Those are some priceless pics of your wife! If I asked my wife to slog through the mud to connect a cable she'd tell me to piss off! It was nice to see proof of Gustavo wheeling his truck too.

Love Gustavo's "Tread Lightly" ethic. Why is it that people park their rigs in the middle of the trail after crossing an obstacle. Then they get out to watch the next guy. Eventually the traffic backs up so that no one can get thru. Finally it occurs to Ding-a-Ling to move his truck....after fifteen minutes of standing around. You get caught up in the moment and forget about what's going on. If you have a Trail Boss along he gets labeled as an a-hole for pointing this stuff out.

Bill, as close as I am to perfection, I make many mistakes.... sorry if you think I am an a-hole that doesn't care, I do, but sometimes I make mistakes.

Awesome videos. To quote Gustavo - "Fantastic"

Had forgotten Jill was the one wading into the mud at Rao's Crossing. Thanks Jill!

Oh, and I love the way Gustavo responds when Dana says "Ready GIRLS". LOL

Bill when are you gonna come to an event and go wheeling with us? You are just jealous because the last time you went out was with your 2.25 diesel.

To be fair there is some logic to not driving too far off after clearing a particular spot. You want to stick around in case the next guy needs help. You get a back up then everyone moves up a few truck lengths. Its not like were getting anywhere in a hurry.

Sometimes there is no way other than to tread deeply. Mind you this was on an industrial grain farm I don't think there was much in the way of ecosystem getting destroyed by our little tires.

If you're referring to the section I am thinking then it was maybe 5 trucks (myself, tony, gustavo, ray, and dana) out on an impromptu ride. There was no organized leader to the ride. In cases where there is, it isn't really that formal. Though I have heard criticism of rides where the leader can't find the trail. Though I suppose it's excusable when all the landmarks are covered in 5 feet of snow drift...

I like the one of my truck. (of course) You can hear Tony say "child's play for Bobeck" and then i get stuck. Though I did drive out after attempt # 2 1/2.

And I love the running commentary Gustavo. You have to come to happy hour. Show off that new ride big man. I don't think Bill meant you were an a-hole. I think you were Ding-a-ling. Or was that me. I can't keep track

oh...Dana...great job. Though you should have taken more of my truck. Oh well, I'm sure you will do better next time.

Gustavo, if anyone in this group is going to unleash a mafia I think it would be someone whose name ends with "i".

Just sayin...trail "Boss"...
