    It was a great time with you guys. Alot of fun and alot of nice people! Hope to do it again soon. Our kids had a blast too and passed out right when we hit the highway. They were overdue for the naps so it was perfect timing.

    The trail was great and we hit it at the perfect time and missed the very large groups on the way up. Was a great day!

    He's good to go. Katie checked it out when she got service and the berry was not poisonous.

    Bent's truck looked good. So did Mike and Trae's rides. It was a nice smooth day.

    Glad to hear that, and also thank you.

    Clean run was right, the only tom foolery had was that which was intended. Other than the hiker getting antennae whipped!

    Nice pics....looks like a fun trail. I've actually never done that one. Looks like a good one to bring the wife and kids on.

    @THE TURD rig looks good on the black rims

    @bent72 glad you didn't have rear driveshaft issues like last time

    @Tnsejed I really want to wheel with you one day to crawl around your rig...it's really cool!

    I really wish I would have seen that. It must have hurt like hell.

    Looks like it was just about the right group size. Enough to have fun, not enough to slow everyone down.

    That some seriously beautiful country there. Looks like you were up quite high. What altitude was that?

    Sorry I missed it. One of my favorite "nice day for a drive" trails.

    Is the line going up, to the left of the v-notch too easy now? Looks like it has been pulled down. I always went up it. Almost did a nose flip going down once.

    The bottom has been rolled and washed out a bit. Mike and Todd both had to work at it. Trae and I bypassed it

    It is. Almost all of the trails in Colorado look like that. You have to pay attention to the trail, because the scenery can be distracting.
