Here's a preview of some stuff that Brian has put together: 
This page is dedicated to the real heroes of our club, our rigs.  Yes, yes, the start of the run involves a lot of high faluten talk at the gas station while we all fill up.  We talk nuts and bolts, and tires, and lifts, and travel and approach/departure angles, and horsepower, and accomplishments of the past.  But later that day when the skill was all talk, and the luck has run out - liquid courage has us hammering the right pedal, then our hero (or heroine) really pulls us through. 
Well here they are - Click on any picture to enlarge it. 

X-Pres Chris Troeger.  A staunch supporter of the right pedal.  His Bronco always pulls through.  From the dunes to the hard crawls, this Bronco has what it takes and Chris knows how to drive it and he is one to never to turn down a challenging trail !!

Jeff Wayco, in his Samurai named "Frisky".  He is always willing to go where "Jeeps" fear to tread. Follow him and you'll end up testing all of your ability...or you'll end up lost.  All kidding aside...this guy is fun to wheel with !!

Ken Cromby.  Mild mannered.  Father. Husband.  Yeah, and then you hear the maniacle laughter as he gives it right pedal action.  Watch out Ken, look who's driving now!

Briggs Wayco, pushes his Samurai to the  limit and loves to "wow" the crowds in the "trenches" at TDS every year.  This guy is really fun to wheel with, hit the trails with him and you won't regret it !!

X-Pres Dick Hoppe started wheeling back in the 60's and is always showing up us rowdy youngsters.  Pure style, AND A V-8 CRAMMED INTO THAT LIGHTWEIGHT WWII RELIC! Keep wheelin Dick.

This guy isn't in our club.  Wish he was.  Man what a cool rig.  Not sure this guy even needs a right pedal.

Long time member Rog Sorg built this rig...and Dude - - Thats a Blazer on steroids !!!
Nothing stops this thing.

Brian Godlis built his rig to go ANYWHERE !!!  He's even done the Gatekeeper at Calico.  His family always joins him and cause his girls started wheeling with him from the time they were infants...they are screaming when the rest of us would be !!

Brian Ford keeps his rig running tip top and loves hitting the Dusey and the Rubicon trails !

Barney Valeska has been Everywhere..and for the moment has "retired" from wheeling...but we know that it gets in our we're sure he'll be back on the trails.

Loralyn Wayco can really wheel her rig.  Her husband Jeff built it for her and she fondly named it "Fluffy". She has had her on two wheels a few times, but has managed not to go over...horray !!!
