Sad to hear you guys can't make it Mark....
I was thinking since we gonna have a reasonably small group we might think about running Matino up and back down the wash
What do you think?

That is the right Bill.....I was just messing with him. Did he figure out a way to get out of whatever it was that might have gotten in the way of him going?

Cop buddy is Don. Actually he runs the motor pool (not a cop at all). He is the one who looked like I stepped on his toes when I said he might not want to take his expensive Jeep out to Mottino. Let's see if he takes the dare.

There is room for another. I see rain over in the direction of Mottino but (for the last few days anyway), the clouds always seem to show up about this time of day. We should have been up and maybe even back down that wash by this time tomorrow.

One broken jeep.





It was a long day for some. But any day jeeping with friends is a good day.

Good time as always, despite the carnage

Here's a quick rundown since I see some popcorn smileys..

Made it about 1/8th of a mile in and Phils Jeep died, wouldn't start. Tried for about an hour to get it to start but couldn't find the problem. So we resorted to plan B and decided to tow him back out. Some winching and strapping to swing his ass end got him going the other way, made it about 30 ft then the tow hook ripped off. In the process of that the steering box broke and he had no steering.

Managed to get the wheels pointed the right way, made it a little ways then he got wedged and ripped the other tow hook off. So we used a ratchet strap and a Jeep to point the wheels the right way, tied a strap to the axle (no other choice) and made it the rest of the way back to 247.For some reason the steering worked again in Rattlesnake Cyn.

Oh yea, about half way down the canyon his tire carrier fell off too So it was a pretty interesting day, but in the end it sure beats work! I think Phil is picking up a Wrangler on his way home though .

Forgot my camera but heres my cell pics.

Unbelievable that I didn't do any more damage getting out of that place
to be home (finally) and ready for my satisfaction survey with those nice people at AAA. I have nothing bad to say about AAA, but both of the tow companies could be replaced with a bad smell. Thanks to all of you that helped get me out of that wash. Sorry about messing up what started out to be a great run.

Oh damn that sucks! That's what happened last year about this time when they did a Motino run. Someone broke early and they did a do over run.

That's typical of Motino though. Seems that someone always breaks something.

Did Steve's group continue on the trail?

No, we didn't get him back to the highway till late. I wasnt checking the time but I guess around 3? Being that it was Sunday and the thunder clouds were over Motino we decided not to.

The wife agrees with you that a Wrangler should be in our immediate future, but I'm afraid it will be more shop time for a while yet. Me and that beat up old XJ have made a lot of memories. It will not be easy to see her go.

Well...I can say that yesterdays run did have a positive side to it. We all got a chance to hone are vehicle recovery skills...
The official time keeping for the run goes as follows... at the entrance of Matino @9:30 Phil's jeep went down @10:30 ...we had him back to the Hwy @3:30 and the flatbed arrived @6:30.
But even with all that said it was still a better day then the one I'm having today...lol

I'd like to get back out this next weekend. It doesn't necessarily have to be Matino but I'm up for something challenging though.

I was thinking the same thing. I'd be fine with Motino but something different would be cool.

Nothings coming to mind though.

If you guys don't put something together by 9/21 you can come out to Cougar Buttes and help us on the new Kick Ass trail for 37 tires and above.

I remember seeing this but can't find it. Sounds like fun though, I'd like to be a part of this if I'm not busy.
