Great trip!
We had 4 vehicles,

Scott's White 87 GL Wagon
Dylan's Red EA81 Wagon
Brian's Red Isuzu Trooper
Karls Red Jeep

Lots of damages and plenty of challenging offroad situations.

3 blown tires (Scott, Dylan, Brian)
1 bent rim (Brian)
1 bent radius rod (Scott)
1 front axle break (Brian, probably a locking hub)
1 blown rear end (Dylan, probably broken spider gears)
1 broke off side mirror (Scott)
1 slightly ripped top (Karl)
A few busted turn signal lights
A few bent bumpers
Lots of exra dents in the side doors
1 broken headlight (Dylan ?)
1 smoked clutch (Dylan)

We used most of the tools and spare parts brought along.
Including both winches

Overall it was a very succesful trip. All vehicles came out of the woods under their own power, although a couple had to be towed through the rough spots.

Here's a couple pictures to whet your appetite. I haven't reviewed the videos yet, but hope to have highlights posted online and DVD's available within the next few days.

I'm glad I went with you the last time, I can recognize all of those places in the pics. :)

Hopefully next weekend we'll be able to generate some shots that are as worthy as those. Thanks Rollie and Scott for sharing.

This one's getting a little redundant though. lol

So I found my camera, and there were some pics of shop night before the Walker valley trip:

Notice: Larger tire going on (Scott's side) Smaller tire coming off (My side)

We had to beat the fenders out a bit so the wheels didn't rub.

This picture is cool because you see exactly what the front of my car looked like before the trip.
