    It was a good day, even if we did get a little wet, eh.

    If my count is correct we ended up with 7 K5's; INTERCEPTOR, B_to_C, 38377K5, 5280K5, firefighter184, Hossbaby50, & me. WRENCH-HEAD and Jiminycricket rode along as passengers and official photographers.

    Plus there were a few other trucks that came along with us on the trail. I don't think Dan will be taking his truck back to Carnage again anytime soon.

    Running without doors or top is awesome for the trail. For driving home in a torrential downpour? Totally crappy. Holy frozen wet ass Batman!!!

    That was an awesome run guys, we made a great showing and all went home with running vehicles. Guess I'll be ordering an ORD frame patch.:doah:

    Hopefully we didn't scare Brigham away with Carnage as his 1st run. Brigham did a hell of a job for his 1st run ever in his K5, especially considering the circumstances. Good thing he has a sense of humor and gung-ho attitiude.

    It was nice to have 3 new guys join the group even though they have been around the board for some years. Chris, Brigham and Alex, hope you guys can make it to the next trail. It was great having you gentlemen along :thumb:

    I was very impressed with John's K5, outstanding with his recent upgrades. He never had a problem even with a loose steering box. I guess John could say he broke firefighter trainee Nick in with a hard, wet one. :D

    Bo, Harley, Chris, Nick & Scott as always made everything look easy. Course they aren't as pretty as the rest of us. :rolleyes:

    Nick-Nick (our Nick) has surpassed the rest of us with 40". Damn brat!

    Had an awesome time despite the weather. It's going to take a lot more than that to scare me off James, but that comment about John's hard wet one might do it:D Look forward to running some more trails with the crew.

    These are some of James' thousands of pictures that caught my eye:

    Here's those damn 40s allowing that punk Nick to clear and rock everyone else drug over. I really don't think he needs sliders anymore.

    I thought this perspective made one of Nick's 40s look abnormally large. Like he's getting all up in our face about it.

    I also wanted to add that I really enjoyed getting to meet some new people. Especially since the other guys are tired of my jokes, I need a new audience to appreciate my genius. :D :haha:

    I had a good time yesterday. The weather put a little damper on the run but it was still a good time. We will have to run it again when it is dry. I don't think I got to meet all the new guys but I am sure I will in the future and it was good to see the guys I wheeled with last time out there again.

    Towrigs have there pluses and minuses. I got to have a nice warm dry ride to and from the trail but I spent alot of time unloading and loading so I didn't get to meet everyone and BS as much as I would have liked.

    You guys caught some cool pics. Thanks for posting them up.

    Nice pics guys, looks like everyone is making good use of this trail before it closes.

    Bo made those trees that bit my truck look pretty easy to get between.

    (And yes.....I paid james a couple extra cents to take that picture to make my huge tire look even bigger.....just to mock you guys :haha:) I know...I have to be careful, I remember the days when my 35's were the biggest on the trail...

    Hell, I remember the days when rolling on 33s was badass, and 35s were for the extreme!

    The first two are funny, but Bo's hood ornament makes me nervous. What the hell is that?
