Re: Things I learned at WF Oh-Ten

-Bacon Explosion was worth the trip alone!
-MWC are the greatest group of guys/gals to meet and wheel with
-wish i would have joined sooner
-taking a lot of pictures can be fun
-sorting threw all the pictures sucks, especially when you took 582
-don't feed SeanR's dogs. glad he picked up the poo behind the fire.
-Brenden needs to learn how to put up a tent
-wade's red MJ took on a lot of obstacles and still can look good
-wade's camper has heat which beat a tent so i didnt have to stand in the bathroom to warm up like others every morning

cant wait for next year and hopefully with my rig next time.

Re: Things I learned at WF Oh-Ten

I learned:

I can still wheel the piss out of a d30 on 36" tires and minimal problems.

Food at a Friday pot luck and at a Saturday dinner can go FAST.

A tranfer case skid is worth the effort to put in. After seeing Wade's carnage, I will be putting mine on

A campground can be nice in the morning but hell in the afternoon.

I am sure there are more, but can't think of them right now.

One more I just thought of, no matter who I bring to Winterfest for a guest, they are good entertainment.

Re: Things I learned at WF Oh-Ten

1) On Rev's pre-run, when he says be prepared for body damage, be prepared for body damage. Granted, it was minor, but it happened and I am no longer a body damage virgin

2) My son enjoys wheeling, but I think he enjoys stomping in mud puddles and collecting rocks even more.

3) Electric blankets, doggone it, electric blankets...why didn't we think of that before WF?

Another thing to the list: My Christopher Walked impression was in high demand with Aaron and Jon. It was also well recepted around the bonfire.

Re: Things I learned at WF Oh-Ten

damn, looks like I missed a good time I'll try and make it next year... hopefully I won't be halfway through not getting around to doing any repairs on my XJ by then.

Re: Things I learned at WF Oh-Ten

They have a drinking age for a reason. I believe those were "falling Jacks".
A Rubicon can keep up with XJs.
The orange trail has holes that will swallow your Jeep.
Bloose doesn't like rock face.
Having a tow rig with tools makes new friends with BEER.
