Winchfest 2017 Workday
Don't think I've ever run cable so many times in one day! Went up to help put together another bridge. Ended up having to use the winch quite a bit! It's mucky out there.

Jeep got covered in mud Confused .. Last pull of the day my winch stopped working. Also broke the Iron Rock Offroad tracbar ( junk ). Luckily the winch was just a lose ground that arced to the point that it stopped working Apparently it doesn't ground through the body.

Here's some pics!

Thanks again for all the hard work Mike! I really appreciate it. It's funny that area looks so innocent and crossable in pictures but turns into a bottomless pit after two or three rigs try it. I only took a couple pictures, glad you got an after shot.

It was a lot of fun. Mike's (purple) Cherokee did great. First off road trip. Even got to test out the bumper on it.

Definitely put the Horror Fraught winch to the test!

We had a great time and have some photos and a couple videos to share. Learned a lot and can't wait to get out again.

Must have been the wheels that made the exhaust fall off ...

Great pictures and video! Glad you made it up. Very good driving, getting around that mud after the bridge was well done! The exhaust photo is good too but you've got a ways to go to catch up to Roz!
