JPS8460, We did eventually find Hacket Gulch, and later, Metberry gulch. We had a very similar experience to yours. The GPS kept leading us to private property with locked gates. It was frustrating. Sorry we were never able to link up. It took forever to get to the coordinates you gave us. But I guess you never made it there either. So, all well. Maybe next time.

Anyways, we got to Hacket Gulch and decided to run down it, since we were there. About half way my front left drives shaft exploded out of my dif into a thousand pieces. Managed to tie it up out of the way enough to be able to get out. Sleepy had to pull me out part of the way because my 4WD wasn't working any longer.
It was all fun and games till that happened at about 6. Just made it home at 9:30.
So now, I've got to try and get this fixed ASAP.
I think this will be the 5th or 6th time i've had to replace either one or both front drive shafts. It's just incredible to me how easily all that seems to fall apart. Feeling very frustrated at the moment.

I would rather walk than drive anything that's 2WD.
