Hopefully he'll check in today. I'm curious what the other group did and where they went.

I'm alive. On the way home, literally 5 minutes from my house my right front tire came off and took the caliper, brake line and hub with it. I skidded on the blacktop 50 or so feet, hit the median, flipped backwards and rolled twice. It was like a carnival ride from hell. I climbed out the window and turned around and thanked my lucky stars. There was literally just the axle shaft sticking out on the right side.

Other than that I had a blast yesterday, despite the lack of coordination. I stayed back with one of the guys from The Ranger Station while he fixed his battery cable and the group just took off. Any one friends with those Jeepers? They took some good pics of us.

I guess that seems to be the norm with the front of that group BREAK DOWN AND WELL LEAVE YA. But for the lack of consideration on their part it was a great day, sorry to hear about you guys, but your home n safe and thats allways a good thing, if you guys ever wanna get together for a run pm me and well keep it small.

Yikes! Glad you are OK. If you get it fixed/get a new ride (is it totaled?) we should wheel again.

Damn bats! Glad to hear your ok! I know we talked briefly about that bearing givin up and I wondered all day if you made it. I'm so glad I caught mine when I did seein how I was feet from gettin on 295. I did get it changed out today but I missed a day of work thou. I also found I'm in desperate need of upper and lower ball joints and a-arm bushings! I can't wait to get a beater and stop runnin her everyday....

As for another run, I am deffinetly down to go with the same crew again. Atleast we can count on each other and look out for one another! ;)

Thanks you guys, I'm very grateful to not be hurt as well as have you guys looking out for me too! It had a little bit of axle growl for the longest time, just like my green 94 Ex so I figured it was normal. It didn't sound that horrible until I turned on to my exit. It went from minor warbl to horrible growling but I figured 5 minutes, I'll make it. Then the whole truck started shaking and the rest is history. Now I finally have a donor car for the my other truck. Hopefully I'll be up and running again for the spring.

Looks like you guys had a blast. I'd love to join you for a snow run sometime in the winter, provided no one leaves anyone behind. ;)

Agreed, another run maybe mid January would be a good place to start.

I'm game for mid-january or something like that, at least gives us all some time to recover and repair.
