Um, no.

That shackle was about 2 to 3 times the size of the one I have.

After a nice 3:30am wake up call on Saturday I headed to Phoenix to meet up with who ever was coming. Unfortunately, only one person showed up SOAZtim from Yotatech. We hung around for a bit then left. SOAZtim photos can be found here - http://www.soaztim.com/

Day 1:

The drive up to Sedona was filled with rain and lots of it. Reminded me of Missouri with the amount of rain minus the thunder/lighting, hail and tornado watches. We got luckly and by the time we got to Sedano the rain had let me, just windy:

Way up:


Broken Arrow. There was no pink jeeps on the trail when we were there. I could see where a large group would have problems there are not very many pull offs:
It was to muddy and the rocks were pretty grippie despite the rain.





Steps at Broken Arrow (wasn't that bad):




Soliders pass is the only trail we meet a pink jeep on. As we were living someone in a new landcruiser (all decked up) tried to enter the trail but after seeing the ledge/obstacle he backed off the trail and parked :



Seven Scared pools at Soliders Pass:


That foam stuff was weird.


Oak Creek Homestead. It's easy to miss the trailhead on this. It's was fun trail until my rear end slid out and I slid off a ledge with my wheels turned all
the way to the right. My wheels were straight but my steering wheel was a little off, after the drop (um, opps).



The self road down and the old homestead:


I don't think were crossing this portion of the trail:


Back up the shelf road to the second enterance/exit. Well, maybe (see first post)





Camp for the night and it was a cold one in the 20's. Ran across a neat little waterfall:



Camp for one:

Creek right behind camp (well not anymore)


Day 2:

Leaving camp:




Meet up with Jon and Jamie from this board and ran Broken Arrow again. I ended up leading this one. It was a good thing we ran it when we did because as we were leaving a number of pink jeeps were entering the trail. Meet one cool pink jeep guide though, who was surpised that we made the trail.
You can tell the difference in the photos from Saturday and Sunday.






Steps again. For me they were alot easier after running them before.



Group shot:


Overall, it was a great time and nice to great away from Yuma. No one got hurt and the vehicles preform fine (except for me). Next, time I'm up that way I'll be trying some more trails (Smiley Rock, Mingus Mountain) or mountain bike, which ever comes first .You'll more than likely see me on trails/runs similar to these.
Thanks for those who came and for putting up with a me.

By Sunday the water level had gone down in a few areas but still raging in others.

Getting all the red off was a pain this morning and there's still more to go. It's not very often that you find/see red mud in Yuma. It's normaly brown.

They sell t-shirts dyed with that red mud, so you should have left it on as it could have been worth something. Even more jeeps came into broken arrow after you left. It looked like some kind of invasion.

Ya, I ran into a number of them when I left. I had to back up twice and had one pull over to let me pass. I can see how they would be a pain.

Maybe I should go down there with a box of white shirts and run them over. A cool tire track shirt could go for high dollars.

Yeah thanks for the pictures Jon. Half of them have my truck in them, perhaps I should hire you as my personal photographer.

*John*.... haha.... Yeah no prob. guys, sorry it took me FOREVER to get them on here, I'm in a transition process into my new place still.. (4 months) The meet and greet went pretty well. We're slowly comin' along up here in N. AZ...

The second to last photo of the steps do them justice.
