What I learned

1) Teddy now knows my nickname and used it several times today.

2) drawing tickets is a great way to keep teddy occupied during the raffle and can even pull my number at the right time.

3) no alcohol at the raffle makes the raffle go a little faster

4) Harlan in 80 degree weather kicks ass

5) new three link kit works flawlessly

6) I make new friends every year

7) sec guys are awesome

8) you can use google to find specific posts in naxja easier than naxja'a search, try the following "bwfdrums goat naxja"

What I learned

9) a 220v welder (w 50amp plug) can be plugged directly into a 50 amp rv outlet. Just doesn't use one of holes.

2) Bring a spare camp chair

3) Get a better cooler

4) Coilovers are awesome (Which I already know, just trying to convince others to upgrade because they drive so slowly)

Re: What I learned

I will bring my own gas cans next time. Went through lots of gas in XJ! Thanks to Jim for letting me borrow his gas cans.

Re: What I learned

Wheeling someone else's junk is way better than your own.

I should not wheel the wife's, cause I break things.

high velocity rocks make neat windshield art.

don't follow brian.

Re: What I learned

1. In rural Kentucky, on a weekend, it is hard to tell which trailers are having a yard sale and which aren't.

2. There is actually a gas station that doesn't require you to pre-pay before pumping gas!

3. A stolen Frontier pick up can make it up to the lower rock garden from the Evarts entrance.

4. On a road that is a combination of pavement and maintained gravel, 20% of the Jeeps will still break down

5. Country stations in Harlan County apparently don't know that people were making country music prior to 2005 - which is why my iPod came in very handy

6. Sadly, Mac didn't remember meeting me at XJ Fest in Tellico 13 years ago.

7. Even more sadly, after calculating actual miles with a GPS, I realized that my wife's WJ DD only gets about 1.5 MPG better than my XJ.

8. It is WAY easier to pack a Jeep when a tent, cooking items, and sleeping quarters are not necessary.

9. Cricket doesn't have as good of cell coverage as they sold me on.

10. Harlan spends some coin for their fireworks display.

11. On Saturday night, I was pretty sure I heard a meth lab explode.

12. My fortune cookie fortune - "Friends long absent are coming back to you" - was pretty dead on since I missed the Crawl the last 2 summers (either that or it means I need to reinstate my Facebook account).

13. My 8 year old has already decided on the personalized plate that she is going to put on her off-road Jeep when she turns 16.

14. It is acceptable to use $125,000 worth of tow rig and NASCAR equipped trailer to haul an $800 Jeep to the trail.

15. It's been years since Lobster drove a rig with 31" tires.

16. $4000 worth of raffle merchandise gets distributed FAST with Stump on the M-I-C.

17. I never want to come to Harlan again.....

.....unless it is in a tow rig.

Re: What I learned

1. Don't follow Brian.
2. If you do follow Brian make sure to have Macgyvr behind you to be your brakes when Brian has to tow you out.
3. No Bus makes every jeep owner cringe.
4. Nate has some pretty sophisticated software.
5. Don't go to Harlan without a trailer.
6. Ben and I have the worst luck.
7. The SEC is a pretty great group!
