    ...from my first CTB ride circa 1999. My dad and I were in the silver CJ.

    Holy shit! That's my dad squatted down taking pictures. The one and only time he wheeled with me. We got home and the crazy zoom lens didn't do well. I have very few pictures that made it.
    If you have any more at all I will gladly pay for reproductions.
    That's my B2 all crossed up too!
    Edit, if that's the Globe in the top it will confirm my pop. But in recolection I don't think I had axle swapped it yet.

    I have more pictures, just didn't want to clog up the internets. I remember thinking how badass your B2 was at the time! The photos were taken with a potato, so not all of them turned out great, but I do have a couple more of your rig.

    That top photo has Jason Watson (?) who had a full-size blue and white bronco at the time. Seems like he broke an axle or a hub on that trip. That's Ben's tan YJ and I think that's him sitting showing off that leg in the camping picture. I can't remember who's Samurai that is. I was thinking Dennis Vader, but wasn't Vader's Samurai black?

    Jason Miller. Worked at Napa in downtown. Jason Lackey is in one and I think that one fella was a Walker. Miller had a pea green classic Bronco with a white top too! I don't know which vehicle Jason Lackey had at this time but I think it was a Blue and white classic Bronco or a white Toyota. Man these pics help me remember some stuff.

    Pretty sure that's Elkin (a trail we got to do once iirc) or possibly "Pond Mtn.

    That's pond mountain. The red sammy is Kevin Harris. Iirc I was on this trip too. My stock tj had 7k on the odometer. My wife was my girlfriend. Dennis Vaders, @Granny and many more, were at this ride.

    But part of me thinks this is Globe too.

    Yep, that was possibly Elkin or maybe Taylorsville. That was when we would meet on Sunday and ride for the day. The camping trip was Pond Mountain, located close to Calliante. Dennis Vaders found a sled and folks took turns riding on it behind his rig.

    I believe Pond Mountain... and if my memory serves me correctly, Darlene got sick, Bruce Hatton escorted us back down toward town and we had a hell of a ride back home. Guess it was a memorable trip for all! :):shaking:

    First couple pics look like saddle mountain up here in Surry county. I lead a ride as a guest of the club up there one time probably 96-98.

    Had the pleasure of riding Saddle Mountain once... never got an opportunity to go back. I really enjoyed it!

    Ol, the Good Ol Day's! I Do remember those pictures, many faces, Parts of Pond Mtn. But other sections look more like Elkin/Saddle, or what the one in N.Wilksboro was. I was there too; finally found mine at the end of a parking line, just the nose sticking out. That's the Rides I Like! Not that fond of Rock Crawling.

    These could be from two different rides and they got thrown together in this same photo envelope.

    So awesome to see old photos.

    i also want to point out there doesn't look like there were many rigs on anything larger than 35” tires, so you current big tire folk just remember that at some point my rig was on big tires :D

    No, my heep is black.

    Actually, the closer I look, the less I think I was there I have the same pictures from the same spots with alot of the same people, but it must have been a different outing.

    Oh yeah, the V notches were in fact at Saddle Mtn. I only rode there one time and don't remember too much about it. It's funny seeing my pristine, Tan YJ on 31's. That's when 33's and 35's were the norm. That was probably 1997 or '98, maybe '99. Dylan mentioned that maybe it was the Globe, but it was not. The Globe had a thick overgrowth and was much tighter.

    I couldn't remember if it was '98 or '99. Given your post and mcutler's confirmation, it does appear to have been 1998.
