That is totally understated, It doesn't even begin to describe how much fun was had.

Hey fellas, thanks for attending my little Warn winch demonstration clinic on Sunday. I have to admit, I was able to make a pretty complete demonstration on correct use of a tree strap, using of a rock instead of a tree, and use of a winch extension strap. Luckily I was the main one having to hump it out Rocky Uphill with my rig and winch. Everyone else pretty much made it out okay. Maybe watching me pick all the bad lines helped everyone pick all the good lines. I think I was just having a bad go at the day. However, despite the frustration, I did make it through all of Firebreak 5 and the rest of the day without getting stuck.
Regardless, glad to see everyone, even myself had fun. More importantly, we all made it back rigs intact and no one got hurt. I have to say that muddy section of University Firepower was the highlight of my day.
Look forward to the pics Moony John has, hopefully he won't post the pics of my winching clinic.

See the rest of you fellas this Wednesday, they are calling it a 70% chance for rain, so I think we will have similar trail conditions.

I was winching right behind you. On the plus side my winch is 6 months old and thats the first time it's been used. Worked great! lol Upset I didn't make it up the mud hill, but I had an upset passenger by that point. Think I just needed a bit more wheel speed to clear the tires. I was wound to 5k in 2nd but probably should have tried 3d gear.

Thanks again for leading and for winch help.

It was a great run! I like the sloppy conditions until you have to clean the follow days.. Took me a solid few hours to powerwash, handwash, and then vacuum the interior out. Worth it though. I have been working on getting the pictures uploaded and Im sorry if the amounts of pictures arent fair, alot of them were blurry or out of focus.. my lens is taking a crap on me. I dont know all your forum names so forgive me when I dont know whos is whos! Ill post them in order of jeeps.

skjeeper? (your avatar is messing with me)

Island





The rest is when I get lost lol

Sweet pics! Thanks for using photoshop to digitally remove the winch line from those pics on Rocky Uphill. Just kidding, sorry some of the pics didn't turn out, but your camera settings are good for action pics, the wheel spin blur makes the pics look "alive" rather than just "frozen in time".

I hear yah about washing the Jeep. I was tempted to clean mine, but seeing how it's raining and how I am headed out again tomorrow, I just said "forget it". Now I will have twice as much mud caked on.

See ya again soon!

LOL, there's so much mud in the spot where I park at work. Every time I open and shut the door, dirt/mud falls down from the Jeep

FireMike, Cool, I was not trying to offend you or anyone, But sometimes posts seem that way to others reading it. Again, anything I said was not intended that way.
