Default Hollister Hills March 6th, TBHHR Report

First of all I want to thank you Jon, Amy, Masa and Becky for setting this event up and catering it as well! Also, thanks to everyone else for coming out and having a great time wheeling with me. I appreciate this more than you know, it’s really hard for me to leave such a group of awesome people! I for sure plan on coming back to visit for jamborees and other smaller scale trips events. Once again Thanks guys!
Ok, before I start crying like a baby, here are some pictures…

A pleasure as always Will. A great run for a good cause.

Looks like all the pics you posted up are the same as mine so I guess that's it.

See you around some time








































j/k



Damn typical Brit vehicle having to be yanked out by some Yanks

Digging thru some pics and video I'll see what I can come up with.

Let the post event post fun begin

ya its a bummer... oh well haha. just goes to show that pedram and i need to get on with getting that think welded and modified up higher. if i had gone a little to the right i would have been fine.

all fun and games.

oh and you all really should have stayed after the obstacle course. i made it through that new obstacle they put in by truck hill. plus you should have went to the quarry with us. every hill and rutted out incline there i have made it through both ways. no problem and never got stuck. still amazed at what this truck is making it through.

I have more pictures coming but I have the post up these really quick.
This is the aftermath from the Show Stopper for all of you who had to leave early!
Before leaving Jarell got some mad air and landed on a bolder. Look closely at his front tires.




No one was hurt, however, more on trail repairs were preformed on the Discovery courteously of Pedram and Jarell made it home safe last night.

Glad to hear you got to run some trails and not get stuck Would have liked to have stayed longer but did get to have a nice dinner out

Good to hear no one got hurt and Jarell made it home safe.

Any video of catching air???

Looks like it's a little toe out on the passenger side

I love it....

Had a great time.....good to see everyone again and we couldn't have asked for more perfect weather to send off Will.

Will sorry Alyssa and i couldn't have stayed to the end....Hope you guys had fun.

Jon big thanks to Amy for cleaning up Alyssa....I have to remember to bring extra clothes for the little one on future trips... Her mom laughed after Alyssa told her what happened.

BTW: I kept my promise to myself.... to stay out of the mud on this trip..... i was happy that the second obstacle course finally opened later in the afternoon....

See the belly of the truck got dirty...... OK maybe a little dirty...
