    The trail was pretty cool, we had 8 K5's including some guy who was in TTC this year [​IMG]. There was one really tight spot that is sorta famous for not likeing full-sizes, one pic shows Moneypit wedging through and another pic is a close up of my rockslider keeping the sheetmetal off the rock.
    A few more misc pics from various spots on the trail, I only took a few pics due to driving and shooting the shiet. Moneypits very nice girlfriend snapped 5 rolls of film and should have some great shots, I think she is going to 1-hour photo [​IMG]. Come awn, we want to see them!!

    Rims are 10" and the tires are 37x12.5 16" SSR
    A few people had some minor body damage and Tim (Butch) broke an axle u-joint, Moneypit exploded one of his emergancy brakes, all-in-all not a bad day considering the trail.

    Is everybody as tired today as I am? It was a good trail, but the rain on the way home with no top was not that fun.

    I thought I was wrong once,
    but I was mistaken

    Highlander, you probably wouldn't recognize the trail now. I was there last in '86 and couldn't believe how much the trail has changed since then. [​IMG] I drove a stock CJ7 as far as the bog just below the city back then. About the only way to get a stock CJ up there these days (without major body damage at least) would be via helicopter. [​IMG]

    Many thanks to Ken (WhiteWhomper) for letting me ride shotgun yesterday. I had a blast watching the finesse and carnage. Stephen Watson showed up in his badazz K5. OhMyGawd is that thing impressive! It has every trick in the book and then starts a few new chapters that weren't in the book. [​IMG]

    Tied? Not me, I just woke up from a 2 hr. nap......[​IMG]
    Had a <font color=red>GREAT TIME<font color=black> with you guys. It was awesome to finally me some of you. The spoters were the BEST! I only dented the knurf bar (yes I need to dump them and get the sliders) and some minor scrapping of the tree trimming bush wackers. Stephens truck was one bad boy but I think they all were some mighty fine machines. Tj, you really missed out[​IMG] And Steve, you missed the Baja ride home, Me and Moneypit where Blazing over Shrine pass and it didn't take a 1/8 of a tank. Moneypit and his wife stopped over for a buger then ran. Just wanted to say thanks, for a last minute show up like I was ( decided to go for it at 6:30 am) you all sure showed me a good time.
