    I guess we separated the men from the boys, and the men showed up for some wheelin' on China Wall today.

    We started by about 9AM, and we'd conquered all the obstacles by noon.

    I guess my first statement wasn't entirely true, Nicole drove the General all day today. Hey it was in honor of Valentine's Day!

    Since we finished up early; fred2mihi, B_to_C, and Nicole & I headed to another trail. ktedesco headed home so he could get some rest to kick some ass on duty tonight.

    Bald Mountain Gulch (FR300) was what the trail is called. Comes out just down the road from Old Chinaman's Gulch.

    fred2mihi took us to his boss's cool waterfall for his private fishing lake.

    fred2mihi did earn a new nickname to rival the fame of Bluebeard, "The Clutch"! Somebody had issues with stalling their truck dumping the clutch.:rolleyes: :haha:

    Looks like Nicole put you fools in your place. Outdone by a woman, poor Scott - how will you ever live it down. :rolleyes:







    :D Well maybe in a month or two or three or four I'll be ready, no I won't - yes I will - no new problems - yes fixed -no -yes .

    Oh hell, I give up.

    Sure is sad that the driveway queen will reign forever! Mine may be bought but at least I'm out putting new scratches on the blue thing. :tongue1: One thing for sure you'll never have to replace the driveway since the queen is protecting the concrete.:rolleyes:

    We figured it was the cold weather that scared you off. It was pretty chilly that morning.

    I may doing Lefthand/Carnage around the first weekend in March.


    All that for Valentine's Day, I should hope you do!

    Yep, didn't have enough money to get the truck registered/plates/etc. Hopefully I'll get that done this week. Then I'll just need nicer tires for wheelin'.

    Scott, thanks for posting up the pictures.

    I am glad I was able to make the trip. I had a great time getting back out there with you all. It sure felt good taking the K5 out again!!
