The run that hated XJ's

hanging tree trail 1 me 0 but in a way i'm glad i broke and turned around because it sounds like it was a long day on the trail for the others that kept going.

i left and went and watched some bikini parade in nephi

now i got a score to settle with this trail, and it will be settled before the fall fling!!

i didn't take many pics, since i wasn't there to long.

heading up the trail

the creek was flowing pretty good.

wet tires+rocks=many diffs getting hit.

the waterfall climb that i almost made, but ended my day.

the bypass wasn't much easier

kevin helping the water move faster

running a trail with a junk battery means jumper cables get used a lot

then cory decided to spit some water

can't really tell but cory was extremely close to rolling over here.

this was taken seconds before cory about ran me over, luckily he stopped inches from running me over. i would have been fine except i didn't know there was a 54" hole in my excape path.



more..........

Re: The run that hated XJ's

It was a good thing you had jumper cables Derek. I can't say I'm too sorry I missed this one but it is beautiful up there and looks kind of fun. Ten miles of wheeling can be a LOT!

ya ten miles of obstacle after obstacle after obstacle, hopefully cory will chime in. i only made it a couple miles in before i broke and turned around and headed back down.

but i think it took them 12 hours to finish and i think there were only 12 rigs maybe less
