Sunday Carnage Canyon.
 
It was an epic adventure to be sure. The trail lived up to its name, but we had a blast!

Only got a few pics because I wanted to ride, which didn't leave a lot of time for picture grabbing.

Trail is maybe 1 mile long. Started at 8:30, got off at 6.

Here are a few pics I got from around the V-notch obstacle.

The approach:

We rode the cage a lot.

Here we found out that bead lock bolts can dig into the rock enough to keep you from rolling over.

I stayed in because it was too close to going over and I didn't feel like getting crushed while exiting.

There is a sign at the entrance indicating 39" tires minimum. They are. We hung up all over the place on 40's. I sense a set of 42's in UB's future.

Great pics....the one of Issac hanging on in the passenger seat all by himself is priceless!

:confused: Say whaaaaat? :dunno:

LOL Tom!

I think there are a few things a head of the new tires. Like a fix for the carb, and some repair work.

Pretty cool guys. Did UB let you drive?

AxleIke 07-27-2010 12:30 PM

no, and I wouldn't have even if he'd offered. I don't like driving other people's stuff, as I can't afford to fix it if I break it.

That trail is fun for all: driver, spectator, passenger. I loved every minute of it.
