Took a wheeling trip to hollister hills on may 20th 2007. Went with my girlfriend, matt and his blazer and our buddy carl and some jeeps. was pretty sick. ill post up the video soon.
Before we left:
hitting up a rock climb i didn't even know existed. the burb couldnt make the squeeze past the big boulders near the top.
at the top of truck hill... water started spewing out of the radiator so we investigated...
looking down on the mortals
look at that flex!
here's my buddy matt and his '77 taking truck hill.
this guy had a pretty sick truck... i hope to get something like this someday with a solid axle swap and everything.
chelsea riding my bike around and having a good time
then the fun started. ill tell you what happened in order:
1: took the burb through the mudpit.
2: powered through it with no problem
3: hit up one of thos huge dirt mounds and apparently caught 4 feet of air... and naturally that's the part that my friend forgot to film
4: drove through the water trap
5: then i let my green eyed she wheeler take the wheel for a go at the mudpit.
6: she stayed out of the 3 foot deep ruts but then slipped into one and totally broke the bead on the left front tire. it was my fault mostly because i aired it down wayyy to low. im sure the jump didnt help at all.
7: got a guy in a big chevy to pull me out. ripped my bumper up. no worries that thing was free and rust-eaten.
8: since i forgot the spare, and we lost the valve stem in the mud somewhere, we had to drive back to santa cruz, pick it up and come back to hollister. good times. here's some pics:
look at the look on my girl's face. its priceless!
here's my girlfriend's butt
here's the burb... back in aptos.
the full size spare
we broke off the door latch so i gotta pick up a new one
if you watch their faces i'm sure you can tell what's going on
1. is he gonna make it?
2. oh man sucks to be that guy right now
3. it REALLY sucks to be that guy right now
4. there goes the bumper
