Had a blast. It was worth the trip to watch Perry in the washes on Wipe Out hill trail. Can't wait for his pics. We tore down sat. after wipe out and headed East. When we came across Vail about 10:30 sat night I was feeling for the rumble strip the snow was so fast. Pretty spooky for a guy from 400feet. Think I might have had a hallucination or 2 somewhere in Kansas. Made it back in 20:15, 1296 miles from BFE to home.

My friend Dan and I had a great time. We left at 7:30 am Sunday and missed the real snow and stuff on the passes.

In 4 days of wheelin’ we ran – Hells Revenge (including the Gate) and Behind the Rocks, Cliff hanger and BFE night run, AREA BFE difficult and Metal Masher and the Golden Spike. So the JadeRunner is showing some serious trail scars but no breakage. I have a problem with my front ARB locker shooting fluid out the breather. The front locker was sure nice to have when it worked.

Area BFE was great. I enjoyed wheelln’ the BFE trails. Especially, when you can go all over following various two tracks. But, those trails can beat your rig up with all the loose rocks. It made me want to get back to the Utah slickrock trails that make Moab so unique.

Can't see the vids from work, but look forward to seeing it tonight. Brian thanks for the great documentation!

I'm always doing Wipeout Hill like that from now on.. I spotted the SWB line and the top of the LWB line, Neil did a great job on spotting the lower section of the LWB line, this is illustrated very well by that first pic of Red Chili above. We had 2 trucks at a time on that obstacle, I think we got all 18 down in about 25 minutes, once the mad house of the Jeeps, other vehicles, ATV's, motorcycles, and golf carts subsided..

I have never seen wipeout hill that busy!! Oddly enough as soon as we broke not a single vehicle went by.... You guys at the front of the pack missed the awesome repair party we had with Perry! We had tarps ready this time, no repeats of last year in the rain!

Good times..... Glad you made it home.

Can't wait to see the rest of the pics (Perry's and everyone else's).

The one thing we felt could seriously damage the BFE event was the weather, and I'll be damned if that wasn't the coldest, wettest, windiest, and snowiest Moab I've ever seen that time of year. But despite the weather, I didn't talk to one person that wasn't smiling and having a blast the whole time.

Default one of my favorites from Wipeout Hill

Wow. this was my first CM. I'm blown away with this incredible event. I took about 600 pics and going through them now. Here's one of my favorites from the lunch spot on Wipeout Hill.

"hmmmmm....if stare at this hard enough, maybe it'll fly into my mouth"
