Not if he breaks that as well.


Lutz I love the video. Great pick on the song. And the wide angle came out really cool.

We got home ok too, except once we started going down the mountain the LR3 shook like crazy over 40mph. I noticed the front right wheel weight was missing from the bead popping off on the trail. We got to A tire shop in Clovis finally. They looked at it and found a gallon of water in the tire. I thought that was pretty funny and a relief. Any way $20 bucks later we were on our way again this time cruising at 70+. I just wanted to thank everyone who help me out and made this a fun trip!!

As stated previously and in person, great trip, Brenton. Thanks for all the work and the leadership. We had a little of everything and then some.

30 minutes before I got home I crossed some railroad tracks and heard a clanking sound. Pulled over to find my rear sway bar dragging on the ground. The welds broke, but it was still attached via the bolts. Was unable to remove the nuts/bolts with my lack of strength (they were pretty stuck) but was lucky enough to be within 200 yards of a service station. Pulled in and 15 minutes and $10 later, i was back on the road. Also found that my driver's side axle stop is broken. Not too shabby given the punishment, especially the high-speed descent in the dark.

The full length video finally finished processing on YouTube. It's about 35 min long with a lot of 1080p footage off the iPhone 4S. Enjoy!

And the funny part was Chuck trying to stop Mike from flipping over with his Camel Trophy by his hands. Yeah..... Right!!!! I hope you don't do that again Chuck! Good reflexes though.! LOL

Wow! Tippy! So glad to see that the Camel Trophy didn't gain anymore 'character' on the trip.

I must say that the LR3s in stock form took that pretty well. There is something to be said for all the electronics, traction control and extra lift from air suspension they have incorporated, even though many see it is as a crutch. Pretty impressive...

Maybe next year we will join in the festivities...

Yes, but wait till the electronics fail on you when you really need it. 3 amigos ring a bell.... or chime ? WARNING WARNING !!! Your tire is slipping and I can't help you ABORT ABORT!!! (sirens blaring)

Pretty stupid split second for me -- I got smart fast...

It was amazing to me watching the vehicles go up it and then back down. Based on the type -- each had challenges. The biggest issue was long wheel base with no lockers. We really should have had the Camel winched -- not yanked -- then the excitement would not have been has fun though...

Ohhh pleeeze. He was safe and sound. I was just testing his "seal-like water tightness". Elliot would know more about that than me.

Hey this is the very section we worked on a few years ago when Ron, Jim, Leigh and I volunteered to do Bald Mtn cleanup. We helped install those metal barriers on the left.
