I can't read all of that but, did you really hump a sheep?:flipoff1:
Nope, you're not the only one who read the whole thing, Jade. Talk about an epic trip (and trip report)! Igor has one that's long as well, but his is more pics and less text. Eventually if things slow down at work I will get some pics and maybe some video footage posted up from this trip too. Melanie rolled quite a lot of footage from 21 rd and Carnage Canyon (before dark anyway). Thanks for the pics & trip report, Shawn!Am I the only one that read the whole thing??? damn...
Did I'r use to big a der werds for ya der?OK, more pics, less reading...... I'm into pics......
....a LOT of help :suicide: I can hear it now...."I'm not going to scratch it, am I?" "Oooo.......Avatar pic, avatar pic!" :rofl:Great trip guys....... Summer '12 right here..... you colorado guys be prepared for me to hit you up for some help........
Next up was French Creek. This is where it becomes an all day shit show, as Doug like to put it
. next it was my turn (on Cleveland rock). I was determined to get this bitch. This was a monkey on my back and I wanted it. I pulled up to it, got on my line and gave her hell. I couldn’t crawl up, so I tried some throttle…nothing. Tried a different line…notta. Tried another line…no go. Tried my original line again….denied.
What an epic story... And I'm only now getting to the Big Bang! Oh I can't tell what joy this web wheeling brings me as I lie in bed while a machine moves my left leg from 0 degrees to 90 and back. Begin obnoxious sex toy jokes/It started to climb the V-notch and I knew I was in business. I stayed with it and got up it! Unassisted on my own! Get some! Cleavand Rock may have denied me the other day, but this bitch was mine!
Ok... HOLY crazy recovery SHIT!. Reserving this quote spot by Molly since copying and pasting is a BITCH on an iPAD
Your now non-mythical wife is an angel...Doug pulls John over a couple rocks and gets him to the hard left we’re going to have to get him around. Then Doug has to maneuver his truck to the next position by Austin Powers driving BACKWARDS up the trail.
It took 2 years in the making, 2 quarts of gear oil, 2 SPAL fans, 3 late nights on the trail, 1 EPIC recovery, and 4 new trailer tires but I finally did it. I wheeled the most scenic trail in Ouray, got to Telluride, visited 3 breweries, wheeled Holy Cross, made it through Carnage unassisted, got out of the heat for 2 weeks, finally hiked Pike’s Peak to Barr Camp, hiked in a new area in Santa Fe, and got to see some friends I haven’t seen in a while. Not exactly as planed, but still a great trip nonetheless. Can’t wait to go back and hit the stuff I missed.
Evidently the real Jeepguy had to type this message all by himself. Momma musta been passed out already and couldnt do it for ya.Did I'r use to big a der werds for ya der?
You only read pop-up books, don't you?
Yep.... that and places to camp. Not in a hurry to get in the raisin club.... want a few more years outta this cab..... cant be as cool as you guys and all your skills for dragging shit through a trail. I'm too old to think wrinkles are cool.....a LOT of help :suicide: I can hear it now...."I'm not going to scratch it, am I?" "Oooo.......Avatar pic, avatar pic!" :rofl:
Thanks Doug, I plan on hittin up the CO board when it gets a little closer.... I also plan on hittin up Carnage Canyon (at the end of our trip in case things go bad then all I gotta do is drag it home)...... Even though the local malls are my usual hangout I like to get a actual trail in now and then..... Most around here know that.....You'll want to stay away from Carnage canyon then. But Holy Cross should be on your must do list.
You all should post up on the CO board if/when you come out. We're always looking to go wheel with some out of state folk.
There's only 3 spots that slow you down.AWESOME WRITE UP AND STORY!
now, where the pics of where carnage canyon gets tough?
