Ok I moved my hotel reservations to Yakima we don't do the camping thing anymore. How many folks do you plan on having? I'm trying to figure out something for the potluck.
I am not sure what the turnout will be now since we moved he event with short notice. It still looks like 15 or more families are in. I talked to a lot of people today at the Jim Sprick Park Clean-up that say they want to come. Most of these Meet & Greets have more people that show up than the list on line.

Eastern Washington Off Road Meet & Greet
1 PM Saturday April 28th, 2012 at the Eastern Washington Adventures Club House
RBXj & Barb, Mike H. & Anders and myself all met up to meet & visit with some of our dry side neighbors at the Eastern Washington Adventures clubhouse in Selah yesterday.
Rigs, lots of rigs to look at & drool over.
A d35 on 38's. Who said it can't be done? The owner, Coby ( or Corey?...sorry, I'm hopeless when it comes to names...) continues to test his luck by buying 50 raffle tickets.
Of course the salesmanship of the mini-sales persons at the event had a little something to do with it, eh? Rotflmao The object of his desire?
A piece of art that unfortunately was won by Mr. JeepScum! Ain't that a daisey?
Then there was the ramp...
Mike was among the first up.
Evidently there's a formula of measure to determine a rigs articulating prowess. However, I haven't got a clue what it is. Nonetheless the parade of rigs that humped the ramp was fun to watch. And, I could get my ragged ole self under them when they were on the ramp to get a really good look at the handy work that lived under there.
Radius arm set up?
I thought I had more pictures of the various rigs on the ramp, but I must have been talking story with some one or feeding my face instead...
We followed CEG's/Clay's directions for a rubble road ride home!
Didn't take long before we decided to air down a bit. That rubble raod had a tendency to beat the begeers out of our Jeeps with 30lbs +/- on all four corners, so we dropped to 13 - 15 to soften the ride...
MCE/Flatty Fenders G1 on the left and G2 on the right...
Anders could be found with a camera around his neck!
It was a great day. And, RBXJ whipped up some of his famous bar-b-q ribs, too. Man was that good eatin'...
Thanks a million to CEG & the rest for an outstanding day!
The ride back was great. From N Wenas Rd, turned right on Sheep Company Rd, which turns into Old Durr Rd, when Anders tells me that he has been down Durr Rd on the Ellensburg side many times. He had not traveled the whole road though. I do agree with John, once we aired down a bit, the ride was better.
Here are some of the pictures he took along the way. Nice to have my official photog with me, otherwise I don't get so many pictures, plus it was great to get some guy time!
We aired up when we hit pavement, stopped off at a ATM in Ellensburg to give Anders some grocery money, had burgers with John and Anders at Wing Centeral, dropped off Anders at his dorm and headed home.
After a day in the sun and warmth we barely crested the Summit and we were greeted with a little rain, just to reminded us that we are wet siders.
A great day, thanks again.
Good times. Thanks Ceg, family and all of the Eastern Washington folks for the hospitality. You all made us feel right at home.
Beautiful day to spend time with some old friends and meet some new ones. Hope we can all share some trails this summer.
