Interesting day yesterday after a lack of sleeping from working day and night at the end of the week and then going on the night run Friday night. Started up Elvis with Myself, Jake(not wheeling his Tacama, wheeling his beater 4-runner), Dan(XJ on 31's), Dusty(Tacama on 35's), and Allen(Tacama on 33's). I blew 3 tires, including one on TBob fall and totally destroying another tire that had a slow leak also on TBob fall. Had to go back to the trucks and get the 3 tires I had there. On the way back Jake broke something in his e-locker. Other than that, no problems on Elvis, and everyone was aiming for lines that were not bypasses, including TBob fall! The XJ on the way to Jackhandle quit running and would not run anymore. So we towed it back out to Florence and the last I know of, it's still there. Here are a few pics.

On TBob fall, the passenger rear is flat, and the driver rear is leaking and very low, about to be completely destroyed

Nope, 3 crappy tires took a shit. The rear stickies went awhile ago courtesy of sticks laying in the road:rolleyes: Still have the front stickies though! Here's some videos of me abusing the pile with flat tires! And some of Jake beating his bitch Miller style.

The first video reminded me of someone else trying to get up that same spot.

well, except for the skinny pedal. Unlike someone else, miller definitely didn't spare it any :D

Damn right, I was trying to hurry up and get through there cause I had both rear tires leaking alot as you can tell. And you know I didn't want to take the bypass, and I didn't give up for awhile either, LOL. What litte ground clearance I do have was easily erased but lack of tires.

Here ya go Holly, your post on wcor:

Thanks! I'll have to remember how to do that. :p Next someone will have to show me how to put music over video so you dont have to hear me :D

I dont know if Miller would have taken it any easier on the falls if he did have fully inflated tires ;)

I think Eric can attest to the easy with which lil blackie climbs that fall since I did so fast last time he didn't even get a pic, and there was little more than idling involved:)
