Tribute to Mark Smith, Rubicon Trail -- Jeep Jamboree Fame

Mark A. Smith passed away yesterday and we mourn his loss.  Founder of the Jeepers Jamboree and Jeep Jamboree, Inc,; creator of rock crawling, adventurer who crossed the Darian Gap in a '76 CJ on 33's; donated and delivered by copter 90 bags of cement when FOTR built the Sluice Bypass and made it look "natural;" jump in to help Friends of the Rubicon (FOTR) get started and flourish from the very beginning; Inductee in the Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame, and a man who leaves behind an incredible, lasting legacy that will never be forgotten.



A fun shot posted in February 2014 on Facebook with my take on the caption possibility.

The VERY first work party at the creation of Friends of the Rubicon (FOTR) with Mark Smith right there helping (pony tail alive and well).

Rest in peace Mark...you will live in in our hearts and minds.
