Sorry guys, the internet at SRCG was the worst ever this year. Yeah yeah I know, get a smartphone to use as a hotspot, but seriously they need to fix their junk. We're paying for it right?

Anyhoo, on Hell's Revenge yesterday we got front row seats to an air evacuation. Dude endo'd his ATV, no helmet of course. So, if they make us sit there for an hour getting his a$$ out, at the least we can drool over the $2M toy they get to play with.

Check out the rocks the pilot put under the skid in the second from bottom picture, so low-tech LOL! I know the last picture looks like the first, but I wanted to get the sense of telling the story from when it landed until when it took off. I took a zillion more pictures, here. Full 24Mp resolution if anyone wants to make a poster. As you might imagine, most of them were more typical Cruise Moab truck-climbs-over-rock type stuff, but the helo evac was pretty unique.

Woody waits to pull cable on Gary Coberly's UZJ45 while stuck in Hell's Gate - He broke something, I heard something about rear links and break out the welder. The winching didn't work and they ended up backing him down to the bottom. Don't know the details other than I saw him driving under his own power at camp this morning, so whatever it was it apparently got fixed.

He told us the 80 broke both front upper control arms and they ended up using a winch on the axle and one on the truck to get it down. Then they pulled the arms and welded them up and were good as new.
