    I offer the following defence. The holley didn't kill my rig. Its been flawless since the "offroad rebuild". My rig was twisted to the point my clutch linkage was bound up and I had to shut it off to shift gears. Couple that with mutiple "go left", "go right" my approach was at best, tainted. BUT, I perservered and listened to to the guy closest and overcame the obstacle. Damage was limited to some seat cover missing. ;D I asked my 12 yr old grandson riding shotgun if he got scared and his reply was, "nope, ain't my truck, yet". He has been to Hidden Falls too many times. ;D Fot those concerned if there rigs can handle Hidden Falls, I drive a long bed with open diffs, a very modest 2"lift and mildly warmed 360 and the standard turning radius around a football field. NO ONE gets left on the trail. There were broken axles, driveshafts and brake lines. All of them were fixed and back on the the trail inside of two hours. Hell, there was a flipped Jeep that back up in running inside of 30 minutes. There also was a stone stock Ramcharger on street tire that virtually everything. We won' talk about the 2wd D100 that went everywhere the 4X4's went with miminal assistance. Come on out on Labor Day!!!! The memories will last a lifetime.

    No doubt about it, this is great bunch of guys to wheel with.  We played hard, ate like kings and everyone was welcome.  No one has ever been left behind and I've seen them help other rigs on the trails not in our group.  Mechanical recovery and obstacle recovery is all part of the fun and there is no shame in testing your limits. {yes}

    pushing Stanley my CJ to its limits was the plan for the weekend. mission accomplished. everyone did a really great job get me back upright. my 9 year olds decision to make Stanley go up a hill that wasn't supposed to resulted in a broken drive shaft. but be we crippled into camp and welded it back together in a rainstorm. I was underneath the truck doing the best I could and all of a sudden pops up a fold up tent on top of me. you guys are awesome ! Hidden Falls is difficult as you chose to make it. if something looks too difficult there are by passes for most trails. well worth the time and money to get there and set up. kinda have a reputation to uphold here by providing entertainment   so no telling what is to come. everybody come and join us that can on Labor Day ....

    Here's a view of a couple of us on a small obstacle on what used to be a easy trail.  It was harder due to still being wet from the recent rain and somewhat harder than the last time we were there.

    Bear in mind that my truck (yellow Willys replica) has open diffs and still under construction and Richard's Dodge is 2 wheel drive.
