Santa Miner's Revenge 3-8-08

Because everyone likes looking at pics I thought I'd post some of these up.
With my truck down I grabbed a seat with Westy and headed out to do a trail with them. Not one I would take mine on although Jon in his 3rd gen did amazingly. Just walked up everything!
We met up nice and early in Superior.


A few hours later we were at the trail head. Some yota troubles on the way to the meeting spot for one truck.

Same poor 4runner got a flat about a mile into the trail. Rock jumped up and got em!



Starting the hard stuff





Damn, something about a steep incline made this trucks tranny stop working... odd.
.




Steep incline. No more worky...


Making it look easy...
Wasn't this the spot we thought we'd be winching the ifs truck?



ah crap, whats that...

Are we going up that

doh

ah crap

pinned out, it would go further if it could.

and another one



Gloting!

There were a couple of unassuming spots that nearly flipped a couple trucks


Crikey

Pull em up!

overhang, oops

almost fell off. That was exciting



She was okay...



Video evidence

Santa

It was a lot of fun and I know that Elvota wants to get out there and do it.
Maybe Westy will want to head out there again too. He is a good trail leader.

Just on the other side of superior. Just next to the turn off for Battleaxe actually.
Its a really short trail too. Lots of time to spend on hanging out and making sure everyone makes it etc.

Sweet pics guys. You should go down the big fall and up the graveyard

It's between Kelvin/Kearny and Superior if you head south from Superior towards Winkleman(for you PHX guys). You actually turn off the highway onto Battleaxe Road.

Its a great trail. Lots to see and good variety of trail too. Three times out there now in the past few months, I've always went up the big falls. First time we all winched, but the last couple times I figured out how to drive the right fall. Good times...

Next time we might have to try going down. The one fall is very slick rock, it would be interesting I'm sure. Vehicles probably just slide down it the whole way.

I don't recommend driving down it unless you have huevos grandes. Long wheelbase would help though and don't use 800 million Tacama low, you gotta be able to roll out of it if you start sliding. You can have the person behind you winch you down and then for the last person someone prop themselves up the other little fall and snatch block off the cable up there and lower them down.

If anybody's interested, I might hit up Hackberry / Miner's Revenge on Saturday of AZRocks. That's if my power steering holds up until then.

bring it just in case. It's not just the pump tho, box needs to be rebuilt also. I plan on redoing everything and upgrading to PSC soon, just not going to get done before AZRocks.

Tuesday morning on the way to work, my return line decides to come off the steering box, and coat 90% of the engine bay with PS fluid. That was fun.

Yikes!......... Not really a surprise you'd want that early in the morning (or ever for that matter)
