That's the first name I thought as well. I think he broke a axle housing, fixed it and kept going.

My memory isn't soo hot and searching anywhere just brings up koh related topics.

Nailed it! The Driving home was the most dangerous part without a doubt. I did get a 45min nap in an Arby's parking lot before driving 7hrs home though.

I will get there some day. I'm still young and although I have a great job I only get 5 days of vacation a year. It will take me all of that just to drive out there and back from Michigan if I'm pulling a trailer. Some day

arse_sidewards I'd do 24hr no problem. It's easy to stay awake when you're busy doing something you like. Driving home would be the dangerous part.

94toytruck Yeah, back in the day we killed it. Now that I'm in my mid 40's I'll pass.

Not really.

In my 30s Id be all over it. Not so much any more.

I like day trips and amazing dinners and a sunset booze cruise.
not really a man-card thing. Like doing the Baja 1k, just do it to try. But yeah as you get older it's harder to get pumped up to try it again.

TimCubed I've done Fordyce and the Rubicon over a weekend, I remember getting tired of being thrown around, the rig was squeaking, and just was not a lot of fun near the end.

OP - I actually watched this video on youtube already before seeing this post. When is pt 2 coming out?

It's not for everyone. We had several quit after about 8-10 hours. It's more challenging then just doing a weekend trip.

YotaAtieToo Gotten pretty close at moonrocks a few times. Which is far easier said than done, most new people break major shit within a few hours off the trailer. Basically v ditches and climbs covered in 24 grit sand paper.
