Had my bud Jason up from Abbotsford again this year (SoloXxX on this board).

EDIT: Some vids rated PG for coarse language... I guess.

We did some trail running on Friday down a trail with a hill climb that defeated us last year cause we didnt have 4wd. 4wd made short work of it this year.

Here's me dicking around with the dual transfer cases.

We went a little further this year and climbed up this ledge: (No, it isn't 2010, but try telling that to the camera:confused0006:)
On the way back, the front driveshaft started to make some noises, more on that later....

Went back up on Sunday around 6pm-ish, watched Ray go through the little pit.

Then I got talked into going through the pit.

And yes, I forgot to put in 4wd.... again. 2nd time that day. Dropped into the pit only to find no forward momentum..... For the record, I blame my twin stick, used to operating just one I guess.:dontknow: Once in 4wd, truck just puttered along.

On the way back the front shaft started making some nasty noises.

Here's why it was making that noise. Cap worked its way out cause the clip came loose. Much further and I would have lost the cap competly.
I had to take it out of 4wd because of the shaft, so I needed a tug to get up the bank.

Here is the tugger soon to be the tuggee, got hung up on the way in.

We ended up sticking around till about 10:30. Ended up lending a hand to fix a Ford alternator.

It was an enjoyable weekend and am looking forward to next year.
