Had a blast today. Great group as always with GATR. 

I have to say that Pat is a bad ass with his rig. Really impressive.

He got a little too high on the drivers side on V-notch and rolled. Very slow roll and he is fine. He was strapped in and what was also impressive is that not a single piece of gear came out of his rig. The GATR crew went into quick recovery mode and Pat gave the obstacle another try.

Pat going up the left side of RBD


And after you climb RBD, of course you should just come back down the right side. At least, that's how Pat does it.

I pointed that out to my wife. She said someone needs to supervise.

I had a great trip to Morris, again.  They've started logging some, so hopefully that expands the park, once the heavy rains (and buggies) come.  It was nice to see new folks and the old ones. 

It took some time, some spotting, encouragement from the GATR family, and some risk, and after taking 1/10 of my tread away, I cleared v notch.

Thanks to John for dragging me off that tree on Los Primos.

Friday I picked up a new noise, but it magically went away...sure it did.  Then I had a different new noise this morning, but it went away.  The thunk is still present...but after the beating I gave the Jeep on v notch and GBU, I would be very surprised if it was drive line related.  I'm suspecting it's Johnny joint related, but I really don't know.

Had a great time today guys! 

Busted up a plastic window surround and looks like I bent a rear lower control arm.  Didn't get any pics today, hoping others did.  Sorry I got there late and missed some of y'all.
Dang.  Heavy rig.
Metal Cloak?  Will they replace it under warranty?

I am good at that...well, the 'not working' part of supervising. 

To be clear, I did end up participating in the recovery...a little

Had a blast this weekend even though the trails were a little wet.  Killed the Park twice, Friday with John and Clark then Saturday with Shane, Jay, Sam and Don.  Oh and then there was the lobby party with Shane, CIndy, Clark, John, Gerald, Danny and 4x4King.

Don't let Popeye fool you. As soon as he finished his spinach, he whipped the jeep around and winched me over. And gave me a quart of oil. (I'll bring you a replacement on the next ride @clark12345)
