2000 Reunion Video
By Steven Jackson

We’ve got two types of video from the 2000 Family Reunion. First, we have a clip of each of the brothers telling their favorite joke or story. Second, we’ve got some video from a tour we took of the family dry farm near Ririe.

Each video clip is available in a Windows Media format and a Real Media format. Choose your video format below. Some of the clips are a little hard to hear, but this is classic video that you won’t want to miss.

 

David, Max, Clive and Wayne Telling Their Favorite Joke or Story

During the reunion, we cornered each of the brothers and got them to tell us their favorite joke or story. The audio is a little hard to hear, but this is still great video to have for the family.

Tour of the Dry Farm Near Ririe

One day during the reunion, a few of us took a tour of a dry farm near Ririe that had once belonged to the family. David, Max, Clive, Wayne, Andrew, Spencer, Catherine Jackson, Rob and I loaded up in Rob’s suburban and made the trip from the girl’s camp down to Ririe.

In this first video, we are traveling in the car on the way down to the dry farm while the brothers tell some good stories. Unfortunately, I wasn’t recording when they told the best story, so I’ll recall it for you here.

While driving on the dry farm down near the Snake River, David started off by saying, “Ya know, I actually still own a piece of this land up here,” as he pointed up the hill. “One summer,” David explained, “I did some extra work for Dad and as payment he gave me that stretch of land over the ridge there.” Then Max jumped in saying, “Hey, Dad said he’d given ME that land!” Then Wayne chimed in and said, “No, he told me that land belonged to me!” Then Clive said, “You fools, Dad never owned that land, it belonged to the government!” We all started laughing. To this day, I’m not sure if this was a joke or if Grandpa Ririe had actually promised that land to each of the boys.

In the second video, we’ve arrived at the dry farm and are gathered around the small shack where the brothers lived during the summer while working on the farm.
