He's referring to a grey eb w/ like 31 x 8 and I saw this guy drive and he wasnt treading lightly

Btw Franko thanks again for the clamp even though you refused payment.The line held longer than I expected

Franko- it definitely wasn't you- sorry for the confusion.

I don't want to blast anyone on here (or not on here). I would just like to believe he wasn't thinking. I was pretty aggravated about it and the wife said I needed to focus on getting Shep's truck out in one piece. She really does balance me!!

Normally I would have said something to them on the spot... at least about getting off the concrete- splashing the water can be useful on occasion if the water crossing is protected.

Tail Of the Dragon Pix

Well since I broke down I missed being with the line of Broncos doing the Dragon. So I searched for the later time slot and found them. I gotta say I was pushing it hard I was actually pretty inpressed how well it did in those corners.

Thumbs up

ShepCJ71s half cab was initially behind me, didn't realize he broke down until I was around corner, so I stopped to let the lead broncos know to stop. Glad it was running again the next day! Nice window grafting, btw.

The dark grey/ black rhinolined rig then ended up behind me and was blazing the creek crossings.

Mountain Rams green bronco did a stand up job towing him to the Dragon!
...could have been any of us. What a great group!

I have been considering one of those Go Pro cameras... Not too pricey but I am waiting to see if I can afford the Wi-Fi remote version that is supposed to come out soon...

I would like to see some photos from yours... I saw you had it mounted on your windshield.

That cab is pretty trick.... I loved everything you did with it.... the sun roof is awesome... making me think seriously about trying something like that with my hard top. You did an incredible job.
