Anybody get any pics of Sancho, Whacker and Sleepy?
The above is my opinion. It is subject (like all my opinions) to debate, disagreement, rude gestures, and loud raspberries.

i think that Dad may have some on his card, but they'd be all sitting in camp.

They never did go with us on trail rides so I don't think we do.

When Sancho went with us when we was following Okie Zuk there should be some pics of him then, I have requested from Okie all the pics he and his friends took of all LJ's, just got to wait till he gets them from them etc...

Hey we were wheelin, the only time we got out to take pics on the trail was when Steve rolled over, got stuck or needed a push up a hill.

After Smuz gets Mouser back on his feet we need to go back there and so I can take you to the spot you wanted to go. I wish I had known that before we started packing up. I know Whacker would have made it up it.


It would have to be the first weekend of September or next year in early spring. Well maybe October of this year.

Huh? I never rolled over, and the only time I needed a push up a hill was after I got stuck (only once) and plugged up the exhaust with mud!

I was going to ask when you rolled. I was thinking 'I know I would remember someone mentioning that.'

I got the mud in the tail pipe trick at the meet here. It was packed in there very tight.

Yep your right, but I had you going there. Mind you, you did have to throw out your pretty little passenger and get a fat guy in to keep the right side wheels on the ground :)

Ahhhhhh weight distribution, it works real well in these little baby's! We had to do that a couple times at this meet.

Specially when Rebel Black Bart did the poser wheelie stand, we had to have two people on the front of it so he could back it down the hill. Although that was in the Sami, thats why it took two people instead of one. :wink:

Nice pics Bill!

I can't believe you got a pic of me wearing jeans - I changed into shorts within about 15 minutes of getting there, and never got the jeans out again!

Nice, very nice. Took a while to view them since I am on dial up with an really old laptop.

You know Smuz, good thing I couldnt make it, would have been sad to see the Sami go up against your rigs. I would have felt so bad for you.

Just Joking.......

As for next year, make it later in the fall and maybe I can be there. My return trip isnt until Sep 07. Plus think how much cooler it would be in Oct...
