You may want to enjoy the joys of being young
And let below dam rocks enable some very quick fun
Than using a high dollar hot tub only to relax a bit
After two days on those rocks made us oldies too sore and stiff

The way your back tire was wedged, as soon as you let the clutch out you were done. That particular hole has been responsible for as many rolls and breakage as any other spot in Disney.

I forgot to add to the carnage that KanZuk broke his upper front link on the yellow stretch Sammi at Little Blue, LiftDr bent his front bumper some more, and I had a rear tire go flat on the waterfall.

As a matter of fact, I think the only one to emerge without some sorta damage/problem was Skyhiranger (Kevin) in his little camo Sammi.

And the GPS Tracks of our route Saturday and Sunday.
We clocked about 13 miles each day, but the LJ's all peeled off about 1pm, so they didn't get that much in.

Wish I'd known that you guys were going to go play on some harder obstacles Sunday afternoon. We would have followed you over to watch the carnage!

Thank you for letting us follow along with your group. Even though your Samurai's were obviously capable of much more, I appreciate that your group censored your trail choices to what the stock LJs could reasonably be expected to do.

We enjoyed having you. All the ZofKC guys commented on how much they liked having the LJ's and people with us. They all said that you're welcome anytime. :D

Smuz & the gang K C I very much appreciate the comrodery last weekend at disney. Enjoyed wheeling with the samys and seeing there abbilaties. Removed the tank on " Cheyenne" Monday evening found about 1" of rust and slime on bottom of tank, dont know how it maniged to run at all. Have a tank renew kit on the way, should have it back on the road soon. In 38 years a lot of crud can build up.probibilly should look at the other LJ tanks

If you want any of those I posted in high resolution let me know what ones. In the meantime will try to send 1 in high resolution. The last time I tried could not send even 1 at a time using lj10.com due to low allowable file size.
