I'm pretty sure this is were Tom broke all his welds.  He hasn't been the same since.

WOW  :o

I've only heard of this event and here it is documented for all to see. When I joined in September of 2006 people were still talking about this cattle guard to end all cattle guards. To a newbie like me I could only imagine the massive truck devouring sizing that the must have been ... and the picture matches my wildest fears. OMG why do they allow such cattle guards to exist? There has to be a law ... do it for the children if nothing else. I'm writing my California state congressmen tonight ... who's with me? For the love of all that is 4WD do it.

If I remember right, your original caption said something about "and Frank walks away in disgust."
I like sammiches.  And bacon.  Sammiches with bacon.  And chips.  Lots of chips.

I think this is another one for Mitch. IIRC Mitch was leading this xpedition. He was ahead of us and said that there was a big rock in the road and that we couldn't make it around it. After we pitched camp we went up to look at the rock.

The road into Death Valley when we said goodbye to Logan, as shot by Desertratessa.  It was a small run, and we camped in Butte Valley at Geologist's cabin, which had been one of Logan's fave spots to stop.  There, everyone swapped stories, talked about how he would go wheeling in his Volvo, and left a few framed pics in the cabin.

Never went mudding into DV before.  Everything about it made it a special trip.

I've been paid (rather handsomely) to not post the pictures of Brian in the hot spring during the Jawbone/Sierra trip.  ;D
