We had a great time this past weekend, especially on "Ballerina Rock" as it has come to be called. Some of us had a little carnage (ED, Ryan/Bill, Graham), but a good time was had by all.



























P.S. Ask Ed how he got off Daniel.

Great wheeling trip even with all of the carnage



Should have put the carrier back in to get off the trail

Looking forward to the next trip, after some upgrades of course

Yea, I had a great time up there with everyone, and I really appreciate the invite once again. I'll definatly be around more and more, and can't wait to make some other trips with everyone...hopefully I'll be a little more then stock ha. And like Biggy, I owe ya some money for the campsite Len (and dues for that matter). Just let me know how much. It was good meeting everyone!

Oh, and what happened up on Daniel?

Broke a rear axle shaft and messed up the detroit along with breaking passenger side u-joint.

Should have put the carrier back in as the other side was intact. Didn't think about at the time. Would have worked to get it out under it's own power, so what happened afterwords doesn't count

It wouldn't have worked, THe problem is with the carrier itself. You can't tighten the carrier bolts without locking it up since the bearing is damaged.

Just getting the chance to post after the trip, man that is the most fun I have had in a while. Thanks to everyone! I had a blast and it was great meeting and getting to know all youin's. Of course I owe David, Ed(parts store), Len, Jimmy, and Hunter a big thanks for helping to get the gladiator repaired and back together, and to the rest who helped get me off of rocky mt loop and back to the camp site. I will definitely be picking up one of those beefed up diff covers soon. Here are some links to a few pics Sofia got this weekend. I think Len will be posting more later when he gets this CD from me. There are only a few because I did not shrink them down, so it takes a while to upload.

Well now I been on a trip, what do I need to do next to become a member of the club? I am ready to sign up!

Looks like the jeep has some sort of brake failure and the Bronco is serving as an anchor
