Well Sdecurti has also elected to fall on his own sword. (seriously what the fawk are we all thinking ) So upon his request we put together a little desert trip. Actually he just told us to get our rigs ready and the dates. He planned the trip and did all the mapping. Not bad for a old guy. Now those of you that haven't had the pleasure of meeting Sdecurti ( Scotty) hes 30 going on 900 years old. He's into the finer things in life. Matlock, Ensure, Centrum Vitamins, Driving like a Sloth etc. The game plan was to Cruise out Thursday night after work camp off of Bessemer wake up check out KOH for a few then hit the pike to Laughlin where we hoped to arrive late afternoon to our luxurious Suite at the Colorado Belle. Hit a few jackpots at wheel of fortune, Cruise over to the classy bikinis for a refreshment and end the night at the losers lounge. Wake up at some time before noon hit mojave road home camp in barstow Saturday night. Sounds great rights... Well most of if went to as planned.... To Scotty!

We were going to just cruise by hammer town to show a few of the guys that hadn't seen it before. When we get a call over the radio from Mikey and Tommy. " the Bronco is down, ripped the shackle mount off the frame" What! We all headed back see what we can do to help.

We decide we would pull the shackle and let the leaf spring rest on the body and just limp the truck to Hammer down and hope to find a welder. So a few of us set out to hammer town again to find help... We get into hammer town. Walking through the racer camp area. I spotted the GFO trailer and remember he had raced the Every Man challenge the day before....luckily he was in his pit hanging out. Had a Flux core welder. Score! Called Mikey an Tommy they met me at the gate and went to work.

sooo where is the rest of the story?
right right....So... At hammer town we fired up the flux core and angle grinder at randy's pit and proceeded to weld up the mangled shackle hanger. He even had some spare tubing for to make new gussets.. Now it was about 2pm we were ready to leave hammer down off to giant rock

Just outside of giant rock I got a rear flat.... Huge gash in the side walll. We had full kill pit support i think we were back on the road in less than 10 mins. Few Highway miles into 29 palms for fuel.

it was a straight shot to laughlin. The sections of sand we drove across was insane. By far the softest sand I have ever driven it, had to keep the pedal to the metal. even had to grab 1st gear a few times. haha Tired and dusty. We all made it even the bronco some anti freeze at the looser's lounge
24930937055_22fd43d8c0_b.jpg
slithered down to the parking lot the next morning.

We topped up the tanks and hit the pike. We regrouped a few times before our first stop which was at balancing rock.

Now I'm sure by not some of you have asked wtf do these guys all work at trader joe's? At Scotty's request there was a dress code of Hawaiian shirts haha. So at the first stopping point Stevypop rolled out the itinerary for the day

Each vehicle was given a packet of 15 Challenges that would have to be done prior to the "finish line" which was the tressel bridge in Afton canyon. Stevyboy did a great job at tying the bachelor party wedding aspect into specific challenges.

write codog Scotts vows while moving through whoop section , write a poem about scott and leave it at the mailbox , Push truck in neutral the length of the school bus. Co driver had to propose to driver with out laughing on video, take tire off and roll around vehicle, etc, etc.... Everything had to be photo or video to be judged later by scott around the camp fire that night. The challenges could be done at any point. So you would be driving and see some one pulled off on one knee in the middle of nowhere or trying to make a trick beer pong shot haha it was pretty classic. Mark and I found our jump. or so I thought lol had him get to film, I spun the truck around and went back to get some speed to jump it. Hit it second pinned truck just droops out no are I hit the brakes and they go to the floor! I pump them a few times and truck slows to a stop then seems okay. I think wow that was strange. Just then someone radios in we are gunna pull up for lunch. So we proceed on to meet up with group. Brakes fine. We pulled up I start looking at the truck a little bit and see that the rear brake line T is puking brake fluid. Well shit there is the issue. The old man crawled under there and discovered that the flare had broken on the hard ine that went to the driver side. I gathered cutter and flaring tool out of my tools and he re-flared the line for me as I finished my sandwich.lol we bled the brakes and I was back in business !
