Today was cut short for me on trail 35. We were about halfway through the trail and then my clutch stopped working. Tracked down a pinhole leak in the line from the master to the slave and patched it with rescue tape and it stopped leaking, but we couldn’t get it bled and it wouldn’t pressurize.  Learned the hard way how to shift without the clutch to get back to camp.  At least I could drive it back.

That stinks.  Any clue what caused the pinhole leak?

Probably just age.  I suspect it’s the original and after 18 years I guess it’s time for a replacement. 

What was funny Clark is at first I thought it was the clutch pedal linkage and I was all excited because I had the repair kit based on the issues you had in the past.

Well, carrying that repair part is what stops it from failing.

What am I missing here? Saw a recovery strap in a other photo, but it looks like a straight road

The only carnage I’m aware of are the side marker lights on Kirks trailer when he tagged my trailer when he dropped his stuff at our cabin.

Fortunately, No damage to my trailer.

I didn't know someone took a pic, and since I didn't get out of the Jeep I never saw the situation.  I was in 2wd high on the road and apparently didn't see that washout on the side.  No grip from the front and it just slid over.  Glad there was a tree there. 

My trailer backing needs work.

I did a similar thing in a similar spot...Maybe the same spot.  Not good company to keep :)

I had a great time riding with Chris and Shaun thanks to Chris for leading most of the day we even got in some nearly night riding on Friday.

I would consider that a “half night ride”
