Both trips were great. We had six vehicles on Saturdays Pilot Rock trip, we were even fortunate enough to get to help a guy in his side by side. I don't really know what he was doing, but he wasn't doing it right. Scott pulled his up the hill with his winch.

There was 4 vehicles and 7 of us that camped out at Crab Flats on Saturday night.
Holcomb creek was a great trail. There were 10 vehicles in our group and we only saw one other group all day. It wasnt necessarily easy but with some skilled driving Jake made it through in his nearly stock D1 on street tires and I in my nearly stock D2. The lifted trucks all made it through, just a little bit faster.
I didn't get a lot of pictures on either trip, anyone that got some pictures please post them up.

Overall it was a great weekend, thank you everyone for coming along.

It's hard to miss Keanan's sneakers on an average day, let alone when the're right in front of the camera. :P

Thanks Keenan for putting together a great weekend. Wish I could have gone on Holcomb and even considered it as I was pulling out of camp. But since I damaged a shock on the first day it turned out it was better I did not.

Once I was home and pulled both front wheels I was able to tell what caused the damage. Actually something in the shock either broke or wore out allowing it to articiulate more then it should thus allowing the upper control arm make contact with the air spring housing. The only thing keeping it from probably going any further was the the sway bar link. The extra articulation also seems to be what bent that swaybar link that we straightened out after the trail. The suspnsion error that was popping up was just a byproduct of the over articulation causing an out of range error since the car was detecting that the suspension should not be going that far.

As soon as I swapped the shock the problem seems to be gone.
