Here is a few more
John, Kevin, if you guys don't mind could you put some of the shots you took of my truck on a disc and send them to me. I am on dial up so downloading pics is a real PITA. PM me and I will give you my address. I will do the same if you want some of the shots I took.

Great time cruising with the 80's

Maddbaggins and Tools R Us - GREAT PICS!!! You're making me homesick.

You wouldn't recognize the Gap these days Steve. There was big fire and run off erosion that has transformed the trail completely. And I hear that some of the approaching road has been graded. Still a good run though.

The Oracle side was burned and the trail dozed, three years ago? In the picture of Rob's blue truck by the creek you can see the dead trees, the new bushes are getting established, it's not totally barren. The trail in that area was dozed, the storms this spring made it somewhat challenging, not like it was, but still a nice run.

This guy was chowing on ants, looking at us like, "get your own dam ant hole!"

Rob in the car wash, the dozing drained it.

Here's a few shots from Oct 2003. Just after the monsoons after the fire. The burn area was like another planet then. Scorched ashes and eroded ruts everywhere. I wish I had some pictures of that, forgot the camera that day.
