H2h

Despite the whopping one person that initially showed up yesterday.... , I had a great day in FJ! Jeremy showed up in his newly transformed taco and no one else showed so we decided to hit lower & upper Woodpecker and join up with another group just behind us. We ran UW without any issues...except my near flop coming down from the firehole We got to the entrance to H2H and hung out for a few and all of a sudden Carlos shows up just in time in his (now) truggy. So myself, Jeremy, and Carlos decide to break from the group and do H2H. Carlos walked the gatekeeper obstacle like it was nothing and I had a bit of trouble on it. I just wasn't hooking up on my sidewalls and couldn't get through. I tried backing out to realign and.....

Cage works! A little pull of the strap and I was back on all fours...that was cool I decided it just wasn't going to happen today on that obstacle so I took the bypass. At the double waterfall section my lockers weren't working, but it was just a fuse, so I replaced that we were back on our way. We got through without many issues. The weather was perfect, good company, and had a nice non-epic day

H2H is fun. Good thing the gatekeeper notch is all filled in, it used to be a pretty big drop. Super fun trail if built enough to run it.

No recent ones. It's pretty built. He just put in a D60 in the front and it looses more sheet metal every time I see it

Not gonna happen.......... I'm done with wheeling once or twice and being down for 6-8 months........ I need to get more enjoyment out of it this time around........... at least until the economy comes around again and I can afford to replace broken junk every week again!

Hmmm, automatic climate control. That'll be great when it's in the 110's or in the 40's. I'm wanting to adopt the Howyadoin plan but the downsized version of only 2 vehicles. The Tahcomma for the comfort enjoyed fun runs, and another for the anti sheet metal get some fun runs. Mixing the two rarely seems to work.
