I just got back from the Rubithon. An amazing event. I just had no idea.

Look for a full writeup on the main page of Pirate tomorrow. I have tons of photos uploading.

It was great to meet all of my Pirate friends in person and I had the EXTRA special treat of a guided tour from Dog Walker today as we ran the trail back to Loon Lake today.

I talked to Tom on Sat when he was heading to the box I was hoping you were going up with him. I was hoping to get the chance to meet you. We ended up camping at Buck and not going into the Springs, I headed out early from Buck this morning heading back toward Loon. Glad you had a good trip, its a great place to camp and wheel.:D

I can't believe you all are letting this comment slip by without making BK spill the beans...

I just want to say, right here, right now, the Bill is just one awesome guy. Thanks for all you and your family do Bill!

So who won the vintage TLCA magnet? I carried that sucker a long time before it ended up home on the Rubicon. I was pretty excited to run it on my rig last year when I was at Rubithon. Maybe next year I'll make it back in the project truck?

That is my better side for sure....

Ross Woody is a cooking machine if you guys did not already know it. Amazing food.

BK has no windshield because he rolled his 55 while towing a JEEP off the trail......:homer:

The full story is being worked my Lance right now. I will post a link ASAP.

Wow...Can't wait to here the story. Sounds like all made it safe..that is most important. A [email protected]#P braking down really doesn't surprise me :)laughing: @ Clint). What an awesome run! Cheers to the Crew Bill, Mike, Dale, Glen, Clint(even tho you didn't wear an orange shirt I still consider you "crew" you always are a huge help...oh and you laugh at all our jokes! (we have missed you guys the past few years and I won't let that happen again, you are all really good people) and everyone in the group. It was a pleasure meeting new faces and hope to see you all again real soon. I elect Cita to be the Thursday Run's personal cook! I will put in my order for next time :D. We had a blast this year volunteering for the cooking crew and will continue to do so in the future. SPAM Bros. kick ass at stirring chili! See yall and thanks again! Oh hey Clint..Sorry for saying "you suck"at the raffle....I actually think it was Vince throwing off the balance :mad3:
