Ah the day before the Easter Bunny comes
to your house, and brings your kids candy, enough
so that they are bouncing off the walls and
won’t go to sleep that night. See what
we have to look forward too. The sun was shining,
the weather was nice, and we had 10 Jeeps show
up in the parking lot. A small turnout but it
was the day before Easter! Bill Barnes led the
group, he knows the place better then I do.
"Here comes Bill Barnes and his Rubicon
Jeepin’ down the Bunny Trail hippy hoppy
Easters on it’s way". No joke Bill
was singing that on the trail, Hey Bill are
you going to try out for American idol? .
After Lunch we made a nice Loop and doubled
back, where we took a break and played on
a side trail. After we drove up a long Steep
hill and down the other side. We came across
a fallen tree blocking the road. Nick got
out his chainsaw and made two cuts and we
moved it to the side and placed it in a rut,
then I guided Bill up on it. Later we passed
a rusted out old Ford pickup truck.
Next was “Speedboat” Sharon, she was making a big wave in front of her Jeep and at one point lost site of her Jeeps headlights! “Bathtub” Ben (No relation to Bathtub Lou) was the last to go, he has a fiberglass body with that 2” body lift. The water was still covering his marker lights! After we saw the seaweed we had under our Jeeps we named this the Seaweed trail. Now we continued on up a hill and wondered if we could get out this road? Would we have to turn back? There was a fallen tree blocking the road.
We stopped the Jeeps and got out the hand saws. We cut all the way through the fallen tree and had Tom drive over it. Then he hooked on a tow strap and pulled on the tree. He broke the rest of it and
pulled it out of the way. We all got in our Jeeps and headed out of the dirt road and back on pavement. Out trip was know over and we said our good byes.
Sandy M., Bill Barnes, Nikki B., and Jereme C.. I’d also like to thank myself
Rich Banfield and everyone else who showed up to make this Jeep run.
