Clifford has taken over the Carnage page now. Well, he is trying.

August 30 @
Norrish Creek
Put the left rock slider to good use on 6' under.

Also tagged the left rear quarter panel.

And the right rear quarter panel.

Coming up Can-Opener, I got to close to some brush, and there
was a large stump hiding within.

Luckily Indir saw it and told me to stop before major damage occured.

I also had an electrical gremlin that took out my headlights, Rancho
compressor, volt-meter, auxillary power outlets and turn signals. I also
lost the left marker light and the right brake light.

@ the Whipsaw
I was going through a rather deep water hole, filled with snow and ice, but on the third
attempt to get out, all the snow and ice built up under the front of the Bronco and
pushed the lower radiator hose into the fan blade.

I tried some special "radiator repair tape" that I had, but it wouldn't hold.

Luckily Ryan had a spare "uni-hose" and Tim had an extra hose clamp, and I booty-fabbed
a hose. It got me going and made the rest of the trip much more enjoyable.

Grenaded another axle joint. At least it was theleft side this time.

@ Harrison West
I tagged the rock at the start of the Weaver/Francis traverse.

A combination of the flexing and twisting from yeasrs of
wheeling and rust caused some new rattles on this trip.

Guess it's time to do some more bodywork.

Near the end of the day, I started hearing a lout "clanking" coming
from under the truck. After a quick inspection, we found that the right
front caliper hardware had broken and fell out, leaving the just bolt in place.

The u-joint broke and took out the ears off the right front axle shafts.

The impact pushed the the upper ball joint up, about 1/16".
I drove on it like this for the rest of the day. Upon changing the
ball joint, I found the pre-load collar was broken in four pieces.
