After the Ladee Flats Cleanup the wheelin was happening. We were making our way through the 800 trail and as we get to the log crawl it splits to a watery rock crawl, a log crawl, and of course a bypass. Kenny and his XJ take the rocks, Carmmel navigates the LJ through the rocks and I decide...heck, I'm gonna take the logs!!! Drive my front tires onto the first log and feel it's slippery, front tires drop off the back side and I continue forward until I come to a dead stop. I'm hung up on something!!! I try reverse to reposition, and all 4 tires free spinning. I'll tell ya, lockers do no good when no tires grab lol.
Hannah hollers "TRANSFERCASE!" So I jump out to assess the situation.
Tranny crossmember has dug into the log. Fortunately Bruiser was right behind me so I pulled his cable and Darel easily helped me off the log.
I could not let the log crawl beat me so after I unhooked the Crowder's winch, I attacked the logs with a different angle and drove through with a smile
When I first asked what the cowbell was, I was told "If you wheel hard enough, you'll push the boundaries of what you know you're rig is capable of, and you'll get stuck, and THAT'S how you know you're doin it right!"
Looks like loads of fun, can't wait to get the cowbell!

Wyldman: The Cowbell... If you are a club member and you're on one of our wheelin' trips. If you get stuck on an obstacle and have to be pulled out by your winch or someone elses winch/strap. You earn the Cowbell.

poorboy: Wyldman, I got to see the passing of the bell at the meeting and learned quite a bit about the tradition.
