I was in Portland doing schoolwork and then yanking the engine out of what I thought was an EA81...

Thanks for the fun time everyone!
more pics in a little bit....
Oh, and along the way home I went offroad on a little hill climb, and sorta bent up my exhaust system... it was... uhh... dragging on the ground whenever I hit bumps or dips in the road all the way home, so when I got to my neighborhood auto parts store, I crawled under the car and hack-sawed the muffler right off and took it in to size up the pipe for a cherry bomb and adapter fittings! (although, need to re-arrange things under there so it fits without hanging down so low this time..) so I have open exhaust for now till its fixed! haha

Anyone get stuck on the way down waiting for the tree cutters?
It looked like a group of local(?) snowmobilers took it upon themselves to take down trees along the road if they looked like they were going to fall.
I was behind our Ms Congeniality Forest Ranger and she was out helping move branches. So I guess it was approved, just rotten timing

Thank you to Naomi and Craig for being good sports. Those there know why!!
A new group this year made this a fun event. My wife commented that there were only a few familiar faces at first. Thanks again to our old and new friends for joining us on our little annual winter adventure!!

Nice pics guys. That last one is me trying to pull Jesse up the hill.
Yeah, what you can't see in the pic is my tires spinning backwards.
Here's some of my pics.
Here's Eric (right before he "pulled" me up the hill)
Found a great veiw where we went sleding up FR7010.
Hey Ken did you of anyone else happen to find a boot at the gravel pit before you left? My brother Josh thinks it might have fell out of his truck while he was there.

I didn't take to many other pictures, I was too busy hanging out and eating lunch.

Just wanted to say thanks to everyone who helped get me unstuck! I hate being that guy Oh well
Lessons learned: You NEED good tires if you don't want to get stuck, trust me! Second lesson, I should have installed my paddle shifters and DCCD knob. Then I could do 2nd gear starts and lock up my AWD. I was not able to do that so that kinda hindered me. So I should have installed those before heading up there.
Next year I will have my 3" SJR lift installed with some 27" Bighorns, so traction and clearence shouldn't be an issue! I should also have my paddle shifter setup installed, so hopefully I won't be that guy again! Maybe I will be able to stay longer too if I am not so tired from working GY, meh. :-\
It was great meeting everyone and being able to put a face to the name. Thanks again Qman, Zap, Turbone, and anyone else involved with setting this up, it was fun! Hope to see you all next year!
