I heard tonight that the Black Bear Backwards trip was being planned and they were taking registrations. They decided to move it this year from the same weekend as the FJ cruiser event in Ouray to the following weekend. The first weekend in August. If anyone is interested they should keep an eye open on the local clubs in the area as it is hosted by them.

This post and thread will go very bad for you. You probably should have read the rules before you posted.

This is not a non profit or a for profit. If it is not wanted I would be more than happy to delete the post. I thought people would want to know about this event because it is the only time all year that the Black Bear trail can be legally driven backwards. It is one of the most exciting trail rides in Colorado.

Not trying to pimp my club in any way. You don't have to be a member to go on this trail ride. It use to be hosted by the Telluride Rotary Club, but was given to us to host a few years ago. It is open to anyone that has a vehicle that can make the ride up the trail.

I changed it now. I hope this is better. It really was not my intention to promote anything other than this run. I was just trying to give as much info as I had on the event. Yes there is a registration fee because in order to have this ride they have to purchase insurance and purchase a license from the forest service.

This is not my only reason for being on this site. If you look I registered on here last year. I have made other posts on here before, but very few. Not sure why they are not showing up. Maybe the thread was deleted. I monitor most of what's happing through Facebook and twitter. It's very nice of you all to be so hostile and threatening to someone that doesn't post here much and is trying to be in the your community. Especially someone that is trying to get you "Jeep Enthusiasts" some information about one of the most popular rides in one of the most sought after areas for Jeeping in the world. This ride fills up every year super fast. I just thought it would be a good idea to try to get other people the chance to get in on it. Being that this group and Eddie is all about Jeep, this is something even people in the local area try to jump on super fast. I wanted more people in my Jeep loving community to get first dibs. There was a Subaru club that tried to fill up an entire ride, but they were told no. I have gotten a few friends into this group, some of which that have become popular members. I'm usually not one for posting much or adding to many photos. I read a lot and look for information.

Relax Francis. A lot of people pull the drive-by post just to get a benefit for their own club. Members are just looking out for something in which they have a vested interest.

Don't act like a telemarketer and you won't get treated like one...and follow the rules, they aren't that difficult to understand.

Ummm, "maybe the thread was deleted?" What thread? I just looked and see you have 5 posts to your name and all of them on here on this thread. IF you had any other posts, I would be able to see them even if they were deleted. Guess what - there aren't any. :naw:

I wasn't trying to sound like a telemarketer in anyway. I am a disabled veteran that likes to Jeep and I keep things to the point. I was trying to get as much info as I could out to people if they were interested. I would have been more than happy to accept constructive criticism and fix it in any way. This is part of what is wrong with the world. Instead of constructively pointing it out so I could fix it, I was attacked. And I'm sorry if it seemed that my only reason for being on here was to promote an event, but any observer would have noticed that I joined in May of last year. So I didn't just now join to promote my club or this even. I spend my entire summer jeeping in the mountains. I live in the Jeep capital of the world and I enjoy every minute of it that I can. I was very excited about this event as its something that people from all over the country look forward to every year. I wanted to share it with this community as soon as I could. I wanted you guys to get first dibs at this as it hasn't been advertised at all yet. I really apologize if it seemed that I was trying to recruit for my club or advertise for this event. Honestly my intention was only to get the information out so this Jeep community had a chance to get involved.

I replied last year about the accident on Black Bear and posted the same picture you have on your facebook about the Jeep rolling over. I posted a link to the news article with the picture. I also replied to the posts about your California Trail ride. I was coming back from my friends wedding in OR and passed you guys while you were filling up. I was on I-80 in NV and just noticed as I was on the overpass heading East. It was a gas station on the south side of the interstate. I don't remember exactly what all I said in the post as it was last year. But I was sorry I missed you guys and wished you well on the rest of your trek.

I have real jeep friends in real jeep life. I turned them on to the community. Not through the community. I have a lot of respect for the founder and his projects. That has nothing to do with posting in this forum. I actually do read the articles and how too's, watch the videos and look at Eddie's pictures. As I said before.

If anyone is interested they should keep an eye open on the local clubs in the area as it is hosted by them.

so now this is a great first post. Letting everyone know that there is a cool event and to take a look. Without posting email addresses, club names and links to other sites. Wasn't trying to be a dweeb about it just that if we all are following the rules and someone drops by to promote a cause (or to just let everyone know) with redirection and the likes it makes it hard to not think you are trying to promote.

Anyway if anyone wants to see the actual first post i have it. I'm sure the mods can see the pre edited version if it needs to be added back for meltdown proof.

BTW - Welcome to Wayalife. you should go over to the "give us a wave" section and introduce your self to the forum. Sounds like you may have a lot to offer the community if you live in your Jeep all summer.

Ok. Maybe I was wrong in my Prev post. If you have been here for a year and read a lot then you actually should have seen this coming.

I wouldn't say I live in my Jeep in the summer. I spend every moment I can in the summer jeeping in the mountains. I still have to work during most of the week. But usually Friday, Saturday and Sunday are spent in the mountains jeeping and camping out. I usually freeze my butt off because I like to camp just at or above the tree line. Last year on my July 4th run it was snowing on Imogene pass just after lunch time. I had to put the top back on because I was getting pelted in the face with snow pellets. We tried to open Black Bear late in June but there was still to much snow on the way up to the pass. So far we are expecting an early season because its been so warm here this year. Right now there is only 2' of snow at the top of Red Mountain Pass. That means is not going to be a good summer for California as all their water comes from all around this area.

Did someone move the Sierras to Colorado without telling those of us in California? Sorry but I've come to the rapid conclusion several posts ago that you couldn't tell the truth if your life depended on it.

I refer you back to the sixth sentence in that quote. I don't usually troll the forums. I have ADD and don't usually get very far into them. Not that I don't usually have the time. I just usually get distracted and go off to something else. Squirl.:crazyeyes: AEV came out with new Diff covers. I think I need new tires. I wonder where else I can mount my Multi-band antenna. I don't want to drill any holes cause if I decide to move it. This battery is sure getting hot. I want these new LED Head Lights. Oh... Uniden has a new 980 CB. I wonder how that will fit. All over. Usually maybe a page if Eddie posts a link from FB. Mainly its just the how too's and his vids and pictures.

Let me rephrase. Most of Southern Cali. You know where the water in Lake Mede goes after Las Vegas. It doesn't just pop up out of the desert. Maybe you should go back to Middle School Geography. Continental Divide. Water moves west on the western side. Goes to Lake Powel and then Lake Mede. Gets diverted to southern California for crops and drinking water. Starting to sound familiar now?

Maybe next time you want to pass California Geography, since you live there and all, before you post anything.

Come on the forum and post redirects for some kind of addenda. Check

Claim veteran status like it has anything to do with your posting hoping to get sympathy. Check

Babble about nothing related to anything. Check

Yep. Troll here.

Next you will get all butt hurt about how this forum has a bad rep and all your friends told you not to join and your getting picked on. bla, bla bla.

What will your next excuse be?

OK to help Clear the Air here.. I know Jay personally... And i have known him 10 years.. His original post i'm sure was meant as a no Harm no Foul statement..Saying this i have not seen the unedited post.. But i think He was honestly excited about a up coming event which is pretty rare.. It's once a year which most people say is a pretty badass trail ... Yes he doesn't post here on forums but i know he does alittle on Facebook .. He did make a mistake by not making his first post in "give as Wave" thread...But the fact is he told me about Wayalife which got me into not only the Facebook side but also the forum which i really enjoy being a part off..We have alot of fun here.. And lets face it you can learn alot here as well.. I will promote this Forum to everybody that jeeps .. And there is more of the back story of his vet status and i will leave it at that.. Just trust me he earn our Respect and is dealing with some issue because of it ..Lets please move on from this.. Thanks

I will start off by saying this will be my last post as I can see that I am very unwanted here. Regardless of what I say. I wasn't claiming veteran status for some kind of sympathy. I don't need sympathy. You obviously have no idea what any of it means. I was stating that in my first post I was being very direct and dry. I had no context with these forums really.
Now since your that really kind of special, I will explain for you... I was not calling any one a "Troll". I was saying I don't usually troll the forms. Its a fishing term. Look it up. The babbling was pointing to the fact that I don't because I don't have the attention span. And there was no redirect to any agenda. My post of the lack of snowfall was making conversation and was not a dig at California at all. Unfortunately, due to the lack of a couple of you posting on this threads education and own arrogance, you just prove your ignorance to your own life support system and understanding of the English language. I posted a link from south Californian's own site about the water, hoping to help educate someone and help them not sound so ignorant. I guess in doing so it helped to weed out someone else that has a hard time.
I tried to be polite, I apologized multiple times for my own mistake. I changed the thread, but still I can see you two have nothing to do but badger some one that is trying to get the jeep experience out there. I love my trails here. I love getting involved and showing people the trails here. I love meeting the people from all over the world that come here to jeep. I want more people to come here to help conserve our trails all over the country as the Forrest Service and BLM are constantly trying to shut more an more of them down. Enjoy living in your little center of the universe there. You might want to think about getting all your facts straight before making yourself look like a couple of idiots again though.

I never said I made anyone popular on here. I said I introduced some people to the site who have become popular. Again. Showing you should get your facts straight.

I didn't see the first post before it got edited, but I think the OP did try to correct himself and apologize.

Looks to me that he was trying to do right by the forum after he was shown his error. I don't think he was trolling in any way.

I try to keep out of these thread. Probably my first time posting on one. Don't know the OP at all, but seems like he was alright to me.
