View Full Version : The Cypress adventure....... Full story and Photos

08-05-2008, 07:43 AM
Well it was a fun and full day on Sunday. We met up at the Chevron in Mission and headed out. It started as a big group and got even bigger when we hit gravel.

The plan was meet the last people and head up to find cypress point. The group got smaller as we went and we were down to about 10 trucks when we hit the old bridge.

With a wrong turn we found twin lakes ( i think) and then went back to meet the group. I decided to give FUCT a go (just Kidding) I think I did break the record for an IFS getting that close to trying it. (mark has better pics)

We got to the bridge out and surveyed the area. Well looks possible. So it was ROBO up first and with a few trys he was over the first obstical and onto the creek. The steep hill on the other side was too much and his winch packed it in. WalT!!!!! We need a rescue tug.

Warlord saves the day...... well almost loses the jeep first then rams lil RJ abit and gets past him. With Walt ahead rob could get tugged up. The it was 37dakotas try. Not a bad run and fast as usual. He had a few stuckies on the way but made it up and over.

This is where we decide to send the open open runner in.......... well thats when the afternoon slowed down. With the runner stuck the few remaining trucks couldn't get past. Which turned out well for them as 3 or more of them broke on the way back. Your welcome guys:D

So we finally got the runner out of the hole and reset the bead. Back off to Davis for dinner and a relax. To much work no more getting stuck guys.......................

Well Dean found a stump so it was on the strap again. Then when we got into the Davis trail Hilly blew something up front and needed pulling up a hill and out. Well great theres only a little toyota (me) left around to help. Hammer down Mikey, and with 3 good tugs my runner was pulling a full size up hill. Ford eh [f]

Back at the lake it was time for food and relaxing.There was a sighting of the rare troll boy of davis:D Thanks for a great day out guys and gals. Sorry for those I did block, it happens to us all one time.

Oh and one more opps on the way out to seal the deal. Crunched the passenger side off the last rock coming out of the tight line. So that left 3 out of 4 doors done, one bead, lots of waves in the rockers, one bent rear lower link, busted skid plate, blown power steering hose. ect. ect ect. I could go on but thats the damage list for me.

Sorry I missed it. Looks like it was alot of fun. Already had plans to go to the agrifair with my old man and the family. Did some wheelin on saturady though, ran into Mark and Dean down at davis. First time out with the wife and I broke my cardinal rule about never wheelin' alone. Lots of guys taking stock trucks into east stave and filling the holes with "recovery" logsgo fuck yourself . Took one through the draglink. All fixed now though.[36] Glad you all had a good time.
