    I will not Tiptoe through life only to arrive safely to my death, with no scars or stories to tell. I will enter Hell sideways in a Burning pile of rubble, with a smile on my face asking if I can do it again !???

    Korisu,
    You told me that you almost had it.... LOL...... you didn't even get your tires on top of the second spot.....

    I thought that you at least climbed the second part and couldn't get the rear tires over the second climb like i got hung up. Now I really appreciate the little tug I got from Alex. REJECTED!

    That part is not easy..... The first time I tried it about 6 months ago, I got winched out from the rear. This time I was up and over but couldn't get traction on my front tires once I was on top of the climb. Alex gave me a light tug and I was up and over.

    I just remembered, a lifted Land Rover also broke his rear axle in that same spot the last time I was there, the day I also got winched out from the rear.

    We got home around 2130 last night. The trailer had a flat and I really thought Josh and his family were going to die when the suburban and the trailer swerved back and forth across lanes and into the shoulder for a couple of miles before he was able to regain control. Anyway, Josh took his family home and picked up a spare for the trailer and my wife, kid and I stayed with Chris by his Jeep at exit 40 66 East Bound until Josh got back and we loaded the jeep back on the trailer and headed home.

    We called Deigo asking if he knew any towing services that could help, but nobody was available and someone could help us, but in the morning.
