12 days in the bush

andy came back up to alaska for some wheeling and camping. by the 25th we hit the road on are way to the dickie lake trail. made it to northpole for got some batteries for the small hand helds got back to the truck and andy says "want the good news or the bad" the good news i say. the rear pinion is leaking oil. whats the bad news "the pinion has alms a 1/2 in of play". we limp the truck pack to the house. and take it apart as far as we can with out the 1 1/2 in 3/4 dive socket that is the only one that is missing from the shop (i think dusty borrowed it). any how was to late at this point to do much of anything. in the morning took it down to youngs and got it all fixed back up and was back on the road befor noon.

have to say that they have made the trail quite easy to run but still bumpy. got in to camp Friday and got set up almost every after noon had a little fox visit camp and every night porcupines licking the walls of the tents. fishing was good as always at the middle fork witch is were we camped. my gf came in tuseday along with matt and tina and there twin boys on atvs. the bugs buy this time were pretty bad. made a few trail runs from camp over the next couple of days.

thursday we packed camp up and headed out to mcclaren river. were we all got showers and did a little more 4x4ing. got to rescue the lodge boat it had sucked a stick and rocks and couldn't get back up on step to get out of the small off shoot of the river that they met up with us on the mcclaren river road trail. had a great 4th of july there.

any way time for some pics. i will try to keep them in order. most of the pic are more of a camping type thing then 4x4ing. but between the cameras we had i have almost 300pics to dig through
