Hummer and Jeeps at The Gulches, SC 12/5/10

KA-BOOM says the driver's side axle shaft.


I was wheeling like an idiot on the rock slab off of Trail 6 and sure enough, I snapped the axle shaft clean in half. The worst part was that it was just the second obstacle of the day.


A couple of us headed out to The Gulches this weekend for some nasty rock crawling. Nasty because everyone knows how that place gets after the rain. Not much traction was found all day. I blew an axle shaft, my buddy blew an o-ring, so we both took our lumps. The best part though? I parked the jeep and the wife and I wheeled the Hummer (tow rig) the rest of the day! It did awesome considering it's the great white rhino. Fun day all in all.


Broke the axle shaft here:



Started crawling up, slid over to the side and then BANG!:



Couple of shots from a rock playground before I broke:

Note that rock posing is only ok if you are a girl
