This was a weekend ride to Rausch Creek that Mindy had setup.

On Saturday we ran trail 13 and trail 10. Then we ran lower 3, upper 3, and finished up on trail 1.

On Sunday we ran trail 2, trail 4 and Yellow Jacket Ridge on trail 4. Then we ran blue section of the Cumberland Valley (CV) trail. We ended up running 15 and most of trail 12.

It was an awesome weekend, despite a ton of breakage on my part. So, thanks to Mindy for setting this up. Also, thanks to Mike, his girlfriend, Blake, Blake's family, and JT for making this so much fun.

Thanks also to everone that helped me change my tire. I know it wasn't easy on that incline.

I would also like to thank everyone who helped me take care of my Jeep when I stalled in the water.

Also, thanks to JT for the replacement tie rod and to JT and Blake's Dad for the help putting it on (meaning that they did most of the work while I watched).

My carnage list....

Snapped Tie Rod
Dented Oil Pan
Bent Rear Bumper
Blown Bead on a New Tire
Mud Clogged Radiatior Causing Jeep to Run Hot
Swamped CB
Worthless Rear Brakes (hopefully due to mud)
Ruined Set of Nike's From Standing in the Mud

And maybe more if I can ever get all the mud off.
