    after that blue85 and bill went home, blue85 had a sitter and bill had a leaky tire /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif
    daryl and i drove around a little more, then i ripped my driver side mirror off on a tree and broke the window /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif daryl ran over the mirror before i could get out and grab it (door was stuck shut for some reason) on our way back to the front, we got lost. going down this trail, then that, extremely tight trails (though we were stuck for good) finely we got to this water hole. it was deep enough to wash all the mud from our wheels for a smooth ride home. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    i don't think you could have got a monster truck TIRE down half those trails. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif sorry about your mirror bro. and that six foot long scratch on the passanger side wasn't as deep as we thought.i think wax will get most of it out.those were some tight ass trails. oh and i smashed and bent my steering stablizer.when i pulled into the gas station after we left it was because the hubs wouldn't unlock. great pics. /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gifto /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif

    i wonder where you smashed the stabilizer /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    i went to the guy down the road from me, hes got lots of chevy parts, he wants me to trade his 3" front springs and 4" blocks, a window and some mirrors for my 6" springs /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif
    plus he has some 315/75/16 tires (with tread /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif) that he will give me /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif

    my truck might get lifted before i was planing, that way i can go through that BIG mud hole (the one with the group pic) /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    We showed up around 9:30 a.m and it was like a ghost town. We got bored and went to town for lunch. On our return, there was boggerless (Note: although Daryl is on CK5 and has the username boggerless, he was in fact driving a Ford with Boggers /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif) and a Cherokee with big fender flares and a winch. Boggerless and his friend Bill both had Super Dutys, so our CK5 get together was now 2 Fords, 1 Jeep and 1 K5 (mine) /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif.

    Bill charged right out and sank in this hole first thing.
    [​IMG]

    Remember the Bronco I talked about that was stuck for 4 days? Exact same spot. Here's a link to that post

    The Jeep couldn't winch him out, so I chained to the Jeep and boggerless strapped to me and we pulled him out like that. I kind of felt bad for the unibody Jeep strapped between 3 fullsizes. During this extraction Big83chevy4x4 (TJ) showed up. Then the Jeep decided to quit while he was ahead and go home because he had been hearing a weird noise from somewhere. He had a camper to pull home and had his whole family with him.

    So then this was the crew: Blue85 (3/4-ton Jimmy with 35" M/Ts), Bill (Diesel F250 with MT/Rs), Big83chevy4x4 (stock K20 with BFG A/Ts) and boggerless (V10 F350 with 33" boggers):
    [​IMG]

    We took a trail back to Field #2, where we all ran a mud hole. I went first, caught some air in the middle and blew through for big fun (see pictures abov). Next up was TJ who used tons of throttle and got most of the way through:
    [​IMG]
    Since I was on the other side, I pulled him the rest of the way through.

    Bill went next, slid sideways and buried it right away:
    [​IMG]
    We picked up a guy in a Wrangler at this point and he and boggerless chained together to pull Bill out. I think Bill was stuck in this hole twice, along with another one nearby.

    Boggerless went last and got stuck because he couldn't get the Ford out of 4LO. After a pull and a glance through the owner's manual, he made it through.
    [​IMG]

    Between Daryl's runs, this Wrangler made a run and kind of put the fullsizes to shame by blowing right through. He had been watching everyone else, so he picked the perfect line. It seemed like he didn't even sink into the mud.
    [​IMG]


    We headed out of this field on another trail. The end of it has these ruts, which look much worse in person:
    [​IMG]

    I had to back up a few times to make it through. Notice the "center rut" in the trail, which happens to be shaped exactly like the bottom of a 14B s/f differential. /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif
    [​IMG]

    (NOTE: Taking this trail was my idea because I had driven it the week before. However, I had already decided against running it the other direction earlier in the day because of how tough and tight it was. I guess I thought going downhill would make it easier. Sorry, guys.)

    Just before the ruts is a tight turn with a deep hole on the driver's side. Guess what happened to Bill? I think the stickers on his truck represent his payment options for AAA towing. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
    [​IMG]

    After getting Bill pulled back out of this hole, everybody backed out to go back to the field. I went around the long way to meet up. Since we were back at that big mud hole everyone ran, I decided to try to take it slower with a little different line. That didn't work. But at least I got stuck once because otherwise it's not really wheelin', right?

    Then we found a little land bridge to get past the mother of all holes to find that we didn't have to take the tight rut trail OR the big mud hole to begin with. Oh well. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif I would have liked to take some more trails, but we were out of time.
