I was there last weekend all the water holes by the beach were gone. Plus the big ones were filled in too. The only one left is back in all the trees on the south west side.

we all had a great time!!! We did however have some mechanical issues;

1- RenegadeII blew up a transfercase on wednesday, so he drove all the way back home and rebuilt a spare case. We installed that thursday morning during which I either pulled a pec muscle really badly or I cracked a rib not sure but it only hurts when I breath in or out

2-My Dad, with the white CJ5 halfcab, had carb issues early in the week. We did a carb rebuild on it. Then thursday the fuelpump gave up so he was done for the rest of the week (no body had a pump in stock).

3-Phildirt's YJ spit out an axle u-joint that at least is an easy fix

4-Jeepjk4dr had overheating issues thursday which we think overheated the trans fluid and it all of a sudden started slipping bad enough we towed that back to camp, so he might need a trans rebuild.

here are a couple of pictures hopefully there are more from the otherguys I didn't take very many

If you ever want to know true terror in your Jeep let my wife tow you off the dunes with the AMG

TRUE statement:D
Mike: "just pull up easy I don't want you to jerk the front end off"
Sara: "ok" then proceded to haul ass across the whoopdie doos like a barn sour horse at dinner time all Mike could do was hang on and pry
