    I'm too tired to write a full story but here's a summary.

    Blacktacodoc was having minor electrical issues in Barstow but he assumed it was nothing major. We hit the dirt and 20 miles in we check his battery, 7 volts. 5 miles later his truck dies. We jumped his battery about 12 times till we reached Baker. He stayed in Baker and got repaired as we moved forward. we got to camp at 12:30am.

    As David reported, he had A/C line break and blew the shit out of a tire. He left after state line Saturday night.

    This morning at camp Jim noticed his bed a little loose. After about 15 miles his bed was really loose and the frame was cracked where the bump stop notches were cut out of the frame. Jim takes the highway home.

    Saturday night we got puller over by a ranger that was chasing Matt. He thought we may have been racing cause Raptors have been racing a lot out there but he let us off with a warning cause we were over 7 trucks.

    As well as I know that area, running out there at night is completely different and we were off route a few times.

    Jim cracked his frame?! Shiiiiiit!. This is proof that when you beef up your truck that energy from a hit goes somewhere else.

    I think this was going to happen wether I caged or not. This was wear and tear because I added two tires past the bed cage with no additional support. Then beat the hell out of it.
