Well rather than have a bunch of stupid threads, I am going to use this thread for summer fun..


This past weekend was my 36th birthday (THANKS EVERYONE !![cheers])

My wife wanted to keep it low key as most years the parties get way out of control.

Yes I know I can be a part animal sometimes...[36]


At the end of the day she said I could have a BBq, My sister and soon to be brother came over from Victoria and a few bums off the street came by..

On the way back from the BIG RIG show I felt a little vibration coming from the rear only under load, not coast.

Crap I know what this is.....

I got to the Mission bridge and it went from annoying to "F*&% !!!, I can only do 70 km/h.....!!"

I can make it....Been in way worse situations.

I pulled over just out of mission to check, sure as shit, rear U-joint was hanging by a thread. Put it in Hi 4 to take some load off the back and pulled into trafic..

WTF ???? steering is all over the map...


Pulled off onto shaded road just before silverdale to check this NEW PROBLEM out...

Rack and pinion FU&^ED !!:mad:

Called BCAA, called a few friends, tow truck came, Bryan and his girlfriend drove into Ridge and came back out to pick up the kids..
BIG THANKS [cheers] BRYAN (aka. theborges)

Tow truck driver was the nicest guy I've met in a long time. He let Jacob use the controls play with all the recovery equipment and then let him ride back in his truck, which was all rig out with DVD and movies for kids.

TRUCK 51 thanks a bunch [36]

You made a frustrating day a bit better !!

Took off last Friday to go to a 10year reunion with my friends from Surrey.

Turns out there was a going to be a wedding also ! [36]

I think it was the Hot spot in B.C. that weekend, the temperature was over 44 in the shade !!

Did some Tubing, took a rip up to the mine and had some of the best food ever !


Good times !![cheers]
