Hey guys. So yesterday at work me and a buddy of mine were talking about how it would be cool to go and do some winter wheeling. so we went on the local forum and sent out the MSG. before 9 last night we had a small group of guys who were in for a SHORT trip. There was 3 vehicles in all. Todd's Samurai and two jeeps done right to the nines. So we headed out at 9 in the morning. here is a few pics and the rest of the story.
We were maybe, maybe 400 meters in to the trail when me and Todd first got stuck. So we got winched out.... no problem.Then we could not get any traction because even with the tires aired down as far as they could go with out bead locks, the Samurai still did not have enough weight to push down on the tires and make a bigger foot print.so for another 400 meters we were toed up the Mountain.
OK so now we are at the top of the hill OK. Lets go and have some fun. We were moving for a good long while, and then we hit another bump. Now that we were at the top of the mountain we had to start dealing with drifts. Now Todd was starting to get a little pissed that his Samurai was not keeping up with the Jeeps. So he starts to push it a bit harder. Which is fine......until the hub bolts all snapped on the right side and we lost four wheel drive..... in the middle of a snow bank.
by now it is a round 430 and we realised that we could no go any further so we turned around. we finally get back to the trail head, and realize we did not even get 7 km tagged on the trails. The whole day was us getting towed up the mountain. I am not trying to ***** or nothing i really did have a good time. I just thought that some of you guys would like a laugh. O and before i forget The winch on the samurai broke as well. lol. Anyway that's what happens when you drive a Suzuki i guess. Hopefully next time we head out on the trails i will have a lift in my truck.
