Moab 5/29 - 6/2

Had a blast in Moab, good time camping and wheeling with some new people.

I'll post a highlight reel here, full set of pictures and vids are here.

Fins:







Ike and I posing at the bottom of Baby Lion's back:




Hell's Revenge:


































Video of Nate and Brown winching Trevor out: http://s615.photobucket.com/albums/t...t=MVI_0232.mp4


Behind the Rocks:







Video from High Dive (sorry about the angle on a couple of those, I thought they'd look better taller than wide, but wasn't thinking about not being able to rotate the video after the fact):

Nate
Brown
Trevor
Ike

And the only real trail break:




Pritchett:










Moab Rim:

Nate drove down to the big ledge of White Knuckle but didn't drop it. The rest of us parked just after the roller coaster and walked down to take a look.

To the first major obstacle, the one in this picture:

Given that left us with 4 rigs and 1 working winch, the collective decision was to call it a day on that trail.

Yeah, pritchett was no joke, and after that first climb it just kept getting harder.

Here's me coming up the first climb, Chewy Hill.

And congrats to Nate for making the featured rig in Petersons 4wd.
