WOW! what a trip, that was an awsome weekend of wheeling and camping.

Just got in and haven't looked at the pictures yet but will post them up here real soon after I upload them and check them out!

We had a great time guys, dispite any mechanicals/carnage it was still one of the better runs I have been on in a while.

I have got to find a way of ripping the video of me "Bunny Hopping" my junk from one side of the climb to another! :eek:

Pics coming up

I am back. WOW...... What a great weekend! I washed all the red dirt off and lets just say "Bare Metal" :)
I will let the others post about my fun. Lots and lots of body damage but no drivetrain damage.

I WANT SOME PICS :p

If you guys could email me some of the pics of me before you downsize them? I print them and frame them. Glad you all made it home safely.
 






Pic isn't the best angle, but two words....... (I think you know them:D)

Well the batteries are croaking in my memory stick adapter so I'll go by new ones tomorrow and finish up then.

But I know for a fact that Johnstone has some incredible photos that I saw him shooting (eh you just though some of us weren't watching ;) )



I also watched some of the video and it's pretty frigg'n great too, so were the night runs!

Damn, missed another. Looks like great fun. Well, after December, I'llbe free and can make it to pretty much any run at any time (well that is if the wife lets me :p ). Anyhow, just keep me in mind until then, as long as you don't mind a 2WD tagging along.

Then again, maybe my tranny will go out by then and I'll be able to swap in a V8, 4WD, and a REAL tranny...
 






Awesome pictures!

Nice pics...keep them coming guys!
 






Muah ha ha ha ha!

It was a real fun trip. It would have been more fun if I could have brought the Sport Trac, but that was not in the cards.

Anyway, I've been uploading my pics to my Imagestation account. I have over 200 already uploaded. Here's the link:
http://www.imagestation.com/album/?id=4288693779

I probably won't have anytime for wheeling for the rest of 2003. Except maybe the 1st week of Dec. I'm taking my last week of vacation then. Hopefully I'll have a functioning front differential by then. :D

My friend Steve's pics will be uploaded to my Imagestation account too.

SVO is now known as Nuckin Futz to us wheelin Texans. And Brian Green is proving it takes a lot to roll an Explorer. Cuz try as he did, it didn't happen.

Oh, and nothing thing we learned this weekend. The best time to go to BMRA is when hunting season begins. There was hardly anyone there this weekend.
 






Very nice pics
 






See Johnstone I told you, you had some awsome pictures ;)


:D
