    Hey guys, I have posted the Trail report for the First Annual Midwest Spring K5 Thing. The pictures will be clickable real soon, which should show more detail. I will also add a picture free-for-all page which will have many more photos of the event. Enjoy!

    Neil,

    Thanks for a well thought out event and excellent write up. I appreciate you not showing any pictures of me hanging on to any bumpers (when the spotter tests a driver's nads to the limit.) Had a great time just wished my truck was there.
    I should be test driving the new suspension by the end of the week. So far the entire three link setup bolted into place like it was meant to.
    Later,

    Reading so far it sounds great....you forgot to add that the shoes were "smoking" too since they were drying by the fire!! LOL!!!

    What about that Toy that tried to go up the hill after you and blew a tire?

    My thanks to Neil, Steve Watson, ColoradoK5.com and all the gang for making a great time!!

    Now when is next years MWSK5T!?!?? If this year was this good...just wait till us "stockers" get our rigs in gear....I might try "The Hill"....STOCK.

    Neil,
    Our thanks go out to you and Marietta for all your effort required to plan and organize an event such as this. We had a great time. It was cool to wheel with so many people from so many different areas. It was a pleasure to meet everyone. I'm waiting to hear about the planning of 2002 Spring Run. Hey, how about a less organized, less formal run in the fall? Anyone interested?

    Fall run?!?!? Cool idea. now where we gonna have it? Potosi? That would be cool if the leaves were changing colors!!! But ya think we could pick a time when its NOT -15 at night? Maybe some of you people that are up north and I could get something going around Attica?
