    Or maybe I should say, "Fred and Russ are annihilated by Annihilator!" /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

    Anyway, this trail seriously kicked our butts... This is one of those trips that makes you think about finding a new hobby. Maybe something along the lines of stamp collecting, or bird watching...

    The trail report....

    Wow!

    You know sometimes you can run a trail with no trouble and the next time you dont make it at all. I've had the biggest trouble on "Milk Runs" and then have no trouble and really hard stuff. Next time you hit it might be cake!

    Nice Pics. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    Damm Russ it sounds like a weekend trip of mine a couple of weeks ago. We made it about 70FEET in about 7 hours. I broke a u-joint and it took out the inner and outer shafts on my 60 as for the rest of the group a drive shaft,dual t-case,60 rear axle,steering knuckle, and Tim's(Butch) winch rope. Lets just say it was a long day but a short trip ( 70 feet) /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif

    70 feet of trail...
    That is a little shorter than annihilator. It is two awsomely large and wicked waterfalls. You sorta pucker factor climb the edge of the first one, then as you are now way off the line, nose up towards a v-notch at the top of the second one. This is when it gets hard as your rear is still wating to finish the first waterfall. If everything goes right you are only on the easy line. Mind you this is a beyond tuff run, it goes from ugly to "what did I just break?" real quick.
