    Once again thanks to the Kentucky Mountain Crawlers for putting on another great event weekend. Our crew from NC went up and had a great time. Here are some shots from our group as well as some others who we occasionally run with. Broke a lot of stuff and pulled a lot of winch cable. Typical weekend in Harlan.

    Blew a trailer tire on the 32ft gooseneck as we pulled into camp...we think...no clue how long it was blown. The tow rig sounds like a road tractor.

    Our buddy Austin's bad luck continues...

    Broken Heim on the traction bar...

    Then broke the front output off the Transfer Case while driving around in front wheel drive...

    Sam took out a front Chevy Dana 60 ring gear...

    Then after 2 hours of people breaking and winching he got bored and we decided to try a new line back into Lions Den...

    well see...we had already been UP the ledge 3 times...and down it twice

    it ended up that not wearing the harnesses was the best idea justin had...as it allowed him to duck into the cab and avoid the torso sized rock that came in thru his door when we hit...

    i on the other hand...probably shouldve had them on



    Stretch...you remember when i asked if i should look into finding a helmet...now i think we know that i should have :D

    seriously though...thats a perfect example of how quickly trails can change...and how easily we can feel comfortable with something...

    it was probably less than an hour between our 2nd and 3rd trips down that ledge
