    They're a little late but I've been busy. I ended up stuck in a notch and lost alot of paint and some metal down the pass side and put a nice dent on the bottom of my drivers door and rocker.

    Did you break? Why the winch? Maybe the pics are deceiving I know I took some that looked way steep and wicked but the pic just looks like there is no reason to have trouble getting up something.

    yeah the pictures are very decieving. I had ZERO room on either side. I was drug around to point the direction I was facing. And yeah it's alot steeper. The wall when we started was vertical I was hitting my rear tow hook on the ground when I first went up it. I was hanging from the winch just digging with the tires trying to make somewhat of a ramp.

    Nice photos! I'm sure that was down right frustrating needing to get tugged to the right like that and the fighting over that vertical ledge. No breakage though, thats gotta be nice!

    I don't know whats up with Kevin, I never knew him. Yeah Peter had the Willys and I think he's had the buggy for a couple years now.
