Things I learned at The Crawl

Here are a few things I learned:

DOUGIE DOUG DOUG!!!!!!!!!!!!
Tim and Doug need a sitcom
The SEC guys are alright too
Brian and Jager don't mix well
Tyler can build a mean ass rig
Stump is an aspiring Rally driver
Climbing a mountain in a Jeep is a Blast!

Re: Things I learned at The Crawl

You can fit a queen size air mattress in the back of a F250
Doug owns stock in several u-joint companies
Stacy makes a mean rice krispie treat
If it's moving, Nick will film it (right up until you blow the horn at him)
What Tim lacks in traction, he makes up for with valve float
Brian has two spotting techniques (ask him which one you are before you start)
Craig WILL find a rock to put under his diff on every trail

Glenn has a sense of humor (somebody has a picture of the ghostbusters tshirt, right?)
Glenn still breaks the most stuff and yet somehow weasels out of the trophy

Re: Things I learned at The Crawl

SEC campfires are a good time.
You can frog gig in a mud puddle.
after the drop into lions den you can't stop your hand from shaking.
Nick runs a stick welder pretty well.
a 4.8L half ton can get 14 MPG towing my junk.
Upper Damnation hadn't been run in 3 years, there's a reason.
Lions Den was fun for me, not so fun for the MJ.
Harlan was everything Brian hyped it to be.

Re: Things I learned at The Crawl

buy a map..
don't do pee breaks when every one in your group has a tendency to ditch you..
trail 20 served as a baja course for the LS2 XJ..
wear a hat of some sort to keep the deer ticks and regular ticks off your head..
deet doesn't seem to work on dogs, rubi was covered in nats...
Tree vs Jeep = Tree wins
check the batteries in your air mattress pump before leaving home...
Never ask the atv'ers if a group of jeeps went thataway?

Re: Things I learned at The Crawl

i learned

at this rate i SHOULD own stock in u-joint companies.
the less pieces your hatch breaks into the harder it is to haul back to camp
i probably should have asked for a recount on the carnage award vote
RCV shafts are worth every penny
forgetting pillows sucks
tim's rollcage works pretty well
dropping a bus into loins den makes for good entertainment
and the best way to increase the jeep budget is to let your other half have a blast driving up middle rock garden

Re: Things I learned at The Crawl

I worry too much.
The SEC recovery team works well together.
The Hawk Eye overlook is beautiful.
Mother Nature liked us this year.
MWC guys are pretty darn cool guys to wheel with.
V8's in XJ's make them fast, very fast.
Ticks like me.
The wheelin' is goooooood.

Re: Things I learned at The Crawl

Tim needs to practice NOT destroying sheet metal
24 LB injectors are too big for a stock headed stroker
James carries his hotel in his trailer
Latney; his comes in his truck
An LS2 in an XJ is a scary thing, but it sure is quick!
Lion's Den is NOT a place for a full bodied XJ, even if you have a cage.
MTRs just don't compare to Swampers... ever.
Pizza and Wings are good, but I'm still feelin' them

I hung with it pretty well, but had it not been so narrow and twisty I would never have kept up. That thing is quick!

I learned that while 8.8s are great, but they almost require 35's or bigger.
Bring the jeep on a trailer, then you can have more fun.
Being locked front and rear is a good thing.
Exhaust run too close to the body means carpet catches on fire, but I'm not the only one.
Having a coffee pot will get you bacon.
Blake can't launch bottle rockets by hand but he can get a lucky shot.

Re: Things I learned at The Crawl

Bacon is also a form of currency in the SEC
I should wait until the sun is bright enough in the AM before getting out of my sleeping bag so I'm not confused for a bear
Jager, pizza, jager, frog legs.
Harlan is a mostly dry county and the one town that does have beer only sells miller lite, bud lite, and coors lite.
Glenn has a ghostbusters shirt! And carries his wine bag proudly in the back of his jeep lol

Re: Things I learned at The Crawl

Mother Nature can be nice...
Lions Den....wow, just wow.
The stray horse on a trail with a blue eye, is cool, but explaining to a 7 year old that we can't take it home is tough.
If you can't go backwards, then you got to go forwards.
TOO much winching will make the alternator a little hot.
Harlan is the bomb for some good wheeling.
Fireworks can actually sound like cannons going off.
I need a remote control for my winch...


You just can't beat good friends and good wheeling!!

Re: Things I learned at The Crawl

'Killin Time' trail can be run in under 90 seconds.
Rebecca will NOT be bringing any Pugs to future rock crawling events.
Body damage does not count in the Carnage Award.
Brian Ho mixed with a half liter of Jager brings the funny...and frog flavored burps.
Bacon is currency.
I covet an LS-2 engine.
RCV axle shafts are worth it.
My 4.0 liter runs just fine at the rev limiter, even on its side.
Midwest Chapter folks are welcome round' my campfire anytime.
My rear bumper needs more trianglation.
