Ran over to Airplane hill to run the filters

http://a3.ec-images.myspacecdn.com/i...fa498388/l.jpg
http://a2.ec-images.myspacecdn.com/i...9dfa6d0f/l.jpg

Once in Ryan decided to try Airplane hill while everyone else watched
http://a2.ec-images.myspacecdn.com/i...4d7a2cb1/l.jpg
http://a4.ec-images.myspacecdn.com/i...b302e26b/l.jpg

And I believe that it was right around here where he broke his front axle
http://a1.ec-images.myspacecdn.com/i...4a17cb96/l.jpg
More winching, A broken snatch block, and more winching and we had Ryan to the top of the trail!
http://a1.ec-images.myspacecdn.com/i...fc3ebaa6/l.jpg

Broken axle, starting problems, burnt up winch, It was a well earned cowbell

Back at camp for a Saturday night potluck dinner

Sunday morning I was leading 15 rigs headed down hwy 6 towards trask.
http://a2.ec-images.myspacecdn.com/i...fbb0000f/l.jpg

First trail was Rogers Road
http://a1.ec-images.myspacecdn.com/i...a2ecd65b/l.jpg

Then on to Stick in the Nose
http://a2.ec-images.myspacecdn.com/i...6c1255f5/l.jpg

About 2/3 of the way down Stick in the Nose there were front end issues. After about 2 hours of trail wrenching we were back on our way
http://a3.ec-images.myspacecdn.com/i...6b3a3b59/l.jpg

Working our way over to Archers
http://a3.ec-images.myspacecdn.com/i...c3ba99a2/l.jpg

It took a while but we finally made it to the V-Notch on the west side of Archers
http://a1.ec-images.myspacecdn.com/i...3a574d0e/l.jpg
http://a4.ec-images.myspacecdn.com/i...c251085e/l.jpg

http://a1.ec-images.myspacecdn.com/i...adf725fb/l.jpg
http://a1.ec-images.myspacecdn.com/i...cb5e002e/l.jpg

Headed towards Waterfall
http://a3.ec-images.myspacecdn.com/i...5998bd3c/l.jpg

At Waterfall there where two TJ's and a Zuki buggy that were trying to make the climb. Two out of the three made it but it was all throttle no brain...
http://a4.ec-images.myspacecdn.com/i...990aec9d/l.jpg

Then this little XJ on 33's took a stab at it
http://a3.ec-images.myspacecdn.com/i...cc6fa32c/l.jpg

Picked the correct line
http://a1.ec-images.myspacecdn.com/i...66082784/l.jpg

And barely slipped a tire while the throttle jockey's stood there in disbelieve.
http://a2.ec-images.myspacecdn.com/i...fcf5fc6b/l.jpg

I had to take off for town after that but there were more that tried waterfall that succeeded. For more pictures check out our forum or our Facebook page.

Nice pics.

Love it when someone walks up an obstacle with "class" after others roll the jeans up past the knee to get deeper in the gas either can't make it of break something with foolishness.
