Woods rock course was SLIMEY!!!! Winch fest to say the least. Didn't get to try the slab after that. Jeep decided to go to limp mode and broke a steering bolt.

VERY impressed with the work they've done there.

Had fun.
The rock course kicked my ass with all the wet rocks and mud on the tires.
Could not make any progress on the slab.
Day cut short when the alternator quit. Still loaded itself on the trailer at 9 volts.
All I can say is it is an interesting bunch around there. i never expected a crowd that big.
Pic thread should be interesting.
Glad to see all the donations for the hungry.

So did it run after I winched you back on all fours? Had to leave while you were still working on pulling the plugs and it was not as bad as I thought it was gonna be. Ran the woods trail as stated winch fest and no traction. All in all a good day.

Yup, drove it out and ran good. Once I saw how little damage there was, I was in a great mood!

Thanks for the pull/roll over!!

It was slimy for sure today...but it was fun even though we blew a trailer tire on the way out there. Then tore a small hole in the soft top playing in the hills and valleys...

Official count of cash, and all I can say is WOW!! The wheeling community has amazed me once again! With the help of all of you, we managed to raise $469.85, and a boat load of canned goods (amount will be posted after it gets weighed). To everyone who came out and showed their support, THANK YOU!!!!!!! The Eastern Michigan Food Bank is able to leverage $1 into $16 of food to help families in need, that means that today, we (as the wheeling community) were able to provide families in need with over $7,500 dollars worth of food! It makes me proud to call myself an off-road enthusiast after a day like today!

Thanks again for the support, and thanks for a fun filled day of safe responsible wheeling! Happy Thanksgiving and God Bless!
