To everyone who joined in,

Thank You to all the new jeepers and members who came to our run. It was an awesome out come and we all did very well on the trails. I was very impressed with all of you and we had great team work esp with all the recovery we had to do. All of us got along very well and I do hope that all of the new jeepers who joined in will join us on our future runs, events and hopefully join our club with no pressure involved.

I wanted to give a few of you a formal Thank You and GoodBye when you left but, I knew some of you had to leave and get home. So, Sorry I could not give you a formal Thank You and GoodBye but, I do Thank You for joining in and hope you had a great time with us. And, Hope to see you again.

All in all... It was an awesome time and a great start for our season for 2008
We'll have lots more great times this year and it will get better and better though out our future years for our club. All it takes to make this club is to be respectful, loyal, friendly and have passion for offroading and love your jeep. If you do that and feel that way...This will make our club awesome and lots will join in. Let's keep this passion and hobby going.

Thanks again for this great out come we had & everyone was awesome!


Michael
Club President

Bama WJ,

Hi and thanks for taking them pictures. I want to say Sorry that I didn't know that was you with that group of other jeepers on the creek. I thought you were just jeepers and needed help so, our club and group helped out in the recovery of that one XJ that was stuck in the water. It would have been nice if ya tagged along with us with your friends. But, possibly next
time we can meet up and join us on some of our jeep runs. And, you are welcome to bring your other jeep friends to join in and have a blast with us.

Thanks again and hope to see you sometime again,
Michael
Club President

You are welcome to send those pictures in my email at:

Hi Phil,

I like to say Thank You for joining in and it was nice to have met you.
You did a great job with your week old Rubi and you sure are a brave one to take that out so quickly and not worry so much about any damages.
I hope you had a blast with us and hope to see you sometime again and wheel with our club. After the 2nd run you are able to join our club if you wish. Oh about the pictures, this run I did not take any pictures because, I wanted to watch all of you and help everyone out. I wanted to make sure that everyone was taken cared of. There were quite a few people that were taking pictures so, soon you will see a whole bunch on here and I am sure they will be cool shots of all of us. Keep a look out because Jeffro will be posting pictures here and hopefully others. I just like to say, Thanks again for joining in and see you soon.

Thank You,
Michael
Club President

wellll, I made it through despite having the basic traction system on my WK. I havea couple scars and some scary experiences but it made my day!! Afterall, I brought out my newly outfitted WK to see how it performed, the rear drive shaft could REALLY use some protection as well as the rear quarter panels. Dumb-arse me forgot to air down through 3/4 of the days events...I really put 'er through the paces and she came out just fine. Really could have used the V8s' power and traction-that's all I really need addressed other than a little more armor. Pictures to follow tonight...

I had a great time and wanted to thank all of you for your help and knowledge. Had a great time and cannot wait to go out again. I'd like to get skid plates and the rock rails to hopefully make me feel a little safer. Only suffered a minor scrap that I think I can buff out...

here are some pics http://picasaweb.google.com/mrfWKjeep/EasterAtBadlands

I posted a trail report, and I have a bunch more photos on my website, if you have some free time. I'm hoping someone has some shots of me.

I was sweating for you when you were sandwiched between those trees. Thats too pretty of a Jeep to get pinstriped just yet.

We all made it out without too much damage.

Hey Michael,

Thanks for the kind intro and smooth first trip. My friend and I had a great time, and you guys can definitely expect us to be back with you next month. As for the Rubi, no damage was found, but the brakes are already broken in, as they were super squishy on the way home.

Once again, thanks to all the guys who made this first wheelin trip smooth and comfortable,

Phil
