SEMA 2016

- Our trip to SEMA begins with a brief stop over to catch up with friends in Hawaii for a couple days of wheeling.
- Eli in his beautiful Toyota Tacoma giving his best shot on "Initiator" at Peacock flats
- Jesse's tough 4 Runner parked up after clearing the rock obstacle on "Initiator"
- Eli wheels his truck hard, this time a little too hard as he fell into one of the many crevace obstacles.
- It's good to see pretty trucks being wheeled to their full potential!
- Nothing like team work to make a recovery go smoothly...
- Back on all 4s after a quick recovery
- aaand straight into the next hole! Eli was thankful of the bars on the truck this time.
- Barwork is worth its weight some days!
- Bit of setting up winch lines and pulley blocks managed to get Eli out with no damage... Teamwork is the way to go.
- It is always good to stop and enjoy the view in the beautiful locations that we can get to when out wheeling!
- Oahu, Hawaii is a stunning place to wheel
- Peacock flats is just stunning!
- End of the day park up
- Peacock Flats over looking Yokohama Bay on Oahu is the place to be for great wheeling and amazing scenery.
- Day 2 of our Trip to SEMA was spent wheeling again at another location in Hawaii called "The Valley"
- This feels just like being at home in New Zealand
- Jeeps heading into the battlefiedl
- Toyota country for sure!
- If you have a Toyota problem, Hawaii is the place for you...
- Uncle Larry having a laugh after Kyle had a bit of a slip down the hill, this is what wheeling is about... Having fun with your wheeling family.
- Jesse from Three Hills Offroad looked after as well as usual!
- Sometimes too much Skinny pedal hurts!
- Ouch! At least it looked good on camera haha
- Low pressures and no beadlocks = De-bead!
