When Nothing Goes Right
In the past five years I've built five trucks to go on Ultimate Adventure-an Avalanche, the Tacoma, my Clampy Toyota, the FJ Cruiser, and last year's UAJK Jeep. Most of the time I've built these with the amazing help of some awesome shops, and though we were on a tight timeline, everything fell into place in the final hour so we could hit the trail. But this year just wasn't my year.
On the first day of wheeling I hiked the trail and took photos of the rest of the group. The rockcrawling in the Black Hills is awesome and I swore I would return with my Fun Buggy when it's done, but the next day when everyone else left for North Dakota, I stayed behind to try and fix my broken rig. Tune in next month to see whether I fixed the old truck, traded it for a hot-rod El Camino to get home, or if I'm now a South Dakota resident making my living as a tour guide at Mount Rushmore.
