Nice. How’s about a shot with the awning deployed?

I haven't deployed it yet. I tried, but it's been windy as hell. 2 person job.

Haven't updated in a while. Nothing really new with the X. Just replacing things I break.

Last March, we took a trip to PawPaw, WV to explore Greenridge State Forrest. We planned on camping, but the weather was crappy so we found an AirBnB last minute. The whole area is so beautiful. No hard wheeling, but it was nice to explore.

Found a tree down, so we moved it.

Re: Things breaking...
No pics, but after ECXC last year, I broke the pinion in the rear. On blacktop. That sucked. The guy I took it to said that it wasn't set up right from the beginning. :bang:

Anyway, got that fixed and got a new double cardan driveshaft from East Coast Driveline in Long Island and was good to go.

Fast foward to January, I'm on my way to Rausch for Norther Exposure and my X starts vibrating like crazy and I can smell something burning. Look out the rear view mirror and see a cloud of smoke behind me. Fun. Get a tow home and found that my TC output bearing disintegrated. Awesome!

Bought a used TC to swap in and it was eating output shaft seals. Found out that this one had a ton of play in the shaft. FML. Finally got another TC installed and should be good to go now.

I don't mind breaking, but to do it 2x on blacktop really sucks!

Nice pics, Jeff, from your trip in March.

As for the TC pics - that does suck! Hopefully you've seen the last of that issue!
