      Hello all. As the member who this phrase was coined after, I believe we have enough members now to start making an actual board and sub-division of Serious Explorations. Therefore, I must lay down a few rules for the nominations and elections.

      1. Anybody can be nominated that is a member of the roll over posse.

      2. As a member though, consideration for election must be based on a few simple factors.
      2a. Stupidity-Ie, getting hammered and trying to do doughnuts in a wash. Who was that?
      2b. Ammount-Ie, number of times that any one person has had at least two wheels, of the same side of the vehicle, off the ground for more than, oh let's say 30 seconds.
      2c. Dedication/Damage-Ie. The amount of damage sustained to the vehicle, but the dedication of the owner to fix it and continue on.

      All roll over posse members are allowed to vsubmit nominations, but a short story briefly describing the incident must be accompanied so that when voting comes arround that members may have a basis to vote on.

      Let's have fun with this, and remember, the longer you continue to offroad, it's not a matter of IF, but WHEN you too will become a member.

      I think we need to add:

      No membership will be allowed if the person rolled/layed it over for the express purpose of joining the posse.

      Otherwise, happy trails are here! :D

      I agree Tom, although I don't think there are too many Explorer drivers who would do that. Staged or preplanned rollovers/laydowns will not be excepted as members or nominees.

      Just to add this as I forgot before, the nominees will be for:

      President
      Vice President
      Secretary

      We will add more board members as needed or as the suggestions arrive.

      Nobody wants to roll. It just happens. This posse does not have the prestige for people to want to join. It just happens.

      What about slow learners? You know, that class of rare individual that just can't seem to get the hang of it and rolls it again :D
      And again, LOL :D

      GJarrett, refer to 2b. of initial post.

      Mikke, we have to have some rules, and staged or purposefull damage can not be accepted.

      The posse isn't in place to give honor to someone. Rolling/Flopping is not a badge of honor - unless your the TinBenders out of Ridgecrest, CA

      That's why we discourage it. We don't want people rolling/flopping their vehicle.

      For me it's a toss up between Bill and Tom... I think Tom has Bill beat for style! Not everyone can claim to have endoed a Mazda Navajo:eek:

      So here's my list:

      Pres: Tdavis - Frequency and style
      Vice: RangerX - Frequency
      Secratary: Diffwhackdaddy - Humor factor!

      I guess I'm just a supporting member with just 1 layover under my belt.... knock on wood!!!

      Note my qn on the other thread - is the Posse limited to fourwheeling whoops like we've had, or do street accidents qualify for membership?

      Ditto Rick..... tdavis gets my second for vote on President based on sheer consistency and numbers of flops :D

      How many has Bill had?

      Yeah, I agree. Somewhere in Oregon I had to stop and duct tape the winshield to keep it from falling out.

      Hey! Bill (RangerX) has more roof time than I do!

      Heck, he's collapsed the cab how many times now? Two?

      Besides, I don't have an explorer/navajo anymore.

      Ah, but you did Tom. And until you flop or roll the Zuk, you are still a member. And that doesn't mean go lay the zuk over in the driveway to get out of the posse.

      I too only have one rollover, but you're right Rick, humor was a large factor. Hence bilaw 2a.

      So that's just two for Bill, but four for Tom. Bill's just more efficient at completing the manuever :D

      Yes, but remember 2c, Dedication/Damage. Tom no longer drives a Ford. Therefore my nominations would be:

      President-Bill, for his devotion to bilaw 2c.
      Vice President-Tom for his frequency
      And below for Secretary, whoever it is for the plain and simple Oh SH!T factor.

      I belive 3 is the correct answer for Bill. I know of at least 4 for Tom though. He tried to hide the first flop, but it still counts as two wheels on the same side were up for at least 30 seconds.

      Yes, it's three for me, thanks for counting, Rick!
      Twice onto the roof, both times effectively totalling the truck. Two rebuilds. One exo-cage installed. One roll onto driver side, with zero damage.:cool:
