    So I finally made it home around 3 p.m. today! Great to meet everyone, this truly is a cool group to 'wheel with. For those of you who couldn't come: you've missed a great experience, better mark your calendars now for next year.

    Here's a quick rundown of my BB'03 experience:

    Trails for the Lowrider: Elephant Hill - Lower Helldorado - Pritchett Canyon (YESS!!!) - Hell's Revenge - Fins'n Things / Play spots on Hell's Revenge. Rockpile on Pritchett proved too much, managed to drive everything else, with an insurance strap on Rocker Knocker. Also, finally drove Tipover challenge on Monday.

    Again, many thanks to the hardcore guys for letting me tag along and helping me drive Lower Hell and Pritchett! Couldn't have done it without the great spotting by Stephen Watson, Dave Cowley, Dirk Phillips, and many others. Maybe one of these days I will learn the art of the "bump". It certainly was a classroom lesson to watch the ORD crew on the trails. Note to all who like the body on their trucks: it can be frustrating to drive behind a buggy, particularly when they carry an ORD sticker....

    Carnage: a dent in the right rear chrome wheel center, and I stood the Lowrider on the bumper a couple of times.

    So much for now, details to follow, I've got like 18 rolls of film to develop, but now I need a shower....

    I will certainly try to make it for Easter. Great seeing all of you, and good to see you aboard on CK5, Tony.

    Doug, now that I also know where that Freightliner dealership is in GJ, I should be able to look you up on my next trip!

    Mr. Bill, I've got the Lowrider plate, you'll have to come up with something different! /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    Dave, leaving Moab is difficult, I was wondering during the whole day Monday what you really had in mind when you talked about leaving 'early'.... /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    You all keep the shiny side up, until next time, michael /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
