good time yesterday! broke 1 axle shafts before noon, replaced it then broke that one on my way to help joe. Than i fried the alternator while winching out joe from the "sand trap" he was in. And while loading the jeep i saw that one of the rear shocks was gone. looks like I'm gonna have more shop time this winter than I thought. Thanks ron for opening the park for us, can't wait till next time

Yeah, no major damage... Other then what was done by the few trees that jumped into the middle of the trail.

I found another old latch for my tire carrier. It looks like I may have enough part between the two of them to make one good one! Drivers side Mirror is DOA along with the soft top frame over the drivers door!

That's what that SNAP sound was. I heard it when you were wedged in the tree, but I didn't see anything.

At least you didn't find as many trees as Nick did.

Yup, I did post it yesterday... I was just downloading the pictures off the camera, and hopefully will have them online soon. Not sure how well they turned out.

Since I was in my Jeep most of the time, I did not get too many pictures/videos, but here are a few of what I got.







Bill Working on trying to get over an icy spot on Python. This spot was tuff for some, and others walked right through it. A almost stock JK made it through with little issues, while a locked on 37's YJ had lots of issues. At least my rig walked right through without a problem.



Here you can see Jamey in the JK doing finding some traction and making it look easy.


And Bill sliding around on the ice:





The trails were really icy. Here are a few videos from a section that was icy and had a nice little bump at the bottom:



The hill climbs were a blast! I was the first one on them for the day as was able to crawl almost to the top, but after one run it was down it ice and you needed some speed to make it up.
