On Friday May 30th, 2008, I headed to Tri-Cities with my daughter Mandy & son Doc to camp out for the for the Peak Putters Juniper Dunes Run they were doing on Saturday. On the way, I stopped a BobRacing’s house to pick up some tires for my 99 XJ.
I decide to camp at the Upper Parking Area were the run was starting the next morning. Some guy was parked in the middle of the road and I had to drive off around him. I got mt 2 wheel drive pickup stuck with the XJ on the tow bar. I could not get the tow bar off because of it’s steep angle down to the truck. This guy walks out of a camper and moved his truck out of the middle of the road. He didn’t bother to say anything to me. I was screwed. I had to have my young daughter steer my truck as I pulled in back out of the holes with the Jeep hooked to the tow bar. I was then able to unhook the tow bar and drive around to the front. I hooked up a strap to the truck and pull the truck with the Jeep as my daughter again steered. We got the truck on the road and then I drove each one vehicle into camp down the road.
We had dinner around the fire and then the three of us slept in the back of the pickup with the 4 tires.
The next morning we ate breakfast, aired down the Jeep tires, and waited for the Peak Putters. As we were getting ready, there was a little snake hanging out. The kids played with what the call, “Sand Hoppers”.
The Peak Putter showed up to the run and brought there Race Truck. It was a very cool built Ford Ranger.
This was a very fun event. Thank you Peak Putters for the invite!
