Hey everyone!! It was weird driving home not following 20 other vehicles!! I had a BLAST and thanks to Kristian and Jason for planning it! It was awesome to get to know everyone, but I now have to figure out who's who from their user name since I didn't go on here before the trip, so I only know first names
It's going to take me a while to sort through my pictures because my main computer is down for the count but I can at least get through everyone else's!
Mark--great job on the ring!! I bet Jaeme was excited to get home!
I too would like to know what Joe & Yooper use to enhance those pics.
Here are a few of my favorites from the trip.
Mike & Teddie heading up the Cliffs trail we did on Tuesday with Kristian.
The view from the top.
A couple of old wooden headstones in the Cliffs Cemetery. Creepy! Several of the trees were squeeky here.
Leaving High Rock Bay camp Weds. AM.
Mike flexxing his FJ on Mt. Houghton.
Jason washing his JK heading out to the Gay beach.
That is it from the first bunch I loaded up.
Missing the outdoors : (
Awesome shots so far everyone! I expected some impressive shots from the previous work I had seen from some of you, but wow, just wow! Here is my first batch, this is going to take a few posts but I will post up my favorites, and give a link at the end to an album with more.....
All packed and pretty, ready to go, didn't quite look this clean at the end....

After some heavy rains Wednesday night, Thursday's trails were a bit sloppy. Jason working his way up a slippery and steep climb that we were worried vehicles may have trouble on. It was great to see all of them make it up and through with no real issues.
Ben near the top
Mike and Teddi getting it done
Ian after we reminded him to try using 4wd..
Pad's Range Rover making it look easy.
Off to bed, I'll upload pictures from the last half of the trip tomorrow. Sleeping in my bed tonight is going to be sooo nice. We got the HD vid uploaded this evening and will be working on editing it. There is a LOT of footage on there.
Great pictures everybody. I think we all had a blast just trying to capture the varying terrain, cool rigs (and people) and spectacular scenery. Good times.
