Pics and info from the meet!

Post by Jimny » Sun Jul 16, 2006 1:57 pm

I made it back sooner then I thought I would.

Had a great time!

All who made it: In no particular order

ArtZuk: Must be nice just to travel around from one art museum to another! :wink:


Tweeder: My 4 wheel driving must not have scared him too bad, he kept wanting to ride with me. :cool:


Tweeder Sr.: When you get the patent on the cellophane covered seats I will take a pair! Also thanks for getting rid of the mosquito's :wink:


Stevec: Just because I picked you up at the airport doesn't mean I have to fix you breakfast! :roll:

Smuz: Did a LOT of work and driving just so others could drive his rigs! :beer:


___TR___:Great abilty to track us down in a place that has miles and miles of wooded trails. :hail: Plus: Thanks for not rolling my Sami! :beer:


Rebel Black Bart: Should have got an award for slicing two tires on the same rock. :pissed: Plus" One of the best "Poser Shots" of the weekend! :cool:


Wasp: Why didn't I think of getting a cabin with AC? 8)


Sancho: "....watch out for that TREEEEEEEEeeeeeeee!" :shock:

BillJohn: Thanks for ALL the help! BTW: Thanks for all the help! :beer:


OkieZuk: Great trail ride, that was ONE STEEP HILL! I think Tweeder's knuckles are still white from that! :worship:


Jimny: I put some more dents and scrapes on the ole beater, but no one could tell. But I know there are pics that prove I did. :twisted:


Since I left my camera card here (at home) I didn't take any pictures, but there were plenty of others that did. Can't wait to see them.

I would like to thank BillJohn from iZook.com for helping with the meet, mostly just for being there on Thursday night, that would have been one boring night for me. :beer:

Learned a lot of great info and tips from him!

Also would like to thank Bill for being with us when RBB sliced both of the tires at one time, because of the two spares I had both of them needed air and Bill had air on his cool rig.

Let's see some of those pics you took!

Well, now that Russ knows there is a special picture for him, we should probably just let him sweat it for a few days... :twisted:

The glass in those windows was perfect though, wasn't it?
