Day before Mother's Day run at the Cliffs.

Looks like the Trail Team and our beloved benevolent dictator will be there.

If you haven't been, this is a great excuse to try it out.

If you live in the Windy area and haven't gone, this is your chance to go with a bunch of folks. Lots of people will be uninterested in body damage, so there will be opportunity for easy wheelin'. I'd like to get a group to go do carnage, 7 and 10 as well.

There is a campground just North of The Cliffs if that is what you are looking for, otherwise we can sugest a few locations.

I wanted to wheel my other rig this weekend as well, but the shocks I recieved from Doetsch Tech today look to be 1 1/2" too short.

Tundra 5.7 dragged the pig home like nobodies business. I do love that truck. How come you guys don't have one to show off?


Had a great time today. I'm glad everybody seemed to wheel as hard as they wanted and not harder than they were comfortable.


The Trail Team presence sure makes an event. Thanks a bunch to Roosterdo for suggesting it and thanks to Woody for making the side trip to wheel in the Midwest.

I was amazed at the FJCs. The owners' attitude toward wheeling them is great.

We had a great time. It was a different park than my last trip out due to it being so dry, but it just made for a different kind of wheeling. It was great to see Gumby and Roosterdoo again, and to meet Scott, Woody, and the other trail team members.

I'm ready to go again. :D

Had a blast out there today guys....... I was really impressed by the number of FJCs running around and it is great to see them getting used the way they are supposed to be :grinpimp:
