Great big thanks to Dale for organazing it again this year, and to Tom and Hi-Lift for sponsoring the event and supplying the jack for the raffle. I agree with Tom that is was probably the best Bash yet.
It was great to see all my old friends again and meet and wheel with Jarrett and Chad. Those guys were super impressive. I thought that being flatlanders they might be intimidated by the climbs and rocks, but they got right into the flow without missing a beat.
After breakling my locker Friday I spent Saturday riding with Aaron, Thanks EVER so much! What a great day! I thought that riding shotgun might be a dull event but, oddly enough, it was a lot of fun and exciting at times.
Since my Jeep was broken I had to find seats for my brother Denis, and my college roomie Jim. Fortunately Dan and Toby had empty seats and drug them around all day. Thanks a bunch, Guys! You saved my bacon!
I didn't take many pictures since I was driving alone Friday and afraid of what might happen to my camera if taken along in Crazy Eddie. Which probably was a well-founded concern - my rain pants are covered with muck, even though they spent the day in Eddie's "dry" box and I never put them on!
These are the best.
This is Toby at my place Thursday morning. Ready to hit the road!

By brother and Dan. My brother is the old one. With white hair. And a beard. On the left.
Aaron and me. What a great guy he is!
