I had a great time both days. I have got to get the full size images from Chuck though, amazing camera work!! I'd like to be partial and say the second one is the best but they are all really cool!
Also, a shout out to Dave for the excellent recap of the day. I couldn't have said it better myself, or did I, "it's a bronco its what it does." In all seriousness though thanks to everyone for a great event. I enjoyed meeting some new folks, even if they were jeep people.

|jesse0920||Had I known sooner I would have made the Saturday run too. I had never run holcomb Creek before and had a blast. As always it was fun meeting new people, thanks for the invite Chuck. Nice pics btw, especially that first one you posted...|

Our next event everyone:

It was an epic two days for sure, always good to meet new Jeep friends and re-
acquaint with those past.
Holcomb was a good day, believe there were 5 rigs, well 4 and a "bronco". No one got hurt and only one ego got bruised when a JKU failed to get all 10's from the judges for a very epic pirouette manuever that most have never seen before. Don't think we got a video of that but am sure pictures will surface soon. DaK got to use his winch for the first time by giving Dougzin a short tug over the Holcomb obstacle of the primary rock garden by use of a snatch block. Good recovery training for all. OBTW, that was video'd. We saved him some face by not having the ladies perform the recovery. We were all impressed by the young man's wheeling ability on this trail especially without lockers.
Since we all know that every run that going well something has to happen Jose decided he would be the one to sacrifice to the trail god's by pinching one of his air bladders on a rock at the gate keeper. Of course we know how this goes, two people working, 10 standing around watching and offering advice. The exception was with this trail repair is that no advice was being given, lots of sarcasm and jibes were being delivered as Jose and Bronco Dummy performed the tire swap.
Special thanks goes out to ChuckRN and his bride for photo documenting the run and as Jose stated Chuck is an awesome spotter to have on your runs. Always good to have a camera around. Well okay, not always.
For those of us headed back up to the Antelope, Apple, Searles Valley areas Chuck treated us to an awesome "high-speed" route out of the forest and down to the valley floor. Bronco dummy was getting his NASCAR on by utilizing the banks to maintain speed through the turns. Jose, bit the bullet and ran tail gunner and literally sucked in everyone's dust. Jose also learned that, "if you are not the lead dog, the view never changes". Yeah, let that sit in your head for a bit.
But in the end the quote of the run was Bronco dummy after navigating the gate keeper with ease, "Its a BRONCO. It's what it does."
Thanks again JoeBot and CritterT for making this happen already looking forward to next yr.

|JPi1||Thanks to Aaron and Joe for this fantastic event. I've been to that memorial at Heartbreak Ridge at least 15 times, but going up there with guys that actually took that memorial to heart, and knows what serving our fine country is all about, got me kinda choked up. Thanks to all our men and women that make our country what it is!|
