We had good time, it was nice seeing everyone again and meeting so new people.
We had to leave before dinner too.
I will post up some pics once I see a picture thread.

Just got home....Had a great time as well. Awsome group of people, It is very nice seeing people do what you all have done for this family...very respectful. I hope the money raised can make a difference for them, I am sure it will. I never met Steve but best wishes to his family and all of his great friends. Hope to see more of you guys (and girls) in the future.

I just Got home, The wife and I had an awesome time on our 1st trail ride. Thanks to everyone who was there, and who helped with the event. We hope to make more trail rides and get out there more.

I also got some good videos from the mud portion... will get those on here soon, or if you want, go to Youtube, and search 10-3-10 Memorial Trail Ride, there will be a total of 11 videos, Keep in mind I was working with a knock off of the flip video camera.

The wife took a lot pics, and I will try and get those on here sometime this week.

Thanks again!

I must say that Meg and I are very grateful for the opportunity we got to meet ALL OF YOU. I know that this event was up in the air for us, but waking up at 8am this morning to get there in enough time was WORTH IT.

We've both taken a lot away from the event and have made a whole new group of friends. All she could do was talk about when she gets a Jeep and how she'd love to learn with a group such as yourselves.

I thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking us in today and becoming more than friends, but family. And for helping out a Wheelers Family who needed it. I can only hope, that if I'm taken from this world early, people will remember me for everything that I loved to do. As Pat said, "Wheelers are the finest people you'll ever meet." He couldn't have been more correct. I can't wait to wheel with you all again! God Bless!

I just got home, long drive and it was pretty hairy. I have almost no oil pressure!

Anyway I had a great time, and would love to come up and wheel again the future. It was nice to meet everyone finally.

One a side note, I think I left my glasses at the table or maybe they fell out on the grass. If anyone finds them, please let me know!

What a awesome turn out today. 38 rigs numbered and out on the trail. and close to 100 people. Thanks to all that showed, it was awesome.
Glad to see many people that i've wheeled with before, and met several different people i've talk with on here, and finally good to meet you, and new people all together. Thank you to all, had a great time and i know it met a lot and amazed Steve's folks. thanks for the support and good time guys and gals.
major trail damage was 'freak' and some damaged axle joints and shaft ears on pass side. A few stucks along the way as well, but a good overall run.
first guy to be stuck, was some goofy guy that ended up holding us up all day, had to send that guy home but he ran out of gas 5 miles from the house so had to rescue him, apparently, but a big thanks for the guy with the mobile gas station. ;) thanks Dennis and Lisa. good to ride with you again.

Also lets remember to fill out those tailgate reports. if some one can please post the link as cant get it from my phone. Remember it helps us show having trails open help stimulate the economy as we spend money as we run the trails.
look forward to the pics.!!

well, I would have to say the best quotes that I heard while I was out there were. MINI after getting through the mud hole: EAT SHIT RETARD! lmao!. Or after Nick broke his front axle, I can't remember who said it: He broke his axle.... AGAIN! Lmao. I got a bunch of video and pics I'll have to post up tomorrow morning when I get back home.

It was a great day. Nice turn out with good people. Sorry I couldn't make the whole trip but I had a b-day party to get to.

Nice meeting some new people and seeing some old friends.

Thanks for putting this together. It was a lot of fun!
