Here is what one of the folks on the 4x4 run wrote.
In the ride photos you can't miss that little yellow bug. Proof that a VW bug can go four-wheeling!! Jerry and I were with the tailgunners, the Weimerts. We were sitting at the bottom of "Jim's transmission hill" watching what was happening at the top of the trail and listening to Betty "spot" for Mike over the CB. At one point it looked to us as though the bug was going to tip over backwards and there was an audible sucking in of breath by both Barb and me. I had sweaty palms just watching and knew Wendy probably had her eyes closed watching from above. Anyway you can bet that Mike provided the most excitement for the day. Can a VW bug go on 4WD trails? You betcha!!
