OTJ4WD 2003

18 October 2003

This year I did something totally different. I ran tailgunner for the Jeep 101 trail. We had our trail leaders in a Grand Cherokee, 3 folks in a Rodeo, two folks in a Rubicon, and me. =) My decision to stay with the beginners group was two fold. 1 - I woke up that morning and just couldn't face being in a huge group all day, and 2 - the Rubicon owner was a newbie, still on temp plates, she had never driven off road before, and never had her Jeep in 4WD yet. I figured we could get her hooked on the sport for good with a little encouragement and fun. So...off we went to have some fun... It was a totally gorgeous day in the mountains. The sun was out, it was warm and nice (well, chilly in the morning) and the fall colors were exquisite!!! While we did lots of Jeeping, I didn't get any pictures of it. When the fun stuff happened I was usually in the middle of it, and its also kind of hard to run a camera and a winch at the same time while trying to stay put on a steep muddy slope. <g> So, if someone else sends me their pictures from the day I will post them, otherwise, this is all you get.
