    Anyone intrested. Got some takers, but looking too see if anyone else is intrested. The Blazer failed emissions today, WTF, too much HC's but I think I will pass on saturday. Then off to get the tags renewed. But still looking to maybe head out on sunday.

    How about it Matt F, havent seen you post up in a while... /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Woodies wash is normally a 2 locker trail. It' a pretty good rocking trail, body damage going to happen if you don't have rocker guards for sure, but as long as the group does not get enormous, and you wheel smart, both Marv and I agree with some good spotting and taking the strap on occassion, you should be able to make it on this trail.

    If the group gets too big, then we will have to run a diffrent trail.

    Rob

    PS: This trail will give your driving style a real workout, along with your truck. Got a couple of waterfalls, and the entrance is really a major pucker factor, but it's a great trail to run, you make it through this trail in a full size with no breakage, and you've done some serious wheeling.

    Everyone that runs this trail must have tow points and a strap that is very handy, this is a diff grabbing trail and if you have not run this trail before, you will get hung on your diff's, and there is no way around it..... /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    Hey Mr. Bolts, glad to see you are going to make it:).

    You know Matt the only reason I give you so much #hit, it cause I like you /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif.

    I have no reservation in my mind that you can do this trail. Just glad you are going to make it out. Always nice to see more guys wheeling. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    It's going to be kinda tricky to get out there, my tags are expired and the DPS guy in Florence has got a hard on for me.

    Been trying to get a 3 day permit from AZDOT online, but just my luck, the system is down and I can't get a permit. The blazer passed emmissions today, but the tag office is closed. WTF.........

    See you in the AM.

    Rob

    Whew.... /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    Thanks to all who made this trip!... I had fun even though I didn't bring the right equipment./forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    I thought it was just a 4wd trip - but apparently Rob brought guns /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif.... Cuz every time he got behind the wheel, I kept hearing a loud "bang".... /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif
