I had a really great time and enjoyed the wheeling and friends.

My passenger took a lot of photos, so here they are..

Awesome Pics! Did anyone make the third waterfall on Dirty without winching? We had an awesome time. Thanks again to everyone who helped in my attempt to get back on the trail. Rusty's is sending me another 22mm trac bar end. That will get me back on the trail until it's time for an upgrade.

I think we just had to winch the first fall...everything else we drove no problems. Or are you talking about CD? I drove all of CD with no problems...Twice! :rof:

Again, I feel bad about the damage........ enough said. I suppose that any day with the family in beautiful weather is better than a day at work. We will wheel again.

No one drove that fall, all winched it. Several gave it a heck of a try, but there just wasn't any traction.

James, he's talking about the fall where we had to daisy chain the winch and tow strap to get everyone up on DS.

After taking my Jeep for a swim, we UHAULED it home and replaced distributor cap/rotor, one O2 sensor, spark plugs, engine oil, diff fluids, and did one drain and refill on the tranny. I'm gonna do it everyday after work for the rest of the week. That should get most of the water out. Other than that, no carnage here... Jeep is running much better now. Thanks to everyone who helped out. I really appreciate it, you guys are awesome! I still had a good time as usual.

Ya. We had an awesome time. That makes me feel a bit better that nobody drove it. We've got to pass on the princess stickers. We'll definitely be back. LOL

John Porvaznik worked with the local land owners, prior to the event and even sat down at camp and had a few beers with him to allow us access. Yes, the access is on private property, and yes it's gated. John was given access for the Naxja group.

Getting the crappers back was a pain. The tp started to unroll and would push it out the door. I needed a large beer when I got home!

And hey Brian, Daniel met my wife when we booked back to my place to repair his brake line so he can confirm that she's not a fabrication of my imagination. And not of the blow up variety either!

Had a blast cant wait to go out with you guys again! Thanks to Crash for spotting this noob on his first time out on LT. Experienced a few axle breaks and a 6 hour LT run didnt get back to camp until about 11. Awesome night wheeling. Only carnage i had was a blow out on the way up! Fun times!

Heres the only pic I took. Of Thom's Beautiful Xj right before he had some problems. Picture Perfect.

I had a great time and it was good to see some familiar faces and to meet some new ones. The event was great like always and props to John for working with the land owners to get us access to some killer trails, like the trail that broke my junk. I can kinda say I have some body damage but it is so small it may not count to most of you guys. Thanks to all the trail leaders and all the hard work that went into making this event happen.:)

Wow, I'm finally home in BC. Big snow storm N. Mt, wacked a deer but the Duramax w/ winch & mount unscrached. Road rock made me swap a flatbed bent rim was all. Thanks to all you guys for putting on another fantastic fun event. Special thanks to all who helped me so much. James for the axle build & for driving out there in the dark, stewie for removing his caliper bolts & loaning me, John for the long term loan, till next Rockfest, of the unit bearing, new guy Dennis for driving us & parts back out in the dark, those 2 young new guys that did most of the work reinstalling my axle, John again for taking off his axle nut & loaning it, and thanks to Matt for bringing me John's nuts late in the night. Sorry to those that helped & I forgot your names. This should be seen by all who wheel so they know how great & safe it is to wheel with the Arizona NAXJA team! You guys set a super example.

You will see us. I know you guys will plan best you can but just my input, would be nice to have it after the Havasu Sidewinders event & just before EJS in Moab, if it works well.

Yep, apparentley breaking is part of the fun. I wonder why it took 3 events before I found out. Thanks agian to all that made this event happen and especially those that helped me get my jeep bandaged up so I could drive back to camp. Thanks James, charlie, and John. You guys were great to wheel with and I hope to get another chance in the near future. I should be getting it fixed this Friday.
