Gilmer, the other group

It was good to see everyone.

I had fun up until a certain point.
I was lucky not to have hurt myself or anyone else. Thanks to Michael and Randall for helping me get back home safely.
Now I'm driving a Chevy Blazer named Bertha.

That sucks. How the heck did you do that?

Rob, it was good meeting you.
You would have made Airstrip look easy too, if you would have had a locker in the rear. Your drivers side rear tire wasn't spinning to get you up a ledge.
Luckily I didn't have to use my fire extinguisher on your truck! :eek:

Saturday afternoon, I broke my passenger side half shaft in the wrong place on a 4+ rated trail called Wile E. Coyote.
Unfortunetly, I had forgotten my spare half-shafts at home.
Against my better judgement I drove my truck without the end of a half shaft in it.

Now I definitely know for sure that SLA IFS 4x4 Explorers have to have the outer piece the half shaft to hold the hub assembly together.

Lessons learned:
1. Don't leave home without your spares.
2. Don't hesitate to call a friend to bring you your spares.
3. Listen to the voices in your head.
4. My friend Bill, that will be helping me fix my truck said, that the axle probably broke where it did, because the axle nut holding it on wasn't tightened all the way that it could be.
 






Hey Guys, I had a lot of fun this wkend too! Michael I enjoyed riding with you! You don't scare me one bit ;)

Good pic, funny stuff man! John, did it take you guys a little while to get your truck on the trailer? We took brians off and I ended up driving it for a while and got f'in pulled over by a trooper so that slowed Brian and I down a bit. We got home and about 4ish.
 






Dood I cannot stop laughing at this picture of Randall. If you know Randall you dont normally get any action shots out of him personally. FreaKING Hilarious.
 






Thats what I just said! Hoo Ha Hilarious (hehe-deener)
 






nice move, randall. i think the dallas ballet group is looking for performers. u would definitely be what they are looking for. :)

No it didn't take long once I got a nut to fit the long bolt and washers that we used to keep the tire/wheel attached to the knuckle.
 






Hope you guys didn't get eaten up by the ants like BJ and I did standing over there.
 






That's awesome! Gilmer is our home, but we haven't been there in over a year, I definately miss it.
 












Michael was spotting me. He said jump, so I jumped

He sits and stays on command too. I'm still working on rollover:roll:

You must have been thinking rollover when he went down Airstrip, cuz he almost did it!
Red Bull almost did this - :roll: :redexp: :roll: :redexp: :roll: :redexp: :roll:
