And this is what I was doing (or wish I had been doing) while everyone fixed Doug's rig.   Oh I got a picture of the girl too for you guys - Farid could you distract her for me?,  sorry her arm is in the way of the sweater puppies... just was not what I aimed my camera at.

The rest of the pictures and videos will be at: http://kemmerrer.smugmug.com/travel-and-vacations/rubicon-trail-2011

I posted two videos there so far as a tease - one of Farid and one of SBS.   I'll post here when I get the rest uploaded.

We ended up staying in Stockton last night, too tired to drive all the way home.

I was on thousand dollar hill when my jeep imploded. I was started from a stop when the drivers side Upper control arm mounts ripped off the axle, which is also where the trackbar mounts. When the trackbar went, I then lost my passenger side upper control arm mount, and my driveshaft, followed by a shock.

A local skinny kid  who works at a placerville fab shop offered to crawl under there and weld a bunch of tabs onto the patched together brackets, and we made it out. Everyone pitched in to get me back up and running pretty impressive time for how much shit was broken.  Thanks Guys for all the help.

We had fun, the break wasn't as bad as it could have been, it just delayed getting off the trail 3 or 4 hours. We all tried to drown in the lake. good times.

ok.  Attempt number 3 seems to have uploaded MOST of the pictures to SmugMug.   Not sure about the videos.  They say "processing" but then dissapear.  I will have to open a ticket with SmugMug on that - never tried to upload video before - maybe its in the wrong format.   I also gave a copy of all pics and videos to BigDog.  And finally I have uploaded all of them to my DropBox.  If you have a drop box let me know your email address and I'll send you a link.  If you don't have one you can go here to get an account - its free for the first 2Gigs.  http://db.tt/CLdPlAp

Videos are only available via DropBox  :flipoff2: (see my previous post) - the level of my SmugMug account doesn't allow video. :waah:
