I take responsibility for us camping where we did. Coming through a deep hole, the snow and ice shoved my lower rad hose into the fan. I tried a fix of some rad hose repair tape, but it didn't hold. I then added duct tape, the last of the rad hose tape, then more duct tape, but my attempts were futile. It was 8pm at this point and there were only about 6 trucks through that spot, and the rest were struggling.

The fix that got me home:

Lodestone Lake, where we met up with James and Bob were. I had to put my sandals on and go for a walk on the lake....it was SO refreshing. Danny whipped out the bbq and cooked up a bunch of dogs and burgers for dinner:

Man I hope I get my jeep 'fixed' so I can run the whip this summer... I haven't met the owner of the blue mog yet. Is it the one with the welder in the back that lives up in N.Surrey? A mog is one of the few things left on my list of vehicles to own.
