Awesome write-up Jeff, as always!

Next time around, guys, we gotta get some more shots of his red YJ in action...or I'll just volunteer to take it up the wall and he can shoot the photos (doubtful he'll allow that after witnessing my acrobatics yesterday)

No offense taken...but since Gribbles gets the credit and I get the damage, guess he gets to try that climb next time around!

Sorry for linking to your pics Jeff, but thought this one deserved recognition:

http://leiningerphotos.smugmug.com/g...322_kGyAx-A-LB

I do believe that's the prototype 84" wheelbase TJ that lurks around northwest Indiana! hehehe (are ya out there Mascun?)

Rubired Here......Soft sand and not enough Momentum. The sand gave way and we were caught by the tree. Marc and I want to thank everyone for the quick response. If it were not for the team recovery, our jeep would have rolled over and marc was still in it. Damage report - Lots of bent metal, three different panels including the hood and a Broken Mirror. A rubber mallet fixed some of the damage and super glue and epoxy fixed the mirror. And our biggest Fear "Mom" and all we got was a look and a smile that we were saved.

The Moral - Never go wheeling alone! Thank you Jeeps Gone wild for opening the doors to adventure and potentially more beauty marks.
