YOU ROCK! That is the picture I wanted to see. I won't have any trouble at all, judging by that.

Leaving in 30 minutes...wish me luck.

Re: Moab...Elephant hill...been there?

Now my question about the tocoma...

How come those two guys standing around (probably snickering) didn't just lift the end of the trailer and pull it over about 3'?

Photobucket now has video too. I don't know the first thing about it, but that's what is says when I log in now.


Did you make Amy hike off to get that shot on the bridge?

Yeah, sort of. We all walked down about a quarter mile to the bridge to take pictures, then realized that we could drive down(very fun) so I had to go back and get the Jeep.

Trip was awesome, the only breakage was on the freeway...only 2 miles from home. A very stupid lady pulled from the emergency lane into the slow lane, where I was doing 60 mph with the trailer, right in front of me doing about 10 mph. I locked it up pretty hard, jack knifed the trailer, broke both shocks on the trailer and a swaybar mount on the front axle...I was just amazed I missed her and didn't roll it. She then proceeded to cross lanes of traffic at 20-30 mph. I caught up to her and left a good dent in her minivan because I was so pissed.

The trailer made the rest of the journey their and back with out the air shocks (riding bottomed out). The Sway bar link went unnoticed until I went to unhook in Moab. I fixed it before the drive home.

All in all a good trip.

Still working on trying to convert the video to a format I can use on the computer.
