That picture is after quite a bit of the recovery had already been done. When we started, his front end was further down the slope than his rear. It was truly a tense situation handled extremely well by all involved. I'm pretty sure everyone involved learned something that day - I sure did.

I tossed that sucker down the hill for you though , which on later consideration wasn't smart because I think I nearly took out Perry hiking below us - He mentioned not knowing anything was wrong until rocks started rolling down the hill toward him

A huge thanks to everyone for the fun but especially to the Millers for putting together and coordinating such an awesome event. Everyone had a great time that even the leaky tent the last night couldn't put a damper on

From the drive out on Friday and talking to Marco on the HT, to the fun wheeling on Saturday (I've mentally blocked out the recovery details ), to the potluck, to watching the kids have a blast, to fun on Sunday, and the drive home and dinner Sunday night, it was a great time with great friends

I'll post up some pics tonight...

Edit: And Nathaniel, we all really enjoyed the information about the area and the history...Tell Andrea that we don't all think you are a total geek...

I'll post pictures when I get home...

80 decided to shear off all the knuckle studs and allow the steering to part ways with the wheel bits. It was impressive but not as awesome as stealing studs from the other side and driving on the trail fix. I am hoping that when the wheel tried to leave the truck it destroyed the axle seal but I cannot figure out why there was so much 90 weight pouring out of the axle housing. I drained about a gallon out the knuckle wile trying to bolt the wheel back on.

As always had a great time with the club. Was even better than last year. The feast was AWSOME. Thanks Nathaniel. Awsome job as usual. Hope your lunch was good on sunday. hehe. Now i need to beat the plastic gas tank skid back to shape in time for the next run. Different with a few pounds on the roof and aired down tires. Skipped off a few more rocks than i wanted to. Oh yeah, thanks for removing the boulder that did the damage AFTER i got stuck on it.... haha. See everybody next time.

Kenny and Family
