Default Spring Creek Adventures

Ran Spring Creek yesterday. Despite a few hiccups we had a good time. It was a first for many things regarding the 80- front sway bar removed, hitch pin pulled on control arm, broken tire bead, and the use of my new hi-lift (first time I've ever really had to read instructions).

Thought you guys would find these pictures slightly amusing:

Unfortunately we didn't have any starting fluid but thought I'd post this for anyone that hasn't seen it. Fortunately the Tsunami Pump, a ratchet strap, and two pairs of hands got her going again. Of course the heavens opened up on us as soon as we started getting the bead set.... wish the pump was a little faster! I see CO2 in the future.

BTW: the title says WD-40 but I'm pretty sure it's actually starting fluid. I've heard that the WD formula has been changed and no-longer ignites fast enough for tire inflation.
