[QUOTE=fsumotorhead;3510374]Here are the first batch of pics from the camera in my vehicle.

All the pics are GPS tagged, I’m not sure if the GPS info comes through once uploaded to Photobucket. If I happened to catch a photo of your rig and you want a high res image, send me a PM and I’ll try my best to get you a copy.

To save time, the pics are exactly as they came off the camera, no editing, cropping, etc.



Setting up camp, I’m glad the weather was awesome and I didn’t freeze in my tent! I had a blast camping next to Pigfat, hopefully we weren’t too rowdy for the rest of the campground.

You guys were the best camping neighbors ever! Thanks for helping me get my rain fly back on in the wee hours :D:D

That pic is a great example of the group I had where everyone pitched in and helped with whatever came our way. It's part of what makes a run like that a great time with lots of campfire stories and poking fun at each other.

After going and getting my jeep...and not having it used... I remembered that I still carry my winch controller and he could have used that. That would have made me 2/2 in supplying Nick with spares for the weekend.

Now I know why that picture looks foreign to me. While you boys were up doing that trail fix us girls were down talking about funny stuff. :D

The water crossing! The only obstacle I was actually a bit worried about.



I had to disconnect and move the airbox up as high as possible, if I wouldn’t have, she would have defiantly sucked a gulp of water.

It was sharp right hand turn on what looked to be a simple turn. It turned out that I cut the turn too quickly and the right rear tire dropped at least 2 1/2 feet into a little creek. The left front tire was entirely off the ground and I was teetering on two wheels. In no uncertain terms 'mom' let me know she was NOT happy being on the low side.

This really needs the viewpoint of trail level, not from the top of the beaver dam. The beaver dam was ABOVE the roofline of the vehicles. It was kinda spooky looking when you drove the trail and looked right over the pond. The water line was at eye level, then it was above your head.

This is a really cool set of rocks on the right hand side of the trail. We didn't spend much time there clearing it out but John and Cory took it as a 10 minute 'side trip' and then came back to the trail 50 feet further up the main trail.

That's really cool! Kim drove the rock garden at the end of Backdoor. It was almost midnight so I'm not sure anyone actually has 'proof' that she did it!

However, that is a GREAT idea which I see frequently done at events across the country. Usually called 'Powder Puff Day'. The ladies drive the entire day.
