Last Sunday we made a run to Three Rocks on Blanchard pass for a few trees and some wheeling. I was late due to some fuel supply issues so I had to play catch up. Three Scouts and a TJ met up at the Mead Yokes. I caught up with them on the Elk Chatteroy Road and we meet up with the fifth Scout at the trail head.
The road up the pass was in good condition and we made it through without any major effort.

It was snowing off and on driven by 20+ MPH winds.

Cory and Nathan each lost a tire to sidewall punctures.

The conditions were a little worse by the time we actually got there.

Then we tried to make it out the back way but the drifts got the better of us so we turned around, grabbed a couple of trees and called it a day.
Sorry no picture of the trees this time.

Neat pics. Thanks for sharing. Looks like somebody's fingers might have been a little cold while fixing that tire.

As a past president, fun wheeler, and all around good guy JAFJO (AKA IH Crazy) is always welcome on JI Runs, even if he was in a Pinto.
He was the guy in line in front of Cory's stock Traveler and gave him a tug a few times. I can't say anything bad about his rig, we have been hooked together in the past and he was the one doing the pulling. Although it was due to a flooded carburetor and not a stuck. :dontknow:

I was thinking about getting the xo mud terains how did the side wall go :scratch:
If you're referring to the ProComp XTerains he slid sideways into the top of a downed snag running about 5 PSI. I was right behind him, he snapped off a chunk about a foot long and 3 inches around. If you're referring to the stocker tire nobody knows for sure what took it out.
