Did Rick just have another "senior moment"????????:D

Nope, the lead photo on that page is the centerfold of Off-Road magazine...

My truck was photographed by Fourwheeler for a feature article a week after the photo shoot with Off-Road, but Fourwheeler never ran the article. I think they were pissed that I didn't tell them I had just had another photo shoot the week before. Hey, they never asked!

Could you imagine the same truck showing up on two covers at the same time??? I was REALLY hoping for it ;)

OK, I am real slow on posting at times.

Rick, the EF is one heck of a group of nutbags who come together for friendship and wheeling. This is all due to your foresight, I am honored to be part of your forum.

It took a long time, but the Pumkin and Jack's rig did get back to trail together, and I enjoyed the story of Jack and the flat at Top Of The World.

Mike, it's amazing how much time has passed and how many trails have been run between those two photos. 15 years!:eek:

It was a pleasure meeting you in person and I sure hope we can meet on the trails many more times. :chug:

Wow - time sure flies, doesn't it?

It's amazing how much faster time seems to pass as I get older. We're nearly into April... What happened to February? LOL

CONGRATS Rick! Explorer "antiques" soon. Unbelievable how time flies. As others have stated, glad to be a part of the site from the beginning. Tons of inspiration here. Never thought I would keep the Explorer past 4 years...
