    Nice, I am suprised that there was still that much mud up there.. Now I wish I would have went whale watching a different day. If you have not done it yet I suggest you do get some killer pics, the ITT MWR office has some huge discounts for the family to. Sick pics though.. That crawl is gettimg more and more tempting might have to invest in another toy when I get back from deployment. How were the waves at North Shore? Heard it was supposed to be 25ft faces...

    We got to the north shore about 2 hours before high tide so the waves were dying down. At some spots it was still about 10 feet but earlier some guys were saying it was 12-15' at sunset beach. It was rough out there today.

    We went whale watching two years ago and we might go after I get back from California in March. We had a great time seeing some whale tail!

    Was inspecting the truck today and realized I ripped the electrical connector for my trailer hitch off somehow. What a shitty place they put that thing especially as it's all plastic. Looks like K Point is giving me a good excuse to upgrade to an All Pro bumper... I'll post pics soon!

    There are alot of lifted tacomas here with really wide wheels and wide tires. It's their money so I dont knock em for it. As far as trails on this island...wish there was more. I saw alot on Kauai when I was there.

    un hooking after only a few minutes of yanking on the truck
    [​IMG]
    the 35 in tires were buried and she was high centered flexed out
    [​IMG]
    every vehicle in the group was stuck which is why I got the call

    Alright so I got the call on Sunday night bout 1130 all 3 were stuck. They called the Taco that they always talk smack on to come get them out.. Oh what carma. Rack one up for the TACO's.. Really wanted to go out with the rest of you on Sunday but had other obligations. Ended up going anyway just alot later than I wanted. But hey any opportunity to pull out a Ford right??
    [​IMG]
    and of course have to show the pic of him un hooking from my taco after I pulled em out!

    where did you get the All Pro bumper from? If you ordered it from online how much for the bumper and shipping? I really want to get one. Did you get lights and the winch to?

    Yup to fast and going up a jeep eater trail, had the wrong angle on the hill. An expesive and very time consuming lesson learned. When are you going out to the point again? You know there is a nice mud field out by your base. Go out the back gate and head toward H-3 its on the left on the old dump road. accross from the high school. Drive that road and its right off the road cannot miss it. there is like 2 ways in that are not blocked off. Looks like fun

    That mud hole was nasty during the day. I couldnt even imagine going through it at night and then getting stuck. I know the word "faaack" was said more than a new times.

    Yup it was a mess... It took me a little while to figure out were I was gonna come it at to get a good line to pull him out. When I first showed up I didn't even see the jeeps stuck until I put my head lights toward the hole. It was nasty...
