    And some more... Scott is in the yellow Blazer, VERY stuck. Note Nick's hitch after attempting to pull him out solo. Took three rigs to get him out... Everybody got stuck, except James, who was smart enough to stay out, thanks to the advice of his spotter (me)...

    John, If you put your pics on webshots let me know. I am sure you don't want to upload 190+ pics though.

    Looks like you all had a good time. How far is that trail form the Fort Collins area? I know it is southwest of Denver but how much travel time from Fort Collins?

    Looks like the rust got the better of that receiver hitch.

    I have some really good pictures too but I'm exhausted to post. Spent the day trying to absorb everything these guys were telling me, all the way home I made a list of upgrades I need to do. Thanks to everyone for the Welcome and John for keeping my driveline intact.

    Here's the guys.

    Nice pictures guys!
    How about a list off who is who on this one?

    Pictures didn't show up on the quote. The one with all the guys standing there.
    I wish I could have made it :(
    Oh well, maybe next time I guess.

    Okay picture fest time:

    First the mud pit:

    ktedesco going in
    [​IMG]

    Course I had to try.
    [​IMG]
    Note to self, MT/Rs not mud tire and 37" tires means bigger holes.

    This is what it took to get out, 2 K5s and a Pickup.
    [​IMG]

    A good 2ft of mud as seen on the stick

    More shots of ktedesco:

    Hehe, I told you so.......

    As soon as Gerri saw those pictures.....well let's just say she wants me to go out and find a beater Blazer to use on trails.

    Looks like I'll be getting a new toy soon. That's got to be the easiest sales pitch I ever made.
