Demontang was the Trail Boss on this run. He took us out on some trails we had never been on before.

This trail was a little off camber.

It started getting muddy.

We stopped on the top of the ridge to take in the view.

Looking down at the valleys around Yakima County.

We headed back down.

That did not work so well. Her Jeep decided it could not run in reverse. Another sensor messing up. Soggymountain thought he would try to winch 99's XJ up the hill.

That did not work so well so he pulled her back.

A little carnage.

Scuba decide to drive down the trail 99 didn't make it up. I missed it. Waycrazy decided he wanted to drive down it.

The snow gave way and the CJ started siding in the low part.

He was all the way on his side.

Waycrazy drove out of that on his own.

Scuba came up to ask us if we would pull him back if he couldn't make it up the off camber climb since his sensor would not let him back up either.

Soggymountain said he would so Scuba went for it.

That didn't work so Soggymountain pulled Scuba out too.

The L T Murry was more than I thought it would be. That was a very fun day riding around with 99. Now it is time to put her XJ back together. :laughing6:
