It will be nice to see you and your family again! I bet the little one is not so tiny by now.
Maybe this time I'll be able to eyeball your 5.2 conversion... :)

I rode with my aunt to the bank before heading out and as we were leaving the parking lot a light pole jumped out in front of her.
I had my head down counting cash and got the full blast of the passenger side air bag. :P
From the exterior appearance things don't look so bad but check out the second photo of the bumper crash bar...

Anyway, this is my excuse for not making it to the meet.
I hope the pizza, company, trail ride and Jeep Awesomeness meets everyone's expectations.

Yeah apparently!

We were bummed we lost you. Dave said you were Behind him but didn't exit with him. We waited for quite a while but never saw you :-/

I think next time we should share phone numbers before the day of the trip.

So that's what happened! Super bummed we misplaced you. Next time phone # exchange at lunch. Also, pre-trip check for craft fairs. Also, I did make it home after encountering typical 40-year old Jeep problems. Like, valve chatter, some stuttering, and gushing ATF. You know, no big deal.


THANK YOU SO MUCH to everyone who came out. I hope you had a good time. Feel free to suggest venues/events for a future day. I like Jeeps and doing activities related to Jeeps.

LOL, we waited for y'a'll too...just at a different "end"

Was it more or less this... http://brnav.com/wordpress/?p=3003

We ended up following that southbound (more or less, with a few side adventures) after we got to Wentworth road via Mosquito (where there was good cell reception and i could look stuff up) We probably just missed each other at some point.

The start was the same but we veered right at some point on something called 11B81. They waypoints I got from alltrails said to go that way. It was fun for sure.

I must say I was very happy to be following an FSJ, let alone 3 and only have dust on my windshield. Based on some of your post I was expecting the usual jeep Luis blow by. It was great riding drag with only the occasional wiff of hot breaks. Good looking rigs, no flying parts or liquids. Great ride.
