Captain Kickback

River Run 2002 or Dawg Daze Disco

Of course, I will only need to post these photos once. After next years trip just look at this years trip and you will not be able to tell the difference! Sorry for the delay processing this shit, it ain't chump change. Though I learned how to batch process the images which saves hella time.

I had this O.G. family lady say"I can tell everyone is getting older from the Livewire crew because of the cars. You guys used to all come in on old old 4WD trucks and now you are showing up in SUV's, station wagons and (god forbid) mini vans!" That was funny.

Lots of photos. Take your time. The Captain
