I got my registration in early for this years Jolly Jeepers Back To Basics Run.
It was my second year going, and despite a teeder-todder weather forecast (and last years torrential downpour the entire time) - I went in with high hopes, and ready to have a good time.
And well, I figured I'd share a bit of what little pics I took this last weekend.
We camped out at a chunk of land adjacent to a X-mas tree farm. And for those of us who don't own trailers/motor-homes, it was pretty much set-up-a-site-where-ever-you-want type of thing. (same every year)
Some members of the Forestry Service met up with my group Sat morning, and the owner/photographer of Double Black Diamond Off Road Magazine was there as well to snap some pics for us.
(13 rigs in my group the first day)
Trail order for the day was - Powerline, University Firepower, Firebreak 5, Saddle-Up, Airplane Hill, Hogsback, and I think Can Opener. (cant remember if we actually did that one or not)
I didnt take pics of every rig on every trail, and I dont think you guys want to see every other rig that I DID take pics of, so I'll keep it to the unique, well modified, or strictly XJ.
My buddies Metal Cloak clad TJ, and a stretched and heavily modified CJ that we ran with last year.
Trail conditions were perfect. Roads were a little dusty, but the trails were just barely moist. This is the first time in 2 years that I was able to wheel on dry terrain.
We XJ's TRIED to stick together throughout the day:
(the yota in the background somehow snuck into our group at some point)
It was the maiden voyage for this JK
Decided to post up on a rock for lunch:
The CJ Played in the rocks during lunch, good times!
Our group leader even got his LJ up into the rock for a little session:
Found this vista, and just had to stop for a photo op - this is my new favorite pic:
