Had lots of fun at the Yankee Toys Fall Gathering this weekend! I took the running boards off my 4Runner and put on my old 31s for the weekend. Ran a powerline trail in Northfield on Friday, discovered a gas leak that evening and fixed it on Saturday (had to drop the tank), hung out with lots of cool folks Saturday night that I'd met online, then wheeled a trail called Ma Bell today. I took bypasses where it was hopeless without lockers, but still found some challenges. Here's a few pics from today -

Todd comfortably climbs the entrance.

A group of Jeeps was coming down and we stopped to watch them try this steep climb. None made it.

Todd discusses his options with a spotter. He only used his lockers when he absolutely had to, and went everywhere.

My 4Runner got it's first body-dent on the way back down.

I brought along my girlfriends son for his first real wheelin' day. He took a pic of my rear bumper, it was spotless before this weekend.

That little dent above the tailight. I just got the 4Runner, it's never been wheeled before this weekend.

<STRONG>why did todd need a spotter?</STRONG>
That pic doesn't really show the angle and there was a rock under his Cruiser.

Same event (Yankee Toys Fall Gathering) on a different trail. There was a slick stump on the right that slid the ass-end of the FJ40 into this boulder. Lots of blown tires this weekend and new dents and scratches. No rolls though.
