Vids from Zookin Y2K?

Can't seem to find it, and I thought there was one.

Anyone got a link to vids from Zookin' Y2K, in particular, the one of me going up Gatekeepr on Ma Bell. Some guy on another board seems to believe that you need a 107" wheel base to make it up or you'll flip.

Thanks in advance.

no, I havent seen it.
My best 4 wheeling moment was on Gatekeeper. Glenn was leading a group of mostly modified Jeeps up there (back when sami's were still a "joke") and my buddy was in a mostly stock sami. My buddy was behind a built Jeep and he pulled Glenn aside and told him "I dont mind the sami, but if he dosent plan to use the go-arounds I dont want to drag him over everything". Glenn said "dont worry about him, he will be fine". Well anyways, as he was making several attempts to get a good line on the Gatekeeper, my buddy (only second time wheeling) asked "can I do that with this?" I said "sure buddy" but was thinking 'no way!'. The jeep guy finally made it to the top. As he was pulling up to make room, my buddy drove up Gatekeeper like he was pulling into a parking space! He pulled up behind the jeep as he was getting out of it and the look of bewilderment on jeep guys face was priceless. I have never seen anyone else go up that as easily, before or since, as my buddy did that day. My buddy has never made it up again after he was more built and KNEW it shouldnt be easy.

actually i was not the vid guy, i just used Jims camera, or (im drawing a blank) the guy from NH, his camera to shoot video. I recently did my own search for Randys roll, since i wanted to earmark that for a friend on why he should have a cage in Moab. Did not find it... I wish i had footage of all you playing on the hills.

The Vid I have ,somewhere, was a vid when a bunch of us went out to Old Florida Road. I looked on izook and it was 2001. Here is the link to the article. Jim

I love those old pics! I remember jumping in that deep mudhole on FL road trail after that pic was taken. Riggin a gatorade bottle as a fuel tank to get back to camp for the night. Good times.

If you like it so much, and we cant find it, could you make another video for us? Im ok with it, as long as you dont hurt yourself or anyone else. I still look at those pictures and cannot believe how little damage you took to the sammi after seeing the video. The video is great, the pictures dont do it justice.
