So, this weekend we boondocked out at our site where we were setting up out bait station. We got on the side-by-side, got within 100 yards of the station, and had a small stream crossing. We got stuck, which isn't unusual, so we begin to winch out... the winch cable breaks. Now, THAT is unusual! So, DW and I walk out of the tundra to the road, flag down some nice folks, and get unstuck. With no winch cable, the station is too risky, so back to the campsite, flip on the genny and watch a movie, have fire and enjoy a picture perfect day. Denali was out, and the weather was perfect! That's the winch cable... So, Sunday rolls around, and time to go home. We go around a mud soft spot in the middle of the road, and then... The shoulder was so soft it completely blew out and pulled the trailer with it. A couple hours of winching with dual 8,000 lbs winches, and we got it back on the road with amazingly minor damage. The only casualty was the stairs, and I am fairly sure I can bend them back in place again. They still work, but they are very stiff. But, it could have been much worse. We got back on the road a few hours late but we got home. We're taking next weekend off.
