We arrived at Slickrock Campground today at 3pm. The roads were dry, blue skies and 75 degrees. There is no cotton on the trees and we may luck out and miss it completely this year. Weather is supposed to be great all week. Were in space 163. Hurry up and get here, stop by and see us.

We are in route from Hole in the Rock Rd. but nursing a wounded camper. Bent the axle a few days ago. The HWY is taking its toll fast on the rubber. Anyone know of a source in Moab for an on the shelf trailer axle in case I need to RV park mechanic?32805

PM'd you. Also, if anyone rolling through G.J. can stop at tractor supply, they have some depending on the size.

Responded.

We are in Green River for the night. Will coast into Moab tomorrow and have Chips Tire remount the tires and wear the opposite edges on the return to Durango.

So it think we will be OK. The trailer tows fine. No weird behavior just massive tire wear.

Straighten the axle! You need a bottle jack 1 or 2 chains and something rigid like a rr tie, i beam, 6x6, thick fence post.....etc. you will be shocked at how easy they are to bend/straighten!

I am back, reluctantly..

Could only go for a few days pre-CM, but got to do some fun stuff..Camp with the KTM biker team, drink MS margs, hurricane wind test the RTT at the Arches camp ground, hike to the double O arches with the family and the Nakman fam, and do a little Kokopelli sliver on the way home..

Not a bad set of activities in such a short time but miss the desert already..

Here is Nakman crossing the Delores, brave soul he is, I passed this time..

On Thursday we had 16 rigs on E Hill...I was gunning and the RHD 4Runner from Canada was having problems on the first ledge...unlocked and small tires probably not a great idea, we tried for awhile, then had to have someone back down to strap him up. Took a long time, a few older guys walked up from the parking lot to see what was taking us so long. We finally get him strapped up to the next area and found out he toasted a CV. He as able to crawl back down in 2WD to the parking lot and ride with someone else. Once we all got to the top, this came cruising up the hill like it was NO problem, looking at us like "what's the big deal??"

...awesome

Better than any of mine I have taken over the years from the same angle. The lighting was really friendly that day too. Hey Corbett, thanks for leading for us!!!

:cheers:

That rear bumper looks similar to my 4x4 Labs, except the spare is vertical instead of angled with the top closer to the rig than the bottom.

As Corbett was writing about Porcupine, here's my standard poser shot on Kenny's climb on Fins & Things. Notice I didn't break anything :eek:

Rzeppa
05-05-2013, 06:33 PM
Group shot at the end of Fins & Things. I couldn't fit the whole group in (we had 12 rigs), but I think Jim Akers from FJC Magazine had a lens that did. I got a video of him doing Kenny's Climb that I need to upload to you tube for him.

Interesting mix of rigs on that trail, first time in a long time I had exactly zero 80 series. I had:

2 FJ40s
3 FJ60s
1 4Runner
6 FJ Cruisers

Interesting where the hardware demographics seem to be heading. Are all the 80 owners trading to FJCs?

Rzeppa
05-05-2013, 06:40 PM
I didn't take a whole lot of pictures this year. After the first few thousand of this rig or that rig coming over a rock they all kind of blend in. Here is Brent Adams from southern California. He was camped next to me at Slickrock. His buddy (and ours) Boyd Mickley never left So. Cal. due to an untraceable electrical gremlin in his 80 - he thought it might be either alt or fuseable link, but bottom line was he didn't make the trip out.

There was NO COTTON this year! Lots of caterpillars, but no cotton whatsoever. Hugh at Safari LTD. told me that the Western Slope has had an unusually cold spring.

Wednesday was an unofficial run to Hells with Cajunrock, Dan Kunz (Built GX470) from Atlanta and Briand (Green 40) from New Jersey

Since we were not on a CM run and paid our $5 to Sand Flats, we ran the hot tub. Did not do Hells Gate or Escalator, but a Jeep flopped over on Escalator just as we were passing. He found the hole so many others do.

Romer
05-05-2013, 09:32 PM
On Thursday I gunned Poison Spider and woody lead the run. Going up the waterfall a 99 4runner owned by Matt from Book Cliff Cruisers broke both lower control arms at the spot on the first picture. Fortunately, woody had a welder, so I took the rest of the group up and Treeroot and Ken Davidson came along and helped woody weld and repair. The did it quickly and they all caught up with us on the overlook

Wheeled with Dan Kunz and his GX470 a couple of days. It is a pretty nice rig. It's like a 100, except narrower

Romer
05-05-2013, 09:37 PM
On Friday, Daniel led Metal Masher and I gunned for him. Fun day. CruiserDan's wife Sara customized the paint job on her truck, cool :D

Romer
05-05-2013, 09:44 PM
On Saturday I led Fins. Hants was there so he jumped in and took a few turns at some of the obstacles. Small group, but one who had just got a stock LX450 and he did pretty good for a beginner

How do you break your lower control arms?

I think it was rear upper control arms. And, both of them broke at the same time!? They had to get creative to get it fixed on the trail. I wasn't on the run, but spoke to Matt shortly after. Sounds like Woody and Treeroot really helped get him going again with a sweet fix. :thumb:

It's crazy how good some of them turned out considering most of the shots were taken from inside the rig while moving..


Thanks for the good times.. See you next year...

The first time I took my wife on Moab Rim, she walked the entire first mile or so until we cleared the shelf road.

I'm confident that will be the case next time. This go around she just didn't know what she was getting into until the tire was off the ground!!! Yeeha

A small sampling of my pics:

Larry from Seattle work on the first obstacle past the creek on Cliffhanger.

That's me heading up the sandstone on Hells Revenge

We also went up to White Wash Sand Dunes on Wednesday to explore and play in the red sand.

In this shot Larry is approaching the Cliffhanger obstacle.

And he tries and tries to work his way over it. Although I made it over this back in 2011, none of us made it without taking a strap this year.

Here Pete (Antarctican) works on one of the final uphill features at the end of the run.

In this shot, I am working on the last bit of the climb at the end of the trail.

Getting all four down for some traction

And then popping out of the hole. If you look closely you will see daylight under both front tires. :rocker:

A view of Pete / Antarctican's FJ shows how Cliffhanger got its name.

A 2004 Tacoma being driven up the Cliffhanger obstacle. I am terrible with names but know this guy is a Rising Sun member. I have a bunch of great pics of it wheeling so it you want the pics message me and I will either mail them or give you an ftp link.

Same Tacoma coming down towards the last obstacle before the creek.

Same Tacoma again climbing out of the hole before proceeding to the many ledges at the end of the trail

A beautiful 40 series with a great view of Castle Valley behind as we head back on Porcupine Rim

Our trail leader on Metal Masher, Daniel, fits his 80 series through a notch on the way to a great view.

Ahhh, the steps that are the beginning of Cliffhanger. This trail gives you a taste of what it's made of as soon as you turn off of Kane Creek Road.
That's Pete from BC about to descend and Mark1Mac1 to the right of his Sandstorm. "Woody" Swearingan is on the left.

No reason to wait until next year. We would be up for a Moab trip in the early Fall, make it a 3 day weekend trip.
