"Easy" FJ run

Well, only 1 not so built Tacama showed up. The other was Mike and Carlos brought out his 4-Runner. Because of this we decided to run some harder stuff. We had 7 rigs, myself, Steve(Black stretched YJ), Carlos, Mike, Jake, Dan(Red XJ), and Allen(Black Tacama). We headed straight for UW and the Firehole. I fell in passenger like I have the previous 2 times and Steve winched me through. Went down the bypass, and tried again, this time I was too far passenger and slipped off driver and had to get pulled backwards back out. 3rd time I got it. Then got all screwed up coming back out as I was aiming far left and ending up going back right and put the big diff-grabber rock on my skid. Then Jake tried the Firehole and fell in both ways just like I did, 1st time passenger side, 2nd time driver side, and decided his rig was too long, too narrow, and too short to make it. Mike and Carlos made it no problem. No problems the rest of UW, just cruised. Then we decided to head to UA. Jake cruised up to the rock garden and watched, and then went home as he was having driveshaft mating with gas tank problems. Dan and Allen both parked their rigs and rode/walked the trail. I decided to try the ledge to the left of the gatekeeper and made it. Then the far right line around the big rock, but didn't make that. Mike ran it and fell off and added some character to his door. Carlos made that line for the first time, and Steve drove it as usual. The last waterfall Everyone made it including myself after heating up the stickies. Ran the rest of the way out of UA and decided to quit while we were ahead.

That's who was missing, it was URIEL! Well, and TBob. But I can tell from TBob's shackle comment that he's just mad that I drove the Firehole and his camper shell can't!

Well, if you weren't dropping the kids off at soccer practice, and then going to the grocery store, followed by cruising the mall parking lot, you could have made it out to beat your bitch!
