Good times. Took all day as expected. We had 8 rigs.

Myself and my wife Ang who drove the Buggy
Toby in his XJ
Tyler in his XJ
Brian in his Toyota Buggy
Eddie in a Toyota truck
Robert in a tracker
Steve with both arms and his first wheeling trip in his new xtera
Tim in his new quad cab Dode 3500 dually

Tim got the dually all the way to the carwash then we had to do a creative 3 point turn, some rear burns and careful spotting. Really impressive to get a rig that big that far in.
I said gotta go i hear someone stealing my rig... so I hop in as passenger in my rig and Toby drives it through the first car wash, then we swapped drivers and I drove the second deeper carwash. We both got wet and put the exhaust completely under water.

We continued on to the step and got some video, let the wife drivers give it a shot and started heading back.
The group got split up and found them driving up the was. Brian and Eddie were stopped at a fallen tree, Robert needed to be winched over a rock he was hung up on and Tyler had his wheel off doing a tire change.

We got back in line and back on the road, I drove fast and got some good shock tuning adjustments done. We stopped several time to collect the whole group. We get back to the trail head in the dark and see steve still waiting for us. 1.5 hrs he waited from the was mishaps. Were counting rigs and dont see Toby. We were about to head back out to look for him but I called and he took some other exit and was already almost home. A quick 50 point turn and we had the motorhome and trailer out of the trail parking lot.

My harddrive is full but I have some video I can post up later.

This was a fun trip. My parents are out from Boston visiting, so I brought my dad along for his first 'wheeling trip' - he had a great time. And I've got a full set of skid-plates on order as a result of this trip :laughing: I'm looking forward to the next outting.
