Awww Jake - thanks for the mention in your awesome interview! You and Rebecca are truly special people. Love ya man!

And for anyone who has not been fortunate enough to have TrAiLbUs1 (or TrAiLbUsTy for that matter!) spotting you on some gnarly trail, you are missing a true master at his craft. As a newb some time ago, Jake made trails easy to follow and was always willing to explain things without judgement.

Congrats on finally getting MOTM! :wave:

Finally the chosen one.
Congratulations!
maybe next year I'll be able to make it down for really reals..

We were hoping you could make it this year and chuck oranges at me :lol:...sob was bummed when you didn't. You've made a huge impression with us over the years, your insight into politics, religion, music and just life in general has been greatly appreciated.


Congrats man!! You deserve it!! I never REALLY got to meet you at the Summit but I'm sure by the end of the weekend everyone knows who you are! :lol:
Well next year don't be a stranger and hopefully we can fun a trail or two.

Congrats Jake!

I've shared some of the most fun and memorable times of my life with this gentleman and his lovely babe Becca.

Love ya, Mean it!

Pleasure to meet you both last year, do we still have an invite to come pick blueberries up north? :D

It was so great to watch you progress over the couple weeks you started following us. I couldn't believe your driving skill, you followed every line. Practically without a spot, slow and low, just all around one of the best newb drivers I've dealt with. Pretty easy showing you how it's done when you have that natural skill set already lol. The parties and good times we've had with you are some of the best. You can munkay print my rig any time you want :bigthumb: THANKS for the kind words!

Jake you totally deserve it man!! Wheeling with the AZ group was a blast and then some!!

So glad I met you and Rebecca man!! Congrats!
Hell yeah man you fit right in, so glad we met such great people. Also thank you SO FREAKING MUCH for the amazing gift certificate to the the Thai place Siam in Telluride. My family couldn't believe we were treated so well there and it was because of you. Conner gave us an all inclusive multiple course meal there, it seriously had to be like 10 dishes total..and drinks. We were blown away.:rocker:

Wow. Always been one of my favorite people on the blue room. Congrats on member of the month.

God works in mysterious ways, mysteriously close to random chance.
What up waddup!!! Appreciate it bud!

Congratulations Jake, great interview! :cheers:
Yay, congrats Jake, it's about time they honored you!

Thank you thank you!! Dirchick rocks (they should have a smilie for you ;) )

^^^One of the coolest dudes and familes we've ever met, we've traveled with, partied with, laughed our asses off with. So many crazy stories, just insanity. We lost one of the best when they went across the lake to Japan. But that is where life leads you and we are so glad you have built your home there and founds such a great life.

We had a party for Junks not going away party at Anza Borrego in CA during one of the hottest months. We showed up to it being 120 degrees with wind, we are from the desert and had never experienced such heat before. Well we made due and partied our asses off, around mid night I think we decided to do a night run up this gnarly shelf of just powder dirt. First thing Brett went off a cliff hanging on by a couple tires (not a good situation) then Junks went to save him and got stuck in another chute about to go over. Well by this time the chute up to them was slick as snot with fine powder. I couldn't get up it for the life of me (especially with Busty yelling lol) so Junks came down and got in my passenger seat. Screaming at me that I could make it up this hill and reving me up hahhhahahahahah. Well it worked and we powered through the powder to get to brett. I was at an extreme angle in a chute with a tow rope hoping I could retrieve brett without him flipping off this cliff with me attached SO FREAKING SCARY...seriously one of the scariest moments in my life. We got brett back on the trail then went and saved Junks. Needless to say we all went right back to camp to sleep it off. Holy hell that was awesome thanks for the reminder!


Funjunks you will always be close to us no matter the distance. Keep on rocking in the free world!!


Again thank you all for the great memories and adventures!!!

What, you think there's an expiry date on an invite from me? :lol:

We've been scouting out some new areas and they were chock-full of berries. It was all I could do to keep the girls on the atv's... they kept trying to jump off :lol:

I'll send you an email with the link to the photos, etc.

:cheers:

Yes, the interest is there... we'll see how much the bills suck once they start rolling in from the new garage and stamped concrete though :lol: but yes, we definitely want to head down south again. Moab perhaps...

I love the YouTube videos, Jake. I can live vicariously through your adventures as I travel to work and skillfully traverse the speed bumps at Costco.
