Aggro and another guy were long gone past that hole when those pics were taken. I have pics of the toyota extraction I'll try to get up later. It only took one winch, a lot of shoveling and about an hour to get the toy out. The boys seemed like cool guys that got caught in a storm. The rigs were plenty equipped. That hole is a sloppy mess, Aggro spent a lot of time winching to get past it. It stopped the group on Friday and I put on my waders to pull cable.

A big thanks to Chris, Alfred, Ken, the Pirates and everyone else who helped out in this situation. K5 was running pretty rough coming out, but Chris bypassed the isolater and she started running much better after that.

Sorry for the lag on the pics and updates and what not, no internet at my house right now. will try to get some stuff up today.

thanks again!

Morgan

Looks like Klune is going to step up and do the right thing. We are keeping our fingers crossed. Glad you boys made it home, but my reputation is quickly going down the more people see this yota at my house.

That's very nice of you Chris. We were debating taking the compressor out of the bronco for the fj, I'd like to not do that. Maybe there is something we can help you with or give you a little $$ for it?
You have our number, give us a call sometime.

I was up on the trail this weekend. Aside from a couple huge ruts at the 2nd crossing (as you're heading in), the trail is in great shape. The weather was clear all weekend, until we made it back to the water crossings. The sleet started coming down heavy as we changed a slit tire on the other rig in our pair; he lost a tire just before entering the long crossing. Sleet turned to heavy snow by the time we reached WWCG. The snow stopped long enough to reseat an inner bead on the same rig (just a hint of his tough weekend ), then resumed until we had descended back to 50 and headed for In-N-Out for some grub before our drive back to the bay area.


Two pissers:

1) We picked up a sixer worth of Corona bottles and a couple Bud Light cans. Not much trash on any given weekend, but for them to be out there in these conditions strongly suggests a dedicated wheeler in a capable rig was also the callous and thoughtless a-hole that left his refuse on the trail. IN THE MIDDLE OF THE TRAIL.

2) On our way into the trail, we saw a full garbage bag buried in the snow by the water crossings. We made note of the location and committed to recover it on the way out. Well, tough times on my buddy's part and heavy sleet then snow at the time we reached the location and, you guessed it, we forgot to dig out and recover the bag. We did recover some of the loose trash, including a Coleman lantern manual and some food wrappers. Anyone heading in soon, please look for this bag. It'll be embedded in the top of the snowbank near the water crossings, on the right side (as you're heading in).

Because of the relevance; the condition of the water crossing area, and the proximity of the beer bottles/cans and trash to that area.

I plan to post a thread with some pics, once I get some time.

The water crossings are usually like that in the winter,there has been quite a few people up there since the pulling out of the vehicles.I know of at least 3-4 people(they all drink coors) up there this week,they had said they had seen others up there as well.Could be that maybe others had gotten stuck there and left there trash.I dont think its very nice to come up with your own conculsions.The toyota I pulled home had 4 or 5 bags of trash very well strapped down.

Wow, thats crazy, me, my dad, and my fiance were all up at loon sledding and stuff on Monday, we saw what i know now was the SAR guys in a white suburban with a ton of antenas and red/blue lights on it towing a trailer with 2 sleds, and 2 jeeps.
I wish i would have known all this was going on, i would have offered to help.
we were sleding down icehouse road on the way down from loon when we saw the CHP chopper fly over. Also saw a linx on the way up, that was pretty sweet.
Glad they all got out ok.
