Yes.
Just Nate, Doyle, and myself. Covered lots of ground. No breakdowns, well except Nate loosing a rear drive-line on the way home. But my motto is unless you can't drive it home you are not broke down. I only got a few pictures and most turned out blurry.

TSF trip November 30

A few of us are planning a trip to Tillamook State Forest this Thanksgiving weekend. Plan on meeting up at Rogers Camp at 9:30am Saturday. It would be great to get a few more Broncos to join up. We are talking about it over here on this thread but I wanted to start a new one to catch you attention. ...

Weekend Wheeling?

OK, I have not been out wheeling much lately I think only once all year, so I would like to try to get out once before the snow covers the slime. If anybody goes out wheeling in the very near future I sure would like to tag along.

nice job on the pics dave.. i appreciate the thought of some one to bring a working camera!!! I only took about a dozen pictures just on Firebreak Five, and half of them were blurry. Usually if I have a rider I give them the camera and tell them if they want a ride home I need a bunch of pictures.
