Well made it home from a great day out in the snow with Josh and Blake.

overall the snow was cooperative and all the trucks did great. as with most snow runs it was drive until you cant drive any more then spend 2 hours turning every one around. today was no different.

Airing down getting ready to make fresh tracks



Onward we go, ruts were established but there was 8in of fresh in all the tracks



Blake and Josh



it was deep...



all the rigs



where Blake finally could go no further. (he was sad)



my rig



Josh helping Blake out to give me more room to turn.



dug in and needed some help getting out so out came the winch!



out of the first hole and in to the second the snow warmed up and we started to sink



More winching happened that Blake and Josh have pics of but I got turned around.

after I tore up the snow we were able to get Blake turned around with some wheel spin and pushing.

then it was Josh's turn he dug into some ruts and we tried out a super yanker from one of the jeep guys that came by. that ended with josh turned around and me now 2wd...

I haven't torn into it yet but think the bumpstop deflected and let the suspension over bump and pop the inner tripod joint out of the diff side socket.

so I had to use josh as a winch anchor to pull myself out and slowly make my way down the hill. luckilly the jeeps did a good job packing in the ruts so we made it out a a brisk 5mph.

got down to the road and called Brendon to come load the truck up, we aired up tires re packed gear and BS'd for an hour or so until my ride showed up and we got it loaded up to head home.





carnage pics to follow... it was a great time.
