What an awesome weekend!! I seriously can't remember the last time I've had so much fun with such great people! Huge thanks to Jared for putting this together!!
Made it home safe around 8:30 last night after passing three wrecks, one of which occurred only moments ahead of me and was almost certainly fatal for at least one person. Hope everyone here made it safe and sound. If pics have been uploaded to the Facebook group, could someone post the link in here to the album or post the pics here as well for those of us who don't have FB? Thanks in advance and can't wait til next year!

Following that thing was an exhilarating experience and the sounds, noises, and smells were pure petrolhead heaven!

Hah, on the way back to the lodge Mr Bill passed me on a straight because the gassy exhaust got a bit old after a while. It gurgles and coughs and runs rich in sharp corners for some reason, related to fuel sloshing around in the float bowls.

Seems like just about every road in that area is just all corners, all the time. So much fun.

It smells great for ten minutes. Then it's terrible.

hahaha good times. there's brake dust clots on the rear of the R, don't have much for expectation on those pads I just installed (and they didn't really get much of a workout up there, I kept my shenanigans and driving to a relative minimum)

Indeed, Bayleigh is the unsung heroine of Mountain Meet. She and Jared put in a lot of time/effort before everyone shows up. Many thanks to them.

This.

Jared is a very lucky guy to have a wife that puts up with and helps out with this sort of thing.

Also, chubby baby Gant is absolutely beautiful.
Good job you two.
