Another uber-successful run, hosted by Bobthetj, w/ special mention for Gene13. Louie, it was a very challenging compared to Cow Mt. A little winching, a little Cherokee's sliding off the trail, more backing out than I enjoy, all in all one of the more fun runs ever! New guy JKTHOMPS brought his brand new JK and wasn't there to worry about it being new! We mistakenly took the wrong way at the "Y" and took the trail the scouting said was a maybe, and JKTHOMPS was right behind me!! Totally the bomb! Well took a cool shower and am going to sit down to some Chinese food the wife had delivered for me... (Jim isn't the only one with a Kewl wife lol)

It was a great day. I would have to say one of the best on the trails. Hope everyone had a great time too. Next time I'll try to pick a trail that goes all the way. Lol better yet I'll just stay in the back and follow. Lol

Thanks again! Glad you were able to make it! Other than a bit a carnage with Jcool's fender, and a little winching, plus 89YJBuilder's smoked clutch, I think everyone had a great adventure! Sorry to hear about your leg! Dang, stitches? I saw the scrapes on your arm, but didn't know you got it in the leg!

You aren't gonna get out of it that easy my friend! You WILL lead again! That's all part of the fun of exploring, you never know where it will lead you! Yeah, the turning around part sucked, but hey, that's how it goes. It's AN ADVENTURE! And besides, it took the heat away from me and my crappy navigating skills, lol!

Everyone made it out and it was fun. That's just how wheeling goes. Lol I do wish it would have gone all the way, it was a great trail. Lol

Great group of people for sure! Looking forward to the next outing! I did a quick run through of the videos, I have a solid two hours of great footage. I will edit it down and post or I can send it to anyone via email.

Hey Mark! Thanks for the caravan! I have some killer videos of your jeep from behind! Will send to you!!!

Oh and I came home and my wife said I didn't get the jeep dirty enough... Damn she's awesome! Lol

Thanks again everyone! See you all soon!

Haha thanks guys! I'd be lying if I said it was my first time

I was able to edit the videos down to the fun and exciting times. My gopro ran out of space when we hit the "dead end" so I missed winching out the other jeep. Damn that would have been awesome. You can see on the video the two times I was on two wheels hahaha its pretty awesome. I think I will mount it on my hood next time rather than my winch.

Well, just need to add some music tonight and will post the vids.

Anyone up for a run soon, maybe a place with some mud???

You guys alright with me posting the videos without music added? And license plates showing? I don't have time to edit them right now, but want to share. The sounds is just the GoPro being muffled...

hahahaha the music is the muffled gopro hahaha

Okay no specific order... but the first one is the decline... where stock jku wasn't supposed to go... video on the winch doesn't give it much justice, but still cool.
