2010 FSJ Enchilada pics!

Well we had a great time as usual. Heading out in the morning, I wish I had one more day. All in all just minor things with the rigs, and everyone did great. We ventured out to Off Broadway this year, come to find out that we did the easy part of it on Friday. Since it was getting dark we decided that it would be a great ending to the week. The bigger rigs did this on Saturday. It took us about 5 hours to do this trail. Enjoy the pics. Alot more to come!

Cool shots and thanks for sharing! Heimeken's truck sure got into an interesting position; and I can't help remembering how your red Wag started out and what it looks like today. That first fender crunch really started something, didn't it?

Love seeing full bodied girls on the trail. Been years since we were in las cruces for bob hazel's rock drawing comp. Busted the cj up good out on broadway. The drive out there from the hotel at 6 in the morning with no windshield was memorable.

Me and Em had a great time, be it climbing a ledge, taking a bypass or walking a wash to find the where the big boys jump up and pop out.

After 3 years of doing this, be it in a FSJ, tagging along, having fun...
...I think it's a new offshoot family, we are going to miss you folks (do we have to wait a year?), dam part to be proud of it.

Made it home about 2 hours ago... man I am tired. Thank you everyone for all the good times. We are truely one big family and I enjoy every minute of it. Sambo, Steven, and Angel....thanks for the Disco! We will have to have a cook off next year!

It was great to see some new rigs there and to see how they have all changed. George dude, for a first time you did great. I would wheel with you any day. And you make a great co-pilot. Sure hope I did not change your mind about wheelin with me>>>>LOL

I hope everyone can make it again next year and some new faces as well.

Glad you guys made it home safely. I had a lot of fun and thank you for the encouragement. You guys really helped me navigate the terrain so as to not tear up my Jeep. It was a blast riding with you guys on the hard stuff too. Everyone was super cool and it was great hanging out for the weekend. I'm really looking forward to next year and encourage anyone who can attend to please do. These guys aren't looking to tear anyones rig up. There are plenty of places to explore and the camaraderie was great. I am glad I did some slightly harder off-roading, because it allowed me to see what my rig was capable of. There is no better way to familarize yourself with the limitations of your rig than by doing something with it. Can't wait to see more pictures.

Had a great time guys. Seems every year we do a little bit harder stuff.

Hope to see all of you again next year and hopefully a few more. I went through most of the pics and picked out some of my favorites. Here is a link:

Ya got to do it Josh, we can caravan over.
This is a great group to both wheel with and hang around the fire later.

We had a couple of small conversations about next year, nothing fixed but I think most folks liked that last weekend in October.
