back from SoR - now with pics

Just got back from Suzuki on the Rocks. The run was a blast. Nothing like pounding yourself on the rocks for a few days.

There was parts broken, body panels dented, and bears encountered. I didn't break any parts myself, but did put a good sized dent into the passenger rocker panel and have a bear try to eat my zuk.

I will have pictures on my website once I get them downloaded.

Re: back from SoR

Actually, I'm not sure just how many people were there. Probably around 40 zuks and maybe 100 people?

Re: back from SoR - now with pics

I have the pictures from the Rubicon this past weekend on my website. The direct link to the pictures is http://members.home.net/mmartinez/index.htm

If anyone is interested in the full-sized picture, send me an email to [email protected] with the filename(s) and I will email the full-sized image (1600x1200).

Re: back from SoR - now with pics

If either you or him want, I have the original pics on my computer at home. They are 1600x1200 and 700k each. I could send them out by email. I ended up taking so many pictures I had to downsize them quite a bit to get under my 10mb limit.

Re: back from SoR - now with pics

Email us any pics you have Mark. Good to meet you also (and all the other first-timers too).

And thanks for distracting the bear away from our pile of 80 or so hamburgers. Could have been ugly there....

Mark

It was great to meet you...

I was very impressed with the way your Zuk got around...Big Sluice is no cakewalk!

Are you sure that was a Bear? I know Chance was camped close to you...lol He forgets his table manners some times..

Great pix...can't wait to wheel with you again.

Re: back from SoR - now with pics

I had a great time there and really enjoyed meeting all the new faces and reacquainting with old friends. I made it through without any catastrophic breakage:

1 big dent in my front fender
1 smashed marker light
1 bent YJ spring (need a traction bar)
2 broken U-joints (really need a traction bar)
1 bent driveshaft flange yoke (really, really need a traction bar)

Thankfully, I didn't explode the 4.16 t-case I borrowed from Paul Easley while my GRS2 is being repaired by Petroworks. And the Yukon 4.57's proved stronger than my rear driveshaft and spring, both of which were damaged from my 1-wheel wheelie at the base of Cadillac Hill.

I can't wait for next year!
