Wish I had not had to much on the plate. Gar went down yesterday. He is aways fun to have on a ride. With luck work and kids wont be a factor next time there is a event like this.

Turnout at the Mounds was pretty poor. Maybe 10 or 12 rigs total that I saw.

The only day I could go was Saturday. I was pretty surprised there weren't more rigs at the Mounds, with the combination of the 4 day M.O.R.E., the 41st birthday of the Mounds, and the fact that it hadn't rained in awhile (which meant way less mud ). In fact, it was completely dry on the drive back to the rock courses.

When we arrived at 9am, the parking lot was pretty much empty (till we got there).



But, I guess the positive side is that we had the rock courses all to ourselves.

First time in the Woodlands course





Made it to the end of the course before I get wedged in between a couple small rocks







with the assistance of the hi-lift, I was on my way again. I didn't think it would work, but of course it did. (Good idea Jim)

Thanks Paul (phittie1100) for the pics

Hey I took so long because I had to wear all the dirt and dust off first! stickies make wheeling almost no fun. Nothing can replace the smell of burning rubber!

Yup Tab, you're right. I'm sure you will NEVER have stickies.

I think I have a couple vids to post but haven't pulled the camera out of the jeep yet.

Kristi asked me again today while I was washing the jeep if I was going to get a set. What's with you people? She even asked me that while watching me wash the jeep and sitting in the rhino we just bought.......something's up.

Hey, I'm in the first ever video posted by WhiteRhino

Excellent job Jim. Looking forward to many more in the future. Now you've got the fancy camera AND the knowledge of how to post videos.


I like the comment in the video "He's got stickies too?"
