    So a couple of us headed out to Calico today to pretty much just go and explore. We had never really been out to Calico so we didn't really know what to expect. We figured we would end up doing some really easy stuff :D We ended up running into Tim, and his brother (we ran into them last week at Cleghorn) So we all decided to join up and see where the roads would lead us to!

    It turns out that the road we choose has some pretty hairy bypasses!!! We never really thought we would be able to get through But thanks to Tim and his brother for doing an awesome Job spotting everyone and stacking rocks when we needed them we got through the entire trail without any huge hassles!

    We even impressed some Jeep owners who said and I quote "You guys will never be able to get through" It was pretty awesome seeing the Jeeps turnaround while we went ahead :rolleyes: Anyway here are the pictures from todays run which was a freaking blast! We might even decided to do this run at night to really make things interesting!

    Thanks Guys! We had such a freaking blast today!! It was awesome to totally go in there not knowing what to expect and to then get thrown into some serious stuff and come out alive was totally cool as hell!

    The pictures don't do the trail any justice!! The pictures make it look real easy what we did, but trust me this place has to be at least a 3.5 rated trail!! This trail will seriously bang your truck around if you are not careful!! My brothers Rock Sliders are torn to shit now :D But like I said it was fun as hell!

    Good shit brother! Had a blast! Time to start planning the night run up here.

    Tom, thanks for taking one for the team today and running trail boss. You pretty much damaged every part of your truck except for what the sliders were protecting :eek:! Got damage on your front bumper, rear bumper, right and left rear quarter panels, lets not forget you killing your exhaust either! That's what its for right :D?

    DAMN! I can't wait to go back.
