Had a good weekend despite my groups trouble. We broke a 35 spline stub shaft and 1480 joint, all got body damage not that that matters, flipped the Willys backwards on Copperhead Rd, and then bent the inside of a  wheel on 28 and added this diggin tire

About halfway up Copperhead he was bumping a ledge and ran up a tree, rolled over once, and landed on Marcus's TJ hood. Marcus was a good 25 feet away too so it had a good roll. Got him back on all 4 wheels and it fired up but the fan got in the radiator. Got it turned around and my other friend Erock drove it back down the trail to the trailer. Wasn't that bad until it rolled back on all 4's and into a tree. Got his hood and fender pretty bad. Cage held up and he was all strapped in and was fine.

I ran Copperhead, and there was one spot that we needed to winch.  Might be the same.

It was great hanging with the GATR crew again.  I really missed some of the regular crew, but I couldn't ask for a better group than the one that was there, just more more more. 

Many thanks to Marc for letting me ride beer position after my junk broke.

Allsouth and I will meet soon to diagnose the failure and get a Trail 4-proof solution.

I also have a serpentine belt issue (pieces started breaking off and flying around during my recovery), that I am pretty sure is related to the pulley on the power steering pump not being fully seated....a Torg issue.

Marc rode with me and witnessed 1st hand the issue with my steering.   he seems to think 99% its the steering box or something related, as i lose steering 1st, then cause i have turned the wheel off center but the wheels are not traveling in the direction my steering wheel is pointed the automated systems kick in, and start breaking left or right wheel to compensate...   

not sure but im guessing thats NOT under warrenty as im just over 50k miles.  :( 

no pictures of me this weekend.   yet again.  i need to just go out and fake some.  O well.  ...   //btt//

Golden mountain is a fun park. Didn't see as much as I wanted to but beat it hard on the trails we did.
