Kim was great to run a couple trails with you again, and thank you again for showing those boys in their 40's how to roll down that roller coaster on BTR..

wow what a trip, I'll get a few pictures up tonight, but I haven't even unpacked yet.

edit: and that's a keeper Shawn, send us the high res file please!

Yep, when the wind came up and the sky darkened, hard won experience made the call. Which turned out to not be needed, but it was nice with the sun that followed.

I didn't take many, but here are a few.

The first one Woody took of me on Pritchett. It's the kind of day I had...



High Dive/Upchuck (BTR)







This guy ate his seatcover...














Brook's way-cool buggy. He made this...

I forgot I had my camera until the last day...here are a few I took from Moab Rim. That was the first time I ran that trail and it was a good time. I stood my truck on its nose coming off of Devils Crack I think it is...still not sure how but aside from some electrical issues we all had fun

Think I might have had a hallucination or 2 somewhere in Kansas. Made it back in 20:15, 1296 miles from BFE to home.
Glad you enjoyed that as much as I did. Bummed though that I couldnt go back to the wash at the begining of the trail. Now that's fun!. Start working on pics tonight.

That's a funny pic Shawn

What did you drive out there? The 60 or the 40?

I don't. At all. It's why I have them darn axles. As I've been known to tell my kid, "when you screw up, you suffer". Actually, this was kind of a freebie, since I'm resting on the slider. Just to salvage some bit of pride here, I was able to back out of this and move my right a bit to get up this thing. On the downside, this was a BYPASS (to Rock Pile).

You, too, man!! I really appreciated your's and Brook's help. It took me a couple of days to get my wheelin' legs under me.
