A little test run!

It's official, Kermit has been back on the trail!!!!! I went out and did a "test run" out on Chinamans Gulch in Beuna Vista CO. It was a GREAT day and despite the few issues he had Kermit did GREAT!!! I ended up busting the DIY extended slip yolk I made, then i sheered off the "mounting" bolts for the driver side hub, then the rear slip yolk ujoint started to go. But it drove the whole trail under it's own power, never had to pull cable (other than to pull a Heep off a rock) and despite all the snow and ice he went almost every where I pointed him! I definitely need to get use to those low gears, 1st gear 4lo is almost useless! LOL!!

Anyway we all love pics so here are a few of my favorites. not too many from me because I have gotten any from the others that went so these are just mine.

How the day started


1st little rock pile






The "Rock Garden"








One of my favorite pics of the day!


The "Whale Tail"




The next rock pile


Coming back down the back side.


and then finally back at the parking lot.

Nick, good to see you're back on the trail. I have a broken timing belt I haven't gotten
to because of the cold. Need to do some body work on the right windshield frame so I can
get a new windshield in there. The polyshield one is getting pretty hard to see thru.

Neale, good to see your still around! That sucks about the timing belt and the windshield. That's one of the reasons why I haven't gone poly, afraid of it getting to cloudy to see out.
