Just got home. Had a great time. I stayed at the Hampton and since nobody was staying tonight, I checked out and can home. I was surprised they didn't charge me for tonight since I didn't check out until 5:30.

There were some awesome rugs out there this weekend.

It was great to wheel with the GATR group again after a 3 year break. Finally got to meet some of you guys face to face. Madeline wanted to drive the jeep but her mom wouldn't let it happen. :) Most of all Madeline and Stephaine had a good time. Madeline slept all the way home.

Thanks to Mark for taking this video. The tail end of this is when I broke my front driveshaft double cardan joint. I think I'll go around this obstacle next time.

Couldn't go further right and put your left tire between the two rocks? Turning left and you go through it?

I broke a front drive shaft in the green jeep going through there on 37".

Tried the right line and gravity kept sliding me left and couldn't get a good line.

It's changed a bit.  There was one spot to put the drivers tire...and it wasn't in a V since there is a massive 41" hole under the V!

Minor issue with contact at the hydro ram.  One of the fittings got hit hard enough to bend it and cause a leak. We removed the hydro lines and capped the box. I finished the day w out hydro assist.  Just a slight adjustment to the Ram location and change out one of the lines to a 90 degree fitting and should be good to go.

Big thanks to Danny, Bob and Sam for helping out with fix.

Love the axles and the new wheel/tire combo. Cooper's seemed to really hook up well.
