Shoecreek VA run 11/23/08

Took a day run with the local jeep club to Shoecreek VA. This is near Crabtree Falls in the Jefferson National Forest if there are any locals who may know the area. I was the only person rocking a Commander and kept pace with all the other rigs, most that have had extensive mods made. Here are a few pictures. My cousin rode along, so once I get copies o fhis photos, I will post some more.

Heading to the trailhead


Lining up on the traihead (most aired down, but I didn't)


One of many water crossings

Ran across a Land Rover that destroyed his rear end. We stopped and heped him get the springs back on so he can get back down the mountain.

Just a couple more shots. I'll try to get some more from the other guys and get them posted. Overall the run was great! It was 35 and clear. We couldn't have asked for better weather.

Unfortunately, we couldn't stop laughing at his license plate. We tied his front end to a tree and used a winch to jerk his axle back in place. Next we used two hi lifts to raise it so he could put the spring back in place. He then used ratchet straps and his hi lift handle to "hold" the rear in place till he go to the top of the trail where he called a friend with a trailer to come get him.

Man, that sucks for the Land Rover.

I still have to make it out to Shoe Creek one of these days.

Great pics!
