Some Pics, the first is a Very Hard trail! Don't be fooled by the background! Then some of Pete before surgery, and one of Zach trying to be as cool as me!

Yep, a little before breaking the tank and about an hour before breaking the front diff. But at least his breaks were on the trail not on the friken road to the trail.



Edit: Did anyone get some pics of me with air under the front tires? I was told there were some from the mud pit and from trail 10. I don't need them that big I just want a new avatar. Or if someone has a better pic of me for my avatar from this weekend.

I had a great time! Thanks Ty, Ken, Mike and CVC for putting this together! Great weather, great people, great fun. Sorry the Northerners didn't get to experience two consecutive nights of cars spinnig out on the road outside the campground.
I figure we have at least 2-3 more weekends there before we have done everything they have to offer.
I didn't get a chance to check out Camp-a-While this time, but as it is only exit 112, maybe we should give it a try?
Oh, when is the next time?! Maybe by then I'll have my camshaft issue resolved as well as my 4.10/ARB set-up as well as the Bilstein 7100's as well as removed all of the inside and outside mud/dog prints......

Mike, did you get the pics I emailed? Any of those work? I have one of you coming out of the long, mosh pit, but surprisingly the shutter speed wasn't fast enough for you and the truck is blurry...

Send the batch this way too Ken
And anyone else that took pictures, please feel free to send them in. I will be working on refining the new Trip galleries this week and I promise to post them.

Chris,

I should have some pictures to you soon... Having some medical issues at home with my little girl that are taking most of my time. I'll have to send them to you using a little compression since my internet service provider has limited my out going emails to around 5mb.. Hmmmm, no wonder their name is COX. Pretty fitting I think.. I have about 130 pictures and I don't think that you want 30 or 40 emails.. Of course after you get them I can always send you the full size of any that you want on or two at a time.

Ken,

How is your camera in low light conditions? Towards the end of the day the setting sun starts to play tricks on my camera and makes my pictures blurry too. Not to mention that the shutter speed is slower then on my standard film camera.

Eric, I have a disk for you too if you want to send me your address.
Camera worked ok, but I still need to play with it som more. I can adjust shutter speed and ISO, so it "should" do ok with low light. Not as good at getting clear pics of fast moving Arles Blue soft tops bouncing out of mud trenches though...

Eric, let me see if i can set up an ftp account on the test server and then I can let you uploaded them if that works better. While I may not use them all, you never know when something could be used for something else.

Ken I will shoot you a PM. Thanks!

Oh Trevor, thank you again for the tweak to my cooling system. Been running good using the AC fan since. I realized last night I had the v-coupling replace less than a year ago by a dealership so I should be able to get a replacement and go with that for a bit longer.

Especially of my Disco.

Guys,
Had a great time. Thanks for putting it all together and letting me tag along. This is my first time really surfing this site. Very cool site. Sorry, but no pictures as well. I'll bring my camera next time.

Ken, looks like you could have used that beefy track rod I had...

Could have worked out a deal even. The track rod, for Zach...

The pictures that I took are now up on Rovertym's website under the "Photo's" section. There are 162 of them to look at.

How is the bumper Drew? Any issues going home?
