We set up camp with Poison Spyder and BlueRibbon Coalition and some other friends. It was great to hang out with all these peeps and get to know them. I could not believe how many people were out attending the event even though the rain was coming. The clouds covered the sky all day and looked like it was going to let loose any minute.
We were able to join in with them on the JK Owners run Saturday even though we don’t own a JK…. Thanks, what a great group of guys.
Larry of Poison Spyder was a great trail lead for us and showed us around Truckhaven. Here are a few pics from the run.
Here’s another guy trying to do what Larry did…. Not soo much!!!

Me pulling a line but playing conservative with the new top on.
My recovery team stored nicely in the back
Bond was great at clearing the way for the others.
Papa Smurf made everything look easy on the run.
Shad cruising the Carnivore which is like a Cadillac on Steroids
Looks could be deceiving…. Scaler??
These guys were told to meet at the corner of “Robinson Jeep” and “McAlpine”. Seriously that street sign is out there.

At Raffle time the people came out in surprising numbers to try to win a prize. There was more than $100,000 in prizes this year . Of the thousands that showed up, Rhet Votaw of Santa Fe Springs and Steven Diaz of Los Angeles were the lucky winners of an Axial Ready-To-Crawl Crawler. And shortly after the raffle was over the rain started and did not let up.
On Sunday we decided to head out to find an over-look that I had not been too since I was a child. The place is called Fonts Point and it overlooks the badlands. On a clear day the view is endless. The really strange part is that you don’t really drive up hill or anything to get there… it’s like the land just comes to an end and you are 1300 feet above everything else.
