Well, it was a great turn out even though we didn't get to the Can Opener or do "the challenge". Unfortunatley the snow got the best of us (this time) and we ended up turning around with a plan of heading to Stave.....

On our way, we stopped at a trail that Paul (dentedup) and I built about a month ago. It's a short little loop through the trees with a small rock crawl down a creek. We call it the 4 to 1 Trail.... Soon, the tarps were set up and lunch was on the go (again, GREAT JOB BRUCE, you the man, thankx. the dogs were awesome). Before we knew it the rain eased up a little and a few brave soldiers ran the trail. An orange Zuk (Sorry, I forgot your name[31]) was the first and even with a few reverse problems made it through unscathed. Up next was myself, and even though I'd done it before, I'd never done it backwards so I gave her a go (thanks Paul). Then John was up. I'll let him tell his story as there was a lillte animosity between him and his bro......eh Kev !!!![h][h] Good work though John.[3] Those Boggers really grip !!!!

Then, the bets started.... Seeings how Kev had a whole whack of beer he was dying to give away, the bet was that Paul (full size) couldn't get through the trail without touching a tree. The stakes....4 of Kev's beer to 1 of Paul's (hence the name 4 to 1 Trail. Aren't we clever). It was close (especially on one tree), and with the aid of my winch on the rear of Paul's GMC, we made it. NO CONTACT !!![8D] Good work Paul;)) And let me tell you, there is no better beer, than a won beer. Thankx Kev [3]

Last, but not least, was Kevin. We were going to make more bets, but I had no more beer to cover myself. It was going to be a time trial between me and Kev, and let me tell you, I'm glad I didn't have the beer to cover the bet !!![22][22] And as I said above, I'll let these cats tell their story....[f][36][h]

So, even though the Can Opener Challenge didn't take place we still had a wicked day of funinbc, and rest assured the Challenge WILL take place in the near future. Stay tuned for the date !!!![36]

Thanks to everyone who came out, hope you all had fun !!! Excellent effort to the dude in the black Jeep that tried the trail[3] and the 2 wheel drive soldiers that came out to watch. Greg, I'll have to hold on to the stickers until the real challenge, they look awesome.

Rich.

Ps. Guys, if you have pics, post em here. I have some but I'll have to get them to Costco to get them on a CD.

It was a little wet but what a great day!!! Nice trail Rich and Paul!!! It has real possibilities and when the weather gets better we'll have to go back up there and see if we can expand on it.

Thank you to everyone who bought food and went in on the 50/50 draw. The winner was George who collected $25.00

Bubba Bruce was in fine form as you can see. I think it's time for a name change?



Hey if your buddy's cant make fun of you who can?

Oh and thanks to Wade for taking the stove home. That saved a big hassle in packing it back up and tying it down in the CJ

Again I would like to express my unhappyness with having to work weekends.[33]
One of these days someones gonna have to die or quit, then they'll have to hire someone and I won't be the low man, But he who is, Will be workin weekends and i'll be able to read his agonising stories on some web forum.

And with that said, It looks like everyone had lots of fun.
Wish I was there.

Hey frenchy therer were burgers as well so ---HA-----

The problem was we had many stocker types that were comming along for the ride and view,,,, so wouldnt have been fair to them to have carried on and left them all behind ! We found a great little trail that I had seen a few trips back and thought it was doable ,,,,,,,,,,and thanks to paul and Rich it was even a loop of sorts ,,,, lots more possibilities for that trail !



Now Frenchy that stuff you typed their really doesnt make any sence ,,,, You been drinkin again?????????????

Ya Kyle, A bonfire party would be cool. But again I have to work weekends(no, i'm not bitter),But maybe if its a saturday or sumtin you guys decide on I can show up late and at least get to meet some people.
Cuz a bonfire party in the middle of the week wouldn't be as fun.
But ya we could come up with some games and stuff.
