    I am glad that you guys are not injured. Glad that your cage worked! Now you have given me more to think about after our discussion at the trailhead Saturday.

    Oh definitely, encourage the cage 1000%!! I'd be in bad bad shape without it right now.

    With a cage also comes the added bonus of better storage and tie down solutions, which helps during those “less than ideal” positions. Much safer. Glad we made it through the weekend ok.

    Please be extra careful and alert driving home, for those who haven’t left yet. :D

    I was hoping he didn't go alone or a small group, and had some veterans on his side. Made my happy to see Chris in the pictures.

    Friday on cliff hanger I popped the front driveshaft u-joint climbing out the last ledges to road. It was a quick fix as just the ubolt straps broke and the caps shot off.

    I thought when the center comes off like that it’s because the cords separate, usually from being older and from sitting. I’m sure someone will say I’m wrong.

    Yep. That’s the unfortunate thing about trailers. Tires don’t do well sitting. You have a super nice trailer, good tires. But if they site for any time, the tires have a likely chance of coming apart when they have a load.

    I can not afford to keep doing this.

    Another tire gone. Checked them all with a gauge before leaving this morning. These tires are at least 8 years old I realized. Aged out of service.
