    Looks like a damn good time up there especially without giant groups clogging trails! What does grapevine look like up there now? That’s the last trail I broke on at the exit in my zj smdh

    Jody "Guys the exit to fish fossil isn't that bad. Y'all can do it."

    I ride over and take a glance at it.

    Nakoma "Its just a hill climb. Doesnt look bad"

    I put it in 3rd and drop the clutch. Make it about 2/3 the way up. Look up at Jody at the top of the hill "Back up and punch it". Made it up the hill about a foot at a time with Jody repeating "back up and punch it each time" dragging the diffs up the whole way. Pretty sure my tires weren't even touch the bottom of the tire grooves and I was using the beadlock bolt heads to dig in the bank to make it up.

    Jody's other quote of the weekend "Your good your not going anywhere. Hit it again"

    I wheeled harder and tried more stuff than I ever have before. And it was a damn good time.

    It was a great time. The new guys picked a heck of a trip to have just started out wheeling. They done well and I believe they had a great time!

    Jody is a heck of a guy, better looking on FB, but he’s a great guy.

    Smoked Pork Loin will now be the norm if I’m arriving in time.

    Nakoma was in Panama in 97’.

    Nakoma is now the new trail planner, due to his 100% accuracy on Thursday night projections of Friday.

    Chris Keziah was shut down early in the game and had the pleasure of riding Jody, I mean with Jody....
    Adam had the misfortune of riding with me. Took him 1 full day to get used to it and understand that my Jeep gets beat like it owes me money, because it in fact does owe me lots of money. He learned to trust me and was comfortable with a “full send” by lunch on Saturday. Good times.

    My confideance (or ignorance?) and my balls are big enough to follow Jody anywhere. However my rig is not. I still managed to pull off some crazy stuff!

    My rig needs quite an overhaul now and is gonna be down for some time. But I had a freaking blast, as always Harlan is a great time!!

    So many other awesome hilarious inside jokes I’d love to reference, but it’ll just be that much better to laugh about in person as we all make new ones next time.

    I knew you guys could do way, way more than you thought you could yourselves. A little white lie or two made the trip worthwhile!
    It was a great weekend for sure. I needed this weekend more than you jokers will ever know

    Those are the flames of freedom as Jody gave it a full send...



    Really just a little power steering fluid hitting the headers, but all the freedom winds put it out right away.

    Do it for Dale.

    P pumps don't like a ton of RPM and when that happens, a little runs out of the overflow tube on the reservoir. Landed on the header while it was pretty stupid hot.

    Had to be a great trip if “Do it for Dale “ was quoted. Hate I missed it but spent some needed time with the wife. Did get all the TJ parts ordered I need before the OBX trip.

    I would like to let @adamk explain when the “Do it for Dale” came out. My hat was backwards, and it was game on.

    Wow grapevine has changed all the rocks are at the entrance now! Is the right hardline doable now or only bouncer status making that? Badass run @Jody Treadway

    Right line is doable, but with work. I had a day and a half left in my trip and have no need to waggle my Bobo to earn cool points. If ya know what I mean

    Talton sent me this one earlier today. My jeep giving high fives on white tail crawl. According to the folks behind me, spare tire was all but on the ground.

    I think Jenny's comment as we passed it was Grape Vine had puked all out into the main connector trail.

    I had a great, great, great time!

    @Jody Treadway was an artist with the “it is not bad at all” because after we did it, we were all like “that was awesome!!”

    @Lankford may or may not have had a heart attack, and I may or may not have caught some air trying to keep up with him, and overall it was a blast.
