..And nope...Not a #TBT picture..:p:

I love this picture. It makes it look like pushing just the truck wasn't hard enough for me so we added additional weight.
 






...I heard this morning that an Editor of a magazine has already seen teaser pics of the run..:biggthump

But did they like what they saw?
 






...If all the stars align it winds up in print..Until then..:dunno:

..I do know that people have been voicing they are tired of just jeeps in magazines and this photographer seemed that he was impressed with Ford Explorers and Rangers hitting the trails..

Well no Rangers but I think there was enough vehicles for different shots
 






as for I-5 - it was a total madhouse. I swear, I get cutoff more times per mile by idjits than anywhere else in California and that includes one of the most congested roads in the US, I80 in berkeley,CA.

Even saw the results of road rage - two cars, nose to nose, and an ambulance to pickup the results.
 






..Hoping others will post their pictures and stories but I'll post these shots till then..:D

Mind if I borrow this for Facebook? since you've already got it watermarked
 






...Sure but it doesn't hurt to mention "Shots by Tbars4" and ExplorerForum.com when sharing these pictures..:biggthump
 






Home safe and sound. Problem free weekend other then some loose bolts putting an intermission on one of the runs. My apologies. Great group! Great fun! Aj who was with me said she had an absolute blast and enjoyed socializing with everyone and had a great time! She couldn't get enough of the trails as was pretty evident by the 4 of us on last night's run! LOL

Thanks again for setting it up!!! I'm stoked the cards fell in place to allow me to make it!

BTW, Rick, I'm starting to think it's almost more Clydes fault then mine at this point. I mean you wave a butt in front of a dog, it can only resist so long... LOL

If course I will, oh and by the way, when I got home, Dora told me that she didn't mind getting manhandled like that, since it was her fault for getting stuck in the first place haha. That is an awesome picture.

We look forward to seeing you and Dora on future runs too.:).
 






We made it back with great timing. U haul only charged us for 2 days. Had a great trip and the new tow rig performed great. Feels more confident and solid then the f150 did. It's still a pig on gas though. Getting the cruise control working should help that.

I didn't take any pictures though. Some go pro video, just need to review.

Great to see everyone
 






BTW, I didn't snap a single shot all weekend myself but I'll see if AJ will send me what she took...
 






Cell phone pics from this weekend. More pics to come when I get home.
