    Yeah that bridge needs only minor work. Had to leave a bit early, but scouted another section of trail and helped some list ENH'ers find their way.

    Great run! Bummed I didn't get to hit tumbledown with you guys but she had been complaining to me for at least an hour that she wanted to go so I finally had to ditch. The trail with the bridge is not too far from me so as long as I'm at my place in wolfeboro I would be available to help as part of a wheeling/cleanup/rebuild day. Thanks to Jeff for leading the run I can imagine it was pretty tough but you did a great job even though we got off to a shaky start. Overall I had a nice day, don't know if I can say the same for Jacqui.. But at least she tried it

    Turns out the clunk was my rr axle shaft, one spare left so I'm good! As for the front end, the rf hub was not locked... DOH

    ^ Fixed it for you ;)
    Traction, articulation, and gearing make a good off-road rig. Just a big lift, wide mud tires, and a winch simply do not ;)

Furthermore I'm sitting I'm Barnstead right now with a bent rear axle housing . When I say to spot me and watch my rear axle because it's aluminum then hit iton 6 rocks... get half way home and hear nasty grinding noises.... I'm just not happy at all right now. Not to mention I'm still up off that 2 hours of sleep last night and have to swap a new axle into the jeep before 3pm tomorrow so I can get to work
    Sorry you broke on the way home. Spotting is tough and the reason I try not to spot, but no matter what I take responsibility for my rig.

    Some things from today need to be reviewed for sure. I think a mandatory 101 is in order or something.

    Jeff thanks for putting this together. The first part was rough but after that it smoothed out and turned out to be a great day. Thank you. Great to see everybody as always and I'm looking forward to the next run.

    I was thinking a mandatory 101 too as well as FORCING everyone to read the rules at sign up or next login. Liability waivers / rules that all participants must sign at every run? Paul I saw you drive by. I was at Blueberry Station in Barnstead. Wouldve called but I don't have your number in my new phone. I'm on my way home now . Good thing dad has a car trailer ...

    Mr.bigshot,
    What specific occurrances are you speaking of where rules were broken?
    Everyone seemed pretty tame to me.

    Today was an experience that's for sure... Started off with me going the wrong way and having to turn around 15 vehicles, bypassing the 1st road, and then the BRIDGE. Glad that it was decided that everyone not attempt crossing it and glad those who turned around did. I was uneasy about the thought of everyone crossing it.
    Sorry we lost a few people after that, I dont blame you for bailing at that point it was a rocky start.

    As the trail leader I take responsibilty and apologize for the few vehicles that used the bypass around the bridge that was not part of the trail.
    Ive learned some valuable lessons since being a part of this group, and more were learned today. Unfortunately I cant change the way the day played out but I can be sure some things dont happen again.

    I agree everyone needs to know and understand the rules in order to participate in the runs.

    As far as liabilty waivers that's probably going a little far IMO. After all out on the trails in the woods or even driving in general you yourself are ultimately liable for your own person and vehicle.

    Mr. Bigshot (Matt) I'm sorry you got some damage and I apologize if the spotting wasnt perfect but we all do the best we can and cant always see everything at once. You do have to give credit to all the guys taking the time to stack heavy rocks under the tires of lower vehicles to make the approach angles and clearences better. At the end of the day its still offroading and **** happens. Take it from someone who knows all about breaking stuff.

    All in all the day didnt turn out to bad and we got some good wheeling in. I still cant get over what a great group of people are part of this group and really enjoy meeting you all.

    Paul as always it was a pleasure and your a huge help and a great guy. You definitely make the runs enjoyable and are funny as hell.

    hrslogff thanks for the help in the beginning and in helping me get my bearing it was a huge help and I'm glad you were familiar with that road. It was good to meet you and the fam.

    Darkside1k (brad) thanks for helping with the navigation when mine was acting up lol

    Ill be sticking to my smaller runs for a while 15 rigs was a little to ambitious Ill leave that to the pros (Rubicon-Shawn) lol
    Oh and Shawn maybe you should lead a spotting 101 class because I think some of us could benefit me included.

    Oh yeah I know all about breaking stuff. Just wouldn't think my first run out in my new jeep that I'm trying to not end up like my last one, I'd do this much damage. I'm not 100% sure the axle is bent but that's what it's looking like. It drags tires when I turn and I measured the distance between the outer tread lugs at the front and back of the rear tires, and it seems like the front of the driver's side rear tire is toed about 2" out. I'll make a better diagnosis in the daylight tomorrow but I'm guessing the axle bent putting extra pressure on the shafts & gears and caused damage to the gears. Sorry about coming off kind of harsh about the spotting. Thanks for the help with rocks, etc. Because otherwise a lot more damage would've happened or would've happened sooner. It's my fault too for being so exhausted and getting frustrated and just wanting to get out of there.
