That was fun.  Thanks to everyone that set it up and kept the group together today.  Wish I could've stayed around for beers and stories! 

Didn't take many pics.

I'm convinced that Clark amd Justin are the same person as they are never both in the same place at the same time.

Enjoyed the ride. Very nice that it wasn't as muddy and rutted as we thought it could be. Sorry I couldn't make the stop in Helen.

I was at the absolute end of the line and took zero pictures. Hayden even brought his good camera and didn't shoot any unfortunately.

I do have two stories:

1.  Justin left his coffee on his rear fender flare. It made it all the way out of the Wal Mart parking lot and didn't dump until about 1/4 mile down the road. It was funny until It fell and I realized it was almost full... as a coffee fiend I felt bad for him.

2.  Either Danny or Jordan had many burritos last night.  More than once they had to completely open doors and vent the LJ as we were bouncing down the trail. At one point I thought for sure Jordan was going to jump out just for the fresh air.

That is wrong. Then after we stopped a Sunrise grocery I think they were eating Boiled Peanuts


I had a good time. What I did learn is go ahead and air down and disconnect. Wow that was a bumpy ride

It was a great ride and not too muddy, thanks guys.  //toast//

Too busy having a good time so no pics.

Just curious, who was it that called back a asked if the WJ made it through the hill on Flatland? Trust me, I wasn't the slow one in the group. Old but not slow...  //OLDSKOOL//  //popcorn//

1.  I would be bummed too as I need my coffee.
2.  Hysterical  - is that what caused all the fog in that picture earlier in the thread.

Thanks @Doug and the GATR Core Staff that helped pull this ride together and made sure we had a good day. It was good to see some familiar faces and to make some new friends.  //cheers2//

Seriously? Air Down and disconnect---lol  //LMAO//

 I like riding those easy trails when they are slightly wet because you don't need to air down or disconnect but then I guess we all have different comfort levels.  We have some pics but the photographer is crashed out on the couch.

We had fun!  as for the airing down, I wish I had only for a softer ride.....I had 35psi. I looked in the mirror and it looked like my dog was line dancing in the back of the JK....... Thanks for the day...
