    Wish I saw this earlier, would've went back out. Had a good tine out there yesterday. My friend found out how bad he needs sliders and skids on his Xterra, and to keep off the go pedal so much as he almost rolled it. I need to ditch the front receiver tube and back bumper because they got in the way, and I smashed the tailpipe coming off a ledge, also scratched the hell out of my paint.

    We went pretty mellow, as we had a new driver in a 2wd, and a fairly new 4Runner that we didn't want to bang up.

    I plan to drag Alan out there soon, so he can watch my back as I do some stupid stuff I saw while we were out there.
