Sounds like it is going to be a BIG group this time! Adam called me after meeting at Gas America and there were 9 or 10 Jeeps there. Brendan, Bob and Gar will meet up with them at Haspin I guess so it will be a crowd... Sounds like some fun!!

Oh Rebecca, it was "fun" all right"! It was a slimey sticky mess.


Let's see, one broken mirror, drowned out engine, one that caught fire. I came out ok though, MANY thanks to the guy with the red YJ, and his new winch! Sorry, I'm bad with names. He winched almost everyone out at one time or another.

It was good to get out again though.

Thanks again Derek, you were a godsend today. I'd STILL be stuck on that damn hill without your help. I guess I should say SEVERAL of us would still be stuck!

What caused the problem with the other YJ?

Total Damages.
1) sway bar disco bent up when i didnt secure very well
2) killed the engine in the mud pit andy and i tried - replaced air filter on the way home and just replaced the TPS, runs great again

3) caught a tree on the last run of the day, caught it on adams cb antenna mount, popped a hole in my trunk, broke my tailight.

I had to spend $14 worth of quarters just to get the body, wheels and tires cleaned off.  The underside is still caked.

All in all it was nice to see everyone, and had a great time.  Where we going next?biggrin

The worst I came away with is a few Kentucky pinstripes.  Rubbing compound should take care of them.

If you have a Mike's Car wash in your area, I was told that the ones in Ft. Wayne do a $5 as much as you want High Pressure Sprayer.

Yeah there are Mikes Car Wash's here in Indy. That's good to know. I never used their "self serve" wash before. I'll go there to clean the bottom off.

The guys Rubicon slid down into a rut and was sitting with the front end much lower than the rear.  They were winching him out, and he was gunning it pretty good to try to get it out.  Apparently it puked some tranny fluid out the dipstick and it dripped onto the exhaust manifold and caught fire.  It was put out quickly and there was no damage.

I was up the hill talking to Adam and saw some smoke but I thought it was just from the tires until I saw the fire underneith the Jeep.  I got a picture of it but the camera didn't catch the flames in time.  Like I said, it was put out pretty fast, thank God.
