What a great trail. Not too small a group but just enough. any more would of been too many I think. Man I never knew this was right in my back yard!! like 20 minutes tops if we dont take the windy Frogey way. (just kiddin bro, thet road was fun, especially after the medium/core trail.) it was technically challenging and beautiful. the lunch spot was awesome. I could spend a whole weekend out there playing around on all the obsticles. I realized my tires are not the best on smooth rock. I was slidin this way and that and needed Frogeye to jump on my hood just to get traction in the right direction. I had a couple of dings as far as carnage goes. Front bumper bashed down on a big shelf and dinged up the bottom of it, just scratches and a little grindage but nothing serious or structural. Smashed the bottom of my winchline thimble and gouged the line up. time to cut and splice anyway. I replaced my antenna spring for a "heavy" pfft, that thing didnt last the first half of the trail the spring snapped right off it's base and left my antenna in the dirt. Hont buy stuff from truckstops if it isn;t a brand you know. and the bottom skids, sliders and rear bumper all got their share of bumps and dragging. Awesome group of folks as always. Thank you Chris for guiding us today. thank you Ollie for tailgunning and letting me borrow your handhald. and thank everyone else just for being there and making this a kick a$$ time!!
Pictures to follow.

Re: otay, carvacre, pancake rock, and little moab.

It was great to meet you Victor. So after your last month or so of excursions are you hooked?

Sorry I had to bail so quickly. Normally I'm the air supply for everyone but Ihad to get Russ and Drew back to their FJ. was airing up at Pio Pco and a guy aske if I would go into the campground and help him out. evidently hehad had a flat and no copressors or filling stations could take hm up to the 110lb of pressue he needed. I ended up airing p all for ofhi tires on his fifth wheel. Momma was none too happy when I didn't get home until 5:30. ;D

Looks like I missed out on a fun run. I would've been there but I didn't get to bed until 5:30 AM

Re: otay, carvacre, pancake rock, and little moab.

You would have if you moved a scooch to the right...but I had an instant flash back of my diff blowing up in Moab and I didn't want that happening to you.

There's alway's next time!

BIG TIME! I got rid of the bling-bling 20" rims, roll'n with the 16" and after blowning my rear diff in Moab, did the upgrade to 4:88 gears with the front ARB lockers...thanks again for all the heads up coaching/spotting...everyone becomes a better off highway driver with good advice and I've learned more today wheeling with the group!

Skids are next on the priority list and thanks for the spot since I just had the OEM skids.

I'm sure that Momma will realize that you're spreading good charma by helping people out and she'll come around.

Nice shots guys. This looks like where Froggy modded his exhaust last time.

Nope... but close to it. The spot where Froggo needed his exhaust amputated was the bypass to this ledge.
