This was the only mud hole, but those with the snorkels and the guts gave it a go.

By the way, we hit some hard spots today. A few nice kisses on trees with Petes Rangie and Tyler with the stock blue d-90. Also, Trevors disco made it to about a 40 deg side angle on one trail .. With a few bodys hanging on the slider, we made it though.

By the way, It is suprizing what even a stock d-90 will do. Rock/ Winch Hill Trail was no prob. Just gun it even w/ 3 wheels on the ground.

Gee thanks. Just forget about me Hopefully Mike will make it home in one piece. It was great meeting everyone. Fun trip with just a little carnage. When's the next trip?

No worries. There were a lot of new faces. I forgot some peoples names too. Did Mike stop in NJ or did he decide to make a push for home?

They were about 5 miles infront of us the entire way home and we could not catch them. Spoke to Pete after they went through the water gap on the phone and they said they were making good time on Rt 80 and if they had any problems to just call. They never did.

Hope everyone made it home safely. It was awsome wheeling with everyone and of course meeting new faces, we definatly have to do this again...Soon! I want to say thanks to everyone for helping out on the trail. Whether spotting, wrenching, or just providing the laughs. You guys make wheeling enjoyable. But most of all thanks to Ken for really getting this trip put together.

Now as for Mike, the teflon lined/JB welded bolt plugged up the hole great. He only lost 1/2 a resevoir of fluid on the almost 200 mile trip home, so I'm sure if Mike could get ahold of a computer he would like to thank Trevor, Steve and everyone else who helped get him back on the road. He decided to not chance going all the way home, so he should be settling in at the Ho Jo (Howard Johnson) right now which is right next door to a Hooters So don't feel to bad for him. We will have a water pump for him in the morning and either he or I will get it installed and have him back on the road before noon tomorrow.

I also setup a gallery of pictures that Diana took over Sat. and Sun(Its uploading right now). I didn't edit out any pictures so there are some blurry/random pictures floating around. If anyone else has pics that they want posted up email them to me at pm55@njit.edu and I will post them up.

http://web.njit.edu/~pm55/RauschCreek/

Oh and Jorge if possible relay to Fernando that if he can just get me an unedited copy of his footage either on VHS or DVD I would love to see it. I will pay him for the material/time to make the copy.

We didn't run Rock Creek, we ran trail 13 which parallels it. Though I did go take a look at it and it would be crazy to run with 3 or 4 trucks and alot of spotting. Of course I think I'm gonna need atleast 33s and some HD CVs before attempting that madness. It would be cool to see Trevor or Jorge take a shot at it.

I was just over sitting with Mike at The Import Specialist. Vinny is doing his truck as we speak and he should be on his way home soon.

Great pics. Sorry I missed this one. Although it's so nice to see a solid contingent of Arles D-90's

Pete, no mud in the sunroof this time?
