Damage report:

Hit some heavy rain and hail on the drive down. AC condenser and hood latch took a beating.

Wow, I can't believe the hail didn't take out the windshield. :)

Ugh!  Tested the Mil-Spec capabilities of those headlamps too I'd guess!  Are you at SMORR?  How are the trails?

Not quite there yet. I did run into some Iowa people though.

Arrival


Three generations of Jeep, a Toyota, and a Buggy


Camp is setup and rigs ready for wheeling


Jeff in Rattler


What happened when Andrew attempted Rattler



I love breakfast


Climbing Rocky Road




Doing stuff in Cheezegrator



I heard burgers taste better when you make smiley faces


Headed out for some moist night wheeling


Found a tree to slide into on Black Mamba


All done and loaded up


I had to look at this dirty thing all the way back


Stopping for some cheese


Great! We're in Iowa


Before I washed it


After spending $10. The inside is still a wreck
