    The whole weekend was a blast, and as always it was great to see some old members, and meet some new ones.. :)

    Congragulations to HWLaser23 for winning the BBQ Cook off.. I dunno if you bribed the judges, or just had the better ribs, or what.. But in the spirit of "There are No Rules" you pulled it off. :D

    To Team RiverLand (Trickle's and WMC's) If I woulda been judging it woulda been a clean sweep hands down. I think William woulda got it on the actual BBQ'd Ribs, but Brandin would've won because of presentation, and overall setup at the camp.. Not to mention having enough Bomb food to feed the entire camp, and snacking all day.

    Stacy and I were laughing all the way home from all the shenanigans all weekend.

    For myself partying up on the hill in the middle of the night was probably the highlight..

    I look forward to doing it again in the future. I think if we do another BBQ cook off though, we probably oughta have some rules & categories.. LOL

    Thanks again to everyone for coming out!

    RD

    Thanks Dave for putting this shindig on, had a blast. Looks like the fun started after we left. Next time I bringing the motorhome. I hope everybody enjoyed the short rides in the sandrail. I had to cut it short due to a flat tire and the two drunk chicks that passed out in the truck.

    I'am not sure who's barbeque ribs I had but they were off the hook. Maybe it was the Coors light, not sure. I'll look forward to more events like this.

    That rail is WAAAYYY MORE capable then I was originally thinking. I thought we were going to go putt around, and about half way through I'm tightening every freakin belt I could get my hands on.. LOL :D

    It was nice meeting you, and seeing FlatMVN again & crew. :) Nice that Richard showed up for some beers for awhile as well! Haven't seen him in about a year if i had to guess.

    Great turn out we had a blast.....Cool little riding area

    I wish I could have stayed later on Saturday but a 1 y/o and his mom dictate my schedule...lol:skull

    It was nice meeting Milk $$$ and his wife (thanks for the ice) It was also cool meeting Mr/Mrs Cigalert and the others.

    I got wrapped up in the cooking towards the end and wish I would have tried Andrews and Williams ribs(congrats guys):D:champagne:

    All in all good times.....pretty sure Dave and I tried to make it up every sand dune Friday night and if I remember correctly (Williams jager bombs made things a little fuzzy) I might have even driven it....haha:eek::champagne::skull (needs travel and belts ASAP;))

    It runs good and sounds bitchen.....

    Now that I have the mid travel its tough to go back to a stockish ride. Whats crazy is you don't realize how good it actually works until doing a side/side same day comparison.

    Truth be told I think they both suck and I want a Rzr S like Pauls...lol after going for a ride I have to admit those S's are no joke bone stock.:cool::grumble:

    The RZR S's are the heat no doubt.. They are WAAAAYYYY better then anything else out there IMO. I'm just concerned about what happens after the warranty runs out. I need to get my LT'd and then I'll know if I made the right decision or not.

    Pics from the weekend. :) Our attempt to make it to Swansea.. Todd yelled at me for driving too far in between breaks though so we never made it all the way there. :D

    It was fun cruising the washes though, never done that before. :D

    I think with LT and a dyno tune you will like it a ton more....

    The thing I noticed with the Rzr is with the power/weight they act more like a quad. They seem to have enough pep/weight dist. to carry the nose a tad when you smash the pedal where I always feel like my rhino wants to nose in on the whoops....(motor position )

    So during one of the many beer stops.. I cut the shit out of my finger in a can in the cooler. Danny finally pulls up in the rail and he must've missed a corner or something, because there's sticks & cactus in the passenger and back seat.. LOL

    I make a comment about it, he throws a litle piece of cactus and the little bastard stuck to me!! Those needles are sharp! Note Danny's thumbs up in the background.

    Stacy had some 1st aid work to do before we proceeded.. :D

    Group Photo at the Beer / Cigar stop ( 1/2 way point of the ride) This was the Friday morning "Pre Party" fun run.. :D

    From Left To right.

    Danny (BadBlown572), Myself/Stacy, Norma/Andrew (HWLaser23's), The rest of the group are friends of Todd's from Pheonix, and for the life of me I can't remember their names right now. Todd&Michelle (Speedmn) are the 2nd couple in from the right.

    At one of the stops, the "Powder Puff" section started.. So with the girls driving we started blazing back to camp. I was riding in Todd's Rhino listening to the stereo. :D

    I think the total damage for the weekend was

    1 22 inch Rim Taco'd (hit a pothole on shea Rd)
    1 bent spindle on a Rhino
    Joyner had some problems, but I'm not sure what..
    1 sliced finger..
    A bunch of spent bullets both ammunition and Silver.. :D
    A whole bunch of pigs, and a cow.

    The second pics was everyone partying up on the hillside late friday night.. :D If your wondering what they are looking at, we were watching WMC's billy goat get stuck, and make another run.. Took a couple of tries, but he got it up. (get your sig lines)

    Moving forward..

    The Sandbar Resort Car Boat showed up.. :)

    I think most of our Rigs had finally showed up in camp now.. About 1/2 the group made a run to the desert bar. :) The other 1/2 was going for the win on the BBQ scene. Dirty Deeds Tim & Karen showed up on the quad.

    Our winner of the BBQ cook off.. Andrew (Hwlaser23)

    (Please note, everything is already prepared in a tin, and he's heatin em up right now.. Which earned the name "Mc Rib") I say he played by the rules, and if the judges picked his to win, then congragulations.. :D

    Kinda hard to see, but I believe that's Flatmvn on the left. Jon (friend of the sandbar resort owners next) the owners of the Sandbar resort.. and I can't tell who's on the right.

    WTMFA pretty much brought a cannon to a knife fight.. This would be his rail.. :D

    Chemical Driven's rail is the yellow one in the 2nd set. He took us for a pretty decent night ride. We were thinking we were just gonna be cruisin. We were both tightening the belts right after we left camp. I can't believe how fast this thing is.

    Let the BBQ judging begin!

    I'm surprised the Corona Bribe didn't work out.. I'm thinking that was the Handiwork of Wendi.. You might also notice her olympic finish pose. :D

    In comes the hitters, the Cole Trickles & WMC's submit their ribs..

    Note Cole Trickle actually prepared his with presenation in the tins, lettuce whole 9 yards.. He was the camp favorite to win.. Point in fact there was originally talk of a "Clean Sweep"

    Stacy was talking about the pulled pork all the way home. Wants me to go to the brandin school of cooking.

    Now these would be Ole RD's ribs cookin.. Obviously would've won the whole thing, but since I'm not ellidgeable to compete. :D j/k

    I don't think i would've placed, but believe me on my Pork ribs there wasn't any left over. The submissions were way beyond my skill level.

    Now that the judging is over, and offroading has commenced.. The big coolers come back out again, the campfire was lit and let partying begin all over again.

    After 3 days of this stuff though, most were in bed by 10 - 11:00 PM on saturday.> :D
