Went up Norrish with Ucan2, EiEio, Tdonk, 78Fi50, Mucky & acouple of other guys (sorry can't remember your names) Rich was the only one to run the canopener then we went on up suicide pass, can you say SNOW!!!! 3feet deep and still coming down real heavy!!! We got to the top (eventually) then tried to drive down the oppisite side in order to come out at the sasquatch this was a real bad idea!!! Rich being the only truck locked still managed to get stuck!! After a lot of digging and lots of swearing we got him out turned him around and then started to turn every one else around. After a while we all started heading very slowly back down every one got back down with no damage. We then headed all the way back down to where the gravel ends. Then the fun began!!! I went to park at the front of the group of trucks pulled in doing about 40k hit the breaks and nothing happened!!! I ended up in a ditch about 4-5 feet down on one side. Rich tried winching me and I am not going anywhere!! Then we hooked up a CJ to a tug strap with Rich winching and I am still going nowhere!!! So I phoned my brother (Taz Jeep) he turns up so we have 2 winch's & a snatch block trying to pull me out!! And I am still going nowhere!!! So no options left iI had to bite the bullet and phone a tow truck!! Mission towing turned up and 10 minute later (and $91 of my cash) I was out!! I took some more body damage and it looks like I broke my crossmember off (I will post some carnage pic's tommorow) I would like to say a HUGE THANKYOU to all of those who helped espically Rich & Rob (Ucan2 & Taz Jeep) you guy's all rock!!! I took a couple of pics during the day no doubt there will be more!!!!

Yeah, what a day[36] Thanks to everyone of you guys[d][d][d] I thought Sue was staying up there for the winter waiting for a Springtime recovery. After a bit of digging/pushing I was on my way back up the trail @ 6500rpm[cool]

Nice meeting you and Harpdog as well Mark. Basher (The guy on 44's who went up when we were coming down) got back down with no problems he turned up just as the tow truck pulled up (just my luck) he went as far as we did and then came back down.

My crossmember hanging off this pissed me off as I payed someone to fix this for me just a couple of months ago. He bolted one side on and has just put 2 tacks on this side to hold it in place[16]

Thanks, Harris [d]

The plan was almost to pile into another truck and come get Sue today. There was another 15-20cm of snow comming last night. Would have been a fun recovery [aahh]


Your truck doesn't look to bad Dave (although it looks allot different in the day) [cool]



Woke up this morning to the whole house reaking of gas. I cracked the bottom mount of my fuel cell and there's a nice puddle under my truck in the garage. No wonder I woke up with a headache [V] Apparently the JB Weld did nothing. It seemed to work up there, I only burned a half a tank of gas all day and I was given er most of the day [freak]

Pics to follow after I air the house out [36]

Yeah, I can't seem to keep tie-rods straight on the New Sue. That's #3 [smack]

I'm gonna try and get this cell warrantied. It's only been in the truck for 6 months and thats crack #2 [V] The epoxy held on the first one and it's at the top... $400.00 from RCI, you'd think it would last longer than that....

Also, Barry (the dude in the black Jeep in my pic post) told me of a place called Leakers that spray the inside of any tank with some special rubber or something to keep them from leaking. I'm thinkin of giving them a call [?]

I just wish I'd remember to snap a pic of Sue where she was stuck. 6 Inches from rolling over down a huge cliff with about 4 feet of snow piled up in front of her. Could barely open my door we were so off camber and there was nothing to winch to [aahh]

But, after lots of digging (down to gravel] and lots of pushing from all my buddies, not only did I get out, but I got turned around and all the way back up the hill [5][5][5]

That was a close one....
