    Hey Will! Martha and I really enjoyed meeting you and your wife. Your rig is just insanely awesome- I want to do my rear just like yours- with the welded in hoops.

    You guys took some great photos. Props to your wife for thinking of getting a group photo at Fort Piute- It came out perfect. Can't wait to trail with you again. How'd the mud cleaning go?

    I went sliding into a berm doing about 55mph. That turn was harder than I remembered and my front tires are worn so me and my kids went sliding.

    I took out a few bushes. I'm very lucky the dirt was soft otherwise we would've caught some air. My front driver tire was squeaking so we had to remove the tire and reset it. I have bad LBJ's and tie rods to I think the wheel offset when I hit the berm. We cleaned everything up and hit the road again. Recklesstaco was right behind me and he came close to hitting me and RJ was behind him and he almost hit Reckless.

    Fort Piute Canyon. The Ford Ranger got went through a huge puddle of wet mud and took water in his engine. The engine shut off and wouldn't turn over. He remove the air filter and we let it sit for a few minutes. I seriously thought he was going to have to leave it there if it didn't start. Luckily it started but he had a loud engine knock all the way home.

    Gold mine. We were able to go about 75 yards into the mine until the water hole that was bubbling. I'm sure gas has built up into the mine.
