I was jokin' about it in another thread, so why not?

1) Admitting we are powerless with out our tools, bailing wire, duct tape, and BFHs. The cracks in our frame have become too big to patch.

2) Coming to realize a longer and greater wheeling trip can only return us to our sanity.

3) Made a decision to turn our keys and tires over to diff. lockers, as we understand them.

4) Made a search and fearless inventory of our spare parts.

5) Admitting to ourselves, our friends, and God, that we could have taken a better line.

6) Be ready to have rocks and trees remove all the defects we know as "lack of body damage."

7) Humbly ask Him to keep you on 4 tires.

8) Make a list of all the people you've wheeled with, and show them all up.

9) Directly make ammends to all the people you've forgotten to return tools to. Except when to do so would require them to injure you.

10) Continued to take invintory of tools and cold beer, and when we're out of beer or can't find a damn 3/8th extension, admitting when we have wronged.

11) Sought through research and wrenching to improve our contact to the ground, as we understand it.

12) Having had a balls to the wall hill climb as results of these steps, we try to carry this message to non-junkies, and to practice these principles in our own lives.


God grant me the knowledge and ability
to loathe the things I cannot change,
and the courage to build the biggest most bad ass rig,
because I just don't know when to stop

Living one trip at a time;
Enjoying many boulders at a time;
Accepting river crossings only as the pathway to more obsticles;
Taking, as He did, this unpaved world
as it is, but not with out a fight;
Trusting that the winch will make all things right
If I surrender my traction to forces greater then myself;
That I may be reasonably happy with the carnage
and supremely happy with showing everyone up
at the next trip.

Amen

The first part needs to be on a shirt and the second half needs to be a good sized sticker. :icon_thumby:

I'd represent both the shirt and sticker. RBV logo front left chest/12 step on back and a sticker of the prayer on my back window!

I'm glad these went over well. I figured most people would think I'm a dick cause I was ripping off the Twelve Steps and a prayer. (I've attended AA and NA so I think I have the right to.)

You've got my permission to make shirts, stickers, hats, what ever!

I just want a free one.

I don't have any of the T-Shirt hook ups I had back in High School for all the ridiculous ones we always had made. I'd really like to see a TRS approved one made with their logo on the front chest somewhere in a clean fashion.
