We just got back from the Marlin Crawler Rubicon Roundup. Justin from Redline went with me and I was driving the Gecko, Joe Lorenzo (HeepEtr) and his dad were there in his 4Runner as well as a friend (Matt) and his wife Anna in their 40. It was a blast! The scenery is amazing, the trail is awesome and we had a great time camping along the way and attending the central event at Rubicon Springs. That went really well too, I was lucky and won the grand prize of a tranny rebuild by Marlin himself.
We took all of the hard lines on the trail and made every one except the Little Sluice. Joe made it through Little Sluice in his Runner with minor body damage but we gave up in the Gecko after we bent one of the front leaf springs. It was too early in the trail to risk damage that might keep us off of the rest of the trail.
Joe's dad was the official photographer and took a ton of pictures, once he emails them to me we'll get some posted up.
