Default Slaughterhouse Gulch rescue Wed 5/15

A Denver 100 Series guy posted on MUD that he blew the front diff on Slaughterhouse and his truck is still up there. I believe he's new to the area (don't know him or his wheeling/mechanical abilities) but I think he could use some help pulling the ds and flanges so he can get home in 2wd. He posted that he planned on camping there, but if it's just a matter of removing the DS and flanges, he'll be ready to roll fairly quickly.

Me and Big Country are gonna head up tomorrow afternoon and give him a hand and hopefully run the loop.

If anything, it's a good excuse to do a quick run and show a potential new RS/TLCA member what Rising Sun is all about.

Plans are somewhat tenative at the moment, but I'm thinking meeting at either the Aspen Park King Soopers or the gas station where you make the right off 285 towards SH (someone will have to remind me of the name of that place) at 3pm. That may change depending on whether we run the loop before or after the repair. Loaf N Jug at 3pm, Google map info posted below.... He's at the bottom of the big hill, so maybe just run the hill once or twice and then I'll follow him back out the way we came to be sure he makes it out. (Depending on any snow/ice that may be left)

That would be the Loaf and Jug at 285 & Bulldogger Road (aka Park County Road 43).

Count me in Stan. Let me know if I need to bring any specific tools or anything.

Thanks Dan..... I knew you'd chime in. I was about to send you a text.

Here's the google map info for anyone who isn't familiar. https://maps.google.com/maps?q=173+B...80421&t=m&z=16

Right now, it's a 3pm meet up at the address above. Check back for any changes, or just head up the trail and join us.
I'll have the URB's if anyone else will be in the area.

CB4 and 146.460

Big Country and I should have all the needed tools.

PM'd back and forth with the guy. The truck is in a nice level spot, there is no snow/ice to speak of. He won't be up there until at least 5pm, so we can play around on the hill until he makes it, then help him out.

I am going to need to be back home by 6:30 or 7. I'll stay as late as I can. I am going to bring the little if you and Bill don't mind.

Did Bill get his birfs fixed? I'm hoping to get a peek at his 80 tomorrow.

Don't mind at all, looking forward to seeing her! Bill was gonna call you to borrow something (I can't remember what) He'll be in the 80, 4-linked and all.

Michelle has plans for the kids tomorrow night so Keagan won't be with me, unless I can talk her into letting him skip out.
