    Sunday: Pritchet Canyon. All went well, Everybody drove up Rocker Knocker, Tim from 4x4 Iron went up the rockpile.

    Monday: Upper and Lower Helldorado. Took My Blazer Through Upper.

    Tuesday: Rusty Nail. Tobey Rolled his Blazer.

    Wed. Golden Spike. Nothing serious. Watched a jeep roll over.

    I will have over 300 pics on line by the end of tomorrow.

    By far the worst trail was Upper Helldorado.

    Gotta go, My times up at the internet cafe in Moab.

    Yep. He's fine. He called just a couple of hours ago to give me an update on their adventure. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif He laid it over on its side on Rusty Nail. The damage is mostly cosmetic and he's still wheelin' the rest of the week. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Also, anyone know if they got TJ's truck up and out to Moab? I know they were working on a truck cab setup for his blazer and getting it to Moab. Just wondering. Thanks

    Yep, Harry you were correct, someone else said roll so thought I would add to it before it became Tobby rolled 17 times and caught on fire. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    Yep Matt did come close. What is funny is he was telling me I was too close to the edge to be getting on the throttle like that then he did the exact same thing except that he got onto 3 wheels doing it. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif He was about one body width from a 150' death plunge when he hit reverse and pulled out of it. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif Toby took out a piece of everything on the passenger side in his flop. The K-5 hit the ground HARD. He fell onto the slider and it stopped against a rock. Then the rock broke off and it dropped about 3' to contact the ground. We had him back up right in about 2 minutes though. That makes him the 3rd K-5 victim of Rusty Nail. Greg rolled. Nevada pushed his front axle back and ripped his T-case off. Toby flopped. Not a very K-5 friendly trail. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Well it's a good thing Matt didn't roll, because Toby would have thought Matt was trying to one-up him and he would have had to roll his. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Well it still lives. As a matter of fact I had to drive it home cause a friend lost his motor. All is ok other than cosmetic so we'll see what happens next.

    Also Storm Trooper lost his clutch on Gold Spike

    I don't know if anyone cares, but when I was in Denver talking to Shawn, he was really pissed because it had grooves in the cylinder walls casued by a foul up by the engine shop he went to.

    Here's a quote from an email -

    " My K5 isn't running as nice like I'd want it and now it
    leaks and has grooves in the damn cylinder walls. "

    I hope it didn't go either, that thing can haul! /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif
