Ran over to Airplane hill to run the filters






Once in Ryan decided to try Airplane hill while everyone else watched



And I believe that it was right around here where he broke his front axle

More winching, A broken snatch block, and more winching and we had Ryan to the top of the trail!


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.


First trail was Rogers Road


Then on to Stick in the Nose


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


Working our way over to Archers


It took a while but we finally made it to the V-Notch on the west side of Archers








Headed towards Waterfall


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...


Then this little XJ on 33's took a stab at it


Picked the correct line


And barely slipped a tire while the throttle jockey's stood there in disbelieve.


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.
