Thanks Mike, it was great hanging with you. We need to hang out when I am more on my game.

The Xterra did not roll there and it was only my last attempt that got out of whack a little. Other than that, I had the rear hammering a ledge when the front was climbing and it was straight ahead.

We should have some good Moab pics for the calendar, but I am not sure we should encourage Brent's butt.

Straight, get it?

Actually, the name we coined for them on the trip was "Yoka-homos."

My butt hurts...

Well, the wife and I have finally returned home after our road trip covering over 5300 miles between 24 Sep and 14 Oct. It was a long trip but well worth it. I wanted to thank Jeff Bathke for organizing the event and for everybody that helped him work out the details.

It was great to see a lot of the people I met last year and to meet some new ones. My wife had a great time but I attribute that to her being able to hangout with Erika (Steve S.), Michelle (Abq. Jim), Nicole (Greg) and Heather (Brent) during "Ladies Night" and on the trail. With them around, she didn't mind the fact we were on the trail later than we planned.

I picked up alot of great tips and experience on this trip. I just wish I lived a bit closer so I wouldn't have been so worried about breaking stuff on the truck and getting home. I had a couple of minor issues on the way back but nothing that kept me from fixing on the highway and continuing on.

My biggest disappointment is the number of wheeling pictures my wife took. She took 3 times more pics of the scenery than she did of me, or anybody else, doing anything in our trucks. Is there a compilation disk being created like last year's CO4RJ DVD?

Yes, e-mail or U.S. Mail your pics to me. Check the Yahoo Group. I have lots of pics of you.

brent: "sir spotter" and a helluva guy. thanx for watching my back and look forward to being introduced to the g-spot.


I have for some reason become the spotter for these trips (maybee because after I spot Heather through something she just takes off following Hunt ). I have no complaints though, It has been fun seeing people improve on thier driving skills over the years. Plus it gives me a reason to hang with the Yota crew- they may kick me out soon if I don't have a "job".

Bruce- the Heather mooning instead of me is not called for and beyond the limits of good taste (plus I was working out months to get that kind of toning) - kind of like the quote from Jim that she keeps laughing about when we were winching up the ledge- "Nice job bringing back the rope, next time do it topless".

Steve, I really like the new graphics on the side of your rig, they didn't show up too clearly in your pic, so I "enhanced the contrast a bit...

Hello!
I'm with a show on the Travel Channel called 'Travel Gear.' Our show features the latest and greatest gear for travel and outdoor adventure activities. Here's a link to our show:

We're working on a 4x4 Jamboree segment where we plan to tag along on heep Jamboree. However, we want to include other vehicles besides heeps in our story! Would you happen to have any video available of some off-roading Toyota Land Cruisers in action? perhaps from the recent Cruise Moab?

If not, who would you suggest I contact who might have footage? Our deadline is Nov 12...

Thank you so much for your help and have a great day!
Lori.

I have video, but being Hi8, it's not braodcast quality. Bruce might have some, though, because I'm sure he's digital, and he was using a tripod.
