Nope, wasn't the windshield, but it was something rather humerous.

Hope everybody had a better luck on the trail than I did Friday. I'll be ready for the next one. It was nice wheeling and meeting everyone again. Hope everyone gets back safe and sound.

Pete.. you make it home without any other issues? Again, I'm sorry about not watching the rear as much as we should have coming off that last rock. I feel bad that the lapse of attention caused so much trouble.

Yeah, I made it home without any trouble and don't worry about it, it definatly wasn't your fault. It was the fault of the small 32s . How did Saturday and Sunday go?

Sat was really great time. Got to Rausch @ 9am and meet the rest of the crew. Got on the trails and I think everyone had a good time. Found a really good mud trail just above the rock creek. Ken got some great pictures of us getting through that. Trevor took half the group up another trail. I have not heard how sunday went.

He dropped off a large rock and hit a sweet spot on the tank guard which put a hairline crack in the fuel tank. Eventually he was able to get it sealed with some mystery goo that out of blind luck, I found in my tool box that said would seal in gasoline and oil. Swathed a self tapping screw and washer in it, Pete screwed it in and after 5 minutes the stuff set and was hard, ready to go in 20 minutes. Another stroke of luck was Jimmy having a extra 22 gallon rubbermaid container in his truck for when we drained the tank into it and then later, filled Pete back up.

Today went well except that Mike broke his rear diff on the drive to Rausch this morning. We ran a part of 18 that connected to the really muddy part of 10. That was fun riding in Trevor's disco as we did the trail the wrong way. That little 3rd low up hill is a fun down hill too. Steve spent a lot of time in the air. Wish we'd gotten pictures.

lol... I spent $35 in quarters at the self wash today preasure washing the D90. Left a nice new 2" new layer of mud flooring in the bay. Then I spent the rest of the afternoon washing and cleaning it in the driveway and still have a nice pile of mud at the bottom of the drive.

Did you guys try going back up again with the Discos?

Follow-up Post:

I am glad I got paranoid about the sound from my stone shield and came back down the hill. That was a fun trail.

We just went down it. I don't think Trevor really wanted to have to winch up in again. Also the blazer that was with the Libberties rolled his truck playing on the tailings down the pole line from the office. He totaled the truck. The Libberty owners told Lyn that they were really greatfull for the spotting we did. They were worried we'd be snotty towards them. We need to get those pics of Mike sitting in the mud hole with 2 feet of water in the truck.

HOME!!!!! After a short drive filled with; Bad smells (smells like rubber melting), Bad sounds (maybe a U-joint or CV up front), lack of driveline (sucks only having one working Diff), TONS of thumbs ups and Smiles from other cars driving by, and some good luck!

Anyway it was a BLAST! Chatching some air going into the mud. I now know what it is like to have your feet under water while atempting to drive. And this is the first time I have had mud go up my shorts, allthough some will argue otherwise. OH and thanks goes out to Ken, Jimmy, Tyler, and Brenda for helping with my slight rear end problem!

Yousef, like Chris said I cracked the tank and later in the day I stripped the front 4.10 R & P, which ended the trip for me.

Mike do you need a rear diff? I might have a stock diff assembly floating around, do you need a 24 or 10 spline? PM me.

Well I only have a couple of pics from Friday on Chicken Run. Go to: http://web.njit.edu/~pm55/RC1/

Oh yeah the top secret stuff, well it's kinda 2 things, one I got my AC compressor running as an air compressor, I hooked it to a small 5 gallon tank and now I can fill my tires. Now for most people this would be enough, well I found this old train steam wistle from 1918 or something in my parents house while I was helping my dad work on his furnace. So NO BRAINER! right! I mounted it to the cage ran a line to the tank and TOOOOO TOOOOO all the neighbors are awake and it's time to get packed to leave for PA. So all weekend I have been blowing my wistle, I need to get a pic with my digi cam, it has a sound option.

Mike, Glad that you guys made it home ok. I hope the troubles with your truck aren't any worse than you thought while in PA. Thanks again to you and Jimmy for the help with my truck.

Haven't spent the $$ on the power was yet. Did the garden hose and got most of it off. Hoping that PA mud helps VA grass grow.

Tyler, thanks again for getting this trip started. Another EXCELLENT adventure.

Pete, you all fixed?

No, I got home and parked the truck. I'm gonna rip the diff out tomorrow morning just to confirm everything. I can turn the pinion 3/4 turns till it catches the ring gear for a turn or two then lets go again. That and after running a magnet in the diff I pulled out a bunch of metal chunks, so I'm 99.99% sure it's toast. Plans as of now are to stay 2wd till I can swap in a Toyota 3rd, shafts, and Longfields.

Oh, I forgot to thank everyone for their help on the trail: wrenching, lending tools, and just getting this event setup.

Ken, time for beefier steering rods?
