I'm glad everyone made it home safe and happy. As I've said before in this thread, I feel honored to have met and wheeled with everyone who came. Rob defiantly won the "most mileage" award. When I finally crashed on the couch last night, I was thinkin' the he was probably just getting home. Thanks for making that long drive pointy....
So, the wheels have already started turning for WF Westside M&G #2. Mark your calendars for March 27-29 2010! I'm taking suggestions for a location......
Thank you Jerry and Chris and everyone else for all the complements. It was a pleasure to be part of this great event and meet such great people. I had lots of help from my wife, Chris, tiny and Rob putting this thing together. I still continue to be amazed at the quality of the people on this run. I look forward to the next time we get together.
Jerry, I'll be stopping at bevmo on the way home tonight for a bottle of Bowmore Single Malt Scotch to add to the motor home's bar.... It'll be there waiting for you.
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.
Absolutely nothing wrong with a safety line. It helps you get more comfortable with how far your rig will go without actually putting yourself in danger.

Man, what a long day at work, I just got in from hurdling turds. Anyway, my brain is still racing thinking about the numerous fun times this weekend. I don't think I could pick a high point for the entire time as so much was always going on and everyone was so friendly and willing to help. I just want to take a moment and give a huge thanks to Brain, for his efforts in organizing this event and with sharing his knowledge of wheeling and spotting with me. Without him, my 'lil YJ would not have made it back as shiny as it did. Tiny, cCain, you two did a great job also with making sure things went smoothly and for the great conversations and jokes that were non stop. Steph and I had a wonderful time and now she wants a Jeep, but wants a pink one, haha. Thank you to everyone else who drove out for the event. It was a great time and we are looking forward to the next one.
I was wondering what kind of fender flares those are... What brand and what price range
Those are Bushwhacker's new flat 6" flares, they are priced in the upper $300 range. They are made from a new much more flexible plastic so they don't crack and break as easily as their more brittle Pocketflares are so well known for. I've torn 2 of them away from the tub and damged 3 of the 4 on the trail but while they have bent and gotten well scuffed up, there are no actual breaks or cracks in them.
And Chris, yeah you are the artist man. It's like Planet of the Apes all over again.
