Just came in from airing up the tires on the jeep. Man a 40" tire takes a long time to go from 4 to 16 psi. We'll be rolling out around 9:00 so we'll see you around 10:00. 1 jeep & 2 bikes.

thanks for sticking around dude... your jeeps looks great.... I handed out awards a little early when people started leaving, so I will FOR SURE do it a little different next year, so I am very sorry about the way things were set up this year... thanks again for the support and I can't wait for next year anyway!!!

Thanks, and thats no problem I just wondered if they were still handed out. Being the first year I knew it wasn't going to be perfect. I think it went pretty well though and look forward to more years to come!

I thought it was funny how most the 4x4s, cars, and motorcycles seperated themselves. Walking around the 4x4s I heard people talking about suspension setups and body armor, then I walk to the car area and heard a guy talking about a nitrous setup. It was cool to bring them all together though. I enjoyed looking at some of the cars just as much as the 4x4 rigs. I especially liked the cherry grand national that looked like it was restored to factory condition.

Oh and who was the guy in the red TJ that was for sale? When he went to leave he stalled crawling over the curb. I got a good laugh out of that!

Thanks Ben for putting on this event with 2 Track Minds Offroad. I had a great time, and so did the family.

I saw a few familiar faces, and saw quite a few new ones. I have to agree with alumitub78 about the seperation of vehicles. It was kind of cool to walk from one section to another and hear the lingo pertaining to the vehicles in that section.

The best part is even though it was segregated the way it was, everyone went to look at everyone else's vehicles or motorcycles. I like the way it was set up. At shows like these, it sometimes causes mixed feelings when you combine vehicles. The arrangement was perfect.

I can't wait 'til next year, I'll be back for sure.

Great job guys.

Good job Ben, the first one's always the hardest.

Your prayers were answered and the weather was great!

The park was a great setup for this kind of event, I didn't realize there was a huge wooden playground area for the kids, great for the family. The way the vehicles parked worked out pretty good, almost like it was planned. Can't wait for a bigger turn out next year. I will definitley help spread the word.

We had a good time. I hope you didn't waste any awards on those stupid shiny cars and bikes. If we're in town next year I would suspect we will be back.

So, what rides got the awards? (no need to give me one, I made one for myself.)

well we gave the best bike to a guy with a tricked out harley (root beer colored dyna) and best truck to ryan mclean (white chevy with 37's) best car went to a two toned peach and silver roadster, best jeep went to Jim with the tricked out LJ, but he left so the award went to the next in line which was greg from aev with the green LG thingy...lol, and then the best over-all award went to John Marshall with the big ford superduty with custom paint... They were all nice rides and I can't WAIT to do it again next year.... possible different location next time, but now there is plenty of time to plan, and we will do just that!!! Thanks again for all of the support guys, and I can't wait for an even bigger event next year!!!
