Coming in HOT!!! Hahha...lots of good laughs on this one and amazing scenery. I'm glad the little 40 made the trip without rattling itself apart. Whew...pulled in at 9:30 pm last night. LONG day of driving but totally worth it. That's the first time I have hit 5th gear on a gravel road baja style. Nothing quite like coming over a crest, spying skid marks in the dirt and realizing you have to haul a top heavy 40 down to 20mph to hit the wash in about 60ft! Ouch...really makes me want to go to coils and pnue bumpstops.
