Axle Alley 7.22.06

Kirk, Grumpy and I Ran Axle Alley this past Saturday. I had a blast introducing my Lil' Brother in-law to rockcrawling. Grumpy got to test his new toy with a VERY LARGE SMILE on his face (he's not so Grumpy anymore) and I got to test out my new shoes. The trail lived up to it's reputation for carnage......Grump sliced a tire before we even got to the first waterfall......Kirk sliced a tire and lost a bead on the first waterfall and I got to experience the last 1/4 of the trail with no power steering!


To quote my Lil' Brother in-law..."Holly crap!........we're going to go that way?"






I Break for Rocks.

I really want to go wheeling, But I have been a puss this summer as far as the heat goes. I dunno if it's the fact that it has been a lot hotter then normal. Or if I have just lived here to long and I'm starting to hate it. Anyway, Is it October yet? Highs in the 70's kick ass!

It really wasn't too bad Saturday.........it didn't get unbareable until we got to the exit........it didn't help much that by that point I was exhausted from trying to "Popeye" the trail with no power steering!!!

I was with Yogi on the "night run from hell" at azrocks when his PS pump took a shit. That is why I now carry a spare pump.
