Paul, This was the reason I posted the amended/shortened list.I guess my point is, I believe, the Summit would be a great place to meet other FJC people even if some people really did not want to go on a trail ride with their own FJC, while they were out there! Right?
If people get the impression, that the Summit is only (or mainly) for people who want to do the trails it "might" make some FJC owners more hesitant to go.
Know what I mean?
HOWEVER, if anyone ever intends to go offroad for a second time, they need to start checking things off of LandCruiserSteve's list everytime they go to a 4x4 shop. We as a group seem to want to get new people involved, esp for the Summit, and as such don't look at checklists like you might have for CruiseMoab, or a Rubicon run, etc.
Although as was posted earlier, there are always those people that won't get anything because you or another friend of theirs have it (not counting winches here). The "Can I Borrow" crowd, can I borrow your towstrap, can I borrow your shovel, can I borrow your hi-lift, can I borrow your TP... Kind of like at work, where there is always that one person who never brings their wallet to lunch... lol. (In Colorado, it is generally considered good etiquette to have your own jumper cables in your car...)
LandCruiserSteve, it would be great if you could make a "top 10 things you need after your Summit Hangover" list... So once you hooked them all at the summit, they have the next step to go up to.
NOTE: one thing left off all the lists that should be at the top if you are new -- Attend LandCrusierSteves intro class at the summit!!!!! <---Please!
Back to our regularly scheduled programing...
