I was denied at cj hill again. I got close but not quite. I need a rear locker and some front shocks might help as well. However there were three from our group that did make it. There were also three broken dana 35 hubs and at least one axle shaft that spit a cap. I will let them spill it when they get home. It was great seeing some old timers that haven't been around much and to meet some new guys.

The potluck dinner was great as well. Tri tip, sausage, quiche, salad, cake, chips, fruit, veggies, beans, and more. I'm not sure how the peach cobiller turned out. They were digging it out from under the Christmas trees that went on the fire when I left.

It was also great to meet Burns from back east. I swear he sounds just like Gerald when he talks.

Good times wish I could have stayed longer.

...i just got back in and i must say, never a dull moment at truck haven....i will be posting some pics in a bit...

...we had a few good strappings including one truck strapped to another which was winching a truck from the top of the cliff on sideshow bob's hill...this had to be set up and done a few times...:D
...don't worry maniac, your record time is still the best but it was missed being outdone by mere minutes...;)

...i don't know where he got such a foolish idea to climb that hill...:p:

......as for my personal carnage, 1 right rotor and 1-drivers side u-joint after the trail...:rolleyes:...with some help of brother of jeffe and db1 for u-joints, bkennedy's welder and kevins welding skill it was ready to go before dinner and it made the night run...thanks a lot guys for the help...:salute:



...a little commentary for the pic below....rangerX was the trail leader of the not big dogs run and 90ranajo and i rode the rear....90ranajo seen a hill he wanted to climb and i asked bill if he wanted to run it...he said no but your truck can make it, with a big ol rangerX grin...:D
...90ranajo ran up it and turned back onto the road...i ran it up and got the ol lightbulb and said, that wasn't that bad, i'll take it back down...:rolleyes:
...what you can't see is jeffe (whom was riding with bill), watching from above the drivers door looking down, my left rear tire fully stuffed, my left front not close to landing, and out of the silence jeffe says, your in the wall, past tense...needless to say i didn't get a scratch...the thing is, i knew i was going over too....but it's all good...:thumbsup:

...and i actually thought this was the official explorer forum wave...:scratch:

So I made it home safe and sound, and have to say that this was my best trip to T-haven yet.
It was great being able to meet some more old timers as well as being able to now place a face with a name for the rest that I hadn't physically met before.

I'm proud to report that my new locker worked great, and thankfully my truck made it through the weekend with only a couple of new dings, and the traditional T-haven scratch.

I just never would've thought that it would take me just over 2 hrs, and help from 2 other trucks to only go a few hundred feet...:eek:...unfortunately I don't have pics of that so these will have to do...:p:
