    Unfortunately because of the snow and lack of work that had gotten done the last 2 days my work has instituted mandatory overtime tomorrow to make up for lost time. So instead of heading to jersey, I will be heading to work tomorrow morning. Hope you guys have a blast and don't break nothing.

    Got it. Sounds good. So we lost Dan, but gained another truck. 10 trucks. I'll be leaving in about 30-40 minutes, should be there at 10:00, give or take 10 minutes.

    Had a blast out there today. I left after the first half of the day and the rest of the group went back out for more. Haven't heard from any of them yet, so I'm assuming they stayed out a LONG time or are still thawing. Below are some of my pics.

    It really was a great time, the tree branches across the trails were kind of annoying - a lot of trees were bowed because of the snow weight and were beating the piss out of our roof racks, but it wasn't too bad.

    Of COURSE, I was the only guy to get REALLY stuck. Happened in a big mud & ice pit. For some reason tgreene got through without an issue on his 31s, so I figured I could handle it - no such luck. And it look Jay with his beast to finally pull me out after 2 other failed attempts with 3 other trucks.

    All in all though, an awesome time. No one broke anything (while I was there) and everyone was really cool.

    Jay taking on the mudpit that sunk me. He eventually got out under his own power, but my card ran outta space before that point.

    I think the camber might just be the angle of the camera? I don't think it's that bad. I DO need an alignment, though.

    And as for the stuck pics, I was inside the vehicle, but just wait for the others to upload, I'm sure they won't let me live that down (looking at you, Jay). :rolleyes: :D

    This is the worst carnage I had, one of my HID bulbs fell out of my housing and melted, and destroyed the housing from smoke damage... lifetime warranty will be put to use come Monday
