All of us are off the 'Con, except Robbie who left after we did. A good time was had by all! :clap: Big Orange suffered major carnage. Broke all the knuckle studs on both sides. Driver's side Friday in camp and passenger's side today on Cadillac Hill coming out. Tied up exiting traffic for over an hour. Luckily Mudrak was on the spot. More and pictures to follow. :D

60WAG will be your best bet for pictures first. He flew home this afternoon. The rest of us won't be home till Monday night.

Wish I could have made it this year. It looks like from what I've seen on Pirate and Ih8mud that there was more damage this year than year's past. The whole idea that Cadillac Hill is the easy way out is a false premise.

Did you ever recheck the torque on them? Once they loosen up they shear.

Nice pics Bruce :cheers:

I'll do more latter, but here is a group shot

It was an amazing trail, but not as amazing as the people I ran the trail with:beer:

That is so cool that you were able to get such a big group together to go. I remember last year I ran into Dave Brown at the Rubithon and he said that he hoped to have a big group come up next year. I'm going to try to make it next year, either that or Cruise Moab. I was hoping for SnT this fall but I figured it out and it would be like $650 per day to go. I can only go for a couple of days and the travel time and fuel just don't make it cost effective. I flew down for the TTR event in TX in January and that is most likely the only TLCA event I'll make it to this year. But I'm happy dad again. He's 5 weeks already. By next year at CM he'll be ready to hit the trails down there.
