Well finally braved all the yahoos on the road and made it home safely:rolleyes:
as usual had a blast those who did'nt come missed out on a great run ;):p:
and of course the food afterwards was great as always even tho like i mention it was tuff getting on the 15 south with everybody else coming off the mountain too.

i have a few pics but have to download them from my phone since I forgot to take my camera :confused: but i will get up the few i have later.
 












AH yes it was a muddy good time:D
 






...And my vote for the most proficient driver of the day goes to all three (although I didn't need a strap, and nothing fell off my truck)...:p:

Haha, i bet your neighbors love that!
 






well they haven't said nothing yet :D

even tho after i took those photos i pulled it out in the driveway in front of our place and hosed off more of the mud now the whole driveway is brown in color.
 






Cholla

Addendum:

Who would have thought running over Cholla and Barrel cactus would cause slow tire leaks :confused:? ;) The guy at the tire place said I probably have a dozen tiny holes in my right rear tire, but only one mattered: the one in the sidewall :mad:. Oh well. The good thing is it's only losing a pound or so a day, so it's fix-a-flat time until I cough up the bucks for a new tire.

Hmm guess I got lucky when I sideswiped one out there haven't noticed noticed any leaks yet.......better yet i better check my tires in AM to make sure.
 






I've been waiting for mine to start leaking, but thankfully nothing yet...strangely all the ones I haven't pulled out seemed to have been swallowed up by the tires...:confused:
 






See, that was my mistake. I only noticed the leak AFTER Rachel decided we should pull the remaining spines out of the tires. So, I guess I can say it's her fault for pulling the cactus out rather than my fault for running over them in the first page :p:.
