On friday we ran lower and upper Collatoral Damage.
Was a ton of fun... poor Ross had a tough time though... broken yoke on the tcase output shaft, broken rear driveshaft, broken front ring&pinion, one cut MTR beyond repair and 2 blown beads, synth winch rope broke 3 times and 1 broken nylon strap. All on the same jeep! He was a good sport and didn't once complain. We all had a blast. We had to drag his jeep through the rest of upper CD and back to the freeway but was a good friendship bonding. lol. Joe trailered the broken jeep and drove his own trail rig back home on the freeway hitting his rev limiter at 50mph!
I don't think Joe will mind me posting a link to their webshot pictures...
then on Saturday me and my older sister Debbie went on a MUCH tamer night run in Sedona. it was fun and casual but very cold on the long drive back down to phx. fortunately I found a great deal on some indian blankets... 3 for $20
after the Sedoan trail run I waited till everyone was aired up and on their way. One family brought two YJs and a little ways down the road they were pulled off to the side. The son's YJ had a leak in the rear drum somewhere... dented the drum itself pretty good. I clamped the brake line going to the rear axle with a couple of vice grips (two were used cuz they had a long drive down back to PHX and if one fell off he'd still have another vice grip holding the line). So now he had pressure again to at least use his front brakes. Just goes to show that even on the tame runs, stuff happens. I got an email from them the following day and they were safe at home and very grateful and they too had a blast.
