So around 3am I heard a loud gunshot that woke me up, looked out my front window and didn't see anything. I waited at the window for a few minutes, I didn't see anyone else's lights come on, nor did I hear any approaching police cars, so I went back to bed.

Then I went to leave for work this morning, and this I what I found...
 
 



 
I'm really considering retiring this rig, we'll see.

Pics that lead to the breakage to follow!

No mustache here, but it was suggested!

Anyhow, I used to wheel that Jeep in the late 80's at MTU while in the MTU 4 Wheelers and some of the Alumni runs since then if you were ever up there. Also hit a few runs in the Marquette area maybe 10 yrs ago...

You should have wheeled the thing on the right.

Your jeep was the most fun to take pics of in action.

Noooo, you can't retire it! Other than the fact it kept wanting to kick off its shoes and go barefoot, it did great. Well, the clutch quit too but that's a wear item right? But otherwise did great.

It rained so much up there previously that even the roads sometimes looked like small streams!

Someone from my group must have taken some pictures!! I figured a picture of me having to pull cable in the middle of a logging road would have showed up by now.

It was a great trip!!
