However CanadianCrawler ran into some technical difficulties. Broke the front driver main leaf. He thought it was a berfield that snapped, (made same sound when he was in Moab) so we didnt even notice it was the leaf until we got back to the challet. By that time the next leaf down was wearin a hole (but not quite) into his frame rail. We put some wood between the spring and the frame to prevent further carnage, and left the truck at the challet sunday while we explored Grizzley cabin. Upon return to the crowfoot challet Hamburger's beer and cooler were missing. [13]

On the way up to Grizzley there are plenty of spots to tag diffs. Most of the way up though the rocks there is water trickling down. It is a nice climb.

On our way out, the year before we all parked up on this "lil hill". So I figured WTF and went to climb up. Gotta love the low hangin gas tanks on 4Runners! (What really sucks is that I removed the skid pan just before the trip!) We plugged the hole (which I could get my thumb into) with some metalic scrub pad, and some of that epoxy puddy stuff. Sealed it off with some gasket stuff??? It got me home! Thx MUCHO GRANDE [h]HAMBURGER!!!

Some F***ERS decided it would be fun to torch a quad just before the trail enterance. Like right in the middle of the road. There are huge cedar tree all over the place. Surprised the hole mountain side wasnt glowin orange! [13][13][13]

We all take turns breaking our trucks at some point BAM. And the best time to break is when your with other friends/trucks, and not stuck with your thumb plugging a hole in the gas tank. HEHEHEH

I went up open diff'd on bald 35's 3 years ago. Yeah it was a bit challanging, but I made it just as far as the built up rigs.

Hope ya make the next year run, it's easy fun. [36]

And yeah Lincolon, my thumb was frozen boot stiff by the time we got all the gas out. Felt like I cut it off and stuffed it in there, as it is all covered in cuts now. HEH HEH [36]
