Title: F Troop
Post by: Steve Leslie on April 15, 2008, 07:41:56 am
On behalf of all the Guides for Trail F, we hope that everyone had a great time and look forward to wheeling with you all again.  A few pics from our group:

These don't do it justice, but this was the main carnage we had (my wifes Jeep).  You can see the rear spring missing in the second pic, but you can't see the torn out shock, the broken rear sway bar, the busted ujoint or the rear diff yoke cracked.  I should point out that we did limp it the 100+ miles home under it's own power.  ;D

Great pics Steve!  Jen, I'm sorry about your Jeep.  I enjoyed the ride though.

Thanks to Bob, Steve, Mark and David for being such great guides.  We were proud to be part of F Troop!  We had a really good group to wheel with!  Congratulations to Bob for getting the best guide award.  Not every trail guide is willing to throw his body in between the Jeep and the tree to save a classic like the Bronze Pig!  (Galen, I know you've done it for us before too!)

Looking forward to the next time!

 :) We did have a heck of a good group! :)

All the trail guides did a grand job of working together in F-Troop and it made me look good so, THANKS GUYS!!!

We keep our heads above water, didn't break too much stuff.  Seemed to be the weekend for rear yoke troubles though.

Jim sent an email saying that he might have cracked a rib in the slippery mud but no word on the camera repairs yet.

I certainly learned a lot for you folks this past weekend.  It was my pleasure to serve as your guide through the 9 trails we completed.  Hopefully, we'll all get another shot at them in the near future.

I'll wheel with any of ya if I see ya on the trails again!

Bob

I also wanted to thank the trail guides for getting us through the trails!  The group of folks in F Troop were great and it was a pleasure to wheel with them all.  I appreciate the votes for the Best Warn Winch award...not that I did a whole lot but own a Warn winch...lol  As far as I'm concerned it was a group award!  I'm glad to hear Jim is doing better and that everyone made it home ok.  Look forward to the next trip!

Jim is doing fine now.  However, I haven't heard how the camera did.  Hope the repair cost is minimal!

I heard from Jim.  He did break a rib right behind the right shoulder blade.
