Yankee Hill 5-28-07

What a great time...




Ric's rock(poser rock)






Eric (mayhem) getting tipsy a bit.




Yankee was closed for a while because of the snow. Up ahead, it was a lot worse.








I love Colorado.

The video really didn't do it justice. Watch it frame by frame though.

What a ride on that bumper, thanks Eric. Best time on yankee by far.

That's pretty awesome. It's always nice to have video to prove it happened. Where is the snow at and about how long before you think it'll clear?

I just saw that, I don't remember doing that, that was really stupid. So after the trail I have a broken tail light, muffler hanger and a lot of line-x missing from my skids. About to put in an order for some herculiner

Had fun wheeling with everyone, hope to get some hi res photos from everyone

Hats off to Eric once again *shakes hand*

What the heck did Paul say his name was on here?? His vid is the one that needs to be on here. It's hi-res, hi-framerate, and beautiful.

Someone call him! Immediately!

Oh, and Ric, I kinda was kidding about going back... Take care of what you have to today.

Cory, we plowed it down so much with Paul's truck that all of us could make it through now first attempt.

If there's a hi-res version of that, I want to see it. That was simply amazing. Look like you guys had some fun.

Holy $%#! - that's nuts.



Great picture though; not sure I'd have volunteered for that duty. Looks like Yankee's got a few more weeks of melting to do.

Thanks for sharing.

I'll get the vid up later as I'm working today and tonite and I'm not at home right now. It did come out great.

Ok,I need some pointers as I've yet to upload any vids to a website;so what's the best way? I have the vid on a photobucket account.

Cool. I guess I misread the summary and pics - I thought it became impassable at some point.

On another forum you would use {youtube} The letter/number code{/youtube} But use the ][ instead of the {}
