I’ve seen him on it and he will do just fine.
Ages ago! I think it was Nathaniel's 60 that broke a rear driveshaft. then on the snowy past-midnight way home we fixed @nuclearlemon 's TRE with a Pringles can.

Cmon, spray some touch up paint on your sliders and load up!
Oh, man, lots to do. The 4runner is 95% done, at least for a shakedown run, but I can't get my tow rig ready by Saturday, and I think the rabbits spent the winter feeding on my trailer wiring.

Now, where's that spray can...

How long is the trail? Does anybody have a rough estimate?

Close. Nathaniel was a left rear axle shaft. That was a long day. I think a couple of us managed to get a bit of sleep in uncle Ben's 80 as he bombarded down to get parts. I believe sheps revenge is gone now

Yea I remember all that. Good times. Sheps is still there and will need to be driven or winched. I hear it gives people the most trouble still. I'm not going to be too aggressively and wont be afraid to pull cable on that one.

I figure we will be off the trail mid to late afternoon since it's kind of a late start (10am). Depends how cleanly we make through of course. We usually have lunch at the double slab as people play on it.

Ohh yeah, I do not like that spot, candy cane ds in that area before the cable came out last time.

My ds are redone I might have to nose in a pull cable, I’m not proud.

Were FJ Cruiser Trails Teams before or after 2010?

Will anyone be coming from the Colorado Springs area that wants to convoy up?

I'll be there! Hopefully, the new build will take all the road miles OK.
