WOW :eek:


the trip in was the most nasty trip ever
as it turns out the mog does have a limit.

took approx 8 hours to get to the camp.

we got stuck in the first 2 k before putting the chains on
and let me tell you sliding towards a massive drop off backwards in a 12,000 lb mog [aahh] not cool [16].

after chaining up we try ed again and made it about 1/2 k further and the same shit happened[16] another drop off:eek: this time even closer so it was winch time. BUT

then the cable snaps [2b]

after a quick cable fix were starting again and climbing but loosing traction and drifting more so i jumped in the back ( i told sas it was for weight and traction but :o to be honest if we were going over the cliff i didn't want a door to get between me and a safe bail:D )

from there on in was sketchy the whole way but we did prevail [36]

but crossing the creek at night with the water raging was a little nutty [16]

here's some pics




leaving with a mog full of recovery gear ( thank god for the chains

the mog

wow thank god for the rain we figure bout 80% of the snow was gone by morning and more important the tracks we blazed in were melted traction wielding god sends.

look at the trail out :eek:

This has to be one of the best FIBC events ever for the folks that were not there, OOOOHHH the tension, the excitement, the drama the people helping and the people more than willing to help but with not too much they could do.
Then the pics and the stories that I'm sure will be told for many many years to come.
A great week for the folks on the site and a big thank you to Sass and Eric for the amazing rescue.
Glad to know you all ( including the ones i have yet to meet)[cheers] [cheers] [cheers]
