I know that was great last year! Sorry, I'll be there next year. I'm sure between Brenda, Paul, and Jamil you'll end up with some good stuff

Jimmy, we'll probably see you on the road. We are leaving the NH liquor store on 495 at 9:30 with a group of 4 trucks. KB, Court and a jeep.

Likely we'll be on channel 10.

Dave, We are leaving Scott's place at 9, takes about an hour to get to Portsmouth NH, so might just see you.

Pictures Brenda took at the 09 Winter Romp.
Had a great weekend. Got to go back next weekend to drag my truck back. Throw out bearing is not throwing out.

Great pics. I think Bruce has a few trucks sitting in his yard right now that need to get recovered. Anybody get thru the water hole without winching? I sat that one out.

Jimmy - great pics - I need to look into a hosting site like that...

Here's a link to my pics. http://s120.photobucket.com/albums/o...20Romp%202009/

We ran in a small group (3) Friday night and Saturday morning - then meet up w/ the NJ/NY guys on Saturday afternoon/night.

We broke a lot of trail on Friday night and Saturday morning - including the water hole Friday night.
Saturday night was a winch fest at the swamp.

Not much carnage - Ron tore a brake line and had a flat on the way home - he can explain.
Weather was great.

Paul, Ron wanted me to call when we got to the trails on Saturday but i wasn't getting service on my phone all day. We must have been crossing paths all day, glad you had a great time.
Sunday my throw out bearing got stuck in and the clutch was slipping bad. Took it back to Bruces and took the slave cylinder out and couldn't move the arm. Was hoping to release it and just drive home grating the gears, it is solid. Going back Saturday to trailer it home. What a dickhead i trailered it last year and had nothing wrong.

What a good time. We had a good time with Ron and Paul in the swamp. Took us about 4 hours to go half a mile.

Eric was leading us through the swamp when his winch line broke (not good for the leader). We tried to get him out with the hi-lift, shovels, logs, pushing, but nothing worked. So we tied the winch line in a knot through the fairlead and wound it up on itself. that worked and we got another 10 feet. it was like this the whole way up the swamp.

The next morning the water, mud and everything else froze my rear wheels to the axle. I was driving around the parking lot with my rear wheels locked up! it looked so bizarre.

Will post photos and video soon.

Here's two pictures of Eric's winch line - first one is showing the knot and the second showing it breaking the second time.

what kind of knot is that you guys tried?? It doesn't look like the double figure 8 I assume you should have used... I'm guessing it put a stress point on the line resulting in the second break. Did you end up blocking it to cut the stress down?

Sounds like you guys had a fun time anyway ;-)

can't remember the first couple of knots. but then we did a double 8 inside the fairlead to the winch and wraped the line over the 8 once or twice. held it down nice and worked the rest of the 10 or so winch times after that.

I think he is a member here, he lives in NH about an hour from me.
goes under the name mudbug on SNHLR forum. His brother also has a 90 who is a member here but can't think what name he goes under, he lives in NY city.

You need to blame that on the Bob Inn and Chez Paris....



It was great to meet you and Gavin.
