Re: Things I learned at WF Oh-Ten

That throwing a bag of trash in the camp fire was a bonehead thing to do...but seemed like a good idea at the time (won't happen again....)

seanR CAN run a vacuum

John can pressure the beer w/ my CO2 anytime, anyplace....

My wifes "comfort zone" has been increased tremendously.....

Mike Hale is not a fan of the Bacon Explosion and complained about his pretty rig award.....he must be a communist

After running with seanR for 2 years I still called him by the wrong last name.....

The MWC polished off 5# of Bacon Explosion and there were still people waiting in line for a piece...

The cheese flowed like wine once again...about 20# to be exact.....

That only being President of the Chapter for 3 months really has your eyes opened to what all goes into this event and the people that make it what it is....I hope that credit was given where it was due and I apologize if I overlooked anyone, it was not intentional.

and last but not least...this is the GREATEST group of guys and gals that make this chapter what it is...and I am PROUD TO BE PART OF THIS CHAPTER!!!

Re: Things I learned at WF Oh-Ten

- just because there is 30 minutes left till closing time doesnt mean you cant break, bad.
- camping next to bmyohn can be good and bad
- Robies caters kick ass food
- 70+ rigs can and will fit into 1 photo
- watching people wheel is almost as fun as wheeling yourself
- glad i brought JakeWI cause he can take awesome pics
- im ready for WF '11

Re: Things I learned at WF Oh-Ten

Sometimes Sean's bumper sticker is right.

Sleeping next to the crapper has it benefits/drawbacks.

Some people have all the luck.

Mac is just a softie.

Don't blow your horn at Kim's sister-in-law.

Skid plates are golden.

Tons more but my head hurts.

Oh, yeah, some people get pissy when you tell them they have a nice rig.

Not pissy in the lest.

There are just other rigs that are much more deserving than myself.
No, you're not one of them.

I don't know that thing stays pretty clean when you don't wheel it!

Re: Things I learned at WF Oh-Ten

A coat hanger will hold a exhaust system on when you have no spare clamp.

The ghost at The Attica Hotel is real.

You can wheel the heck out of a jeep ,at the end of the day drive it home...

My wife had a good time.

I'm getting old,just can't find the energy to party the last night.

I was just as close to that as you! And all I remember about that was a string of expletives that would make a sailor blush.

Thanks for the air!

Re: Things I learned at WF Oh-Ten

Winterfest is fun wheeling, but really great to see all the old and new friends.

Knowing someone has rolled, everyone is ok, but actually "seeing" them walking around afterward is priceless. Thank god for roll cages.

Don't drink Jaeger and then try moonshine. This is a really bad combo and makes me an idiot. This will not be repeated, I promise.

Re: Things I learned at WF Oh-Ten

My pile isn't as capable as SeanR's winch.A locker will take you a lot further than you should go.Street tires still suck.Bacon Explosion is goooood!Tyler likes petting my hat.Aaron can suck it.Rob can ride in my group anytime.I can wheel the urine out of my rig and make it 140 miles home.I still have a lot to do to it.There is at least one kid who can drink and do jumping jacks.It gets better and better each year.WF Stogies were a big hit.The campfire is the place to be.Reaffirmed: The MWC is the best chapter.Reaffirmed: People will bend over backwards to help you out.I'm sure there is more...Had the best time. Can't wait for next year.

Re: Things I learned at WF Oh-Ten

Did those count as Jumping Jacks? Falling Jacks?


1) Sleeping bags are not so warm once the zippers break
2) Midwest chaper has some great people
3) I'm no longer a Winterfest Virgin
4) Contrary to what my neighbors think, I don't have the ugliest Xj in the midwest. Mud is Makup for Jeeps...
