    UPDATE link to the video:

    Dennis in his sleeper straight axle conversion Toyota was definately the star player this trip. Locked front and rear with good suspension, he stealthily walked up everything with ease. those of us without both ends locked struggled some of the ledges.

    UPDATE: link to the pics!

    Great run, can't wait to go back. Almost rolled!!!


    A few of us locals are heading up for a run on Sunday. The invitation is extended to everyone close. Just a reminder!

    From San Diego:

    Take I-15 north to Scripps Poway Parkway east

    Follow until it ends at Highway 67 turn left (north)

    You will enter into Main Street in Ramona (this becomes Hwy 78 east). This is a good spot to eat and fuel-up.
    Follow Hwy 78 east into Santa Ysabel and turn left (north) on Hwy 79 towards Warner Springs.
    You will travel for about 12 miles until you reach San Ignacio Rd (just before you reach the gas station). Turn right (east).
    Follow this road until you enter the reservation and the main gate.

    78 from Escondido to Ramona is closed so take Highland Valley Road or route through Valley Center, up Palomar Mountain to 79 past lake Henshaw.

    There you will stop and pay the fee. $15/day $20/overnight. There is water and porta-potties in the campground itself. The person at the gate will provide you with a map of the trails.

    Lets meet there at the gate around 10am, we can start running the trails at 10:30 or so. Its not too big of a park so late comers can still catch up.

    So do I, its a small group here and would benifit from a few more trucks.

    This was an odd outing for me, first since the conversion. the things I though it would walk up, it didn't and the things I thought were unpassible, it walked right up... go fig!

    Super sweet video! And that Yota (might get in trouble here!) ROCKED! That thing was smashing all sorts of obstacles! Too cool! I can't wait to get out for some serious wheeling soon! /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    Great job on the video! (Like always!)

    You can say that again. I was disapointed on how a couple 2 foot ledges spaced the width of my wheelbase could stop me in my tracks without one, yet other things which looked too steep yet lacking in major potholes, it powered up easily. I'm still waiting for the Ox locker... if they ever release a D60 version /forums/images/icons/frown.gif

    The 57's made for an interesting time when the front end was in the air, spongy but predictable.

    mike,
    me an dale had a killer time. we made it home on the wasted wheel bearing, the spare axle's holding
    up fine, i found another set to get an replace the one i broke. i think the tire can be fixed.
    the side wall hole wasn't that big. nice having the C02 air tank along. dennis's little toy worked
    well as did the orange thing for this run. too bad we had too many broken parts to continue.
    but there's next time, eh?

    Your not kidding about that Toy, It really looked stock at first glance other than sitting a little higher. The straight conversion looked factory. A little closer look at the front third member and it brought about some suspicion that there might be more than meets the eye. He ran with the AC on up some of the hardest hills and made it look far too easy. Very impressive and stealth. That Jeep ran locked in the front but open in the back, made it up some crazy stuff too. Tim was his typical go getting self and made it up El Hill, even after blowing a rear tire half way up (can't exactly stop and fix it). A couple broken 1/2 ton u-joints on the front shafts and a small dent on the yota ended up being the only carnage . I'm aching to go back out!

    You bet theres next time! We missed a few other people in the group who showed up late and ran Appian Way (Old Mine trail), then up Dangerous Rd. A Wagoneer, CJ and a Land Rover would have made for some fun. Good to see you got the beast back, I didn't doubt you would. Where did you stop on the way out, we lost you on the main road???

    we turned right. went over to gas pump in Warner Springs for refreshment an petrol. then we stopped at KFC in Ramona for more refreshments an grub. mike was able limp home on his broke axle without damaging the shafts, but he did bugger up the seal. I've wheeled with 'yota more than a few times. the only thing that stops it are horse/power hill climbs. he's anxious to go back also as his damage was minimal. we got back to the ocean aboot 7 in the evening, if we kept going it woulda been a real short night or a long Monday!

    Ahh, we turned left on 79. We drove all the way to the store at Lake Henshaw looking for you! Hahah. good to hear Mike got back with just a seal damaged, having that front locker and no hubs to unlock must have really banged up the shafts at the joint. Wow, 7pm? We were back near 5:30. I filled up with gas in San Marcos before we left, the whole trip only used a little under 3/4 of a tank. Next time we go and play near you all! Inkopah, Alpine or the Border? Give Dennis the URL to the video and tell him we'd love to have him back out, but hes got to run with the front unlocked so we can get some action shots on him (handicap?, lol). Toys aren't supposed to wheel that well!!!
