    OK,

    Here is a quick update. WHAT A BLAST, IF YOU MISSED THIS RIDE, YOU MISSED A GREAT TIME! Camping was awesome, I think it was seven of us, both Friday night and Saturday night, FWD/Fred, found us a great camp site in a wash about 3 miles from the trailhead off the dirt road, FRED YOU DA MAN, awesome spot, no major traffic and not a lot of wind and dust.

    We met up with Marv and a group on Saturday morning, and ran Upper Woodpecker, this ride was the BOMB!!!! Awesome driving and awesome trail, no major breakdowns, but some body damage and some minor breaks.

    Sunday was ARCA Rockcrawling on Lower Woodpecker, this was also a blast, and an awesome time. Saw 2 rollovers, and some awesome rigs.

    All in all, this trip was awesome, and the people that made it, had a great time. The best part of this ride, were the people that attended. Thanks everyone for making this ride such a great time.

    Here are some of the pictures that I have uploaded, not all though. I still have more to upload.

    Here is the link:

    Once again,
    Thanks everyone

    Don't rub it in. /forums/images/icons/frown.gif Oh well, I spent the weekend building a new front cross member to get ready for my cross over setup that's on it's way.

    BTW, the link just takes me to "my photos". Looks like it wants me to upload my pics there, rather than view yours.

    Anyway, glad you guys had a good time, looking forward to the pics.

    Sweet pics, looks like you all had alot of fun. I wish I could have been there. I hope to catch the runs you all do this summer. I have to pick up my 14bff, and D44 when I get back next week for spring break, so hopefully my rig will be set up to run trails like that this summer.

    Glad you guys had fun. I couldnt make it because I was out on my "new boat" for the first time. Its a 1965 Howard v-drive. I was out cruising across the lake at 60+ all weekend /forums/images/icons/smile.gif Fast boats as awsome! Had to break it in so I can take it to Lake Havasu for spring break.

    Let's see, there were six K5s including the Chalet, two Chevrolet pickups, one Ford, one Jeep, and an ATV. Plus Grant(seventy4blazer) and his wife, three or four kids, Eli's friend Dan, and a couple of other guys in Jeeps that were apparently tagging along for the ride. I know I will probably get some of the names wrong, but here goes...
    Rob and son Joey in a Blazer.
    Marv, his girlfriend, and her two girls in a Blazer.
    Fred in his Blazer.
    Doug in his Chalet Blazer.
    Eli and friend Dan in a Blazer.
    Allan(me), Grant and wife in my Blazer.
    TJ or was it DJ in his pickup.
    Mike in his Stepside P/U.
    Matt in his Ford(With Chevy parts).
    Keith in his Jeep.
    Sean on his ATV.
    Plus the two guys in the white Jeep and the guy and his kid in the black Jeep that tagged along.
    That is a total of 13 rigs, 22 people, and it was an awesome trip.
