Northwest Fest photos

Although this was my first attendance of the Northwest Fest, I think the common consensus was that it may go down in history as one of the most eventful. Breakage prone Jeeps (breaks like many had not seen before) and a great spirit from all who were in attendance despite the issues that plagued just about every trail run.
I arrived on Friday evening to Alex (Ba Riedo) plugging his blown tire (lets be honest, you know Alex wasnít doing the work) and Matt (IXNAYXJ) replacing his front axle shaft (well, lets be honest, you know Matt wasnít doing the work). I pondered what may be in store for my own ride at this point but chose to forego the stress and partake in the festivities. Below are only some of the photos that I took. The trail offered little time to get good action shots, the shots came out blurry, or the photos were just damn right inappropriate. And thatís the excuse Iím going with.

Friday evening.





Finally Alex did some work on his own rig.



A manís temporary home is his castle. (Heís got a little Capt. in him)


This is my ice chest, there are many like it, but this one is mine.


Over heaters anonymous.



I didnít over heat, but it was a great time to start the chicken cooking.

Re: Northwest Fest photos

Here is where my tire decided to ďMeow OutĒ after I had been saying how much I love them. Tore the phuck out of the sidewall.


Cool shot of Rainier from the trail.


The not so funny rocks.



Poser!

Making easy work of EVERYTHING.


The Canadian way of breaking stuff. (Poor kid had to drive back to Vancouver at 6am to catch a flight, not a good day for him)







My moment to shine!!!

Re: Northwest Fest photos

I'll add to the collection. Took these with my Canon (the best) XTi with a Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8...I didn't take as many photos as I would have liked to, due to my lack of available memory...but here's some I liked best.


The good example for all...why we dont use blocks. These were 2" aluminum blocks.





Jesse is pro. I can say that because I rode with him all day!





















When Rich desided to blow his tire!

Re: Northwest Fest photos





Jesse and Rich determining what the problem is...it took awhile on this one.





Yup...good times. I have a few photos of the moon rocks, and a Yota that was about to flip on 3 wheels...I'll have to get those up later.

Go to....

Re: Northwest Fest photos

So it wasn't on purpose, but Josh and I got ditched yesterday morning. We rolled out solo and snapped a couple.


Not to be partial, but this one's my favorite.
