    Just thought i'd mention that Sandman made it up the rockpile at the end of pritchet canyon friday...i allmost got a picture of him doing the deed but could'nt get out of FWP's K5 fast enough. Friday pritchet was wet and snotty making obsticles like rocker knocker a real pain to surmount. On the same trail we had one roll over...which was juanblazer...no body was hurt and the only damage was a front windshield...

    Saturday the main group ran Pritchet...i can't comment on what happened other than there was plenty of broken parts which made for a late night...we got a blow by blow as they filtered back into camp...seems even Mr. Watson had some breakage this year...a full throttle assult on the rock pile caused the breakage which i hear was a front driveshaft and the actual tube twisting in the pumpkin housing...can't comment anymore as to who and what...but the az boys helped sandman saturday night solve a dana 60 yoke issue and had him back in action as sunday was to be upeer hellderado..but there again i left for home and don't know how it all washed out.

    PS. Ran into some chrysler engineers on top of the moab rim on sat playing with a NEW POWER WAGON....looks pretty damn neat...

    Dang, glad to hear everyone was okay. It looked liked it may have been raining in Moab this weekend from what I saw on the TV. Still would have loved to go. Just couldn't be. I await everybody's return home for all the stories and pictures.

    A budy of mine got a job with a 4x4 mag and was up there last weekend with those Power Wagon guys. He liked the truck but said it didn't have any power down low (but lots up high). He said it needed gears (it already had 4.56).

    Glad you guys are having fun!

    I think that first day was perfect for me. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I got the rock pile done. /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif

    Lets not talk about Upper Hell though. I'll be pulling the front diff apart this weekend. I hope its just the ring and pinion. /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    We went through upper hell. It went really well. The only major problem was me blowing parts and gear oil all over the final waterfall there. I had to drive out in two wheel drive and no steering. Sucked bad. Other then that it was a good day. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
