Trail Meet at The Mounds, Mt. Morris, Michigan Sat May 30, 2009

We had 5 Commanders from the Forum at the The Mounds today. The members that came out were Wmjacobsjr, CommanderChaos, TYMAC, CommanderDrako, and me GPintheMitten. Drako brought his wife and 3 daughters, Chaos and Tymac each brought their sons. We had a great time.

From the following slide show you might think we were stuck all the time but that is just when we got most of the pictures. Here's mine. Others will surely post more.

(Edit: Anyone with advice how to properly post a slideshow from Photobucket?)

Great pics and a great time it seems! One question - I see that the Red XK has a winch, but it looks like you hooked up the tow strap to get it out of the mud. Was that just for expediency?

Few Random pics from today. Thanks to trail leader and grill chef extraordinaire GP for heading up todays run. Being the chase truck limited me to very few photo ops so hopefully the others can add pics.

As you can see, GP really had to anchor his XK to winch mine out. Now I'm just returning the favor.

Yes, it was just faster to use the tow strap and go. It didn't take much. Later we put the winch to good use.
