I will have to think about the route for next year. we had 2 different camp spots and 2 long days. It was great to mix it up this year.

In your opinion is this run OK for a trailer? I hope to be pulling one by next year this time. If I am it will be rolling on 35's with lots of clearance.

IMO i think you would be alright just might upset any oncoming traffic.

well - with my long arse wheelbase, I would say it would be sketchy in a couple of places, mainly from an off-camber, non-driven axle, slip over the edge perspective.

There were several spots that were real sketchy for me getting my big tail around spots that were shelves.

It would probably be ok if you had seat time with the trailer. Taylor is getting tougher in spots. There are a couple tricky spots on pearl with a double fall line on the Aspen side. It would be preferable if you have been over schofield to know the trail before you pulled a trailer on it.

Also this was unique change to the normal route. I can't guarantee next year will be the same route.

Looks like a great trip, we were there about 5 weeks earlier and had some snow to deal with. It is a beautiful area that I would like to explore some more when I have the time.

Luke UB asked who is the Montero owner it looks great.
