Snorkel city. 330 FJ's! I couldn't even imagine that many FSJ's in the same place.

330 is a lot.

If there was that many FSJ's, Ouray would need to really stock up on thngs like oil, coolant, gasoline, and small parts :P

It will be interesting to see where their numbers are in 30+ years. And if they're still doing the event for all the old folks who fondly remember them.

Last couple of years, 4Runner TuRD Pros have out numbered the actual cruisers. Fun to watch them completely pack up their roof tents every day just to come back and set it all back up in the same spot later.

Yup. I've been thinking about doing expedition camping but with a trailer that has a roof tent on it so I can leave it there while I do some day trip excursions.

The roof tents on the vehicle are nice if you are camping in a different place each night. otherwise a trailer is definitely more convenient.

I am bringing my 4runner so maybe I can infiltrate their ranks, gather Intel, and disrupt from within...

That made me laugh. Extra points if you can steal one of the 'trail leader' magnets. :D

Naw, it was just a joke. Stealing is wrong. But perhaps if we can get the pink JEEP license plate attached. :)

But moving FJ trail signs is perfectly legit. :roll:
