Daryl and Crystal, Bill, and Myself with my son in law Zach went on a last minute snow run today.
I have recently installed a V8 in my S10 Blazer and it was not trail tested yet. I have been working the last few weeks to fix some computer and fuel injection issues.
Bill just completed his install of a 401 in his Jeep and had not been on a trail with it.
Daryl and Crystal have been dealing with computer and fuel injection issues for about 10 days ( they blame in on a Chevy virus their Jeep supposedly caught from my Blazer)
So today we went on a snow run to the 41 road out of Sunset Falls near Yacolt Wa.
After a decent snow covered trek up 41 we encountered a snow drift that would stop us from continuing.
I decided that "just for fun" I would work on the drift for a couple tries. I told EVERYONE that I did not expect to go more than about 20 more feet. So... Cameras pointed toward me... I gave it a vew shots. I eventually buried myself to the top of my 37.5" tires and could no longer move my Blazer.
Daryl was anxiously awaiting my failure,,, as he was currently carrying the bell from our new years day run ( where his Jeep caught that virus, and was towed home on a strap by me ).
Before I could even exit my truck, Daryl was hovering around the front of my truck looking for a place to hang my new award.
Thanks for the Honor of being allowed to further the journey of THE COW BELL .

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.
