Holy crap I'm tired. Didn't get home til 4:30 in the morning. 3.5 hours to run UW makes for a long night.
Props to tufftoy (Miller Jr) for having the nads to try firehole in an older, ifs, on 32's (i think) and only having to be drug over cause of a lack of clearance. I'm certain your clutch will never forgive you. Also, props to the 2 guys wheeling their new FJ cruisers. It is definately not the norm, and very nice to see the new stuff out on the trails. Blue FJ, Doc, made nice nice with a scorpion hitching a ride. I guess he didn't care for docs driving style much and gave him a nice wake up call (sting) in the arm, hope the arm feels better. Jeep guys, good wheeling with you too, always willing to lend a helping hand when it was needed. Sean, fun run, good meeting you. Maybe next time it'll be a smaller group.
As for UA. We ran about 1/10 of the trail starting just after midnight. The white jeep got hung up pretty good trying to take on a rather large boulder. Over an hour later and with a new front drive shaft on, we decided to cut our losses and turn tail. Some how some way, Faux got hung up on the way out. The carnage added up for him, I know of one fender toasted, a bigger dent added to the cab, and a possibly grenaded front locker once again. We arrived back at 79 & CWC Rd a little after 3 am..
All in all, a fun night, just really long and tiresome.
Oh, and Miller. I sought and obtained revenge on Firehole.
