Re: My "Hero" Blog

Next, I took my Dad and Grandpa through the Rubicon for Fathers Day with a few of my friends and their Dads. It was such a great feeling watching them enjoy the Rubicon experience. We went in Loon and out Tahoe. Here are a few pictures.

My buddy Tucker pretzeled his driveshaft in his IFS Yota on Big Sluice, so we hit it with a rock until it was straight again and then I welded 5 wrenches and a screwdriver to it to strengthen it. It was welded using two batteries hooked up in series, jumper cables as leaders, and 5 pairs of sunglasses as a welding hood. It made it all the way through the Springs and up Cadillac Hill with no issues, and even drove 60+ all the way home on the highway with minimal driveline vibrations.

Such a wonderful trip and is definitely one I will never forget!
