    I will refrain from writing an overly detailed story and go straight to the pictures.

    Here's pictures from the Moyie Mud Bog- our camp area, and some of the rigs up there.

    Funny how out of the whole weekend I didn't take any actual Mud pictures. All the Mud footage is just on video.
    Here's before the big crowd came out Saturday morning.

    I think some of the craziness up there and crowd of over 7000 people scared away a couple of friends, but the rest of us and I had a blast.

    They told me that they had $1700 into it total. A '91 Suburban with chopped off roof, 12" lift and the big Firestone tires. All the motor, running gear and drivetrain was still stock, but they said eventually it won't be stock anymore.

    :rolleyes: 12" lift, those tires, wheels and other accessories such as the lights I see plus driveshafts (12" w/ stock length?!?) I would be shocked if it was under $1700. If so good on them but I doubt it.

    Looks like you guys had fun though.

    That's just what they told me. Who knows. Maybe they just already had all the other stuff to begin with. The rims were modified ones with the old centers cut out and GM 8-lug centers welded in.

    I know they made 1 run and a front leaf spring bolt either fell out or broke off. The only 2nd run I saw they broke something else.

    Here's a couple other views:

    All stock running gear... a 10-bolt front and 14-bolt semi floater rear in the Orange Suburban.

    My safety chain worked just fine. Even bounced up a little one run and lifted the tires maybe 10 inches and when it came back down didn't break anything.

    I have to wait until Wayne gets his video uploaded, then I'll have him upload my video. I have a feeling the taping with his camera turned out better, at least of my runs.

    If I upload video on my computer it doesn't include sound, so I'd rather have him do it and get sound.

    Its a bit over 100 miles.

    This was my amount of travel:

    Saturday May 6th from Spokane to Ione with Crew Cab and trailer (85miles), then from Ione to Moyie Springs with the Motorhome to leave it (130 miles). Then got a ride back to Ione in Greg's Fiero (130 miles).

    Sunday May 7th from Ione to Northport in the Diesel (about 40 miles) to watch mud drags there then returned to Ione (40). Then from Ione to Spokane in the Crew Cab (85 miles).

    Wednesday May 10th from Spokane to Moyie Springs in Crew Cab towing Truck Blazer (about 110 miles).

    Sunday May 14th from Moyie Springs to Ione in the Crew Cab towing the Truck Blazer (130 miles) then immediate return (130) without trailer to Bonners Ferry where Wayne's Bronco tranny went out. Triple A towed the bronco but not his trailer with Mudallica on it. So I tow Mudallica back to camp with the Crew Cab.

    Monday May 15th Wayne takes the Crew Cab towing Mudallica back home. I drive my motorhome following Sam's motorhome to Ione (130 miles). With a stop in Priest River, Idaho to weld up Sam's bent trailer hitch.

    Then Sam and Marvin continue on to Kettle Falls and I do a few things and then drive the Diesel from Ione to Spokane (85 miles).

    I guess I drove alot in the last week and a half just for last weekend.
