Well whaaaaaaat an EPIC weekend once again . Thanks to Russ, Tyler, Cody, Alex , Dina , and Trev for sticking to the plans and comin up!


The tubs were awesome hot. Only one working when we got up there, so fired up the other one and two hot by Sat night ! By Sunday all three should have been working because we fixed eroh yeah fukn idiots still wrecking the place though.

Had wicked weather ALL weekend , Sun to Snow, back to Sun!

Enjoy...all you others , get your pics up!

The first set of pics is going to tubs first night ... road was getting pretty icy and snowy ....

after Alex and I were turned around @ Clear Crk the second night (Sat ) . As we got to 4km it became ALL ICE... three trucks were turned around and skidding down hill ,so we did too . After I slid down about 15 feet with Cody trying to stop it http://www.bcjeepclub.ca/Smileys/default/laughing001.gif finally had to crank wheel and gun it to turn Jeep sideways...pucker !!!!!
there about 2 feet or more http://www.bcjeepclub.ca/Smileys/default/wootrock.gif ..had to plow the road as it was fresh powder..Lots up at the Sign for Kookipi @ Granite Falls (too bad it was daylight to see Falls)last pic



So those last pics were us going to Kookipi instead...

these pics below are of our Camp and Sat night when Tyler arrived !!! http://www.bcjeepclub.ca/Smileys/default/wootrock.gif

so here is the Pebble beach round two I won this time [36]... some pics..others have more


and Tylers rig at then end is where he ended up after his RIG could not defy gravity. His hood was pointed down when he started...he flipped and did a 180 and landed up where he came down . Hopefully he has more of the day after .

Sunday was gorgeous with the Sun shining , which made the way out really difficult for Cody and Tyler , so some towing was in order on the snowy , icy spots.. Cody has some pics

By Sat night after all the snowfall and - temps, the road was an ice rink @ 4 km up. One hill we approached had 4 trucks sliding down. Had a pucker moment when i had to reverse in Low and slid for about 14 feet!!
Finally had to crank wheel and gun it to get sideways into a ditch!
Just wasn't worth it

ya thats sketchy, ive had similar shit happen with ice under the snow, once you hit the ice under the front wheels going up hill it spins you around or just sideways into the ditch or cliff.

maybe chains would help?? i made some 33'' v bar chains for the rear.

Chains would have help alot. Might have been just the one hill , but was
sketchy enough to go have fun somewhere else[36]

old thread, I know. but, any one have any other pics of my carnage? I was too pist off to take any...

my total carnage for the night was a broke axle, broke side gears, hub bolts sheared off (hub was spinning, tire wasn't), hole in the rad, bent rim (wouldn't hold the bead), and a shit load of body damage. Not to bad for a roll, could have been a lot worse...

oh, and the rear axle was shifted a good few inches to the passenger side. it's still an inch over, but it drives strait...
