My idea of a perfect vacation is a road trip through beautiful country. To make it really fun, all that's needed is a modified vehicle, a few close friends, and some serious off-roading. Cole Quinnell - Editor, 4WOR, Dec 99

Re: Thank you!!!

Your thanks is appreciated, but in the big scheme of things it's us who owe you one! You put a lot of your time on the line to make this event what it was (amazing!).
That you were able to do so much, still make trails, and host campfire fun afterwards is a testament to your dedication. That speaks volumes.
Thank YOU!

Re: Thank you!!!

A big thank you for you Mac for dedicating so much time into this event.. Being my first time out there, I had an absolute blast..

Huge shout out to everyone on Dome Plateau who gave me a hand and tools for my dang upper control arm issue.. Sorry for the long hold up out there.. I believe it was Mark in the gold xj, thanks for volunteering to get me out and back to town..

Another thanks for everyone who voted for my cleanest modded xj.. I appreciate it..

I will definitely be at the next one in 5!

Re: Thank you!!!

Thank you to the SEC for the spill kits. I know Cottontail put a bunch of effort into making sure those got done and delivered.

And I saw one of them in use on Dome Plateaum making sure that an XJ that wasn't yet out of oil didn't leave its mark on the trail.

Re: Thank you!!!

TBH I have been putting this off for too long. I just know I will miss someone. I had the most epic vacation of my life. So on to the long list of gratitude:

Mac: for putting this thing together, talking me into it, and coaching me through the mountains to get there

Brian and Joyce: for helping Mac coax me on and driving the truck off the

MWC: for convoying out with me, and partying on the way.

KOA: for welcoming me and steering me to a camp site.

Rob: for scaring me straight on my first day. Wow Moab Rim is scary as a

Chasdb: for leading Hells Revenge on Tuesday. I had a blast and made hells gate( so no need to buy a Kia)

Rewster: for putting together an awesome Top of The World run on Wednesday

EricsXj: for a great run in the rain on Fins and Things on Thursday

Chedisme: for leading Poison Spider Mesa on Friday.

Noah Bricker: (I believe) for leading us out of PSM. I really wanna thank anyone that was involved in winching me back on my wheels this day.

Any one that ran La Sal Pass: I had a great time. **** the snow(Lol). Thanks to all who helped me back on the trailer.

Greg: for hauling my drunk azz to the dinner and back. And was a great neighbor.

I can not thank any one I met enough. If I drank a beer of yours, shared your fire, or just said hi to you, I really am thankful for your time and dedication.

Heres to partying with old friends and meeting new ones. is one cool club.

Re: Thank you!!!

Thank you to one and all, and all the hard work that went into making this a great event! I had a great time! We didn't get there til Thursday afternoon, and I still feel like we got a week's worth of fun out of it.

And KOA was great, IMHO!!
