I figured 2 out of 3 uglies in one meet was plenty. :p:

Just kidding, I had to move across state right before the meet. I couldn't pull both off. :banghead:

Thanks! Yes I got a new camera and software (Nikon D7000 & Lightroom) just before the Moab trip this year. I'm starting to get the hang of both now...

Wish you could have made it!

Couple side notes. On my way to Colorado thru the southern rout I saw a road named "Happy Jack Road". I wish I would have taken a picture for Happy Jack.

As we were leaving 4 points we passed a Google car, I suspect that my Monsterneer will be in a couple images on the 160 East of 4 points in the near future.

They have those all over now. I think it was spured by the Hummer comercial that used the Song. The ones that has been around for a long time are Happy Jack, AZ., and the happy Jack mine south of Hite Crossing in Utah. I had no idea about the song when I picked that. I started out in a local 4x4 club and picked Mad Jack as my handle back in the late 70's. But another member came back to the club that had that handle first. So I changed it to Happy in 1980. Figured Happy was better than Mad anyway.

One of thess days I'm really gonna make one of these. Missed it by "that much". Good news is I'm drawing wages again. Bad news is I have to make manditory meetings and beg for time off.
