Part 4 of Ultimate Adventure 2016. Once camp is made, the shenanigans invariably begin. After a long, hard day on the trail there’s nothing better than cooking dinner over an open campfire, relaxing in your tent, and watching your buddy’s face as he realizes you’ve wired his horn into his ‘fridge thermostat control. Okay, we didn’t do the horn trick (this year at least) but thanks to our early start on Day 4 we had camp set up with enough daylight left to bust out the water balloon cannon and some fun party tricks. Day 5 began with T-cases in Low Range and hubs locked – just the way we like it. We re-entered the trail from Buck Island Lake on the way to Big Sluice. And man, was it torn up. Ground up sheetmetal, snapped brake lines, and some other broken parts and field fix opportunities were our reward for a great day on the trail. Straight through Rubicon Springs with a little history lesson on our way up the off-camber, cliffhanging Cadillac Hill. Man, the fullsize Super Duty and Chevy trucks really enjoyed that! With the Rubicon behind us we made it more or less unscathed to our night’s stop in Truckee, CA. But one of our rigs wouldn’t be able to continue. Check the next episode to see who.
