So that's what happened. Seemed like a few people rolled at the tank trap. Saw the disco Sun morning as we were packing up. Not a pretty sight. Also passed by a 109 on its side on the powerline trail up to the second meadow . That was wierd driving passed it at 11.30 at night. Jesse you should join us at Rausch on the 22nd.

I was sitting in front of Keith in the Disco, It really wasn't that bad of a roll over, The hill was steep enough that the four of us could push it back over on its wheels from its roof. Never been upside down in a disco before, damn top heavy trucks. I was bummed I couldn't get the 110 in the picture, ah well always next year.

Yeah, the roll over was really in slow motion and as soon as we rolled the disco over onto its tires there were about 20 trucks on top of us in a matter of seconds. Twilite Zonish.

Oh yeah, Thanks for the loan of the "tripod", Glenn.

Very sorry that I didn't get to talk with more of you (and to steal ideas).

Aaron, what happened to you and your 110? Hell, we waited long enough for everyone to bring their Defenders down. (Did someone count them?)

Keith, Jesse, come on up to Paragon on the 23/24th!

Dave and CVC, I'll send pics probably this weekend.

I counted 48, but one guy left and another filled his place, so 49 total.
As for Rausch, I really wish I could but I'm headed to NY that weekend (Flying...).

Yah, it did, and after fixing it Saturday I was able to hit the trails for a good long time and it did great. I owe a MASSIVE thanks to Trevor and John from Treasured MotorCars for helping me diagnose it. Have an idea for trying to prolong the life of the module that I'll post in the help wanted section to see what people think.

Aw, shucks, ma'am, it was nuthin'.
Felt like it was another day in the office- I check 'em out and than tell John to fix it! We have fitted Mallory Unilite distributors to other British vehicles, I wonder if that would be a good option?
I had driveability issues also on my drive home. I supect a faulty Throttle Postion Sensor, but have yet to diagnose it.
Sorry, didn't mean to steer the thread away from MAR...

Aaron, what happened to you and your 110

Tuesday night on the way home from Circuit City the fuel pump went out. Spent all day Wednesday trying to find a replacement, put on an aftermarket Thurday morning and no good, I had to get one shipped from the UK will be here next Monday. I am hoping maybe they can photoshop the "general lee" into the photo.

Can you help identify trucks in the photo? Post here or email me the truck owners that you know, citing the row (counting up from the bottom) and number from the left.

Tony, I was able to capture your truck in action, doing some fine wheeling! Sorry that we couldn't have pushed it over to the line-up. I guess we'll have to ask CVC to do some fine Photoshopping to put your and Aaron's trucks in the pic...

This other picture shows what has to be the FINEST accessory made for a Rover!

I'll pull one of my HiRes pics and number the trucks so people can post who is who.

Follow-up Post:

I am sorry I didnt get to meet up with half the people who I was looking to meet up with. No cell coverage pretty much killed that as I was giving my number out to a bunch of people who were emailing before the event to get together. A lot of the Defender owner scattered like mice after the group shot was done before I could hand out some stickers to everyone and get to meet more people. But I ended up handing out about 225+ D-90 Source stickers over the weekend to those I ran into so maybe I will start a thread for "Where is your sticker" contest or something. LOL

Have you guys downloaded the hi-res pics that I posted to the Yahoo Groups site? Is that a good way to share photos larger than the 640 limit here on the D90.com site?

I tried but I think Yahoo resizes them down even smaller then 640x480. So no it is not a very good way to share pics.

There will be once I move the site. I am almost out of room again on the server and constantly crushing the bandwidth limits so I think its about time to move the site.

Talking MAR fun

It was good to see so many defenders at the MAR this year, we drove down from Ottawa for the fun, mine was the naked 90. Sorry I missed the picture, i was out marsheling, busy pulling out disko's with road tires.
For those of you who missed the Sunday fun, seems the son of the land owner tried to cut down an Oak tree beside the house. I guess he got the angle wrong since the house is now better ventilated, roof to parlor.

See you all at the next MAR.

Mike, Once you get to the "small" pic, click on it again and you should download the 500k version. Just did it
