          Phil and Irish style have real jobs. John is floating around somewhere. MD, who the fuck knows what he's up to. If his work history is anything like his racing history, he's already out and waiting on recovery. Krusty left us sad a few years ago and Bender, well he's Bender. I lost track of him. Hobie? Probably laid up on an island at this point. Flash? I wish him well. That guy was great. Theres a few honorary ones too. I know at one time Krusty said membership might increase, but I'm not sure anyone wanted part of the hazing ( you know who you are Amanda). BTW, Phil wants his shirt back.

              Lost track of Bender? What planet have you been on? He is all over the place and TV star famous.

                I used to talk to him a lot. Aside from wheeling, we had another thing in common....we both grew up in Yosemite Valley.

                I wrote an Obit for him in CRAWL back when I still worked for the magazine.

                    Krusty was an icon. They had a memorial for him on the trail and left a sign.

                        RE:Todd retired from the U.S. Navy and is back in New Mexico. I believe he's living in Roswell. I see him and his wife post up on Facebook.

                          Yep I'm fb friendswith Re: Todd. Love that dude. Benders may not be around the wheeling scene,but once a bender, always a bender. Same thing goes with clampers. I've met and hung out with most of them, and they are all awesome peeps.

                              JeepRecoveryTeam = Dave Cole = head of KOH
                              Dtoy = John James = still wheeling the marlin crawler xchassis, was out at the nonevent with his son
                              MD = Eric Anderson = still around, still has his xchassis, but was at the nonevent in a spec chasis
                              Air Ride = Air Bag = Mike Hendrix = still making chasis but has moved onto gold panning
                              Aaron = doing a whole lot of taco chinook stuff
                              Bender = didn't get season 3 of his show picked up, moved back to AL and head fab/r&d at motobuilt (same owner as BlueTorch, Dan).

                              Re:Todd = moved to NM, wheeling a big yellow jeep now.
                              Lemooreon = retired from Navy, believe he went out to NM somewhere close to todd

                              Offroad Joe = still has his buggy, doesn't wheel as much
                              Big Rob = moved up to Wyoming or Montana or one of those cold states, bought a purple jimmy's chassis, haven't seen him in a few years.

                              I think there are 3 or 4 more members that I'm not as familiar with. At least one of them ended up with Krusty's old rig when Bender moved to AL.
