    Awesome photos!! Thanks for sharing. I had also heard from some local guys that the weather turned pretty bad. Made it a not quite as fun fest as it could have been. Anyway, hlad you were able to make it. Who knows, you could always go back in Oct for Blazer Bash :grin:

    Cool. Awesome video. So close, yet so far. How'd you find your gearing on the rocks?

    No issues with the gearing.
    Robin believes that if the nitrous would have been set up, he would have had enough wheel speed to make it. Maybe next time.

    It's beautiful country. Very different from ours

    What day did you roll? I was in the group following you guys around hells revenge on wednesday then our blue toyota cruiser broke a rear pinion and had to manage out in front drive and pull it up the steep ones with the black dodge cummins. Anyway, it was awesome watching you guys in devils gate and such. Hope to be down again for blazer bach with my truck this time

    edit: just read your web page, You must have rolled the same time we were tearing the rear end out of the cruiser to get the pinion out. We caught up with everyone at escalader right as Eager Beaver rolled so Bill helped cover up the oil on the trail with dirt when we got there.

    Same day. We did hell's gate, then off to the hot tub and then the escalator. We didn't do the escalator cause we had a hard time seeing through the windshield. The truck was covered in that slimy , grease goop. Took a few hours to clean it up the next day

    That is some nasty stuff in the bottom of that tub. Therobzilla rolled in there during Blazer Bash last year. It was filled with glass, oil, sludge, ATF, mud, water, and only God knows what else.

    Is that where the line is for the hottub? When I was there the line seemed to be a little farther right. :dunno:

    Moab is a cool place to wheel. Got some nasty heights though that bother me.

    What area was the crawling competition in? Is that out by the airport by proving grounds?

    Harley

    P.S. Escalator is pretty easy as long as you get the right line. How did the Jeep roll in there?

    I also read that that muck was covering your eyes while you were waiting to be taken out of your harness. I never would have thought to check the level of the water, but what if it were deep enough to cover your mouth and nose! Could have been tragic.

    Glad you were not harmed in any way :)

    I watched a couple rigs try and it was touching hubs so musta been pretty deep. Never think about it really till I guess you are hanging in it. I'll remember that for next time though.

    I saw your rig, whiteknight, about Tuesday sitting by the course there on top of Upper Helldorado....wished I'd have stopped and looked for ya, but I wasn't driving. :(

    My boy rolled his 'Zuk is one of the hot tubs that week also. Everything is just a confused blur, I don't know what days where what trials and what shiat was called....all blends into one. Prichett Canyon was AWESOME, though.

    Maybe next year I'll run into ya, bro.
