Slaughterhouse Rescue Run
 
5 Attachment(s)
2003 Lexus LX470 rescued from Slaughterhouse Gulch tonight with no issues.

I hadn't anticipated pulling the front wheels, but when we got there and saw he was running spacers, the wheels had to come off. Pulled the c-clip, nuts, washers, drive flange and taped everything up as best we could. Locked the CDL, pulled the driveshaft and he was rolling. Took about an hour from start to finish. Myself, MountainGoat (plus little MountainGoat) and Big Country. Everyone pitched in and made it a fast, safe and smooth operation.

We got rained on a little, but that didn't stop us. It actually made the trail a little more fun after the work was finished. We ran up and down the hill a few times and then headed for Hog Heaven BBQ.

It was nice to help out a fellow Land Cruiser owner and show him what Rising Sun and TLCA are all about. Hopefully he'll take my advice and go see Christo to get all fixed up. I was disappointed to see all the trash on the trail though. The Rising Sun Trasharoo was almost full and I know Dan grabbed some too.

We had a great time recovering the Lexus. Not a single other person on the trail all afternoon and the woods smelled like heaven in the light rain. Top it off with a barbecue dinner and call it good. :thumb:

I got some pictures of the recovery operation:

Very nice job! It looks gorgeous up there too. I'm really glad no one vandalized his LX because I know in some areas disabled/abandoned trucks can get stripped down or shot up pretty quick!

Now thats my kinda way to waste a day!
Good thing you had the 80's there in case it got really bad...

Hey guys, we can get credit for trail work since you guys picked up a lot of trash. Let me know how many hours you spent traveling to/from the trail and time spent on the trail so I can report it. Thanks! :cheers:
