today was supposed to be a weekend trip to the hammers, but ...well.. I broke my junk again.
met up with some nice folks and headed toward wrecking ball.... wow thats a long trail in hammer type terrain!
we started 13 jeep,an old bronco and a sammie
200 feet into the trail 2 head for home axleshaft stuck in the ARB..of course on he long side
ok...11 jeeps, sammie, bronco......
300 feet later a jeep blows a d-44 iner axleshaft, but he has a reload.
we looked like this:

Now the carnage really starts....rear driveshaft, steering box, burned up winch, bent track bar, fried steering box...etc etc etc.. there was plenty to go around.
the trails were tight in my full width rig...

then a whole lot happened... everyone broke and noone was in the mood to take pics... untill we neared the end of the trail..and we finally got to a waterfall that has no go-around;
some made it, some tried really hard, some failed.
petyg tried really hard:

somewhere along the line I took an optional and bent my track arm.. bad enough where the jeep wouldn't turn. I had a spare along, but the bolts were too small and kept snapping..frustrating, but not really keep me from doing the trail.
so.. of curse... I get no pics of me on the waterfall... mostly cause I climbed right up it...(honest) [img]images/graemlins/censor.gif[/img]
