Well folks we were up to seven rigs today .We met in Sydney River
Jan was right , lots of alders
found some places to play
trail was fun in places
dam plastic bumpers
then the big rubi lost a belt
no spare but turns out a belt from a 4L with ac will fit a 3.6 in a new JK. Well Adam had a spare for non ac and Steve had an ac eng with the ac not working.so off came his belt ,on went the new . Then his belt went on the rubi . thats the short version. only the guys on the run know the real story .
the new belt went south ,rubi had to be towed ,missed the road because to more alders
and then this
road washed out and no way around
almost out , our day at this point is almost at the 8hr mark and we are only 1/2 a k from the road with no way there .trees, gullies ,blackflies and the babysitter gettin cranky . time to get thinkin. Adam had a pick ,matt had a shovel , guys found some pallets ,we build up the lower side of the washout.
Adam was first in sense he is the biggest .we needed an anchor point and a winch on the upper end
my cable to a tree and back to each jeep so no flops
the big rubi
i went last .got to the road ,aired everyone up ,call a recker for the rubi and by the time i got back to the Mira it was after 10pm.What a great day.
