I enjoyed a relaxing and stress-free weekend with The Rock Vulture Fan Club. Jimmy's (NoKnowWhoa) Jeep made it just fine, him, not so much, he sorta ran outta giddyup. Helped that we carried his Jeep piece-by-piece through the big stuff.

Learned that backing into a rock is trail language for, "OK, that's far enough"; show up with ram-assist or be abused by Blaine all weekend; show up and be abused by Blaine all weekend anyway; it was not safer to ride with Bill; "bump" is pretty much akin to floor it but no bouncing; do not look away when Blaine is spotting, all-in-all an awesome weekend.

Huge thanks to Blaine and Erik for their patience, and we left fresh water for the rodents

From Sunbonnet and AfterShock

Blaine didn't immediately put a thimble on the end of his winch line!? Or was that after the trip

If I drank, that might have worked.

It wasn't worth the time it would take to have them respool 10 feet of winchline back in.

They are all victims of the world's absolute best winch saleman.

Literally you could spool out their cables all the way and have lunch in the time it would take to spool it all back in.

Blaine's Boots look like this! Pretty sure he's laying across my hood there, but I don't remember why
