Lbl 2008

Hi, did anyone actually attend the 2008 LBL Jam? I'd love to see pictures from this year. I'm the guy in the red hat hanging on for dear life in the back of the 78 CJ.

We were there, we did the Iron Furnace trail (County Roads) both days. Here is a link to our photos. My son managed to break his front driveshaft on the newbie trails. Big thanks to Max for helping us get it off and back on and to Pat in the Purple CJ for welding it back up.

If you were at the dinner Saturday night you probably saw my son. He's the one that won the "weakest link" award . He was pretty embarrassed at the time but afterwards he thought it was pretty cool.

How in the world did he break a DS on those trails. Most of them can be run in 2wd. I have a friend who was a guide for the Jambo

You guys had more mud than we did on Turkey Scratch and Tuf-e-Nuff, which are mostly pretty steep hills and tight turns. Sorry about the driveshaft, I was wondering what qualified him for the weakest link award. Thanks for the pics, it's good to see what the other trails looked like.

We hit an area with a lot of ruts and my son fell off the trail into a deep set of ruts. He had winched himself out once and was still having trouble getting going. He had the Jeep gassed up pretty good to get his momentum up and when it got traction it launched him pretty good. He lost site of one of his spotters (me) got concerned and went from near full throttle in 4LO to locking the front brakes. The ds sheared off at the yoke.

I was surprised he got the award. I think there were one or two people that didn't even get out on the trails. I figured it would go to one of them. Friday was a tough day for him, he got stuck twice before he broke the d/s and once afterwards. At 19 though he is still learning and we work on the Jeep's together. We spent Saturday putting the newly tubed and balanced driveshaft back under his Jeep.

I get it. It's cool he will learn more about jeeping and the jeeping community. I frequent the trails in LBL (Turkey Bay) and have shown MANY guys around and new guys get so scared if they feel like they are going to get stuck. Once they catch on it's not a big deal but rather a part of jeeping. Same thing with breakages they break something and it's the end of their world. I tell them don't fret it. If we have the parts we will fix him up if not we will get him to the trail head and work it out from there. I have driven to parts stores for guys, given my spare parts up to keep a guy going, and even left home and went out to bring someone a part, pull them out of a stuck (wheeling alone's NOT A GOOD IDEA) heck I have even driven my jeep home to use my trailer to get other guys home.

Our deal when he got the Jeep was that if we wheel it eventually we will break something, I helped a guy with a stock car in high school and know that eventually something will break. My Dad that rode with him that day had drag raced back in the 50's also knew that. As long as he isn't out doing stupid stuff were cool with breakage.

Even though the weld seemed perfect we removed the driveshaft Saturday night just to be safe. One of the best moments of the trip was seeing my Dad (age 72) and my Son (age 19) under his Jeep taking the driveshaft out. They wouldn't even let me help!

By the way, the driveshaft has been retubed, balanced and is back in the Jeep. It was only one hundred thousandths out of true but the shop said they only allow ten thousandths.

We ran Turkey Scratch on Friday and Renegage Run on Sat. Even after 3" of rain Renegade was not too bad until later in the day when we got into some parts of the park without as much gravel in the soil. Had a great time and suffered no damage other than a few scratches and a broken speaker on my CB. I talked to Mike about you Fred99 and he gave me a web site to check out but it didn't work. Is it "itsajeepthing.org" or did I get that wrong? He said some of you use it and it's where you post for runs in LBL.

Hey J-Mox what part of MO you live in? I am hoping to move to St Paul (Ft Leanardwood) sometime in the next year. I am WAY looking forward to wheeling SMORR? I think it's called. Looks AMAZING

I live just outside of Cape Girardeau. I've never been to SMORR but I've heard great things about it. I believe it's what is also called Flat Nasty. I put up a comment or two on the Missouri Jeepers post on here also about the club I belong to at "midwestjeepthing.com" and there are quite a few guys that wheel there often. Hope to meet ya on the trail sometime soon. John.
