Damn that looks like fun!
I spent the weekend on a recon run for the TornadoAlley TLCA 30th Anniv celebration run, check the TAC forum at the ihmud clubhouse for details if you care to, and try to come play out here in the fall...

Glad you guys mad it home o.k . Long fun day. Got to drive both Fj's. Was impressed on how well they handled off road. Cool to see that even though there was 38 vehicles, every one was set up for the trail. Thanks Scott for leading the run. I posted these in the staging are, but figured they should go in the completed section. Going to work on downloading the rest now...... Post more later

Thanks Nathaniel! I figured one of you guys had it. So was the Detroit a total PIA to get apart or what?

...still kicking myselft for forgetting that spare longside axle I won't leave without that hunk of steel again.

Great run for sure. 38 vehicles was a big turnout and Matt was thinking we may have beat the snow run record. Keeping a big group like that moving can difficult but everything worked out fine. I think the hardest part was the crack were Nathaniel broke his axle. Glad everyone was able to make it and having the FJ crew there made it really cool. Thank you Scott for leading. Here are my pics and the pics Ian took:

Looks like you all had fun. Pretty cool to see all the different LC models. I wish we had weather like that. All we have been getting is freezing cold or rain. That and high winds. I can't wait for CM.
