I'm gonna post this here too since I don't have many pics to offer!
OK gang... Well, I only took pics up to the "squeeze". I guess I just got too wrapped up in the trails to be able to fiddle with the camera and take any pics that weren't blurry!

We claim this land in the name of Wrangler Forum!


Thar be Pirates here!


Bo Duke...er, um... I mean tiny climbin' into her rig, Duke Boys style.


Lined up at the first obstacle.








Brian and the squeeze... Plenty of room.






Everyone made the squeeze look easy. I have to tell ya, it was my first trip through it and I was holding my breath!

Uh Cain, busted pic with the winch cable on.

Glad you all had a great time. When I'm gainfully employed I am going to be all over Big Bear with you all.

Eh, you are doing fine. In all reality your build is going exactly how it should. Get some more seat time without them and it'll be time to move up.

Great pics! Which one is the video or where do I go to find it?

I insisted on the winch in that area. The picture doesn't show that the back passenger tire was dropping into a hole and bringing the front way up. He probably could have made it but the drop off on the far side gave me a bad feeling.

Glad you found it Jerry.

I should have cut the last 10-15 seconds off, but I was too tired to bother yesterday.

There are some great pix in there of everyone and everyone's Jeep! Plus, if anyone isn't familiar with the google pictures stuff, you can "download" the pics and get them full size onto you're pc (or computing platform of choice)

Not to take away anything from some of the other really nice rigs on this trip, I have to say that CCain's CJ is just about the SWEETEST and coolest Jeep I've seen in a long time. He took an old beat-up blue CJ and with a lot of work, awesome creativity, and rattle-can olive-drab paint, turned it in to what is now something I'd be proud as hell over. It is NICE!!

This is one of my favorite shots of the day. In an earlier post I was talking about seeing blue under and above the Jeeps as they started down Heart Attack Hill. This pic is a perfect example. This is Brian (Unlimited) on his way down.

Edit: This photo was taken by Debbie, Larry's wife (Stevens243). She did a great job of taking pics all day!! Thanks guys!

Oh yeah, now that you remind me I remember now it was a YJ. The round headlights and the flat CJ dash really fooled me into forgetting that. Just goes to show what a great job Chris did on it!

I don't think I've done this yet, but I'd like to give Unlimited, aka Brian, a huge HUGE thank you. His organization and determination (and competitive nature) made this weekend shine. From the night run Friday night over to the mud caves to the fantastic perfectly timed wheeling day/poker run and pot luck dinner Saturday, the dash plaques, the flag, the wildebeest; just everything Brian. Perfect group, perfect weekend.

Thanks.

Well I got home about 8PM yesterday. It was a VERY windy drive back. It the wind blew from Cajon Pass all the way to the base of the hills on the last accent to my house. I have no idea how hard the wind was blowing but there was a couple of times the jeep wouldn't even hit 55 mph. We got tossed around pretty good but even with loosing time in the wind I managed to cut one hour off the trip by stepping up the speed once we hit the San Joaquin Valley. I was too worn out from the drive to get on the computer let alone up load any photos.
But to recap what was stated by all, this was a great group of people. Much thanks to Tiny, Cain and Brian for putting this thing together. We all wheeled, ate and drank like old friends catching up with each other. My son Jordan couldn't say enough how great all you guys are too, he talked about the whole thing all the way on our "white knuckle" home and now he wants to sell his car. I am glad to have met all of you and will be looking forward to another WF run. I'll upload pics when I get home tonight.

Thanks again to everyone.

I gave all three of you a big thank you in the California thread, but I want to do it here as well. I'm sure the logistics to putting this all together were a bitch, but from what I saw, everything went as smoothly as it possibly could. You three did an awesome job!!! It was an absolute pleasure meeting you all and getting a chance to wheel with you. I'm REALLY looking forward to the next run with you all.....as well as the 2nd Annual WF M&G next year!!!

Brian, Chris2, I also thanked you in the cali thread, but it truly was an excellent weekend and in addition to all the prep work and effort put out during the run, I want to thank you for having patience in the extreme by putting up with Barbara, the bitchy Borrego beast.

I'm sure that it's only her looks and personality that stand in the way of her finding a flashlight to charge up, but she prolly needs to...

Thanks again! We had an AWESOME weekend!!

And a round of applause for Pointy. He drove, what? Nine hours? To come on down to the M&G. You are so right, Point, it was like standing around with a bunch of old friends. Great weekend.

x2! And yellow jeeps rule!

Glad to hear you made it home safe Rob! After my arduous 75 minute drive, I was thinking about you. I was beat and was very glad I wasn't still 7 hours from home at that point..

Yellow does seem to have some kind of advantage doesn't it.

Meeting you all and the run really was worth the trip.

Wow Jerry, I don't know what to say other than "thank you"! My Jeep wants to be just like yours when it grows up!

And Pointy, THANKS for the bikini! I could only imagine how sunburned I would be today! You saved my life man!

On that note... We had limitless years of wheeling experience on that trail this weekend and it was awesome to watch it! We all serpentined the trail like some kind of well oiled, robotic snake made out of Jeeps! It was truly an honor for guys like myself and turd (who don't have much wheeling under our belts) to hang with the big boys! And you know, the big boys we were hanging with were ALWAYS there to help when the goin' got tough! It was a beautiful thing! And that truly lends to the caliber of the people we had on this trip.

Have you ever been a part of something bigger than you that almost felt so much like a movie that you could swear you heard background music?! Well, that was how this weekend felt to me!

Yeah, there is something going on with the belts in the sidewall. I don't know how many miles you have left in those tires but I'd replace it before I took it out in any rock. I don't think it'll fail on the street tho...

It looked fine yesterday while you were running at 55. No wobble or jitter. Weird.

While I said this elsewhere, I'm chiming in with the others in this thread to thank Brian and his crew (Chris, Chris, and several others please pardon me for not naming everyone) for putting on just about the most well organized and perfectly executed offroad trip I can imagine.

From finding my name on the Park Ranger's list and my camping space number as soon as I arrived, to the information packet he handed everyone, the dash plaques, the poker run and cool prizes and the great pot-luck dinner Saturday night, to his great spotting on the tougher spots on the trails.

Brian, you da man... I thank you and your crew!!

And your single barrel Kentucky Bourbon wasn't too bad either.

I have to take a minute to comment on the culinary talents displayed by Unlimited and his wife, 4point, tiny, and everyone else!

That spaghetti spread on Saturday night made an all you can eat spaghetti dinner at any church look like a soup kitchen! I'm not kidding! Macaroni Grille and Olive Garden have NOTHING on Brian and Judy! I haven't seen that much food since a family reunion!

It was like a kings feast! We sat out on a crusade to conquer the trail and then we celebrated our victory with a spread that would make Henry the VIII envious!

Here's me at dinner:
