hate to change the mood----- but-------


now that i sit here and think a bit------







when it is ALL SAID AND DONE-- what do we have ----memories---

every day i think of the times and things i did with my Dad and Family----

what do we leave our kids and the future kids to come--- memories.
i think that IS the MEANING OF LIFE--- to build memories !

sit in a hut- or mansion--- what does it matter ?!--- you ARE the sum total of your experiences and MEMOIRES--
everything CAN be taken from you--- except your memories !
Health and wealth are just fleeting things---- but memories will last FOREVER !

YOU people are makeing memories for your children and the generations to come--- "My Dad was in the first of the KOH races-- way back when they started " !!!

My Dad has long passed---- but he still lives in my memories---- as YOU will live in the memories of those close to you --- FOREVER

i have a wall full of trophys that my sonS and Family have gathered over the years--- and what is it ?? a wall of MEMORIES !
The KOH experience is something i and my family will remember FOREVER--

and due in large part to all of YOU --- The KOH FAMILY


thank you

Actually,given the fact that Jeff and Dave had this designed as a media event and really didn't want spectators,this was what they were hoping for.It was a different mindset for the first year.When they saw what happened after the video came out,they then realized that they were going to have to start dealing with much larger crowds.

Almost everybody in that picture is connected with a team,a volunteer or media.I was standing just behind Nick at the left

Cody Knoll looks like he was about 12 in that picture.

I noticed there were different video producers for each of the first 3 years. That guy who started in '10 has done a better video every year, and Hammerking seems to have stuck with him. His editing really captures the feeling of KOH and Ultra4.





Thanks for the perspective, Krusty.

This was our little corner of KOH. I picked the spot because it was after the bottom of Aftershock and the cars had to make a 90* turn, and I figured they have to slow down anyway...well some of them did.

actually from what I remember both dave and jeff told their sons "sure, go ahead" thinking that there was no way they would do anything worth while.

it wasn't until the next morning they realized what they got themselves into. cody and bailey stayed up for quite some time digging that out. and it caught more than one competitor by surprise.

FWIW, I missed the 08 event by 2 days because of when I had to report to my new command in WA. 09 I was on deployment in the far west pacific, but got to follow on-line because of coverage right here on pirate. 10, 11, and now 12 I have worked.

I wish Krusty. but unfortunately she married another one of us "ghey sailors" and moved off to Italy last summer.

She is really bummed she hasn't been out to the desert in so long. She does send her best wishes though (every time I go out she makes sure to remind me to say hi to you especially) and would be there if she could.

I'm wondering which of the Rea kids is lusting the Krumore ding dong more

I missed '08 by days, but followed online and have seen the famed tool box in person. It is in use (as it should be) at Campbell Ent.
I was here as team member for Desertfab (and Campbell, and who ever was near us in the pits) for 09, 10, and 11.
Thanks to some really crappy luck this past 15 months, I will miss 12 in person, but will certainly be _looking_ busy at work. And that sucks harder than RedneckRea on swabbies with $5 in port!
