Labor Day weekend

Had another "eventful" weekend with the jeep..
Putting my jeep on it's side is getting to be a pretty normal thing with me.
This time I twisted the windshield frame and broke the glass. Also a few new dents in the hood. Good thing is I needed a new frame anyway, and the glass was pretty scratched up too.
I was climbing a ledge, and was in the pedal, but I thought my spotter was in a bad place, so I got out of the power, and the jeep slipped back into the hole. Not sure if I would have done this without the let up of power or not???
Again, my cooler stayed closed, and most of my stuff was in containers, so the clean up was about 2 minutes worth.
Who cares anyway, it makes for something to talk about...

It looks like the tree kept him from going all the way over...Nothing like that for us this weekend. Other than a worry some rattle from Aarons t-case and the mystery reverse issue...nothing broke (on the trail), nobody rolled or even ran into anything (that wasn't on purpose).

Re: Labor Day weekend

I'm waiting on some pics from Nick, I hope his are better than my set.. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/chair.gif[/img]
Yes, the tree was in a great spot this time. I got most of the dents out of my hood, this jeep is looking pretty bad with all of it's body damage. But, you gotta admit, that for 6+ years of wheeling, it still looks decent..

Here's the one just before letting off the throttle.. As you can see he is a big boy, and I don't want to make him mad...
