One thing i would add and we have done in the past is to spread the winches out among the group.

The biggest concern were some of the new folks wandered off by themselves. If they would have gotten stuck/lost and had issues with radio contact it could have been a problem. We may want to adopt the buddy system so at least 2 vehicles are always together just to be safe.

A little more carnage than was first thought. The hub studs were my fault for not doing my normal tighten before wheeling, but this is crazy. Just had the springs recoated and that may be the cause. If not, then I blame Ige
