That was definitely a cool shot, .... but not as good as the one of Grandpa’s Jeep on Potato Salad Hill!

Ok, where is it?  Don’t hold back on us now!

Ok, you asked for it.

I did not have enough leave to take all week off, so I came down Friday night and played Saturday (Rusty Nail/Golden Spike/Poison Spider) and Sunday Morning (Moab Rim), then I shot home Sunday night so I could work Monday, then back down Monday night, ready to rockTuesday morning and the rest of the week.
While I was home working, I left the key to Grampa’s Jeep with Jeff. He, along with Mike, Ward, Billy and the maintenance guy from the campground, took it upon themselves to fix a frame issue we had discovered on Grampa’s Jeep  before I left. I was very surprised and grateful.

Then, just to pull my chain a little, they drove Grampa’s Jeep up to Potato Salad Hill and staged this awesome photo and sent it to me with the caption:
 “The frame works good! Having a blast! You should be here.”  Then Ward added a note ‘We’re on our third tank of gas.”

These guys are awesome and great friends. 


Notice all the gear from my Jeep scattered over the hill.

Here’s the picture I took of Tower Arch from afar while Jeff, the Energizer Bunny, was hiking down to the arch to get the close up pictures he posted on page 4.

I had a blast running around with all of the flat fenders. I also enjoyed meeting Stan, David, Billy and running hell’s revenge. Here are a few pictures from EJS.

The black jeep with the RCV logo was in the bowl being winch out when Billy and I showed up. You can see us staging in the background.

.... That's why I like EJS

His long were we parked next to those guys, 45 minutes.
They could have pumped up their view numbers with a bit more coverage than that.

I knew he would have to give us little more love than that one overhead shot.

The comments at 23:30 were priceless! that is the best part of wheelin a flatty and spanking the newer jeeps. Way to go JPET for showinf them how to do it.


I recorded the Xtreme offroad show last week and missed seeing Ian hosting the show, hope he hasn't been replaced, but was just out on more trails!
