I just signed up for the trail run the day after the party.
Much to learn and Bill seems like a great teacher.
Looking forward to it.

Send a message via AIM to whippersnapper02
If I lived in the area or if I had a job that paid me ridiculous amounts of money and gave me ridiculous amounts of time off I'd show.

Interested in the trail run but the website says for 8 "well set-up" vehicles. I have allpro skids but no sliders or bumbers yet? Anyone signed up for this yet? Also, you think this is a class format or just wheelin for the day?


Edit: Just saw that OH-MAN signed up.....what do you think man?

Thanks,
Mike

I do not know which trail Bill will be going to do.
Rachelsaid it may be Hackberry Creek.
I will hope for the best but I do have sliders and a couple skids along with bumpers.

The only thing I am not sure about is the stock 265-70-16s
Hackberry will be a challange for me if it is the one, but then so was Box canyon ( the sissy route) north to south.
This is how we learn I hope

I'm sure with the armor and a locker you should be good. Bill looks to be cool as hell. Probably won't make this one till I have some better armor. Still new to this sport and owe too much....lol! Still want to do box canyon though! Have fun and thanks for the response!

After getting my truck dimpled by the hail storm at 5000 miles and some serious Arizona pin striping at the Vulture Mine run it is offically scuffed a bit!!I think it has been christened into off road land.

I hope Bill is gentle with my off road newbieness

Thanks to everyone that came out to make this a great event for Bill Burke's 4-Wheeling America! We had about 100 people show up, and all in all I think we made this a special event for them.

Here is some pics:

BB4WA's Defender in front of SE's Shop:


FlyingBaby (my daughter) taking pics with her kid Camera:


Yes, that is a Superwinch for $400! (didn't last long)


Forest from Woody's underground prepping the coleslaw:


ASFIR 4x4's JK was on display, and some ASFIR 4x4 Hi-Lift base plates were in the raffle:


Tacoma & FJ:


The Parking lot was hopping with vehicles...


Corbin's Dakota:


A cool Quigley 4x4:


New and Old School:


LR3:


CJ and TJ:


The last time we'll see this FJ, enjoy your new 80!:


Drooling over the D90:


TJ and Bronco:


Cool Earth Roamer:


ER complete with a scooter!


Was a full Parking Lot:


Ah, one of my favorite JK's, just because the city of Tempe likes to send the owner photoradar photos of me driving it on a test drive after we did some work to it:


Gorgeous Land Rovers:


The D90 I drooled on:


4Runner, and FJ:


Tacomas:


A sleeper, I loved it!:


Good turn out, and lots of fun:

Had a great time at the party!
Thanks Will for putting on the party.
Met a lot of cool people and the vehicles there were amazing.

I have a couple pictures of the trail ride, it was the biggest challange my Tacoma and I have been through.
Big thanks to everyone on the ride for helping us out on the tough sections, I did choose the bypass on one section and still got it hung on both sliders at the top, Bill drug us out and over the top.
Here are a couple pics.

That looked like a fun time and some nicely built trucks.

Trail looks sweet OH-MAN! What a challenge, props for doing it! That pic is sweet of Bill 3 wheeling it!

Thanks it was a blast.
I am glad Bill was there to help us out when we were in a bit deep.
The red Rover was not Bill's, his is a green one.

The couple in the red one were from B.C. Canada and were great, they had that Rover in that position many times and we were thinking that is real close to becoming EPIC!!! but they kept it on mostly the ground.
