Glad to see you got home dude. We weren't sure where you got to after you split up from the rest of the group.
It was a great day, and a huge turnout. Guess thats what happens when two clubs do a trip together. Never seen that many Land Cruisers/Toyotas on one trip before. Cool to see some other rigs thrown in for good measure too, complete with one of the most abused but loved XJ's I have ever seen. The dude litterally had a door hanging off, and more dents then I've seen in a long time.
We had a great time, and got to play in a bunch of different places. I tried pretty hard to get up the quarry rock wall thing, and tried pretty hard to get through the snow drift at the end too. Honestly, it wasn't too bad snow and slippery wise, unless you sunk in deep somewhere. Maybe I'm just used to it, but it seemed like unless you were on the brakes or accelerating a lot, I hardly lost traction. Pretty thrilled with how my BFG MT KM's are doing. Was a bit concerned they would suck in the snow, but they are doing really well on all the snow runs so far. Glad I don't have to worry about replacing them till a later date when I have more money.
I totally spaced bringing the camera, so I'll have to be "that guy" again, and just beg for pics of myself. I brought the battery charger for it, but pulled an idiot move and forgot the camera itself:lol:. It was cool to meet some of the Rising Sun guys, who in general were very cool and awesome to wheel with. Sthmstr and I ended up going out for drinks and stuff after the run. One of the FJ40's overheated on Floyd Hill, after having his rear driveshaft slip yoke fall apart at the "parking area" halfway down the trail. Otherwise, no carnage I saw, despite some "crazy antics" at the big snow drift at the top of the trail (greenmachine, that would be you, among others
