So here's some pics and vids I got so enjoy. Be sure to click the images to open the videos.
Kyle dropping a big ledge.


Found this one particularly funny.


This one is funny too. That loud crashing noise is Kyle driving off a giant ledge he didn't see, smashed his sliders real good.


And this one the Trail Whale is making all that noise in the background lol

Ok photobucket is having issues today. So the run started out good. By the end of the day it was another story. I cant remember everyones damage report. So I tore the ds hub off. Pulled the steering box off the frame Seperated the dive shaft 4 times, Lost my clutch fluid and therefore my clutch and had to finally be winched out. Mythica and his bro were able to do a trail fix on my hub to make it work long enough to get out.

Trail damage

Scratched my new fairlead trying to climb Kyles Cliff.
The wind blew my can of Pringles off the hood. Had to eat some dirty chips. Not bad, since the last time on that trail I blew a trunion bearing and got metal in my Longfield. About a $300 repair.

Looks like they are Bull Snakes. They can grow up to 8' long, look like rattlers and can make a noise to mimic rattlers. They are nonvenumous but as far as I'm concered, they are all poisionous! I hate snakes!

My biggest problems are my driverside hub is held together by bailing wire, and my steering box is 1 bolt from coming entirly off the frame. Out of 3 bolts 1 is missing 1 is snaped and one is barely holding. Got a month before takeover so it will be fixed. Havent even looked into the clutch yet.
