Moab run May 08

Finally got done uploading crap from Day one...... Fins and Things, Baby Lionsback and Tater Salad Hill was our warmup run...... What a blast.

The HCR boys took me on alot of fun trails this week and made it the best week of wheelin ever. Now if I could just figure out how to move there?



Here is what we got from day one.

Day 2 we did Metal Masher. it took us a while to find the start of the trail but once we did it was well worth it. Widowmaker was teh highlight of this trail.

Day 3 had teh arrival of some more friends from AZ.

We ran Hells Revenge for them to warm up on. BUT it was great timing as we ran the trail right before rains came so we were able to play in teh hot tubs and Escalator while still dry.

Day 4 brought about a mellow cruise and scenic run in search of the secret spire. No real challenges, but scenery that was well worth it.

Here's teh stuff we got from day 5 on Steel Bender which we ran backwards so we could climb the major obstacles vs. coming down them. The highlight here was a climb that had a deep revine behind it if things went wrong. Notice teh Rhinos didn't fair so well.

Glad you made it back in one piece Sy. I told you that you wouldn't break there! (or did you? )

BTW, none of those links work for me?

Awesome Sy, looks like a sweet trip. I might have my rig up at the cabin in Pinedale(not Pinetop) on 4th of July weekend, might have to make it over to the Cracks if you're gonna be there and meet some of those guys.
