The one Fernando posted is owned by him, and is in NY. 37" Maxxis creepy crawlers on color matched boosts with plenty of goodies underneath, very nice.

Also, just wanted to say thanks all that came out for the good time. Just got home, 15.5 hours after leaving this morning; the lifted disco in rear-wheel drive on 33s was not meant to go that far. Not looking forward to doing that drive again anytime soon... Will upload photos tomorrow.



.....averaged 10mpg the way back for roughly 80 gallons of fuel.

Glad you made it home safely Zach.

Who was in charge of driving the Puma?
Will T told me he blew the doors off a Puma in his 5.0 130 on I-81...

Yeah pretty sure he damaged the hinges with the 5.0, too bad he didn't make it to MAR. When he blew by the Puma it was Les, Mark, and Harry inside. They shot me a text about it as I was coming a different way. I texted Will today about it, he liked the Puma even if it was just a blur haha.

We all took turns driving the puma, but it as mostly Mark driving it on the way back, and me driving my Disco.

Good times

Thanks to Dave Short, Mike Boggs, and everyone else involved for putting on the event. Had a great time. Sorry didn't take any pictures. And thanks to Rovers North for sponsoring and being present, as well as thanks to the other sponsors as well. They had some nice raffle prizes and I scored a couple of lights provided by Lucky 8, and a gift certificate from Atlantic British

I didn't get a chance to thank Jeff B. (nomar) for stopping to check on us when my truck decided to do it's random electrical gremlin issue (i think - really not sure what is wrong) on the way home. So thanks Jeff It happened again once more when we slowed to a halt on I81 for an accident and I also blew one of the coolant lines that go to the intake manifold later in the trip, but it was easy to bypass. A little more drama than desired on the way home but all turned out well in the end. Thanks for the escort Loic.

Was surprised you and I didn't blow a hose when the temps were all over the place. Guess it was only a matter of time.

It was just age - the hose was literally falling apart in my hand when I tried to cut it short and reattach.

Made it back averaging just under 65 MPH in the OM617 powered 110.
Not being able to select 4th for a while and fighting through the other gears brought the average down because it was so painfully slow to go from 3rd to 5th on the upgrades. Uncle Douglas was behind me for a while on I-81 when this was happening. Then it went away as quickly as it came. Will have to change the clutch master and slave which are highly suspect.

Dave Short did a great job at the raffle.

Thanks to Mark, Les, Zack, and the rest or the Rovers North crew who hosted the competitive driving that all takers enjoyed so much.

Bob, Larry, Mike, and the others did a good job to route us to, from, and on the trails.

It was an event worth attending... we appreciate all the sponsors and especially the property owners for letting us enjoy the very nice location.

Yes, I should have mentioned how much I liked the trials. Very well setup and I liked the 5 run format! Hard enough to stump most of us at some point, but not impossibly hard.

Great shots Zack. The shot of the "always happy" Loic and the last one of Stuart Moore and his clan are my favorites. Camping with Galpin with his S. African accent and Loic with his, and the two of them constantly ribbing each other was highly entertaining all weekend. Combined with Robert "Cannonball" Davis and his "glamping" we had a blast. I posted a thanks on the clubs website this morning. Charles post up the video you shot of Raub on that rock ledge.

That is Stuart's truck, me thinks it's too slow to generate the speed necessary for a roll

I don't think he does any wheeling that would cause a roll-over, and it was mostly only driving around the farm and doing the trials course.

I was hoping it was a couple of hot girls who were just out of gas or something...

Too bad about the gremlins.

You did give me a good idea to put a spare plug wire in my tool box, so thanks to you Charles.


Big thanks to Dave Short, who worked tirelessly before, during, and after to pull off a pretty good show. He's a fine emcee as well. Who knew?

Dave, what were the final attendance numbers?
