    Here are some links to videos I put together for a recent run on a trail called 21 Road. It's just north of Grand Junction, CO.

    Actually INTERCEPTOR didn't do much body damage. He has the big old wide tires to act as rubber baby bumpers. :D

    First, that is the PERFECT song for BO! It was awesome!

    Second, I really like Fred's front bumper. You guys do that at home?

    Third, That looked like a blast. Might just be worth the price in gas to drive out there. Anybody know how much Bo spent on gas driving out there?

    Dad's bumper was cut like that by the guy that owned the truck before fwdjunky. It's the one that inspired me to cut mine. Just takes some time and cut-off wheels.

    I spent about $70 in gas. :D

    Never done that one. Black Bear Pass kinda makes me nervous, especially in a fullsize. I've heard plenty of stories about that trail.

    That part of the state is really beautiful though. They call the area around Ouray the "Swiss Alps of the Rockies."

    Oatsk5's dad was the best spotter. And he wore those white and green gloves, it was hard to miss his directions. :D

    I spent about 185.00 in fuel not bad I thought. Oatsk5's Dad is the best spotter I have ever had he can spot for me anytime.

    $185, eh? I'm about another 140 miles away round trip.

    hmmmm.....

    Maybe in the S-10. I think the K10 would kill me.




    I hate this whole "investing to go wheeling" crap.

    That's why I plan my trips so far out, so I can bugdet the gas.

    That $70 was driving the Pontiac, 30mpg. :D :whistle:

    Yeah, I figured it was something other than the General.

    I would be floored if it only spent $70 to GJ and back! :eek1: :haha:

    So any one up to trying Black Bear Pass Road in late June/ 1st week of July 2007? I am going to hit Ouray and Animas Forks, Lake City. Then head to Mohab and all the N.Ps in lower Utah.
    But really need a spotter on BBPR....:crazy:

    We may be in that area. I actually live about as far away from that area as possible; it's in the opposite corner of the state. However my parents and sister live in Junction and Delta. It just so happens my sister's birthday is July 4th, so I may be over there around Independence Day.

    I could probably spot that trail because I'd rather walk it than drive it. :crazy:

    Post up in the Rocky Mountain Region when your trip is about a month out. :deal:
