It was fine. We all winched the fall. I winched it with the winch clutch 1/2 engaged, so I guess I more or less drove it, but it is really washed out.

You really stand straight up and down. it was a good run, no problems.

I think Axle Alley is harder then H2H, now that things have washed out.

No, not unassisted. Schaefer seemed to think it was a bit more challenging this time.

Myself, Schaefer and the two Jeep guys (Charlie and Steve) that have been coming with us were the ones to make it. CJ Steve had water pump issues and had to bail shortly after we got off on Price Rd.

The rest of the trail was pretty uneventful as far as any issues. Other than my winch controller cable got snagged and snapped at the waterfall, so that had to be spliced back together.

It was a good challenging trail. I liked it.

The guy that was riding with Charlie (I think his name was Brian) was taking pictures. Not sure if we will see them or not.

You ever going to bring your truck out again.

Cool...sounds like a good trip. Yeah...I just have some maintenance issues that need to be fixed on the truck before it can go out again and I have not had any time as of late or in the next few weeks to take care of them.

Both front knuckles need a rebuild and housing needs to be resealed with Marlin HD seals. Power steering leak needs to be fixed and rear diff needs to be re-sealed. All minor stuff...but time consuming.

When did you realize that happened? Did the clutch pop out or did you not turn it enough?

At the top. I am not sure what happens when it is 1/2 engaged but it was pulling that is for sure.
