Default JCROffroad goes to South Dakota... (Pics!)

Pics!
http://www.jcroffroad.com/wheelingpics.html



Trip highlights so far, we are still trying to make our way home. Currently in a motel room in Mordo S.D.
On the way out, leaking fuel injector line on my truck. Minor fix.
Daryl- Lift pump.

Way home- Trans line went in Badlands National Park. Thanks to Daryl and Brian I'm back on the road, I was pretty worried. If you've ever been to the park you will understand.
Bryan- Calliper bolt fell out going down a mountain in the middle of the Badlands. We almost had a nice chain reaction pile up. Good times.
Found bolt in the middle of the road and back in business just in time for a very large storm/tornado rolling through the park. That was pretty awesome.

We are still in the middle of nowhere, hope to be at my brothers in Rockford Ill. by tomorrow night.
So far so good.

Last I heard Jeremy (Kieser42) is broke down somewhere in Ill. but we can't get ahold of him. He left yesterday.

As for wheeling rigs, Daryl and DocBrads Jeeps are the only ones out of 9 coming back in one piece (Both suffered body damage but still running). But it was one hell of a place to break your junk. BEAUTIFUL!!!

I changed a lift pump on the way out as well.
This hotel room stinks.
A cat walked into our room and onto the bed, I think he wants us to take him home.

Forgot about the lift pump.

Yes, these rooms stink.

Finished the drive this morning. About 15 minutes after leaving the hotel we got into an accident. We were in construction zone. I was in the right lane. Someone came onto the highway, cut me off and slammed on there brakes about 6' in front of me. I was doing about 40-45 mph. I avoided the rearend pileup by trying to fit down the middle of the lanes. Unfortunatly, the minivan was unable to avoid getting smashed by my trailer! The guy that caused the accident did not stop and I did still hit his car. No Ticket, no one hurt, and no damage to my trailer or truck.







No one was hurt, no ticket, and the trailer won.
