Roughwheelers did it again!
...First place in the money making that is... High
Desert games were a sucess with TRW bringing in $171. Thanks
to the "wet T-Shirt Gang", Fearless, and ALL members who got
TOTALY DUSTED running the game.
Jose Cuervo Pays Visit
Friday afternoon Jose Cuervo and "friends" paid a visit
to the campsite and were warmly welcomed by several members
of TRW. The "Wet T-Shirt Gang" was formed by Rhonda, Santa
Fe, Cupcake (aka Lu-eeeze), Ziplox, and Casper. Pappy tried
on a double barrel sling shot stuffed by Scarecrow using
socks (now we know why Cupcake has an open account at
Frederick's). High beams were shining during day light
hours. Rhonda wanted us to "Call one one" and Knucklehead
was smooching on everyone.
Saturday after the run for the day, Toni & Snoppy
started mixing the Strawberries and tequilla. Iceman
provided the blender, and Chicken Hawk reallowcated the Ruff
Rock Run generator, since it was close by & all. When
Chef Andy came back to get the generator for dinner, Iceman
was utilized for power. By the way, Andy did get a drink out
of the deal.
Gale Force Winds Hit Camp
But it doesn't stop TRW. Friday & Saturday
afternoons & evenings winds rock campers and stirs up
dirt. Events carried on as usual.
The Achey Breaky does a Little More
Reported damages from the Saturday morning run were;
Scarecrow ending up with a bent tie rod, Fence Killer (Trail
Princess) lost her rear locker, Pappy and Oreo had front
ring shackles bend backwards. Chicken Hawk bent a tie rod
and lost the steering stabilizer. And Montego did his damage
At the Horseshoe Pitching game, he popped the right front
tire off the rim.
Barbeque Required "Formal Attire"
Saturday Night barbeque was attended by TRW's dressed in
the "Sunday Best" overalls and bandannas. Fearless came to
town in his bright red Union suit withthe flap open,
cowboyboots and hat. Rhonda forgot her blouse but the blank
brassiere withthe overalls and blue bandanna would make and
one's Best Dressed list. Casper and Santa Fe were hits with
their short dresses and hiking boots. All the men are headed
for the cover of GQ in their overalls, hats, and bandannas.
And the Grand finale was the "Poison Gas" stickers on all of
the rear ends. Jeff FOxworthy would have been proud of this
bunch. Photos have been taken and bribes are
Raffle a Sucess for TRW
Casper won the Warn Winch, and Rooster
got himself some "fru stuff". Chicken Hawk snagged a couple
of T-shirts and every aduly raffle prize winner got a little
bottle of Jose Cuervo from the RoughWheelers. "AND FROM THE
A special mention goes out to One Eye'd Jack for all his
hard and selfless work for TRW's and the High Desert
Roundup. He set up TRW's campsite, helped cook at the Ruff
Rock Run Cafe, run games, and did Trail Boss on Pumpkin
Eater. He also did the Cal 4 Wheel Auction. Fantastic Job
Keith. The Ruff Rock Run Cafe had more fantastic help;
Knucklehead, Oreo and Sandy Grahm. Knucklehead learned how
to "do" pancakes and Oreo did a great job on the Ribeye
steaks. Thank you. If it weren't for these people we'd of

Eye's Jack and Jason Bunch were first in the potato Stick
race, Strap race and probably several others. Rhonda and
Toni won the First for Horseshoe pitch, female. Santa Fe and
Paul won 1st place horshoe pitch for couples.
Etc. Etc. Etc.
"Wrong Road" Rooster made it to the top of a ridge and
lost the trail, calling out on the radio from the middle of
the pack; "We're on the wrong road!" .. Jason only got stuck
a few times... Fearless lost the snugtop on the pickup to
the wind and stoved in the edge of the roof. It was put back
on and is now added to the windshield on the repair list.
... 10 Ball and Chicken Hawk went up a rough wash, that
Iceman wouldn't, come to find out that it was NOT part of
the trail... Rooster tagged Iceman's girlfriend as "Cool
Aid"... Chicken Hawk is on his way to Kosovo, and hopefully
he will be back by christmas. Our thoughts and prayers go
Fun was had by all that attended this
years's High Desert Roundup. Hope to see everyone at the
next Roughwheeler event.
