I just cannot picture that place with moisture of any sort, well at least without salt in it.........

Oh Ya!! What an excellent weekend of fourwheeling and partying! It was great to see everyone again. We had no new board members out there this time just regulars. That made for some excellent trips out into the desert. Tow straps were only rarely needed as everyone made most of the obstacles look easy ;)

I'll be posting my pics tonight.

Looks like somebody found the mud there. You must have hit that puddle doing about 30 to get it up on the roof like that.


We found the mud along the side road the parallells 86S. Jefe hit it hard enough to almost nail the people on highway. That and everyone behind us said there was no water left when they went through. Chunks of dirt clobs (what was mud) is still falling off the truck. Where ever I park it leaves a dirt ring :D

Yeah there is, what's up with that Jefe? Looks like you might want to take a look at that.

I made it home a few minutes ago.

The zuk was throwing fits all weekend. First lost a belt, then a nut fell off that holds the battery cable to the starter, then it popped the clutch cable off a holder, lastly it lost the clamp bolt for the clutch arm, which meant I had no clutch at all.. BUT, we got it all fixed, and it drove on to the trailer under it's own power this morning.

The bonfires was great, the tree burn was simply incredible, incredible weather (it kept getting warmer every night!), scaring Jefe once (or was that twice?) and having him lift a tire was priceless.

I greatly enjoyed the potluck, and the backup plan of hotdogs/hamburgers put smiles on everyone's faces, so that makes the whole trip worth it for me!

DWD, we found the hill in your avatar, but the hole is gone now, but it's still a good drop off (and slide).

Nice pics Rick/Fenderguy! It looks like it was a lot of fun, and everybody's trucks are looking awesome.
