I'm with Tim. What really speaks for itself is the truck, the Converse hightops and those oh-so-stylish Raybans. btw, Jason, in that newsletter pile there was a CIMBA Cassette newsletter from 1999 if you (Doug?) would want it for historical reference.

2000.... We were really worried that the Y2K bug would render our trail tools inoperable. :crazy:

That truck is so fucking rad!!

And that map is from the Ranger Larry days... back when Beanie and Schroll and Mike and Don and I were building trail out there (kind of officially)... shortly followed by stacy and jason. If you didn't know where the singletrack was back in the late 90's early 00's you weren't gonna find it. Ranger Larry packed heat!! The map even still has the old Tazewell county campground on it.... memories.... I remember riding my blaze orange, splatter painted GT Outpost out there... with ONZA and suntour components (thumb shifters of course!!)... Avocet gel saddle with the protective plastic corners... biopace rings... and clips and straps with old shimano stiff soled shoes with no SPD mounts.... and my TCO (tall cool one) seatpost... rockin.

You remember seeing these on the trail - the original carbon bad-boy:
