Glad Sean had his trailer there. After we took off I decided to follow JC's lead and got a little more rock rash on Chicken Rock. Went up once without spinning a tire, came back and the second time was just spinning my tires and squashed my license plate holder on the boulder just to the left. Lol, good times though. Glad we were able to meet up with you guys!

I hate that boulder. LOL. Probably the same one I hit, at least that rock now has a bunch of red paint on it to warn others

Good day other then some boo boos which almost everyone got. I think Toad still wins for boo boo of the day! I guess now I have an excuse to get some corner guards on mine.

Great run and new friends makes for an awesome day. It was well worth the boo boos. Hope to wheel with you all again soon.

I'd say the trails lived up to their reputation as we went in with six jeeps and only came out with two unscathed!

Fortunately it happened on the way back and was by Bull frog trailhead. Sean was able to get his truck and trailer within 100 feet from where it happened.

Very lucky indeed, it worked out much smoother than i had first anticipated. We enjoyed a nice dinner with Sean, Mackenzie and the boys while waiting for triple a to arrive. The tow truck came early and the driver was very pleasant, made for an easy ride home.

It really wasn't that bad on the trail either, after we mulled over a few ideas and options everyone jumped in and put the plan in action. Sean thought of connecting the broken shaft and Pittman arm to the front bumper with shackles. Juan ended up using both our fronts and three of seans shackles to get it secured. Then as jenn drove slowly we kicked the tires which had just enough play to maneuver her onto the trailer under her own power.

Sean and his trailer were valuable assets for sure. It could of been much worse.
