    That's how I got into racing sportbikes/supermoto back in the late 90s. Getting tunnel vision and heart racing...nothing like chasing a guy on a bike with 1/2 the power and 4X the skill walk away from you motivated me to push it harder until I got good at it too, and how I transitioned to wheeling.

    Watching Bruce Hatton walk right up Daniel in his little Tacoma, then coaching me up in my open/open bronco gave me a rush. But it wasn't until I attempted to follow @Jason W. Up the v-notch at big creek in my lowly tj on 33s that I felt that same tunnel vision and racing heart that I got on the track. I was hooked after that. Following more capable rigs is EXACTLY the motivation that keeps me excited.

    I totally get it

    I had a blast and watching you and your rig was awesome. At most of our rides, Robbie’s CJ is the most built rig, so it was great to see what yours could do. I just hope you weren’t bored riding with us, because you made sure we ran the trails that all of us could do (even if we didn’t think we could haha). I will follow you around there anytime, the trails we ran were perfect, and I loved seeing what we could all do.

    I also think the best part was seeing old friends and making new friends, and I hope to get to ride with @Jody Treadway soon!

    And just for the record, my TJ will never see tons and stickies haha :D

    Anytime you wanna wheel, you just holler.
    You have my number, Holmes.

    Jody pushed me past my comfort zone. Got me uncomfortable. I even get a dent in my Jeep. I doubt I would wheel with him again.
    But he was a nice guy. And, I served him my meat.

    I ashamed to say it, but I ate the same meat and it left a lot to be desired :flipoff2:

    But for reals that tenderloin was on point, especially when it was fried in butter the next day.

    My second time at Harlan I joined a group lead by Kenneth a day before CTB rode together.

    Let’s just say I was at the rear of the pack and I was just blindly hitting ledges and rocks trying to keep up with the tail lights in front of me on trails I had never seen. I remember “we’ll just hit some warm up trails” was the phrase haha. No spotter just having fun while being scared. I gained a lot of confidence in my equipment after that day :)

    I had hit about everything we did at Harlan before, except WhiteTail Crawl. Didn’t even know that was there. That was a killer trail and I’ll be doing that again.
    I like to wheel with everyone, big, small, beginner, don’t matter. Shoot we had guys in a JK on 33s that really didn’t have a clue what they were in for. You can bet they learned and they had fun. They were willing to try and trusted us to coach them along. And we understood when they wanted to go around something, no shame in that. We all started somewhere.

    @Jody Treadway I figured out my temp gauge, it was just the positive wire for the gauge came loose when I was gently placing the front end in Steel Hill.

    Those guys in JK were really good sports, and they certainly took that JK from mall rated to trail rated in one weekend. Also used their winch, straps, and hi lift all for the first time!

    Photo dump (all photos are from Friday morning and there are a lot more than this. I left my camera in Chris's jeep after it broke so it stayed at the campground)

    I just have one very serious question. Was the younger dark headed girl that works at the permit office pregnant? I’m the last 4 years I’ve been going there she was not pregnant one, because she had just had her baby.

    Damn if that's not what I told Jason to run in his "I have to go build a new rig right fucking now" JK. I only planned on it taking two hours. I move faster than you in the woods, I guess.
