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?

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. :rolleyes:

No carnage, had some minor issues to repair in camp but did all teh hard lines and didn't take the cable..... or rope or the strap.

Im jealous dude, Ive run most of those trails in my bronco and there just is any other wheeling like it! I cant wait to get back there in the toy this year. I cant seem to get a trip together with my buddies so fuck em! I might just head up there by myself if I have too.
