This one is still very controversial, and I can't even remember the details...except that Dan Yoder (pictured) sneakily handed his 'boneship' off with extreme stealth, attaching it to Ed's jeep.

    Dan Yoder rec'd the award because he had bent some front end steering bars on a run and was going to correct the problem when he got home. Off course he didn't; felt the trail fix was adequte. Next run same problem but a lot worse. This was his second fail to fix violation. Was somewhat embarresed about the award and wanted to get rid of it quickly and quietly.

      Ed gained the honor on the Rubicon. A small club group was on the trail and early on the members climbed a slab area all making it except the donkey. That was ED. On this little slab he had to go over; he just butted against it and gave it a little boost. Something gave in the drivetrain. Like a tsunami; it went from the front to the back. End result:broken front and rear axle. Rear driveline as well. Ed had extra axles but no rear driveline. What to do? A call to a shop in Sac and a driveline would be built in a couple hours. A call to Leon Curtis in Turlock was made. Yes he will drive to Sac; p/u the driveline and bring it to the Rubicon. Camp was set up on the slabs; Cheryl had a crockpot full of beans cooking in the jeep and a group meal was shared. Leon made it that night and the next day we were homeward bound.
