If you can't find anyone else to run it with you, I will. Also check into the penrose trail system (liberty, freedom, patriot).
Thanks Doug. Definately will. May change our trip plans a bit. I wanna get it all in in 10-12 days.

That's how it's done. :cool: Dunno why we were way the hell up on the wall with the driver's tires after watching that video.
So the trick is to go high left and hope you dont slide into the rock on the left? :eek:

I'v seen vids of peeps strattling it but they might have been wider, also seen peeps falling in and crushing the A pillar area......:(

Where are you pics and vids John? I think I've been pretty patient waiting for them...... :p

there's a few lines to take thru there. I don't have the cage to slide along the rock taking the right line like Shawn. Besides, I'm a bit taller and don't think I could clear that angle.

I feared taking the high left line and taking out my a-pillar since I drive to/from trail and really need my glass.

I'd like to run this a few more times and figure out better lines thru the v-notch and squeeze for my truck. But it's kind of hard to find people to run with that I wouldn't slow down.

...and hope you don't flop over on your passenger side from going that high. At least the flop on the passenger side is soft, but slipping off and falling in on the driver's side will hit HARD. I got some new wrinkles from that one. :shiner:

Hence the name "Carnage Canyon" :missingto

Sorry Sy, working 7 days 14 to 16-hour days. No time for videos at the moment. Hang tight.

How many sheep did you miss, did you include all the goats?

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. :clap: 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. :kewl: Not exactly as planed, but still a great trip nonetheless. :thumbs: Can’t wait to go back and hit the stuff I missed. :driving:

Better late than never I suppose... Here is a vid with some pics from early in the trip from last year and some video footage from the lower to middle portion of 21 Road. Once it got technical and started raining when we got to the upper portion of the trail my videographer stayed in the truck. ;)

There's more footage to go through... mostly from Holy Cross and Carnage.

Soooo much footage of me spinning 1 front tire and not going anywhere. Time to throw a locker up front so I can join the "I break a CV on every trail I run" club :)

Yeah, I noticed that too. Been telling you that for a while, even in one of the vids from 21 rd you can hear me telling you to get a front locker already. :D But you keep wheeling it and having fun taking it out like it is, so why not put the cash into your '82 build? You even going to finish that little truck?
