What route did you take? It doesn't look like you did Italian Creek Road? That rocky spot near the creek seems to me to be on Taylor Pass, did you leave from Dorchester and go over Taylor Pass first?

Great pics, sorry I missed it...

And no, vapor locking on an FJ40 is not normal...you guys need to get that fixed

Wes, thanks for the great leadership on the run. I have been waiting to do this for a few years. Everyone was fun to be around and made me feel welcome with the group.

I will be uploading movies to YouTube, but at over 250 MB apiece, it may take a few days.

Hey Matt!

We left from Dorchester and did Taylor Pass first, then Pearl after lunch. Camped near the bottom of Pearl Saturday then Sunday morning headed out to Schofield, looped around Lead King Basin and back over Schofield into Crested Butte before heading home. Lots of seat time, but man the weather was perfect, the views spectacular and everyone had a great time! Those beers at the end of the day were great medicine for all of the trail dust though.

Yeah, had a great time on this run. Will definitely do it again, though I may bring the 40 next time. I can't believe I got the low rider through that trail almost completely unscathed! I had one rock move on me and jam up into the running board and pin me pretty good, but the board actually survived quite well. Can't even tell without crawling underneath. Sliders cometh!

I uploaded a video of the Taylor Creek crossing. It is not working yet, but should later on. I will upload the rest later this week, so keep the link handy.
