    what kind of camera did you use to take all these pics? do you recall all the settings(ƒ, shutter speed, exposure, etc)??

    Had a great time

    The seedin' and hayin' crew certainly had it alot better than the bridge builders, but it was good seeing everyone. Put in a full day's work with a little wheeling with gotlabs in the evening. I'll post my few pics soon as I can download them.

    I had a great time, met a few people, did a LOT of bs'ing. Even though there was a lot of rain, we still managed a Sat evening expedition. Here are a few of my pics, a few tacoma flex shots thrown in for humor.:haha: And a pic of SarasotaUSMC climbing the big rocks!!:D One of the only other ones that turned out decent, Harrison, CB, and Dontoe.

    I have more motivation to finish my Jimmy now, my daughter did not like being in the smallest truck in the group!!:D

    Carolyn and I had a great time too. Working on trail then my sister and her friend drive down from Greensboro and hung out they where down from NY. Carolyn was not feeling to good in the morning so we headed out. Also found out my tent leaks like crazy.Yes Dontoe you are correct on both accounts, Yes James and his family are Cool :D
    and on the way home asked wife to check out vids she got...... well the next thing I hear is " I never hit record button ". :angry1: Other then no pics and leaking tent it was Fun:D

    :D Good meeting everyone :D

    I hooked up with my buddies in the jeeps and xterra last night, and we did a night run on some trail. It was pretty muddy still so that was fun. This morning we woke up and did daniel, and the kodiak rock section of rocky mountain loop. WOW....what a difference the front locker makes. :bow: I easily walked up the right side of the hill climb on daniel, and the rough section of rocky mountain loop. And James.....That ledge is still there (and even taller now) on the second switchback on daniel! We had fun sitting on kodiak rock and watching a group of stock Hummer 3's try to get up rocky mountain loop. Every one had to be winched.:haha: Anyways, we had a great time hitting all the rough spots that uwharrie has to offer...such a great time that I forgot to get the camera out.:doah: Anyways, Daniel is cake and so is rocky mountain.....can we say tellico anyone??
    BTW- I managed to not break anything somehow even though I was on the gas hard as usual. My spotters said I launched up the ledge on daniel, and over that rough left side of kodiak cause I was in it so hard...made both on the first try without having to back up though....

    All right, well I will chime in now as I just got home. Had a great time out there and met alot more members from here and the southeast region. I just wish I didn't have to bum a ride with people to go out and get my wheeling fix. Thanks to Donald for letting me ride along on the trails and another thanks for getting the leaves around the area of my head in the picture to make chopping a little harder.......:wink1: and to Jackson for me taking his seat on the trails. And another thanks to CB and Carolyn for tolerating us (the kids) in the camp site.

    Got up this morning and went down and seen John and his family. Great to sit and visit with friends you haven't seen in a while.

    Boy, you are not kidding when you say "Big" pics. Looks like you guys had a great time. I really have to get up that way sometime for a weekend of camping and trailrunning.
