King of the Road - SLC

It just so happened that the meet up city for KOTR was Salt Lake City and I was in the area visiting Crouse. Mike hit me up about helping with transport of the Mystery guests.  I met up with him for an evening mini ramp session, and then the next morning the fun began.

Jaws was the first to show up. David got him fired up.
