Turned out to be only two of us on the run today. Would have been only one, but I intentionally didn't take my meds so I had someone to talk to. Had no choice. TRICKEDOUT and others were a no show.

I left the store at 10 AM, heading westbound to the staging area. Since I was heading out alone, I called Broncobabe and left her a message telling her where I was headed, and what time to send the calvary out if she hadn't from me by then.

After unloading, I headed up the pipeline, with no destination in mind. I turned onto the first line I come to, and soon found myself pushing snow with the front end. I paused on a slight rise and took in the scenery. It was so calm and serene that I sat there for awhile just taking it in. I snapped a couple pics, and just as I had snapped the pic at the direction I had just come from, I saw them. Back on the main line, 7 wolves crossed the mouth of the trail, heading towards the north. They were a ways off, and since the truck wasn't running, they had no idea I was there. I tried heading further along the trail, but the hill in front of me turned out have too much snow on it. I only made it halfway up, and decided enough was enough.

I made my way back to the main line, and headed in the same direction the pack had headed, hoping to get a pic or two. I followed their tracks, which disappeared into the the timber, then appeared again, only to weave back into the bush.

I climbed to the top of the largest hill on that stretch, and was amazed by the view that greeted me. It was clear for miles, and the fresh snow still clinging to the trees set off an amazing contrast. I thought I would snap a great pic, with myself posing, but unfortunatley, I am not much of a photographer, and my phone isn't much of a camera. So, instead of what I saw, you see me posing, looking like I am taking a leak, which I assure you, I am not.

http://i126.photobucket.com/albums/p87/1tontoy/Image024-1.jpg

I came to the road, and decided I would venture further north, into unfamiliar territory. I idled along in 1st gear, taking my time. The first hill I come to was a gooder. I crossed the remnants of an old logging road, and started up. Luckily it was a south facing slope, so there was no ice on it, and the boggers could hook up. Sorta. It was a hard climb. I kept working the wheel, hunting for traction, and eventually made it to the top on the first attempt.

The other side of the hill proved to be almost as steep, and I eased down it somewhat sideways, alternating working the brake and gas to keep my decent slow, but the truck straight. Those boggers work well in most applications, but not on an icy hill, sideways, at 50* or so. At the bottom was a frozen creek, and I stopped to check the crossing out. With the axe, I crossed the ice, making sure I wouldn't go through.

http://i126.photobucket.com/albums/p87/1tontoy/Image025.jpg

Crossing, and climbing the next hill, I stopped short of decsending the other side. Checking my odometer, I was 9km from the staging area, and I got to thinking it would be no fun dragging my ass up and over all those hills on foot if I broke down for some reason. I turned around, and made my way back towards the road, and stopped at the top of the hard climb. Attempting to hone my camera skills, I tried to take another shot of the vista, while sort of posing. Again, failure, but not quite as bad. I also noticed that I had service. Wow. So I called Broncobabe again, to leave an updated message. She answered, and as we talked, the pack made another appearance. They were a long ways off this time, and I could barely make them out. After I started out again, I backed up and took a shot with me behind the camera, and was amazed it turned out.

http://i126.photobucket.com/albums/p87/1tontoy/Image022-2.jpg

I came back the creek crossing, and started up the hill I slid down. I didn't make it very far. I was lucky if I was getting a 1/4 of the way up the north face without losing traction on the ice. Luckily, there was a trail off to the west, and I thought if I followed it, it would eventually come back to the road. It did not. It was actually a bypass around the hill, and i came to the top pretty quickly. I stopped and took a look down the hill, and something caught my eye. I slipped and slid down to it, and after i found what it was, I didn't feel so bad for not making it. Somebody had snapped their winchline climbing the hill. Unfortunately, it was froze in, so removing it was not possible.

Getting back to the road, I headed west, and followed it for several kilometers. Contrary to what I had been told the previous weekend, the road kept going and going. I finally turned around, and headed up a road that hadn't seen a grader all winter. It wasn't long before I was pushing snow once again, and decided to turn around.

I figured I would jump onto T3 where we had crossed the road last weekend, and take a look for the west entrance to the trail that TRICKEDOUT and I found with the nasty holes. I ventured down the hill that gave Mex so many problems, and as I come down around the corner, I was once again enthralled by how beautiful it was. The virgin snow hadn't been touched, and the creek was open and gurgling where we had crossed it before.

http://i126.photobucket.com/albums/p87/1tontoy/Image034-1.jpg

After I eased through the creek, I was about to take the same trail we had the weekend before, and make my way around to take a look, when I realized that the line I was on continued straight, albeit littered with deadfall. Putting 2 and 2 together, I figured it had to be the same trail that we had found.

I grabbed the axe, and took a little walk, and sure enough, I had found it. I cleared all the brush and deadfall from the trail, standing up saplings that had become weighted down by snow, preserving as much as I could. I managed to clear everything I could find, with the exception of one log. The whole process took about an hour and a half, and for the last 30 min or so, my spidey sense was prickling. I couldn't shake the feeling that something was watching me. The underbrush is dense, and I could hear sounds other than the occasional clump of snow falling out of a tree and hitting the ground. I thought I was just making myself paranoid until that damn sasquatch walked out onto the trail. Shoulda taken my damn meds.

Anyways, after I gave Louie directions back to Boston Pizza, I snapped an "after" picture to complement the "before" pic I had taken of the trail. The trail is definitely not fullsize/non-body damage friendly. Going west to east, you run off camber, sloping to the driveside, then into the holes. My axe handle is 30" long, and comes to ground level when placed on the frozen bottom of the holes. When I entered into the hole coming from the east last time, I watched as my front dropped two feet off a ledge, and sink until the top of the tire was barely visible. She's gonna be fun when thaws out. The last shot gives you an idea how narrow the trail is from the start.

http://i126.photobucket.com/albums/p87/1tontoy/Image037-1.jpg

After that, I started heading back towards the main gate, just off the hiway. Coming over the second hill, I caught a glimpse of the pack just going over the first hill down towards the risers. I sped up, finally moving quicker than 1st gear, and tried to gain ground on them for a pic. Unfortunately, they heard me and broke for the bush. They were at the bottom of the hill, and I was at the top, and I managed to catch the last one in the open just before he faded from sight. He's there, you just have to look hard, along the left side of the pipeline.

http://i126.photobucket.com/albums/p87/1tontoy/Image038-1.jpg
Not wanting to call it a day, I crossed the hiway, then the creek after making sure it was froze, and started on the hillclimb. It was probably the most fun of the day. I never did make it all the way up. But it sure was fun trying. I made at least 30 attempts, and almost lost the truck twice. i was trying to skirt a washout, got sucked in, and tossed out sideways. A stalled engine resulting in lousy brakes, and wonky steering had my other self getting pretty excited as we slid towards a facility the oil company had recklessly installed right in the middle of the right of way. With nothing for room to maneuver, I managed to slide away from the tech fence, and get squared back to the trail. A couple more attempts proved that it was futile, and I headed back to the staging area.

As I headed back, I noticed a whine getting louder and more pronounced as I was driving. At first, I thought tranny, but after shutting the truck off, and coasting, the noise was still there. I got out, unlocked the hubs, and ran up the road in 2wd. Turns out I pulled an erman and took out the front diff. Called her a day, loaded the truck, come home and started typing this out.

Just as a sidenote, I want to point out that wheeling alone, or even with multiple personalities, is generally not a good idea. If you do, take precautions, such as giving someone who is familiar with the same area all the info needed to find you if necessary. Location, time expected back, route, and anything else you can think of. Carry tools, fluids, spare parts, and recovery equipment with you at all times. Spare clothes and a shelter of some sort is also recommended.

dooing it alone little scary?

The truck looks a little rough, but its damn reliable. I had called one of my moderators who is very familiar with the area, and told her where I was going, and what time I was expecting to be back. I don't run a winch on this rig, but I pack a hi-lift and lots of recovery gear. Extra fluids, tools, and parts, also. I kept an eye on my odometer, watching how far away from the staging area I was getting, and didn't venture more than a couple of hours on foot from there. I also have an overnight pack with extra clothes and two blankets.

I grew up spending all my extra time in the bush with my father. I took courses in school on outdoor education, and attended survivalists camps throughout my youth also. I have also been wheeling since I was very young, and have experience.

Barring a catastophic break down, or a serious rollover, which is entirely possible, but unlikely, wheeling alone, with the proper precautions is doable. It would definitley be an inconvenience to my rescue party as they would be coming from over 2 hours away, but that is why you leave that duty with someone you can trust.

Like I said before, wheeling alone is not a very good idea. I drove an hour to hook up with other wheelers, and no one showed up. The wife had the day off, so going home was not an option, unless I wanted to get bitched at. So going out and getting stuck seemed like a better idea. LoL.

BTW, for the rest of you, just thought you might like the shots I took. Alberta, BC, the wheeling is pretty similar. At least I ain't out in Saskatchewan, and shooting the pics from 8 miles away. LoL

Awesome write up and pics Dude!

I wheel alone all the time. No biggie. I'm the same, I leave a route map, location etc at home so someone can find me if needed and I am well capable of surviving in the back country alone if needed. Always bring extra supplies, food etc. And of course your truck has to be in good shape. I throw my camping gear in the back too when I wheel. Ya never know :confused0006:

Nice to see some pictures of something other than than the local trails and mud holes for a change.

I enjoyed that ... thanks. [cheers]

Well, we were at it again on Saturday. Turned into a gong show real quick though.

First of all, we didn't get unloaded and on the trail until 5:30 pm. Headed up the trail, and found out that we were on a bypass for a real nice hill. I drove down, then come back up, with the boggers chewing and the carb on the verge of starving itself.

After two of the other rigs headed down the hill and came back up, we struck out again, following the trail to where ever it may lead. It came to a "T", and we turned left, following a fenceline. After passing a couple of offcamber spots, we came to an steeper section of hill that turned out to be shear ice.

I slid down the hill pretty fast, as did the rig behind me. I walked back up, and our newbie in the group asked if I would drive his Pathfinder down for him. I found out two things on the way down. BFG MT's don't like ice either, and my size 10 feet are two big to hit the pedals seperately. One on the clutch, and the other hitting the brake and gas at the same time made for a spooky decsent, although his kids thought it was a blast.

We found a few little holes, but all had frozen bottoms, and didn't challenge any of the rigs. Then the trail ended at a gravel road. After some debate, we decided to turn around and try the hill.

I attepted it 20 or so times before I finally made it up. The other Yota with us, on 33" boggers tried as many times and made it up also. The Exploder on 36" TSL SX's tried several attempts, and was lucky enough to somehow stop on the hill with out sliding all the way to the bottom like before.

Then things got interesting. The winch wasn't hooked up to the battery, which we found out after I crawled through a rear window to grab the controller which was still in the back. So, we decided to try and tug the Exploder up the hill with both Toy's. No go. We did some winching, and got him out of the steep part of the hill, only to find out that his fuel pump cratered.

It took 3 hours to get him to the road. One of the co-pilots brought his late 90's 3/4ton back and slid into the trees in the offcamber section, ending any thoughts of getting a heavier truck to do the pulling. We finally got to within a straps reach of the GMC, and with his help, tugged the Ford up the last little hill and out to the road.

It breaks down that we wheeled for an hour, tried that hill for an hour, and spent 3 hours dragging the Ford out of the bush, in the dark, with no headlights.

I'll get a couple pics up when they get posted. I didn't take any this time out.

Me and a buddy headed out with his truck yesterday at 4:30 pm, and hit the trails with his yota. The trail was one that he had done many times, but I hadn't been down it myself.

He assured me that we wouldn't have to winch at all, as any bad hole had a bypass. He hadn't been in there since the spring, and we soon found out that the holes he could get through before were deeper now since the frost had come out of the ground.

So what you are looking at is a Toyota 4runner, bobbed, 4 linked and coiled out back, dual cases, an LC Engineering built 170hp 22RE engine, on 38" cut Boggers.

http://i126.photobucket.com/albums/p87/1tontoy/Image000-2.jpg

This is actually the second hole we got stuck in. The first was much worse, and it actually stalled out the winch. In this hole, you can see in the second pic how much mud the truck is carrying with it as we suck it out.

Just down the trail a little ways, it happened again. Ended up pulling a tree out of the ground to recover the rig.

http://i126.photobucket.com/albums/p87/1tontoy/Image013-3.jpg

After we did the trail, we headed back towards the truck. There is a gravel pit close by, so we decided to climb a few of the piles, to see how well the tires would work. Wade tried crawling them, but just dug in. Then with some momentum, he was up and over almost everything.

http://i126.photobucket.com/albums/p87/1tontoy/Image016-4.jpg
http://i126.photobucket.com/albums/p87/1tontoy/Image015-5.jpg

Except for this one. He come down it, and I convinced him to try it going up. His front end crested and then nothing. The rpm's went through the roof, but no power to the wheels. It seems that he snapped the intermediate shaft between the dual cases. He hiked back to the truck, which was less than a mile away, we were able to load it pretty easily. Just happy it happened there, and not in the bush.

After all the posting, planning, and general pissing around that is usually done on the retardnet, when it come down to it, there were two trucks out for the weekend. One was the yota, and the other was a fullsized GM on 37" TSL's, chained out back. Both were locked in the rear, and body damage was a-okay with both of us.

The next morning I got up at 7:00 and put some finishing touches on the yota. Basically, I got the air conditioning working, put the fanshroud back on the rad, and a few other small touches.

http://i126.photobucket.com/albums/p87/1tontoy/Image004-8.jpg

We were waiting on a few others, and finally headed down to the gravel pit, and climbed the largest pile, trying to get cell service. I couldn't get out, but Travis did. Called Rusty, and he was a no go also. So we headed back, and said to hell with it. It would be just the two of us, and we were fine with that.

http://i126.photobucket.com/albums/p87/1tontoy/Image009-6.jpg

We started down the trail, and it wasn't long before the winch come out. That 14 bolt out back of the GM grabbed and stopped the GM dead. An easy
pull and out he came.

http://i126.photobucket.com/albums/p87/1tontoy/Image006-8.jpg

My first stuck come in a hole where Wade and I sunk pretty bad. I din't go into it very far, realizing what hole it was, but I had no traction to reverse, so we snatch blocked me out backwards, and I was no worse for wear.

http://i126.photobucket.com/albums/p87/1tontoy/Image005-7.jpg

It wasn't too much further down the trail when I started having ignition problems. You could hear the arcing under the hood, and there was a definite loss of power. We turned around and headed back to camp, ten did a parts run. I scooped the coil, cap, and rotor from the newly aquired 4runner, headed into Rocky and had a quick pow-wow with Jim, snagged his spare coil just in case, and headed back out.

Everything was going smooth for about the first hour back at camp, but the wind picked up, bringing some really nasty rain with it. Trees started going over, and we were hoping one wouldn't land on us. It rained for about an hour or so, and let up, so back at it. Turns out the plug wires also needed replacing. Did the whole shebang, and had it ready for morning.

So heading out for day two (still no Jimi, lol), we hit the trail. I soon found out that I had another issue. If I let the truck idle, it would foul the cylinder 4 plug so bad it would start missing. Through out the day, we just kept replacing it, and the truck would run good till I left it idle, which usually occured when I was acting as winch bitch for Travis. But, there was a few times where he was tugging me out of a mess also.

Passing our previous days point, we continued up the trail. I advised Travis to take any and all by-passes. The first big hole we come to, he tries to high side it, but with no traction up front, he gave up and hit it. Not real hard either. Kind soft like. And he payed for it. That XP95000 was strung out all the way, with barely 5 wraps left on it, and had to work to drag him through.

http://i126.photobucket.com/albums/p87/1tontoy/Image003-5.jpg
http://i126.photobucket.com/albums/p87/1tontoy/Image011-5.jpg

I managed to skirt the hole with some finesse, driving up a young poplar, with
Travis spotting, and finally slipping off and landing on solid ground. Made it look pretty easy, actually, LOL.

The next set of holes had bypasses, with the quads braiding the trail extensively. Travis went wide with his land yacht, getting stuck in the bypass. The alternative however is a hole that will purportedly swallow 44's and not even blink.

http://i126.photobucket.com/albums/p87/1tontoy/Image012-2.jpg

After that, we came to the creek. The drop into the creek is steep, and deep. Making matters worse, Bucky Beaver had dammed the creek making it deeper. Basically, the yota isn't equipped to deal with deep water, and I was hesitant to try it. I waded across, and found it to be thigh deep, but around the corner, she dropped to over waist deep, meaning it would be about shifter high in the cab of the truck. We did knock off the top of the beaverdam, attempting to lower the water level, but it was going to take alot of time to drop enough.

I started weighing my options, looking for another spot to cross, and after some hunting, found an 6 foot drop off that I figured I could manage. Being ever saftey conscious, we stuffed the fullsized in behind me and anchored the rear of the truck so it wouldn't pass the front on the way down, as the bank was undercut pretty bad. I eased over the edge, and was on the bottom, in one piece, pretty quick. Piece of cake.

http://i126.photobucket.com/albums/p87/1tontoy/Image013-4.jpg
http://i126.photobucket.com/albums/p87/1tontoy/Image014-3.jpg

We had on more winch fest further on down the trail, but managed to get through it easily enough. We came to a crossroads, and elected to turn around. It was 3:00 or so, and who knows what was going to happen on the way back. We knew the creek was going to eat some time.

Arriving, I zipped into the same crossing I had used, and found that my front diff was on the verge of letting go. You could hear the ring and pinion slapping against each other. Watching Travis cross, the water level was no where near as high, so I decided to give it shit as soon as he was out of the way.

That was easier said than done however. I was suprised when he got his front end up the 6 foot vertical bank, but knew we'd be winching from there. I strung out the winch, finding the straightest pull I could, on the biggest tree in line with the truck.

http://i126.photobucket.com/albums/p87/1tontoy/Image016-5.jpg
http://i126.photobucket.com/albums/p87/1tontoy/Image017-4.jpg

Nursing the front diff, I didn't hit the bank as hard as I normally would have. I also took on some water, and the truck was beginning to bog, so I left Travis to hook me up. He strung out his rear winch, and started to spool in. The second I made contact with the bank, his truck began sliding backwards.
I hollered at him to back up so that his ass-end was just over the edge, and then pick me up vertical. It proved to be rather interesting. The first attempt resulted in my "assisting" the winch by trying to drive. It work well, until I over drove the winch line and the hook slipped off the clevis, and then the engine started to starve for fuel from being nearly 80* to the horizontal plane. I landed back in the water with a spalsh, and we started over. This time he winched me most of the way up, and I concentrated keeping the truck running. Then he just drove out of it, sucking me up as he went.

http://i126.photobucket.com/albums/p87/1tontoy/Image018-3.jpg

Then my charging sytem packed it in, and I was left with no battery. I yanked it, and we installed a booster-pak, enabling me to drive out, and all the way back to camp. By this time, we knew this stretch of trail really well, and were able to navigate it with ease.

I loaded the Toy up, we cleaned up camp, and headed for home. I took the Toy home, and headed back for the holiday trailer. I found out I had another issue. Someone scammed my 2" 5/16 reciever, so I had to swap balls on the reciever I had. At some point, the threads got screwed. There was also the issue of only having one pipewrench.

With the ball spinning freely in the reciever, I had to improvise. I brought someone along, and as soon as they saw what I was doing, out came, "You said wet shirt no break, not pissed shirt bend bar". For those of you that are lost, thats from Shanghai Noon.

Anyways, I grabbed a bike strap, tied it off, wound a stick through it, twisted it off, and away I went. I could only get the nut halfway on until it started spinning in my rednck pipewrench, so I strapped the ball down, along with the reciever, and nursed it all the way home.

Those TSL's gooed up pretty fast, hence the reason he threw the chains on. I offered to lend him my 40" boggers, which are brand new, but he said no. But even my boggers gummed up bad. Need more power, wheel speed, etc.

Truck is now retired. Pulling a 4.3 Vortec out of my little street rod and stuffing it in with a 700R4/241 setup. A built up set of diffs running 4.56's, and I should be laughing.

As for real wheeling, we got plenty of that here too. But with the company I keep, its hard to hit a trail over a 5 rating, unless they all want to jump in with me. And someday soon, I'll get down into your neck of the woods, and do some of the trails you do.
