    Your response is funny I don't remember anybody bagging on your ride. On your trip to bb I don't always agree with these guys but I've alos been stuck on a trail due to broke rigs. It sucks but when the broke truck isn't built and tested and puts the rest of the group super late because of owner neglect and not being prepared it's bs.

    Like the guy who lost his cross member bolts doing flat iron message. LOL

    We band together and fix it and keep going.

    Actually, TT4M's Blazer is a very capable rig. It's linked, locked, and much more stable than it looks.
    None of the breakages were due to neglect or being unprepared. Just bad luck.
    Once again, I enjoyed wheeling with the entire group, and hope to again in the future.

    Anybody ever do Hell's Gate backwards? I've had this dumb idea in my head lately. Seems it would be way more gnarly.

    Yeah, I don't think I would want to look down, going up is bad enough probably would flop.

    but the exit road would be epic
    I'd have to say getting down to Hell's Gate is scarier than going up it.

    So why not go down into it and turn around then come back out.
