Alison mentioned was Moab, Telico, Rubicon, Black Hill CC. I do not think I will be at all these events. But I will be on the trail alot over the next 8 months. Just so folks know, Robin is supporting this alot by allowing me the chance to live a dream job. And the chance to do more of this thing in the future. With out the support of a good woman, this would not happen.
Sorry to be a tease, but I have to leave some to the imagination.
O if I am at Chinaman's gultch, I will be working, or playing, boy am I confused. later robbie

Way cool, Robbie! Congratulations. I really do hope you make it out to Cruise Moab -- it would be awesome on so many levels. You'll have to get a CB in that FJ Cruiser, so we can hear your narrative on the trail:

"Ah yes, the filtration system for the air conditioning is working quite nicely, even as trail dust fills the outside air. The windshield is getting a bit dusty, so I'm applying the three front wipers now. Now adjusting the subwoofer levels..."

I'm really glad for you. Wish I could go along for the ride. Take LOTS of pictures!

Wow, that's sounds like a great opportunity. Robin is so cool for supporting you taking off to do this. I could never pull that off.

Robbie,
Just now catching up with things and am happy to see your announcement. Sounds like a dream job and the contacts you are about to commence making will fill several little black books. Congratulations and Toyota is every bit as fortunate as you are for the new arrangement.
Steve and Suzie

Thanks again for the well wishes. I can see swampers real easy, like some LTB maybe a 33-34 (with a mild lift). I do not think toyota will go for the swampers, I do think we will be on some BFG AT in a 265/75/16. That is the optional tire offered at this time. Should be way better than the H/T dunlop tire they have in stock size, but the cool thing is the stock rim should be a 17 /7.5 rim. So many more tire can be put on the 17 over the 16.
Ige, the cappucino will be in first thing, How would I survive the morinings out in the wilds(WITH LIONS, TIGERS AND SNAKES, oooooMY) with out some killer coffee. But first I will have to find either a low amp draw 110 or a 12 volt one. (power points and a inverter are in the thing). Later robbie
