Face and neck unfortunatelly... long story, lets just say it was an accident and I give a huge amount of credit to BlingTaco of TTORA for taking care of me and putting me up at his place in Grand Junction... oh yeah since I also broke a CV axle on Moab Rim... These are the events that make great campfire stories later on in life...

Pics are outstanding. Moab is at the top of my list behind Arizona. It is hard not to enjoy those places.

Pritchett always seems to be either perfect or real bad. I always end up done early or out all day on that one.

How is the rear of the truck set? When my rig was little it felt loose on steep descenders. You look pretty tall and still with coils, bet it is usually exciting.

Yup, Exo will be this spring. The back end of the runner is too soft so I gotta figure something else out because I had a hell of a time on pritchett getting traction on the front tires when the back end would sink down on the coils. Again more props to Bling for walking me up stuff when things got tippy and I got scared outta my mind.

But most importantly, I was fine, and even more importantly my gal Nic will be fine. Yeah stories for the campfire... Ironic huh Nic?? LOL

Thanks everyone for all of your support and concern. *THIS* is exactly why I wheel with you characters!!!

Thats what ya get for calling your rig a "tippy b*tch". karma? haha j/k
I recently took notice to your rig...besides what i saw and read, i'm not surprised at what happened. Like someone else said; "do you ever have all 4 wheels on the ground"? I'm glad your ok. I have pics of my Uncle climbimg out of that same hot tub so i can only imagine how crazy it was for you.

I just wonder when you are going to explain your "flower" name to us.

Glad everyone is ok. Sometimes lessons have to be learned the hard way. Hope to be wheeling with you guys this summer if the funds allow the gas money.

The red truck is "BlingTaco" and the black one is "3TRDMARINE" both of TTORA. 37s under the red one and 35s under the black one... I know Bling is running D60 in the rear D44 in ft, ft and rear ARB air lockers, a Marlin Crawler, some other goodies and a temporarily bent frame (I know I drove the squirrely biatch from Moab to Grand Junction)

Looks like the tubs on Hells Revenge. Pictures really don't show those well, the walls are almost streight up and down.

There are also tubs on the top of Lions Back.

Now is that because of the wheeling or that building on 7th Street?

Both, the answer is both.

Oh yeah the flower name. Lysmachia Cletherodies. I grew up on a cut flower farm. I only know the scientific names of flowers.... My favorite flower happens to be scabiosa fama but um... that woulda been a hell of a screen name eh? "Hey I had a nasty case of scabiosa in college, but the doc gave me some pills and cleared it right up!"

So yeah, Lysmachia stuck. I've had it for 6 years now.... *grin*

That and it seems my other nick names are tippy [email protected] and now rolly poly... LMAO
