Re: Things I learned at WF Oh-Ten

- An XJ can fit down a ATV trail
- People will drink anything you put in a Mason jar
- If Rev tells you, you won't get stuck that doesn't mean he won't
- This group of guys and gals are the best!

Re: Things I learned at WF Oh-Ten

Dyno-mite LOVES jager, until the next morning when she falls down in the tent still drunk.

My junk will still do 70 on the highway, but you can't hear the person next to you talking.

Spools make turning in the mud problematic.

The giveaway jeep is awesomely capable, when you can keep fuel going to the motor and the exhaust attached.

the MWC is still the best.

Re: Things I learned at WF Oh-Ten

Wow, well i learned a real lot....

First, you guys are one of the best car groups I have ever been in, and im in a few

I learned that a stock jeep really can do a lot, and it wont take much to make it do a lot more.

I learned that drinking around a campfire is way more fun then any bar or club

even though you might have just met some one, they will be right under your rig with you covered in gas trying to fix the leak

i learned that having towing coverage is one of the greatest things ever!!!

Re: Things I learned at WF Oh-Ten

I learned that winterfest is the best 4 x 4 event i have been to and has the best people in their group.

I really want lockers and more skid plates.
Do not get worried about a simple check engine light after a sputter or two. ( new plug wires and what not coming)

I really miss living in Indiana.

Everyone i met from the MWC are the kind of people i like to hang with.

Driving 70 through Chicago with a mud covered xj makes people give you a bit more room.

The people on my street are REALLY clueless about the jeep thing

Re: Things I learned at WF Oh-Ten

I learned on the trip home that when you have a d-bag driver that's taking 15 miles to pass you in the left lane, all you have to do is wiggle the trailer a little bit and they move right along.

good hint, I should've done that to a Cracklier that cant decide what speed to set and kept pass me then slow down (i pass him/her whatever the d-bag that person is) for probably 10 miles.

Re: Things I learned at WF Oh-Ten

I also wanted to add something that I remembered from the Saturday night/Sunday morning camp fire....Dan Wheeler will take one for the team and reach between the legs of a stray dog to check its sex......

Re: Things I learned at WF Oh-Ten

Things I learned...

If Rev remembers your name you are golden

Get more sleep the night before Saturdays Run...it isnt pretty

Dan likes to honk his horn at innocent peoples tents

Two people are not always enough to keep you from freezing at night

Mixing Jameson, Jack, Jager, Dark Tequilla, and Moonshine at the Campfire Saturday night can result in memory loss...

Also matching a guy shot for shot that is twice your size can result in you being carried to a tent by your sister and brother in law.. Not my most glorious moment...

If allowed Winterfest 2011 is a must do..

Thanks for the great time everyone...Hopefully next year I will be allowed to show my face at the campfire..
