    Hey all. I hate that this is my first post, but alas, I can't change that. My name is Russ. I was a friend of Connor's. We worked together for a number of years, and stayed in touch and 4wheeled together, most recently running Kelly Flats together in September. It really warms my heart to see so many wanting to come out to celebrate his unfortunately short life. I'll be there Friday. Thank you @T-Rex266.

    Yea I posted a few today. Hit me pretty good and hard. He was supposed to come over to the house Sunday afternoon. Kinda wondered why he didn't text to say he wasn't coming over. I figured I'd hear from him at some point this week.

    I talked to Connor last 9/15th and during our conversation he mentioned something about going to Kelly Flats. Guess he used to go there a lot. I've never been but apparently Connor liked to go there a lot. Some of us should get together and make a Kelly Flat run sometime.

    Definitely incredible how many lives Connor touched and how this community comes together. Makes me proud to be a member here.

    I'll raise a glencairn of the good stuff on Friday evening up here in the great white north.

    I'll upload the videos from that day of him. Probably happen tonight.

    And just to clarify, it's 7:30 on friday night, correct? There are a couple friends of mine and Connor's who might like to join if that's alright.

    Can't make it in person but will tilt a cold from Texas on Friday night in honor of Connor. Didn't know him but we would have gotten along just fine, I imagine.

    Lol no, Kelly Flat's is not a Tundra friendly trail, at least not his. His Tundra was a 2WD. He was in his 4Runner. I blew a front diff in my T100 on that trip.

    Less than 24 hours. Looks like there is a couple WeldWerks (Greeley beer) on tap there, including a sour from WeldWerks. Street side parking can be a pain, but fortunately the Keg House is located right in front of a very large parking garage, with free parking.

    As promised, I’ve started uploading videos from Connor and My last wheeling trip, on September 16. This first video is kinda longer, but my commentary is very fitting for now. I was telling another friend about when Connor and I first met, and his first project, his Metro lol.

    That’s pretty amazing you have a recent video. I’m very sorry to all who knew him, and hope all friends and family find peace. Terribly sorry.
    He looks waaaaaaaay too Fing young to part from this world. :(
    It’s awesome of you all to get together to celebrate Connor.
    RIP Connor

    If I get a winch on my 2WD, can I overland with the BASTRDs and SGU?!
    PSA: Y'all take care not to tilt so many for the missing homies that you don't make it home.

    Lyft and Uber if you have to. We don't need to lose any more friends off this one. Love you all.
