Cool pics White Out. I like the "Enjoy your Prius" decal too.

Did the snow seem quite icy around there too? It was at Rocks & Valleys.

Looks like a good turnout. Bummer getting a seal fixed then right back into the shop for an alignment the next week. Such is the cost of having fun.

Nice to see Jarhead's H2 out and about.....or did someone tow it out there for pics

It must have been a little slick to be drifting a H1

I don't know the exact area. I was not a trail guide, so i was just a Lemming.
Jarhead would know exactly where we went, I'm not sure if he's on this site.

Thanks!
There was a little ice, with tires down to ~20psi nobody really was sliding around. The people above that aired down pretty quickly. :lol:

It was in three times over the past month getting three of the four geared hubs rebuilt. But I had brand new CTS-4s to drive while it was in there, so not a bad deal for me.
I will probably crawl under the truck this week and make sure nothing is bent, then whip out the string and straighten everything up. If it's still off, then it will go in to play with [dr. evil]laazers[/dr. evil].

He lead the way for most of the weekend, had to re-duct tape the rear 1/4 windows again.

It wasn't too slick to get the hummer sideways, 30psi in the tires +50mph and a scandinavian flick does the trick.

Undeniably more H1's have been aligned with "the String" than ever on an alignment rack

tousche'

Thanks, I love matte vehicles. Was going to paint my GN matte black, but it sold on a whim. So I used the proceeds to paint the truck. I am very happy with the results.

I keep string & pencils in my tool box.

That truck is sweet, I think it's a '94 Hummer pick up. Cummins swap, lifted, cut hood, dual winches, etc.

Hummer's were designed for civilians. Why are you confused?

Yeah we did.
I forgot to add, it was so warm that I took the back window out of the truck. If there wasn't so much shit in the truck (didn't have a hotel for the night so; two back-packs, two snowboards & gear, camera equipment, computer equipment, coats, etc) we would've taken the top off.

Those second set of pics were taking at a place called "Stoner Mountain". Its federal land at the end of 4-mile road acrossed military road. Its right next to a gravel pit that just recently started getting used again.
