Where in Parker? I'm just below Parker in The Pinery...
Just of Lincoln and N Jordan at a club-members place. Hope you can join us!

I'm interested in getting involved in wheelers for the wounded here in San Diego, CA. Do you know who I could contact? I'd also like to get involved in wheelers for the disabled. Great job you guys/gals.:bigthumb:
The Hummer-X Club, SoCal Chapter, is hosting the event in CA. If you go to the WFTW site and link to the forum, there is a section for California with all the details.

We'll also have an OBDII scan tool to check out codes.

This Sunday is looking good... Jalapeño poppers and all!

I'd love to, but since I'm the one organizing the Colorado host club's fund raising and main event, I kinda have some responsibilities. Have fun! :cheers:

Thank you all for a rewarding day of work and fun. I look forward to some pics of our escapades.

I especially want to thank Matt (mgoose82) for the use of his wonderful space in Parker, and Brian (thefatkid) for taking his only day off and spending it working on our rigs.

Molly (Lysmachia) and Doug (mrdoug) made us fantastic vittles, and Jim (dr350jja), Don (Don_G) and Willie (Willie) did a great job helping get the site set up, and then working in and out of the hot sun.

Thank you to all of the other folks who helped out, made generous donations, got their rigs worked on and others who just stopped by.

See you again on the trail soon!
