I'll be surprised if I haven't toasted the shocks after another run like the last one.

Sorry for the derail, but I've been pissed about that for a month or so.
URE is an annoyingly bumpy place with all those damn erosion mounds. What kind of shocks are you running that would fatigue so easily?

Don't worry about derailing, this thread will be 15 pages long before you know it!!

They're pretty fun on an ATV.

But yea, annoying as hell in a Jeep.

OME N66/67's. The fronts were HOT by lunchtime... and for once I don't intend "hot" to be said in the Paris Hilton Voice.

I thought OMEs were supposed to be high quality, I've never had that problem with my cheapo Skyjacker Nitros. Were you just riding trails non-stop? That doesn't happen when you wheel with me. More talking, less wheeling!

Plus, on a busy weekend like this there will be more people to watch play around on Kodak. Seth and Clay, we won't be leaving Kodak until you've both done the line to the left of the wall I always like to climb. No exceptions. You can even do the wall if you're feeling frisky.

Not an acceptable answer. With the 8.8 and sliders you have no more excuses to stay away from Kodak.

How is that a concern? As long as you aren't being a retard you aren't ****ing up. What is worse, the small chance of breaking something in front of people you don't know, or pussing out in front of people you do know?

Besides, the line I'm referring too is fairly easy compared to the line I usually take. I know Clay will be doing that line, he's already told me he wants to try it. Plus, I think he knows I'll just nag him like usual until he does it anyway.

At URE there is nothing but bunny trails.

You can do everything there. You might want to avoid the bottom half of Daniel on your first trip, but I'm sure a few of us will probably have open b seats if you want to check it out. Though they may have bulldozed the ledges again by now which would make the entire park accessible to you.

I never got that advice. I got the "hell yea you better do Daniel out here for the first time." Speech.
