Thanks for the great pix and leading the charge for a nice run to the peak Brent. Bbq up top was killer too.

Has anyone ever told you that you look more like a Brett than a Brent?

Well, it turns out the Great Pumpkin couldn't make it up a hill, and that's when Ramsey took a look at the front end and determined one of the hubs wasn't engaging. So, with some basic tools, (and the group waiting) he disassembled the automatic hub, only to discover it was useless. The thing hadn't been exercised properly and was now only adding more weight to SM. I continued on the trail in 2.25 wheel drive. Someone has video of the Power Wagon pulling it up a nasty hill.

THEN, after the ride and we were air-ing up, someone noticed my sway bar had relocated itself into my spring! Ramsey was there again to assist in getting it unjammed / removed. (Cool! more weight gone!)

Gonna go with Warn Premier manual hubs next.

We saw a few people because we only came up for the day. Worked both days before and after.
Great to meet a few new people and say hi to others.

Unfortunately we drove the 1998 Landcruiser and not the van...

You can read my writeup with TONS of pics at the link above. Had a great time and loved the huge van turnout. Was soooooo missing my van at this event!!! Best part is always catching up with and meeting such great people that share common passions. Hopefully see many of you on the road again soon! Missed you Gooseberry.
