Sevenmile and Kelly Flats - 9/11 weekend

Yet another great, relaxing weekend in the mountains! Had some family from out of town and they thoroughly enjoyed the time out. Here are some pics:

Sevenmile on Friday afternoon:







Mean Jean's first time out behind the wheel of the whale.











Kelly Flats on Saturday:





Drew's new rig did great!





Taylor coming up









Mike with his new gears and lockers!

















Jay's epic run up the chutes!







No shots of the giant wheel stand but this is right after the truck crested the right line.







The Whale's unsuccessful run up the chutes. Didn't want to hurt the good side of the rig!





Mike





Tired pups

Looks like a good time, sorry I missed out. Finally got my rig back together and drove it on Saturday. Didn't feel right about making the inaugural run a 2 hour drive to run a trail and back without putting a few miles on it locally.

Drove great! Didn't go far but drove around for 30 minutes probably. It sits REAL tall in the front as i figured it would. Hopefully it will settle and match the rear a little better. May go for a run next weekend if anyone is interested.

I just did the math. It is, in fact, cheaper to go out drinking every weekend than it would be for me to pay for a legitimate therapist. What are you doing next Friday night?

It can be hard to keep a rig clean taking that bottom line through the chutes. I can't imagine the full size whale!

Troy managed it in his 2nd gen runner a few years back. What you don't see in the vid is how he ripped his driver side mirror off on that nasty rock!

I love it! It's really nice to just ease through stuff I've had to bump before (pretty sure the dog liked not being thrown all over the place too).

I pussed out on the chutes; just nosed up to the bottom and started to put tires on the left side but wasn't ready to commit to the possibility of major body damage if I slipped off that wall.
