Thank you. I was just thinking that you are so very fortunate to have that kind of wide open geography for miles and miles. I live in a concrete jungle and we just have hundreds of miles of wall to wall to wall cities.! I envy you and applaud you all.

I just got home from Moab, we stayed in Twin Falls Idaho last night and were on the road all day today. I did see some of the pics while stopping for gas. Great time and looking forward to next year.

Are you talking about this one Johnny?

If so, I am pretty sure that is David, Frankensubysyncro, our Syncro Yahoo Group moderator...

That is the question of the day Hans. The thread was "booted" you could say. I have an inquiry waiting with the Samba Polizei that should be answered soon. I hope to get it back out of oblivion, but in the meantime, they have moved the thread to here:
Booted 2012 Solstice thread


Looks like the thread was moved to the "Shows/Events/Camping/Clubs" group. That's where I found it.

Hey Steve, if you follow some of the newer threads that just popped up, you will see some incredible stuff, pulled off by two wheel Vans as well. David just posted some Chicken Corners footage with plenty of 2wd vans, and that is a significant trail even for Moab. I am happy to open registration early if you will commit to come up and play with us for Solstice 2013?! Yes?


Where is it posted? I only watch the vanagon/eurovan forum.

You can also find the 2011 on that same Island of misfit threads:

Booted 2011 Solstice thread (Another)

I kind of get the movement on the threads, but there is a ton of incredible stuff going on, and throwing them over to no-man's land seems like quite an injustice for the Vanagon forum members. There are also plenty of "meet-up" threads that exist here in the regular Vanagon forum, so I am expecting the Solstice threads to come back to life, or the other meet up threads to get sacked out of existence as well. Anyway, I have asked for some clarification from the Moderation Members. Ambiguity is not playing in the favor of the forum members on this subject. Rolling Eyes

All amazing photos, but that photo of Corkins with one wheel in the air while he is staring out the window thinking about the country of VanisTan and Wasser enhancements is the classic Chris that I have happily befriended and dug over these last two Solstice events.

Thanks for Posting the great pictures Hans. There were so many outstanding trips this year, led by very experienced guides and vans. I would have to count, but I am guessing this is still just a portion of those trails we traveled this year.
