Default Jenny Creek - Saturday 9/16

What a fun run! t'was myself in the 40, Terry in his BJ55, Ken in the LX450 & Rachel w/ friend Matt in her 3rd gen Runner. About midway up Rollins Pass road it started to snow, and really came down! We went from a wet trail at the bottom to close to 2" up top.. made for slippery rocks as well as some nice scenery. I was stoked to get through the whole trail with all open diffs, was impressed with how well the 40 did. Here's some pics...

Only truck issues were Terry blew a fuse for his locker, then later bent a rim and got a flat.. so we got to change that on the trail. The lower bolt for my seatbelt fell out, I put it back but it came out again, so I was w/o lap belt for the whole way back ( PO!@! ) I think that's it. Brain from the FS was also up there, but he didn't run the Creek with us, we saw him again at the mud bog up top. thanks again everyone for coming out!

two more pics:

It was a fun day. Teryy, please PM me you e-mail and I'll send you those pictures I took of you.

Great day. Changing Terry's Flat was fun. Course my Hi-lift finally got some use.

Tim, thanks for putting this together

Nice trip! Thought the 40 had an Aussie in the rear?
