Hey guys, heading to the round up next Monday.

Should be a blast, Nick Stone from the TLCA is picking me up in his 1981 BJ42 and we are driving 4 hrs from dallas fort worth airport to katemcy.


Funny part is I sold him that rig almost 8 years ago, he flew in we met at the airport drove around vancouver, then he headed for the black hills cruiser meet. Talk about iron butt award.

I cannot tell you how many great people I have met in the landcruiser groups and the things they have offered to do for me. Last year Bob B in Oregon offered one of three rigs to drive down to Pismo, his supper cool FJ60 with the 1hz would of been my first choice.

Oh ya, guess I will meet Woody for the first time.


Hope to catch up with the VI Cruisers when I get back.

Rob

Thread hijack - does Lee drive a brown 60? I keep seeing one with Texas plates. I figure it must be a UVic student or something.

PS have fun Rob!

Wow, all I can say is WOW.


I will not tell the whole story, you can read about on mud.


But, I spent quite a bit of time with Marlin, dude is off the handle cool, I think he is part energizer bunny.

Got a full dazes ride with Charles FJ40 in his linked full bodied cruiser with dana 60s and 42s, half the day he let me drive. These rigs just make it real easy to look good on the granite(sticky like Moab).

Second day I rode with Jim Alexander, 100K plus buggy with 45degree rear steer and stickies. It is hard to believe how you can drop off a 6 foot ledge without slipping a tire......

I am still vibrating after doing the comp trail, defies gravity.


Nick Stone picked me up and took care of all the logistics, I gotta give a big Texas thanks.

Green Lantern, Kowboy, Texican,Woody,Cruiser Crap,FJ40 Charles, Orange FJ45, Green Fox, Iron Giant on and on, such cool folks.

Pics later today, downloading four cds.

Just a couple pics, you can see a couple hundred Woodro uploaded in https://forum.ih8mud.com/trails-eve...al-roundup-2009-photo-thread.html#post4275381

Couple pics, Garry in the kool FZJ45, Redline boys flopping thier rig. They were pressured into the crack and got to high with the stickies, I just new it was going to roll but left it to the spotter. Dog fell out the window as it flopped, fur sure thought its back was broken, but walked away waggin its tale......

Couple more shots

The yellow mini just plain rocked out for a leaf sprung rig, plus the driver is pretty darn talented...

I think Woody just finished a climb, stopped the rig and the drive shaft fell out....


Oooooh, motley of the crew, Cowboy, Woody and Marlin.
