Carveacre - May 27th

Well, I had a good time except for my FLOP! Relatively minor damage and thanks to all that helped me set my truck back on it's feet! Didn't take any pics, but I'm sure people took plenty of my truck on its side.

There was plenty of power steering fluid where it shouldn't have been, but the damage was otherwise cosmetic. The front alignment is still straight and my sliders only got a small ding!

Doink!




A shameless poser shot for prosperity's sake

I flopped right after coming down from pancake rock where there is a long rock that I attempted to park my truck on, but was too hasty in my park job. I already had the tranny in park and the ebrake pulled when I felt the truck tip over. Luckily I had my seatbelt on or I would have smacked right into a large rock that would have broken my window (and me) if I hadn't put the window down way before.

Dude you're crazy! Glad to hear everything is relatively OK though. Not even Herculiner could save you here.

OH and Happy Birthday BTW!

That was a really good time. It was really cool to meet all of you. By the end of it, it was almost relaxing. Honest!

Wow Tanto, that two-tone painjob looks way better with a picture of the whole truck. I wasn't sold on it from the thread about it, but those were all close up shots. Looks real good (to bad about the smashy-smashy). Hey, perhaps it's time to cut a hole in the smashed up part of the fender and drop a custom snorkel in there!

I had a great time and must say it was an exciting day. Great wheeling! Good people! Awsome weather and beautiful landscapes! What more could you ask for?

Some pics of the Carvacre run:


























And some shameless pics of me posing at the Corral Canyon Run that Adon, his wife and I did after Carvacre and must say you guys really missed out on because the fire observation tower was open and we got to go up and get a guided tour by Norman. THe wheeling was good also!






I made it up that frickin rock this time Josh!

Thanks again to everyone that came and as usual all quality people to hang out with!

We're the ones with the red 89 pickup. It's Wintermute's and mine.
