    Take lots of pics when you go.

    good thing you didn't come up. we were watching the weather and made a last minute change of plans. headed up early sat. am and wheeled yesterday. i didn't have any way of contacting you or i would have called. we stayed over night planning on wheeling today if the weather wasn't too bad. i was following a few built up rigs on some of the black trails and bypassing some of the nastier parts. just wanted to see what this truck could do on its first day out. i was done by noon after i pretzeled the rear drive shaft on snake bite.

    i also found out the cooling system is weak and the steering box is shot. so i have a few things to work on.
