We made it to the first pit with no real issues other than the fuel sender not working and the gps being difficult. It didn't want to stay on heading up and kept trying to turn us around. Colby did the best he could trying to tell whether we should be going left or right since we never knew which way was straight :). We gave everything a once over at the pit and took a little time to catch our breath. Ken and my dad manned the pit crew and we got some gas and food and headed back out.
We rolled through the main pit without stopping and headed back out for lap 2. Got of course a few times thanks to the GPS still being screwy but things were going pretty well. Got to some rocks and helped another team weld up their knuckle for a while. Gotta have good trail-karma! We did start to fall pretty far behind though and still had a long way to go. We ended up getting stuck behind some other rigs for awhile coming down Jack and didn't roll into Chocolate Thunder until pretty late in the afternoon. That was fun though! had to stop after the first section though cause the lockers weren't working. Turns out we melted an ARB line so we got that fixed up and headed back out. had some fun on CT, might of hit the rev limiter a few times and the exhaust was pretty much broken at that point so the little 4 banger sounded pretty good :).
Started getting dark and we eventually timed out at RM90 or so. we were gonna try and finish anyway and kept going for a little while but met up with Ken and my dad and we decided to call it a day. After getting back to camp under our own power and having a beer, we found that we had torn a sidewall in one of the tires and it was getting flat. the studs in the front diff had pulled out and the whole third was wobbling around. The tcase halves had started to separate and the case was spewing oil. Good thing we called it a night :).
