Long Weekend (take a look)

went to tahoe with my family this weekend. a long weekend and an adventurous one.
went shooting on saturday, my trap thrower i made for the truck worked like a charm.


i went looking for trails the night before and found alot of these.. all the trails i used last summer got closed. pretty pissed about it too.


so after shooting i went lookin for trails out of hobart and found some good ones that werent snowed in or closed.




ended up at the prosser resivoir and it was breathtaking.




then i went down to the water, just to sit and eat. started to get soft so i turned around, but got stuck.. some guys came over in a buggy and tried to get me out, but ended up getting me more stuck. then they took off leaving me like this.


then a guy with a cummins came out seeing whats up and i tried to wave at him and tell him to stop.. but noo he came right over and got stuck with me.


dont have many more pics but a kid in a pathfinder, his friends in a jeep, and another in a suburban came along, they knew mr cummins so we all tried to get both trucks out. ended up pushing mine out, thank god.. but the cummins was buried. it took 8 hours of digging, 2 floor jacks, plywood, 3 broken tow straps, 2 come-alongs, and tons of work to get it out. oh and as this was going on, one of the guys had his dog out there. i walked to close and the pitbull bit my hand. hurt like a ****.




got it out about 9pm..

thats most of it.. one more thing. woke up this morning to find that my dad bought this 07 JK. im jealous, this suckers built. geared with 4.88s, detriot in the rear, warn powerplant winch, long arm suspension, atlas twin stick transfer case, the list goes on. it was built as a raffle rig for the jeepers jamboree a few years back. its gonna replace the CJ.. so thats for sale fellas.. :( although with it being for sale im taking the tires off it first. so ill have brand new 32in bfgs by next month. he hates the KM1s that are on it so hes replacing them with the a/t. and ill have 35x12.5R17 KM1s for sale soon. thats all for now!
