Saw Artec post on Instagram that they ran it and were back in town for lunch.

RockWoRM On Hells Revenge about half way thru Doug broke a tooth or more on the front R & P. Lucky he has 2 sp. TC and rear locker. Then later, on the trail, is when Sean broke his leaf.
Next day we decided to do triple threat (me, Tim and Robert) and Doug still wanted to wheel. He did all of Poison Spider in 2WD!!! Amazing! But his Jeep is so light. My heavy pig couldn't get up Cowboy (I'm sure a lot of it is my driving/skinny pedal too. )


You going next year? What about Rubicon this summer?

He blew the front pinion apart basically 1/4 to 1/2 mile into Hell's and wheeled the rest of the way in 2WD. Then ran Poison Spyder in 2WD as well, didn't do the rest of the triple threat, just PS.

RockWoRM Will just put together a series of video for most of the week.
It shows my epic fail on Cowboy climb on Hell's Revenge.
(let me know if it works... can't see it on Wifey's PC)



There are also some new regular pics posted, in the NorCal site. Link can be clicked on in post #7 that Mr.B provided.

I LOVE the area, but the people flooding this area from the SF Bay and the CA political crap in general is why we are leaving.

We're thinking maybe going a little later in the year next year for the same reason. Would like to take the boy with me but he doesn't get out of school until the second week of June.

BTW, my wife has decided we're moving to your hood when we retire in a few more years. Any good wheelin' that way? I looked it's only 2 hours further to Moab from Waco than from my house now, so I decided to agree with her decision....

Yeah, Sean and I were talking about going a bit later next year, maybe nights by the fire wouldn't be as chilly.

I think you do just fine. These guys keep posting pics of rigs on their sides and I'm thinking nope, nope, nope....

shaggyjim I wish I was able to make the run with you guys looks like you had fun. Hopefully by this fall my ****ing parts will have come in.......

I'd love to, but the wifey most likely would kill me...

Sounds like a heck of a day. Me thinks those kind of trails are just a bit more than I'm up for. I wanted to cry (not really.. but was bummed) when I got my boo boo on pickle slicer!
Traded the YJ for the LJ in hopes to avoid the nickel dime breaks/repairs I seemed to be getting in the YJ. Now that I'm retired and on fixed income I guess I'm a tad bit of a conservative wheeler... as I'm sure Tim will agree. So next time if Pritchett comes up I'll ride with Tim!
