I really want to thank Kent for snapping those shots...it was awesome allowing me to see how much my jeep is on 3ish wheels.  Editing is easy when the camera is pointed correctly so THANK YOU kent, you did awesome.

Anytime, enjoyed it, seeing the skilled crew do some great trails and some serious wheeling.   hopefully something rubbed so nxt time i can push a bit more.   that last group run was really awsome.,..  :)

What a freaking trip!! All day wheeling Friday and Saturday.
Razorback...what a way to start Friday. Then later after lunch
when we started up this trail.....it got pretty rough and Kent
and Marc was able to turn around and head back. So jd30005,
outlawoffroad, 1987REDYJ, kvom and I continued on with the
trail whiched turned out to be CrackHead. With a lot good spotting
we all made it up. What a trail!

Razorback and the Jungle was awesome Saturday morning. Then
later on Saturday a small group of 4 = jd3005, outlawoffroad,
clark123456, and I went looking for more.....started on a trail
called The Moon, some decent rocks on it then came up on a tight
little right hand turn then up this nasty rock wall.

John made it and I was next in line. Well everyone started looking
for a different way out or around for me. They ask what did I want
to do and I said let me try it and if not winch me up it. We got
everything ready for a recovery....so here I go. Pulled up on it,
started crawling up it, slid a little to the right then bam walked
right up it. Hell yeah!

Shout out to clark123456, jeepson33s, vonschlick, and everyone
for the food!! As always this group show's why GaTrailRiders are
the premier Off Road Club.....

I'll post up pics sometime. 

Many thanks to Wes for bringing the smoker...EPIC.

Bill's Italian sausage was one of the best things I put in my mouth all weekend.

Shane really did a great job as a Todd replacement on the fire...so much better than Danny has ever done.  Tony and Jeff picked up where Shane left off on Saturday night.

Best joke I heard was about forgiving sins with holy water.  A variant of this one: http://kickasshumor.com/funny-joke/23425/4-nuns-stand-in-line-ready-to-confess-their-sins-t

Thanks to Danny for renting the pavilion and giving out the bunk house room on Saturday night to Kent and me...I think I'll be staying in those going forward.

The food was epic this weekend. A big thanks to all who contributed.  Pulled pork, brisket, sausage with peppers and onions and all the sides were great.  I am having that Monday morning feeling of joy (replaying some of the great times from the trip) and depression (when is the next trip?). Look forward to the next one.

I had a really great time, tore my Pass.FenderFlare the wife is none to happy, we will see if i can pull new MC fenders out of this ride.    Food was fantastic and the fellowship with friends was epic could not have planned a better "last ride till the wedding" trip.  Thanks to all for putting up with me and for those who lead groups. 

Found out that my..  so called binding issue, is still NOT fixed.  I had thought the bypass wire method turning the abs/tc off toggle seemed to work, but seems that after a weekend of wheeling, its back.   with the toggle flipped (abs/tc off) im still getting binding, its as if the locker or something is catching, causing my front wheels to bind(as if the front locker is engaged).    un plugged the front locker, still happend this morning.   it can happen at higher speeds but is most dangerous going slow turning a corner, can barely/very hard to turn the steering wheel, its like the locker is engaged(but its unplugged).    :(

I will need to take it back to Danny and the boys, see if they can see whats going on?   it had been fine for a good while, i had even flipped the toggle back so the ABS/TC light was off , it appears to be worse after wheeling/engaging the front locker off and on in 4wd, and then going back to 2wd ..   will update once AllSouth has figured out the issue, its very dangerous when u go to turn and u cant..  then all of a sudden it works. 

anyway..   other than that..  everyone stay safe I am guessing i will make the Nov. or Dec ride, but thats still sketchy. at this point.

Ditto, good stuff. Food and drinks are always good on these. Spoiled camping.


Oh, and how about conference calls from the trails on Friday morning???  Hahaha.

Update.   Zac was having some issues on the way home, so Clark/Tony/Myself waited for him to catchup with us, ..   big thanks to Clark/Tony (Tony's friend i forgot his name) worked on the side of the road by a run-away lane to get him in a better driving mode so he could make it home.  great job guys.
