Hey guys, you rock! Id like to name you all but you know who you are. You guys supporting me at Jeep Beach was great! I hope you guys had as much fun as I did!

THANK YOU to all the Jeep Beach JK OWNERS SPONSORS AND VENDORS! Your generosity rocked this event! We really appreciated your support and look forward to seeing you there next year!!

I didnt do this alone, a BIG thank you to the Mid Florida Jeep Club members a couple who are on this forum especially

The JK Owners banner was flying proudly and there was no doubt that the JKO kicked ass! Thanks so much to my great friends here at the JKO! Thanks Lance!!

A SPECIAL thanks to my new best friends Hatch and Maral (Safari Straps). They flew coast to coast to attend Jeep Beach. I know there are alot of great people on here but you couldnt meet a nicer couple. They are good people and I honestly call them true friends. Just wait until Hatch unveils the new design!

Thank you to all the JKO that attended. it was a great event! Some of you had some very long drives and a thank you cant express enough how we feel for the support you gave us. I cant wait to see all your pictures and get mine posted up as well. Dont forget to go to the Mid Florida Jeep Club website to get to the link for the photographer so you can see all 700 professional pics he took.

So you want a number?

Saturday - 303 paid registered participants and DOES NOT include sponsor/vendor Jeeps, VIP's or the Mid Florida Jeep Club. Total Jeeps was around 375-400

Sunday - on the Beach! The parade on the beach was 4.5 miles long! YES 4.5 miles long Jeep to Jeep! There was a total of 218 paid Jeeps and DOES NOT include sponsor/vendor Jeeps, VIP's or the Mid Florida Jeep Club. Total Jeeps was 273!

PUDDLZ/CHRIS HANSON and CREW - we pass the torch so rock out JK SUMMERFEST!

My wife and I had a blast. I finally got her behind the wheel. The easy to hard "trails" helped ease her into it. She was ready for anything after that. :D I think she wants her own Jeep after this event. It was good to finally meet a bunch of JKO's finest. As usual I didn't get many pictures, too busy having fun.

Awesome vids! Track 4 was our favorite.

There were bigger rigs than Rotor's and H8's that struggled because they let testerone drive the Jeep. These two took their time and listened to the spotters. Awesome job!

I had absolutely one of the best times EVAH!

Jenna and I were laughing all the way home about the stories of certain individuals at our hotel who crashed a Scrap booking convention and were making coctails for the lil old ladies who were were still scrap booking at 2 am!!


Seriously though... what a show and what a turn out!!

RubiKong won it's first award, People's Choice.. totaly blew me away! I also won a 25.00 Shell Gas card sponsored by bfj aka tambil so I was told. THANK YOU!

The raffles went on forever, thats how much stuff they had to give away.. not lil shat either.. all great prizes... best raffle EVAH!


I took TONS of video and pictures that I will slowly get up this week.. gonna take forever to edit it.

The beach parade.. only one word to describe... FAWSOME!

JKO was definitely representing.. I think I even spotted some JKFers.. one person who will go unamed even brought me his balled up JKF stickers and bought 2 JKO's..Way to go *** . By the way, your rig fawking rocks!

Gonna be hard to top Jeep Beach 09 next year... but i think as long as Rooster is involved it will 'Gitter Done'.

What an outstanding performance by Mid Florida Jeep Club!! http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v114/hitmoney/smilies/Bow.gif

Jeep Beach was AWESOME, THANK YOU for your tremendous effort MFJC to organize and pull off an event of this scale. Some of the best fun we've had since we bought our Jeep! Thanks to all of the vendors for taking lots of time to talk to us, and for TONS of raffle items. I can't wait til next year! (No, really, I can't wait til next year, when is the next event?) :D

Carnage for me was a cracked windshield on the drive home. :pissed:

Too many Jeeps to get the full perspective. You would need an airplane to capture the size of the event.

These girls were literally giggling non stop while they played in there Bruiser Buggy. (So would most of us)
http://i187.photobucket.com/albums/x164/SeminoleMike/Jeep%20Pictures/Jeep%20Beach%202009/SANY2534.jpg

I was the first JK to hit the big hill in the morning before they moved all the rocks into a pile and made it easy. You had to control the way the rocks would roll under the tires. It was still pretty easy, but there was a big rock in the middle at the top that you had to try and get a tire on, unless your name is Hitmoney, then you just push the Curry D60 over the top. The big JK's definitely shined on this obstacle. Lots of really built older rigs struggled hard.

HEY EVERYBODY!!!
It was super great meeting everyone from JKO. I wish I could have spent some more time with you all (btw, did the strip club visit ever happen?) but I couldn't seem to get coordinated with anyone. Very frustrating. Guess that was the benefit of staying @ the Holiday Inn?
Super great event. Probably the best event I have ever been to with the Jeep so far! I was going to post a HUGE post here about it....

BUT CHANGED MY MIND!!! I can do that you know...

look for the write up in The Orlando Jeep Club NEWSLETTER (that no one reads) that shall have pictures and articles and all kinds of things!!! Should be at least a 2 page write up after all the pictures and write up's!! Thanks Rooster for the stats! (btw Rooster, what was the total Jeeps that registered from our club?)
I will make sure to get a copy posted up here as soon as it's done!

Congrats to the ENTIRE ORLANDO JEEP CLUB for the most club participation award and our very own ChopTop for "Most abused".

BTW.. I didn't win anything.. well, a T-shirt... BUT IT DIDN'T MATTER!!! THE EVENT WAS INCREDIBLE!

Woah! That is a BADASS JK! It should have won best of show!!! hehehehe

OK...seriously, Rooster, you and I talked. I dont have much to add other than repeating what I told you already - Great freaking job. Folks, when he told me last year he wanted to do this at the speedway, I thought to myself, yeah right, he's dreaming. And dont get me wrong, I dream big too. But damnit man - you pulled it off!

Rooster has set the bar so freaking high for Jeep events in Florida. Mark my words right here and now: Jeep Beach, one of these days, will be an event the size of Bike Week. The entire city will be flooded w/ jeeps and they will travel across the nation to get there. You tell em Karnuvore predicted it.

Mad props man. I had a great time. I spent an assload of money trying to win stuff and didnt win - but that doesnt matter. There was a charity involved in all that $ right? Hospice? Fair enough lol. Rooster, your rig incredible. I knew you had been working on it and it had changed a lot - but damn man.

Mid Florida Jeep Club has put everything in perspective for our tiny lil club lol. We now realize we are just a buncha hicks who like jeeps and have a hard time organizing a garage sale, much less an event of that magnitude lol. No worries lol.

OK - some of my favorite memories, honestly, were not truly JEEP related, but more related to the JEEPERS. I got to meet some people I have known by screen name only FINALLY. Hitmoney, it's nice to finally have shaken the hand of the man who was instrumental in me getting my lift. I walked up to this guy and said "What is that some piece of **** 6" Pro Comp Long arm kit on your jeep?" And, having never met me in person, he starts laughing, cuz he knew it had to be me. Then I sit there talking to this guy next to me, very nice guy, for about 10 minutes and finally he says "are you on JKowners?" It was H82W8T. Then I met moose, databyte, Rotorhead, BigJerm, the list goes on. Sweet!

And man did our lil Jeep-club-that-could represent. We may be a bunch of Fukc ups, but man do we know how to Fukc up! We partied til the wee hours of the morning 3 nights in a row and made quite a few new friends. Highlight was making good friends w/ Mike from Jeep Hut who swore to us (in a sh!tty drunken state) that he is going to join the club an start up a Georgia chapter lol. We told him, we could hook up w/ some mexicans and start running drugs through our club chapters - make millions. Screw the Hells Angels! lol.

That same night, I followed Jake (jester) through a convention hall of full of scrap bookers, at 2 am. Picture it: he was naked from the waist up, finger in his belly, pushing a luggage dolly full of beer, trying to get the old ladies drunk while I played mandolin behind him. They snapped about 1000 pics of him and told him he was going to be in scrap books all over the nation.

Night before, that maniac gets on the hotel radio (left unattended at the front desk) and says "Base to Carl. Base to Carl. Come in Carl." He was calling Carl the security gaurd - whose real name was Raymond but we had decided he looked more like a Carl. We had gotten to know him earlier as he came out to the pool after we were screaming at the top of our lungs. OK, I was. If you could have seen Carl's face when he came running in the front door saying "GET OFF THAT RADIO!" Then, Jake decides to badger Carl into giving us the 18 pack of bud light Carl had found left unattended while doing his rounds. Carl gave it to us, asking us to please go up to our rooms.

Before we went though, we left the following note on the front desk: Hi. My name is Jose Dosil (crazy x on this website). I need a wake up call at 5:30 am. If I dont answer, call back at 6:00 am. Thanks. I am in room #...." You get the idea.

Man what a blast. I have about 10 other stories simliar to those - but those were FUN. Our jeep club, small as it is, got to know one another quite well this weekend. One of our member's now has the rank "I Sh!t Crab Traps" on our forum.

Awesome event. Jeep Parade was GREAT! Good idea on turning around going the other way. I high fived Jeeps the entire way.

Cant wait til next year.

Guys - thanks for all the wonderful comments! Our club put a lot of HARD WORK into this event and it's great to hear that all enjoyed it. We do have a few things that we learned this year and will look to improve to make next year even better! So, PM Jeff or I if you have ideas or just plain things you didn't like - or better yet - complete the survey we'll be sending out by end of week (and, yes, Karn - there is a deadline - Mr. Arrive at the Beach Parade at 8:59 - you just did make it - LOL!).

Seriously, we appreciate all the comments and I am cutting and pasting all of these to share with the non-JK owners of our club.

We're looking to grow this every year and the only way we can is with your support and feedback on how to make it better. And, Karn - we are shooting for your prediction - Jeep Week is our goal!

Thanks so much for your support and ya better be there next year!

(and, yes, Karn - there is a deadline - Mr. Arrive at the Beach Parade at 8:59 - you just did make it - LOL!).

LOL - now that it's all said and done: I think I was legally drunk when I rolled in at 8:59! Seriously Millie incredible job. You guys should be so proud. Hell, I'm proud and all I did was drink beer and annoy scrap bookers!

Jeep Week. I like it.

Great video Lawdog. Who is that band?

Jester

Yup... you want a party... invite Karn and Jester.

BTW... Jester didn't look so hot on Sunday morning..... LMAO!

I started feeling better half way home after I drank about a half gallon of Gatorade.

Karn and I sure can party because we're professionals. I had an absolute blast and I am very pleased to have gotten to meet many of the peeps I only knew by screen names. Our club is small but we sure had a great time and like Dave said we got to know eachother better.

The scrap booking thing I can't really explain. When we left for dinner I told Jose (Crazy X) "When we get back I'm delivering beer to those women." They had been scrap booking (whatever that is) since Friday. So when we got back and I was even drunker it was a done deal. I loaded my beer cooler and my Crown Royal and proceeded to make them smile. Sure some of them were just plain old rude but the majority were pleased as hell.

The topless trip with my finger in my belly button was purely the sick twisted thinking of Dave (Karnuvore). I begged Dave to come with me and play the madolin while I delivered liquid happiness and he refused. Then Mike (Shrek) said, "I bet you would go with him if he took his shirt off." Dave quickly said he would go but added the finger in the belly button, as if topless were not enough.

Once we were in the scrap booker banquet hall Dave started playing and I started passing out liquid happiness. At one point Dave actually yelled "Belly Button!!" because I had accidently taken my finger out for a split second. It was a fricking blast and I wasn't at all embarrased (liquid courage) until I saw the video that Mike took the next morning. Yea.......dream on....I deleted it as soon as I got my hands on it.

What a great trip. I can't wait till next year. Rooster my hat goes off to you and your amazing club. You guys can throw one hell of a party.

Just got back a couple of hours ago. To Rooster and Mid-Florida Jeep Club. THANKS!!! Had an awesome time everything was great and I have to add that my wife loved driving the courses and my 5 yr old son loved the bounce house.

x2 with what everyone else has posted regarding next year and I'm ready to sign-up for 2010.

P.S. Even though it was hotter than hell, it was perfect timing, this morning there was a massive downpour as I left Daytona.

Can't imagine the how much work went into this. It can't be said enough what a great job MFJC did. The obstacle courses were fun and the venders were great, I think my buddy finally figured out what he wants to do to get his YJ fixed back up after talking to them. And that was quite a sight Sunday morning!

Milli (MILGRE) was the brains behind the scene. She put in a lot of hours. All of the paperwork, coordination and planning was due in large part to her and I personally want to thank her! Greg the other half of MILGRE was the course designer and builder. I know for some it wasnt as extreme as they wanted or there was no mud but next year just wait and see what we come up with! Also wanted to thank the wife Kelly for putting up with me for the last 6 months, taking control of the raffles and for letting me spend so much damn money on the habit!

Rooster, Why did I get a $25 gas card? Clark you and Hitmoney won a $25 gas card because you turned in your peoples choice award card. How funny that Bill donated them and I drew yours and Hitmoneys. I swear I had no idea I just stuck my hand in and drew them out. Guess we kept it in the family! lol

Great video Lawdog. Who is that band?

It's "Beer Cans" by Melvern Taylor. Some of the stock music from Photobucket's remix program. Never heard it before, but after hearing the opening line and reading Jacked Up's exploits...well, it was appropriate.

First of all.. I just want to say that was one hell of an event. I'm already itching for next year. Going back to work really sucked as well, meaning having to put all the doors back on the jeep.

Karn and Jester forgot to mention that I was sharing the room with Jose(Crazy X). My spooning partner. I was special enough to answer the phone, but my attempt to prank them failed due to someone unplugging the phone. Be careful letting Jester set up the hotel arrangements. He will make sure that he gets the pent house suite, while you take the storage closet for the weekend.

If i have found the extra cooler in the right vehicle from my good neighbors FLLAWDOG and MOUSER. It would have been a 24/7 beer fest.

Side note, for our new GA friends. Mike(Jeep hut). I am going to buy you a tracking device for your flask so next time you will be able to find it or put a chain on that thing..lol.

I know this has been said by many but Rooster thanks for the event you did a bang up job. It was well worth the trip from Colorado to attend this event and I definitely will be there again next year. I recommend anyone that can travel down to this event should do so. I am happy to say I got to meet Rooster, Hitmoney, Safari Straps, Brad at Overbuilt Customs and many more. Without a doubt all of these guys were great to talk to as well as their hospitality. My plan being I am currently JK-less is to buy the one I want down there in Florida and drop a Hemi in and go to the event before driving it back to Colorado. I also have say it was a great pleasure to be able to attend this event with Ben Hedrick and ride and drive his JK with the Hemi in it. Thanks to all for the wonderful time I had.
