Good day, good trail, good group, good lunch.

I was busy being the tackle anything guy, so here are the 2 pics I snapped. Post 'em up.

Thanks Ryan it was good meeting you, and Mike too. You guys dominated the obstacles we went up, and I think Phil should have some good shots of you daring your way up that one part.

I'll post the few pics that I took soon.

Overall the trail seemed in really good shape. As we expected there were a good handful of spots that offered additional "challenges" if you chose to take them, some easier then others. A couple we all opted out of. There was definitely a little bit for everyone. The end of the trail was quite graded down, no crazzy final boulder to go over like we had heard it must have been removed. The trail was pretty heavily traveled, we had to find room to pull over and let ATVs and other vehicles pass a decent amount.

Pretty awesome how the scenery changed and before we knew it we were in CK driving right past The Mill which was really fun to visit. I personally think a stock 4x4 would be fine just should be a little careful in a couple spots - a 2wd with a little lift and offroad tires would probably be fine too. Definitely worth the trip if you haven't done it though. Took us about 5 hours to get all the way up, stopping for breaks, crawling along and working our way through the trickier routes we tried.

Thanks again guys

All of that had bypasses. There was one spot for sure (maybe a couple others) that would have been questionable in a stock 2wd. 4x4 and careful driving would be a piece of cake. The more mods and experience leads to trying and completing harder stuff. About 3/4 of the length of my right slider got USED.

Here is the GPS Track from highway to highway.

And get better Seabass

That first hit sounded more like frame than slider to me

Oh yes, but it just looks like spots, not all along the slider.

Yes sir, got released at 5pm yesterday after the last CT scan. So far so good, no heart damage seen in the scans. Vessels all look good, too. Just gotta figure out what the pain was and why it made my arms numb and made me dizzy. Feeling good today though.
