Wadey had a bit of a problem on the long crawl today as well. I'll just say that we had to get the loader involved. We got him put back together enough to limp it home though. He's got some work ahead of him.

No they went back and stayed at his place. Motox168 was going to be the only one camping so Wadey let them crash at his place. They got Moto's fixed only to have it break again. So when I got there we went over to the long crawl and boom. I'll let Wadey tell the story...

Well...



This and the other 3 tires not touching the ground led to Bigblockford and a red cherokee (sorry I can’t remember your name but thanks for getting off the trailer) winching me out of long crawl.



Brandon's 16,500 winch earning its keep





Sunday was a little more fun...






Broken ball joints and stub shaft, along with 2 bent leafs. The crew at R&V helped me out with the loader, motox168 strapped up the axle and lent me some tools (thanks robb). BeaverTown stuck around for 6 hours and helped me fix the front end enough to drive home.



Had a great first time at the park and can’t wait to go back again, met a lot of great people. Id like to thank Brandon and the red cherokee for all the help on Saturday. I have to give a BIG thanks out to John and Rich for the parts run and all of the help putting the truck back together

I was there on Saturday, riding passenger in a red YJ. Our crew had a couple rigs who couldn't or wouldn't do the tough trails so we only hit a few. We let some newbies have some fun and spent most of the day cruising the green and blue trails. We hit a few of the tougher obstacles, but didn't do any of the black trails. A couple from our group did one while we were dealing with a broken truck in the parking lot, and we made it back out just in time to drag his busted rig off the trail and load up. We all had a good time and hope to go again and hit the harder trails.

Ya rob didn't seem to have much luck this weekend and he tried making me stay for Sunday but had to work at 7am. I have to give thanks to bigblockford and peanutboozer as well without them me and wade would still be walking. My 8k lb winch wouldn't budge me or the blazer so a 16k was really was nice.

Wadey boy sorry about the old girl but atleast you got it home. Who knows what would of happened if I stayed haha. Happy birthday anyways now be sure to post up those pictures

As for me looks like its time for chromos.....

I may have followed you guy around for a bit. Up Undertaker and then the YJ on 33s decided against it.
