Talking Northwest Fest Pictures

It's 1:55 in the morning and I have just returned from an EXCITING and highly successful day of wheeling with an AWESOME group! As of 9:00 pm there were 19 rigs and LOTS of happy faces (ok there's one CJ owner that wasn't completely happy...more on that later).

There's STILL TIME!! If you leave Seattle area by 6:00 am you can make it in time for the Sunday Morning Driver's meeting. EVEN IF YOU DON'T have a rig, show up! I'm sure SOMEONE has an open seat! CB Channel 2



I will post more pics tomorrow, I'm pooped!.

Re: NWFest UPDATE - More photos

My son and I arrived at Camp at about 8:30. I almost called our trip off as I have a summer cold and was running a low grade fever. I'm sure glad we went.

For those that didn't go, there were plenty of right seats that you could have gone along and plenty for the passengers to do.

What a great bunch of people we have here in the NW Chapter. I can hardly wait for the Fall event! Pat, my son (and passenger) had a blast and really enjoyed everyone's company. He's hooked and wants to get an older XJ or even an MJ.

I hope to see some more of someone else's photos. Mine came out okay but it's extremely difficult to stop and take pictures when your pushed to get through this long run.

I'm still sick and am going to lay down. Here's just a teaser of some of the fun we had, right LadyWolf?

Stuck and it won't start!





GI John to the rescue!



Just a LITTLE more...


Woohoo!


(Aw MAN! Now it won't start!) Pat's going to help her get down the hill to a flat area and see if we can get it started again. By this time, LadyWolf had been fighting a power steering issue - well, NO power steering to be exact. Pat stepped in to give her arms a much needed break.
--SEE?? Passengers DO have something to do!!!


We got her down to a flat area and found one of the coil wires off (probably from the impact - that was a HARD hit on the tree!).

Pat stayed with Chris (Kris? Kristen? sorry - I didn't ask about spelling) for the remainder of the trail to help steer. They got hung up on a log later and ran out of gas too.


Want to buy a used CJ? I think she wants to get an XJ now.

Re: NWFest UPDATE!!

As Sniggs said, it was a totally awsome trip. Only problem from my end was that my guest Dan, forgot to pack two Ozark Trail blue folding canvas arm chairs. Hopefully someone picked them up and took them home rather than leave them there. If so, could you send me a PM please? Thankyou's to Hans and Walter for their efforts, and to anyone else involved in setting up this event.

And Lastly but not Leastly by any means at all, I think thankyou's go to each individual that participated in this event as it was a very pleasurable event. No tempers, problems or anything of that kind. Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. That's what brings people back for following events!!

Over there? Hah! You're not getting off that easy... You are going to help us do a run in your neck of the woods (figure of speech), right?

There was a brief discussion before dinner about Evans Creek in mid August. Watch for a thread in the next week or so.

I had an idea (uh-oh...). My memory isn't the greatest in the world these days so I use visual memory hooks to help me. The next picture (courtesy of opracer315) has numbers by the 19 rigs. Please identify which one is yours so we can all try to "put a name to the face"? Thanks a bunch!


Mine is Number 18
