I had a great time. Isac and I were playing with the big tire folks. Steve and Michelle had a few issues with their beautiful 40. Hope you guys made it home ok. Good weather if you don't mind rain and hail mixed in with the occational sunshine. Great to spend time with more club members. Definatly pushing the limits of the 100 on this trail. Got through the Creek with a little help from Gary and the Warn xd9000 in both directions. Very glad I had the Slee belly plate. It's got a few scratches now. Now if I can just figure how to get 39's to fit on my rig.

Yes we made it back.....long day....great day, minus the frame crack, and loss of rear brakes for the joyous ride home in the rain all the way from the tunnel

Big thanks to Farnam, Gary, Jeremy, (Jason the guy towing the Bronco for the brake fluid and the vice grips holding the brake lines together) and anyone else I forgot to mention.

Awesome pics. Looks like a lot of fun. I need to get my 60 ready for those trails next year.

I see Isaac's up to his old tricks again - running lines supposedly reserved for 37's and above....

Great pics - keep 'em coming.

I'll put the few pics I got up in a second.

That line was a bit worse this year. The pic above shows it just before I tried to climb the rock on the pass front. In trying to climb that the truck kept just tipping further and further to the passenger side. I now have a nice, quarter sized dent from a rock poke in the passenger rear fender, as it layed over far enough to hit that. Tube fenders are coming shortly!

Here are my shots:

Sequence of me climbing the wall (Thanks Farnham!):





I love that flat belly!







The only good shot I got of Farnham He just went up it too fast!



Steve:



These next two are some of my favorite shots of Steve that I got:





Tom rocketing on up as well:



Unfortunately I was feeling so crappy after this that I didn't get much of a chance to take any more.

Great trip except for the drive back, I hate driving at night in the rain. I got home and was so tight I sat in the tub for 45 minutes with a few beers and Sharon rubbing...........hey get your minds out of the gutter, my neck.

I'll post up the few pics I have tomorrow since I left my adaptor at work, not sure how many pics I have anyway.

I do have to say thanks to UB and Jeremy, they never gave up on me on Cleveland Rock even after I called for a strap or winch several times trying to be nice to the J**p jerks. I made it up and the three of us sat up there waiting for the J**P's to break, move, argue and generally be rude.

A great day and a great crew to run with, sorry you had to go early Isaac hope you feel better.

Only damage that I can see are a BUNCH of scrapes, two of my lousy welds broken and a possible right rear axle seal. I was going to rebuild it this winter anyway.
