    I'm posting this to reserve a spot for the pictures and videos that will follow. But I had to get this embarrassing video of Chris out there for the world to see. :lol:

    Kidding aside, I really have to brag on Chris for a minute. We had two different people at the store ask us to tag along. A family in a lock XJ on 35s, and a young college guy in a 4-door JK on 37's with a Dana 30 and open on both ends. We told the young guy follow at your own risk but you're more than welcome, and Chris told the family Bring It On. Shortly at the trail we had a stack of rocks and the XJ snapped the driver side U-joint on the short shaft. Chris went and got his personal spare and replaced it and made the repair on the spot.

    A short while later we were in a rutted-out muddy Hill Climb and the XJ snapped the passenger side U-joint. Several other members help them change that one.

    I was very proud of Chris for stepping up and jumping right in there. I was also very proud of the club and for what it stands for and for being protective of everyone, even non-members that we meet in a parking lot.

    Awesome trip, awesome people, awesome club

    A very special thank you to Shane and Corey for guidance and knowledge of the trail systems and for all the spotting and help

    Day one was started in the rain with 2 rigs (Me and Josh, with Jason co-pilot in Josh's rig)

    Things didn't go so well on Trail 15





    We didn't feel like a Winch-Fest first thing, so we headed up top to do some loop trails

    Everything was soaked. So we decided to go DOWN 22


    20190207_131533.jpg

    It was here that a GUEST would break a short shaft U-Joint 2 days later going back UP

    Did a little POSING

    22 was under water for quite some time

    But overall the water was beautiful

    But all that beauty had a price!!!!!


    EWWWWW

    The morning of Day 2:


    MAN I love this campground! And the toilet/shower facility is just the bomb-diggity.


    20190208_083105.jpg 20190208_083106.jpg 20190208_083108.jpg



    Day 2 ended up with 2 groups of folks.

    Keziah and Klan headed over to Waldon's Ridge while Me, Josh/Jason, Casey and Juarez scouted out the potential ride for Saturdays club ride.


    20190208_083110.jpg



    We were to hit the American knob loop, then run down 26 to 27 and then up 35.

    First up was the long ride up P1 then over the G's to 83 and the 'Murican Knob loop

    Then on down to My PERSONAL favorite: 26

    I showed the wife that video last night and watched it about 15 more time. She said how many times are you going to watch that. I said that shit is funnier watching the video than it was to see in person.

This dude had this Rzr stuck there well over 24 hours including during a crazy storm! We cut our ride short to do the right thing and help him. It was an interesting recovery that took over an hour. The guy had went and bought a battery and a portable winch and hi lift trying to get it out by himself!
    It prevented our evening wheeling, but we could not leave the guy there.

    I didn’t take but a couple pictures all weekend and they are nothing worth posting. The group I rolled with Friday did Walden’s Ridge and a very small part of trail 15 before the recovery exercise began on the stranded RZR which ended our ride for the day. Saturday we ran 22,26,35,36,41,45.

    I've got the massive scars on my lower passenger rear link and @77GreenMachine as a witness.

    On a side not I know someone got video, who though I have no clue.

    That RZR looked totaled! Hope everyone got out of the Mountains before the Rain/Sleet/Snow, set in!

    It was actually fine, once we got most the way back over Phillip fired it up and drove it.

    This one deserves it's own video (with a little more content at the end than the instagram one)

    I love @Chris_Keziah more every day :lol::huggy:



    @ncsutj here's another one (with added footage at the end) that you can sit and giggle at while your wife looks on in a full state of confusion/aggravation) :D

    I had a great time wheeling with you guys. Met some new friends, and got to see some old friends from my days in the CTB. Certainly a great group to wheel with.
