They are very very close to cove 1 in the main wash I have there gps location if needed.

Does anyone know if they are out? I got one phone call this morning but it was at work and could not answer and it was an unknown number so I could not call back.

When I pulled up on scott last night they asked if I could help I told them... "im here looking for you, ya ill help you." First words out of his mouth were "I knew the Vjc would come through" he was a nice guy im glad they got out.

The only thing is I didn't get an alert on my phone or e-mail I just saw the post. Did others get the alert or was it on my end?

I keep water in the empty gallon size apple juice bottles. I carry 6 gallons and these can be left in the jeep, without them bursting. I haven't worn one out yet, but I do occasionally leave them with people who are in need, then replace it.

I always carry more but my jeep wasn't really in a driving state so I didn't have all my gear with me.

Check this out http://i751.photobucket.com/albums/xx157/nickwricci/267235535_photobucket_69693_.jpg

I almost crashed into this on the way in some jack hole put it around a blind corner blocking the whole trail, and then at 4:30 am on the way out I almost hit it again so I dragged it all the way back to the dumpsters by the bathrooms. Hopefully the parks people dont get pissed but I didn't know what else to do with it. IT WAS MASSIVE

blocking the whole trail,



That trail looks familiar. Is it right by a speed bump and a porta potty? :smilielol5:

I can't believe someone would leave that shell, looks to be in good shape. LOL, drunken fools might not realize they lost it. When they sober up, they will probably think someone stole it off their vehicle.

Well, thanks for pulling it out of harms way, and keeping the cove area cleaned up. Let's see if the all mighty will allow me to grant you points again for your good deed.
edit: nope, won't let me throw any more points your way, sorry.

I've always been a hooker, my assumption was everyone knew :laugh2:

I was talking about Joe's b-day party. I'm usually off by 10PM, most days.

Hey this is actually JUDOKA...A.K.A Scott. (Cant get my origional account to work so I joined adain as Judoka2. A little help please Joe. HA!) Man I OWE you guys BIGTIME! I cannot tell you how awesome it is to know that when you have no cell service and and you are stuck out in the desert, that just one text msg sends crews scrambling! People die in situations like this and I had no worries at all because I knoe who this club is, and what we are about! I THINK WE MAY TAKE THAT FOR GRANTED SOMETIMES! I mean, where else can you go and know that a mechanical failure does not mean dieing from dehydration in the Arizona desert? I am SO fortunate to know all of you and I count myself blessed. Thank you for the individuals who came out and came through; you know who you are; but most of all, thank you to ALL OF VJC; because it is a comunity effort to bring those in need of rescue home! Thank you so very much!
A little fyi... If you saw the video, the guy on the motorcycle is actually two-time WORLD STUNT RIDING CHAMPION Bill Dixon. He was shocked at the amount of support that was shown to get us out. He came down the hill and said,"Man there are some people out here who must really love you! They have been here for hours searching for you!" You all rock! Taking care of one another is what this club is really about! Thanks to EVERYONE! Judoka

Well I helped this guy at the lake one day in July when he broke his 4x4 and could not get up the hill. He had no $ at the time and I was ok with that. Almost 4 months later he calls me & takes me to dinner gives me some cash and today a week later he shows up at the shop & gives me a 83 Jeep Cherokee 4x4 so I can have a daily driver.
Thank you Scott [Judoka] I will never forget this..Thank you...

Ha! Hey y'all, Joe is Salt of the Earth, ya know! I am glad I had a chance to give back however I could. This man will drop everything to come help anyone! I think that everyone on here should have his number on hand when we wheel. Although we take care of eachother on the trail, it is good to know that there is someone who will come into hell to get you and your rig out if disaster strikes.
OH! I AM ACTUALLY A JEEP OWNER AGAIN FINALLY TOO! 88 Grand Wagoneer. Old, slow, low, and a lil ugly, but nothing lots of money cant fix! Donations being accepted of course. HA!
