Thanks to everyone who helped make this happen!
thanks for putting it on!
Thanks for all your help, Chels!
hey Stone how was the wheelin, my son wants us to go again next year and stay the extra day. just wanted to say i had a great time saturday. i enjoyed looking at all the cruiser and got a lot of ideas. i am a little disapointed more guys in my area didnt come to the event. i will work on them for next year.
Frank: It was great meeting you guys also.
The wheeling was not as organized as it needed to be. The campgrounds, from what I heard, were all fully booked by the time they got there. And also, there was a mechanical issue with one of the trucks that was supposed to lead the trail rides, so it kind of threw everything off.
We ended up going to Hale Creek, and some of them did Sunrise Lake afterwards. Next year, we will definitely put more effort into the trail ride and hopefully see some more Washington folks for the event. I know a lot of you guys have built rigs down there, so we'll have to make sure there's some trails interesting enough to keep built rigs occupied.
I bet the trail ride will be even better attended next year, and yes...the club will have to spend more time in this area. I think it's great! I also like the spin-off of trail riding/exploring prior to the run. Seemed to be the kick to get me out a few times!
Stone...decided on the Cruizer Daze dates next year? Gonna have it on Airshow weekend every year? I need to know for holiday selections, as we pick in Nov every year.
Yes, a big apology to gar and the club. Seems Poo decided to have engine problems. Thankfully it was not up a trail, as the hook would drive the main FSR's, and it would have been an edventure getting it to a FSR with no steering or brake assist. I started it up when I got home, and there's sumpt'n knock'n quite badly in the block. I don't think pre-cups, but have never hear it when one drops. Could be a wrist pin, dropped valve...dunno. Poo is down for the count.
No one could have known that would happen, Greg. Poor Poo.
On another note...Happy Brithday!!!!
Bah - missed it by THAT much! Oh well, way to go guys, kudos for making it happen!!
We missed you, Norm!
Thanks for getting this thing together Stone, you did a good job (IMHO better than the last two Cruiser Days I have attended). If I was down south I would have given you more help. Hopefully the great responce from this years event will get more of the club involved in organizing next years event, so you don't have to do so much, and make it even bigger. I was also impressed with the many members who were so eger to help out, especially Marcin (2 day old member!) I'll have a few 's for everyones effort!
I've posted some pics in the Swamp Donkey section of Mud - https://forum.ih8mud.com/showthread.php?t=56270
Marcin was a real trooper! Him and his wife Anya (sp?) endured tons of dust to go wheeling with us. He took his mint stock 40 through some hairy stuff. Way to go guys! Glad to have you in the Club!
It is time...
thanks to all who helped us on the Sunday run, it was great, however the old "B" clanks now like bunch of pop cans behind a "just married" car. It is time for a swap planned for the next year i quess (ania will be chocked). we can't wait until next trip!
