Uriel (Merman), Mike (Howyadoin) and I tagged along with some VJC peeps for a mellow pre superbowl run up at the ranch. got a little rain on the way up there but hardly a drop while we were wheelin. We got to the parkinglot/airdown spot at 9, saw other tow rigs but all were gone, WTF? Well I thought they were leaving at 9? NOT it was 8:30. I actually caought the tailgunner on the CB and we weren't too far behind them, we started headin up hte main road and Uriel's rig kept poopin the D/L disconnect so he checked it out and the T/C output was loose, 10 minutes to tighten and we were back in buisness, caught the Jeep group about mimle into their trail and brought up the rear.

Jacked some pics of our rigs from the VJC board camerasas well as some of or own.

Here's me comin though the first obstacle;

Awesome additional pics. So did Sy and Mike make the fall? Looks like Mike probably crawled it. I might have to "borrow" his 39" Krawlers cause he has 2 sets, and really only needs one.:D

I went around. Mike crawled to where you see him and Uriel Wheelied to where you saw him. the top was soft and they created a nasty breakover plus thay had wet tires.
