A good day, the rain, for the most part, waited until the ride home.

The bowling balls were a beating.
Wheeler lake is beautiful...REAL beautiful.


That near flop scared me, everyone is telling me to get my hand in the window...instinct says put out the hand to save the jeep
Me almost flopping


This one got the heart going too...Don.


Jim.


Kamil.



The group at Wheeler lake.


Took a lot of pics...I willget more up later...

Hey Tom, I bet they will. No rock rash, so they won't complain about it.

Resized all the pics I took, with a few blurry messes taken out (might be a few left ). They're still uploading, and will be for another 45 minutes or so, but I put up my gallery script that lets you click through each of them. I'll put up choice ones here once the upload is done.

Methinks Ryan needs to stack about 3 ACOS in the back to account for all the crap he loads in there
