Another awesome rally for the books! It's always a pleasure seeing those old familiar faces, and snouts (Hi Norris!), and seeing new ones for the very first time. Here's a couple photos I took over the weekend. Didn't get to take as many as I normally would due to all the fun, food, and drinks I was having! This is my first post in a couple of years on a forum so hope this works out :mrgreen:
Obligatory group shots of all the vehicles in attendance out on the dry lake bed:

@DanielsCousin: So Great to meet You Too! Thanks for the Pics of THOR! Yes, the bed of THOR was scrambled eggs after several attempts on that hill - Great Fun! I should post a pic of the extra 5gal Jerry Can I had strapped (briefly) to the bed of the truck - totally beat up after that :)

We stumbled upon some squatters on this Flinstones era abode. It looked like some kind of B.C. crack shack:

Some night shots to wrap this one up. We have a quick group shot of the muscle, my Pathfinder right as we're getting ready to head out and a shot of the desert as everyone went home.

Can't wait for the next one!

Those are some awesome pics! I might have to print a few of those pictures and use them as wall art at my house

That pretty much does it for my photos of the event. I'll make sure to snap more next time around!

Here's the younger generation fighting with a tire. Notice: True Knight throwing his hands up in frustration.20191011_144146_HDR.jpg The folks with a little more callous on their hands have to step in, grab them by the back of the collar to show them how it's done.

I meant you were frustrated with Rigo struggling with the tire, but if you want to me to refer to you as part of the younger generation I need to put myself in that group too.

Well shoot. Apparently I should have been paying more attention in this section instead of trying to do all my research in the hot rodding and general 5 ton section. You all were pretty much in my back yard. I'm in North Edwards, about 45 minutes from Barstow/Yermo area. Looks like a fun outing. Would have been nice to meet a few guys and talk a little shop since I'm new to the 5 ton game. Well, if anyone ends up heading up the 58 sometime and wants to stop for a frosty beverage, hit me up.

The next get together is in April for the Spring Rally.
I found a few pictures of the first nights campfire. We stood up a pine tree on end and this made for a really tall fire
