Damage Report from Uwharrie... anyone??

OK, who broke what???? Funny how the easy stuff seems to break lots of parts. We had a great weekend. The welcomed rain made this a slippery, fun mess. Friday night was filled with mud, over-rev'ed engines,spinning tires, broken glass, rain-soaked clothes, and for me, a broken D60 front U-joint.
As expected, Pat left his stuff at home. What stuff you ask?? Well, lets put it this way..He just showed up with the company truck.. I guess Chris and Tracy had to supply EVERYTHING else. I supplied the ride for him..One big question...Does he REALLY have a jeep?? Did he borrow a camera, dog and jeep for the photo??
I know some of y'all claim to heve seen this jeep, but, maybe y'all were in some sort of trance, and were convinced he had one. Just a thought.
We got to meet a new BBS member Aaron. He was lots of fun to be around, and certainly fits in with the rest of us misfits. He did kinda of..well ummm, disappear Saturday night. In his defense he did out last Chris AND Pat. It was funny when Janet (the campground manager) showed up at the campsite, and asked why is Pat still awake. She claimed that usually on her late(er) night rounds Pat is passed out and the rest of the crowd is still kicking. This time Chris passed out before Pat...Very strange indeed..Chris did his best to fight sleep, but it overcame him with ease.
Being Easter weekend, Tracy put out easter eggs (Sat night) around the site for the kids to hunt in the morning. I just hope we didn't step or pee-pee on any of the eggs.
Caver Dave was the campground mascot.. We were in this heated debate s to who Dave looked like the most. I think we decided that Ronald McDonald was the best description. Picture this...Yellow jacket, white shorts, and red panty hose. Yes, panty hose...Man he musta have gotten them from the Salvation Army. I know no one in their right mind would wear that outfit, but him. I guess spending too much time in caves with little oxygen may account for this taste in apparel. Janet also claimed she heard Dave's voice from the other side of the campground, and that his outfit was appropriate

I'm sure I have forgotten lots of other details, and probably will be added below...Oh, and by the way we did do some wheeling...
Ricky...seeya...

Re: Damage Report from Uwharrie... anyone??

lets see... i bent yet anoter agr rock ram... some folks learn from their mistakes.. but I must love second chances.. anyway.. im buyiong a real ram this time.
once again tracy broke nothing and drove 5 hours home...she very nearly made it up dutch john right after i winched up it as well...
I learned that goodyear MTR's are fantastic tires...unless your driving in wet clay.. then they are completely useless.. i think stock wrangler tires would have been better..
I had to winch more this weekend that in the entire week in tellico.
I have never seen uwharrie so difficult... it was incredible.
the group was good, the wheeling was good, everyone is home safe, and everyone except tracy and richard have damage....
oh.. and of course pat......no damage for him...

Re: Damage Report from Uwharrie... anyone??

I only broke the eye off a front shock. The 5lbs. of mud stuck on each tire/rim made for an ugly ride home though. It was definitely the rudest I've ever seen URE.
Definitely a killer weekend. I *could* have been a bit loud.....NAH! [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] Panty hose [img]images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img], those were my best red Patagonia polypro!

Re: Damage Report from Uwharrie... anyone??

I heard through some other friends that Aaron broke something on Sunday at Dutch John and I dont think he made it back yet (maybe). All you are hearing about is Dutch John because that is ALL WE DID!!! on Saturday. Man that hill was nasty. I know for a fact 3 winches were "ganked up" trying to get our group up that hill, one being a perfect stranger. Ahhh aint jeepers Grand??? At least the company was good. Great weekend hopefully many more. BTW I don't think those were panty hose [img]images/graemlins/bs.gif[/img] ...they had to be Spandex!!! Later

Re: Damage Report from Uwharrie... anyone??

I blew the rerar portion of the intake gasket but not to bad. Just leaked enough oil on Dutch John so that Dave couldn't make it any further than I did. I flat towed home, if you didn't notice my F-150 parked in the corner.

I think it was spandex, did you hear Dave ran out of gas half way up Dutch John on Sunday. He was at a high angle and was having trouble pulling the fresh gas up to the engine. Then on an attempt to pour a little from the bottom of the can into the carb, a chunk of dirt fell from the top of the can into the carb. It worked out OK, thanks to that Optima and some WD-40.

I hope Niel made it home OK driving that full size waggy, I can't remember if there are any steep grades between Troy and Turdville.........lol

I had a great time, fun people, and these guys definetly have it together on the trail. This group is top notch.

Hey Ricky........SHHHHH................if you open a window.........and listen..........................................yo u can still hear Dave.

One of the Jeepster guys alerted me that Neil's pictures were on the FSJ forum.
