    Had a great time wheelin with the boys.
    I never had a co-pilot so I didn't get the greatest pictures but some of
    them are pretty good. You can check them out on my Webshots account
    at - http://community.webshots.com/user/k5stormtrooper-date
    (make sure you choose the newest albums to view).
    I hope some others will post their pictures on here too so I can see any
    ones taken of my truck. Enjoy! (4 albums to view/200 pic.s)
    Here's one for fun- :D

    Glad you stayed the extra day! You finally conquered Pritchett!!!!!! You got some smokin shots of my rig too..... I think I want to blow some up for art. Can you burn me a disk? Oh yaeh and you won the race out I just didn't think that we were being smoked!And I even hit 70mph. By the looks of my frame I would hate to see yours!! I broke my weld on brace cleanly in 5 places, the frame don't look good either I will let you know when I grind the brace off to assess the carnage.

    Sure I can burn you a disk. I didn't take them in High Res this time though.
    I didn't want to mess with resizing & stuff.
    If you want, I can just e-mail you a few at a time?
    :thinking: I'll need to look at my frame but I've done this many times before without a problem.
    Who says you can only rock crawl these trucks?
    I'm not sure how fast I was on the Baja out of there but I saw my speedo hit 80+ once or twice.
    Just wait until I get that front axle moved so I can jump the truck again! :haha:.
    I hope someone got a couple action shots of my truck.
    I can't wait to see the "BLING" shot hehe... :D
    "Don't mess with Mr. T" or should I say "Mr. S"

    Always do! I wish somemore of the "Colorado Crew" made it.
    Atleast I got to wheel with some of the Top rigs.
    He's a pic of "MoneyPit" very, very sweet K5 -

    I imagine Scott, Nick, Bo, and Harley are all up to the task. They are pretty well built this year. Gonna be another year or two before I'm ready.

    That line feels so wrong!!! Thats why its so right!!! The only view is the one from the top!!!! Lots of people seemed amazed I was taking my rig on this trail, but if you know the lines and trail then why not?? I only got a scratch on the rear bumper and used some heavy throttle by my choice. Fun was had by all! Maybe next year FOX might wheel his!!!! I think this year he is putting it in the roadster show........

    Not sure who was spotting you but you were on it when I got down from my truck thought you were giving us a show.....But at least my truck was holding you on your wheels, does that count for something???:D

    Of course it does!! THANK YOU!
    I just wish I would have been at the top instead of sitting sideways. I should just install an cheat-o-matic, I've been trying to grow a third foot but it's just not working out :haha:.
    Atleast it's usually a show when I go.

    You made it look easy, even thought it's not at all.

    Get a hand throttle and mount it to your shifter. Edd has one on his if you need a pic of it I am sure he will send you one. Let me know.

    Yeah, Dirks truck looks awesome. I'll let him tell you about it if he wants.
    Not a good story..... the truck is the good story.
    As for album #3, Dude! You've been on that trail. It's Gold Bar. It just look different if your looking at Mini Wally's line on double whammy because he was taking a new line he had never done. It was cool. Dirk tried it but it didn't work out for him.
    I really hope you can make it out there one day.
    We have nothing to do with the actual EJS except steal photographers that would rather run with the full size boys :rolleyes: .
    The guys I wheeled with are IMO, the best of the best.
    White Knight was there too but I didn't get a chance to see them or the rig.
    As for the dunes, they are on the right on the way into "Behind the Rocks" / Backside or outlet of Pritchett. You've been their too or near.
    .
    Keep checking back as the other guys will have some other cool pic's too and I hope they post them here.
