Moab Turkey Takeover 2010. PICS!

Had a great time out there. It was a little cold, dipped down into the single digits once or twice but we stayed alive.
Had 3 trucks thursday and friday and had a fourth show friday night for saturdays wheelin.
The wheelers were: Stealth4X4 (John and Mel), AVSfreak (Jay), MrDoug (Doug), and myself.


While I was there we ran:
--Hells Revenge, everybody did Hells Gate as well.


--Cliffhanger


--The Trifecta which consists of: Poison Spider, Golden Spike, and Gold Bar Rim.


Apparently wednesday before I got there Jay and John were running Behind The Rocks and ended up on Pritchett. I believe there were two CV's lost that day.
The rest of the trip there wasn't much more carnage. There was my bumper breaking :roll: and Jay throwing another CV. But thats it. Nothing huge and everyone was able to make it home just fine.

We camped just off of the Behind The Rock trail. A little bit south of town but nestled away inside a small canyon. Great spot. Wish it was warmer though.
Had turkey dinner on thursday night which was awesome. Everything came out perfect! Turkey, Stuffing, Gravy, Baked potatoes, biscuits.. Everything!

Anyway.. on to the pics.



Down the trail from our campsite.


Thursday.. Hells Revenge and Hells Gate.





2- 98-00 Green single cabs on 35s.. What are the chances? LOL




John lining up for Hells Gate.


Jay making it look easy


The escalator. The obstacle that took out my rear bumper.



After I got up.. :lol:


Sunset.


Dinner



Friday on Cliffhanger:


The doublecab makes the ledge look small






Now thats some rear axle droop.


The view from our break spot






Approaching the main cliffhanger obstacle.


Getting white knuckeled just looking at this.


One of the Mountain Bikers dogs..


And sunset on the cliffs


Next day on The Trifecta





Jay


Doug




We made this optional line look pretty easy





Later on.. jay tried posing and almost flopped.






The golden crack!










Sunset that night



Thats all I got. Was a great time. Hope to go back next year.. when its warmer..
Heres the link to the album. Soon I'll upload them in full res and post that link..

We finally made it to a hotel with reliable internet access, back out in Alpine, CA to find this thread. Moab was a lot of fun for me, as always. Melanie, overall not so much even though we had some fun times mixed in there that put a smile on her face. Great to wheel with you guys and get in a little Moab fun. Technically we fit in 7 complete trails this trip, and a little section of an 8th and 9th by accident. Hahaha. I'll try to get to work on pics and vids, but it'll be a while.

Cheers!

they are a little bling for my taste, but like others have told me, with how dark everything else is on the truck a little bling for accent is nice besides, the price was right and they were exactly what i needed.

Sorry so slow getting to the footage guys. They are working me long hours through the weekend, and the reporting at the end of the day is killing my evenings in the hotel after work. Still doing homework from the day and I have to get up a 0415 in the morning. Drag.

Just a couple pics from camp the first morning we were in Moab (after the night it snowed)






Saw this on the drive out to Moab and it made me laugh... Who'd have thought BLM had a reefer division.

You and me both... the snow made it sketchy on some of the bigger downhill obstacles so we passed on High Dive and White Knuckle until a drier, less snowy day. But we still looked 'em over for a good long time.

If not for the snow, white knuckle didn't look that bad with my wheelbase that day. But it was pretty heavily stacked though. Unstacked it'd be something to contend with -- but I think, still do-able esp. with the long wheelbase. I can see why a guy in a heap would pass on it, or at least take a strap to the bumper.

His heap is longer than a std cab though, about what I am shooting for wheelbase wise with my truck.

It was completely unstacked when we rolled up on it though. If ya cannt do it unstacked you probably shouldnt be doing it in the first place.

What is Shawn's wheelbase after the stretch? Over 110? I hear you on that, BTW Ike. And like I said, its do-able without the stacked hwy given our long wheelbase. Who gives a crap about dropping in slow and dragging belly, frame and sliders. My concern on White Knuckle (aside from the snow limiting traction resulting in uncontrolled descent speed and uncontrolled line choice) would be dropping onto the front bumper due to the approach angle on a rig like mine instead of hitting rubber at the bottom and rolling out of it. Hit hard enough on that front bumper that you can't roll out, and unless its perfectly square and just sits there, the whole ass end could drop sideways and start a flop/roll pretty easily sitting on that steep angle. Looking at it the day I was out there, I was expecting to grind bumper pretty hard if it weren't stacked. The question is whether it'd rub off or just plow in. Hard to say, honestly with my truck. If it did plow in hard, then it'd be a matter of whether it were nicely squared up or not. It's a great obstacle, and a fun challenge.

Really, I was surprised you guys passed on it when it was dry. Shawn's Jeep is pretty well built for obstacles like that, esp given the stretch, nice long stinger, etc. And with your tall 35s and long wheelbase, I can see why you wish you'd have run it. You'll get another chance. BTR is a fun trail. I'll be running it again for sure.
