Mike(Desertdawg), Mike(who is going to be a new member here), and I ran Die Hard today. We met up at 7:30, and headed out. Blew through it pretty quick, with minimal carnage. Mike(Desertdawg) broke his rear sway bar, and consequently ripped off a rear shock. I put a hole in my steering stabilizer from a rock. Very little body damage, which was very lucky. We ran it so fast, I didn't get many pics, but here are a few.

No sense in two threads.

Me Lance and Mike ran Diehard today. Man what a trail! This was probably the most challenging trail I have been on to date. What an awesome day!

The only carnage was that I broke my rear sway bar which allowed the shock to extend too far and broke the bar pin and spit the rear spring out. I didn't need that sway bar anyway!

Lance, didn't know yall were running die hard today... My buddy Keith (SCY TJ) and I ran it last night. Good fun. Looks like you were smart in removing the windshields... I have some pretty good rash on the passenger side of my WS frame, but the glass is still in good shape.

Ah, we wondered what you all were running Danno. We saw you all pull off the freeway last night. We were over on the East Side of TM Rd, went tooling around on term and didn't see any other lights in the river bed or around predator and stuff. Glad you got to get out.

BTW, Lower Term has some interesting lines again after there seems to have been a ****e load of water running thru there over the last few weeks.
