    Just back from the Naches trip...all I can say is body damage /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif It will be /forums/images/graemlins/grind.gif /forums/images/graemlins/hack.gif now LOL. Both doors are beat to hell, both door handles are broken off, both side mirrors busted, both fenders dented, both quarter panels dented, both tail lights gone...but some how no broken glass, not sure how that worked out. My winch got used plenty as well, fun times haha.

    Anyways, the trip was good, still some people not home yet, 4xrick threw a rod on Chinook pass and Last I heard Donimator was helping him with that. I threw a rear U-Joint on said pass and busted up my driveline. Leadfoot067 had a spare square tube shaft that I put on to get home, which was about 100 miles or so. Square shaft worked well up to 50 mph or so, I was impressed /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif Might have done ok even faster, but I was taking it easy at that point.

    Anywho, lots of broken parts all around, long night on the trail last night getting people back to camp. Good times /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif I will post up some pics pretty soon. Too tired to give a full report but good times were had by all /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    I got 4xricks blazer back to my place at about 12:30 am. No issues with towing him down from the pass. I still feel bad about getting your blazer trashed Mike. If you want, bring it down here and we can chop and saw on our rigs as a team. /forums/images/graemlins/grind.gif /forums/images/graemlins/hack.gif /forums/images/graemlins/weld.gif

    Haha, it was good times, I don't mind the damage /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif I will have to come your way some time anyways to bring back Shanes driveshaft so maybe we can do a wrench day. I have metal for rock sliders and I can bring the welder with me as well.

    Also I am thinking about welding the [darn] out of the gov-lok and making it a spool, the traction would be nice and it is now basically a dedicated trail rig.

    Glad you got Rick down without any problems and as far as my truck I didn't have any other problems after the driveshaft.

    I had a great time too, had to leave early cause my roommate said he got called in to work, probably had more to do with him making an ass out of himself late sat. night than work though. /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif. next time you guys go wheeling I'll be sure to have a new axle in mine so I can participate in the fun. Sorry to hear about you guys problems on the way home mike and rick.

    Well, well, you all just don't know how to have fun unless you blow shtuff up. /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif
    Wish I could have joined you all again this year, but the sun and fun just wouldn't have waited for me. Did it rain on you all or was it all fun and games till the ride home?

    Nice pictures but did Kobe and her sidekick wheel? I didn't see either one of their rigs, If they broke and only did the ride up and back I will be very dissappointed /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    Kobe and Rick participated in some minor wheeling. They made it to the Funny Rocks and Moon Rocks with us, but did not go up the Kaner trail ver far. All the rain on Sunday made that trail an absolute mess. I think we destroyed at least 3 sets of doors and numerous fenders and I now have flat bedsides with hardly any bodyline left on it. I have lots of video, and I will try to get it on computer this weekend. I just need to find a place to host it.

    Rick has a website, I'd ask him if the videos can go there, it'd be sweet to have them online /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    I came home and told my parents that my truck is no longer for sale and that it is definately a wheelin rig from here on out. I am gonna strip the interior now and have ideas about losing the top and gutting the tail gate or taking it off completely /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif /forums/images/graemlins/hack.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grind.gif

    Yeah we all missed you out there, maybe you'll be able to make the summer trip...I hope I can myself /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    It was a blast though, a lot like the trip a few years ago when I went for the first time, except this time we all pretty much broke or dented something /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
