    Well I will watch that shit show. We are talking coming all the way up and over and dropping down into Alice. Right before the summit on the north side there are some recently exposed large rocks. They could hurt a ru.

    We are on the same page. That pic that Phil put up will be in front of you before you reach the first summit on the north side. Who knows though the FS might bull doze that section again and make it a road next spring. They like to maintain this trail alot.

    Dang that first one looks like all season tires, and gives me hopes from my sport on stocker tires.

    I'll have to see if I can join up with a few of you guys this summer, I havent done much wheeling, and none in the taco, but need to get in the hills

    I would love to come see this happen. You might be able to get most of the way up but there are a couple gnarly spots :D

    laura went with me but no other trucks. did see a jeep that turned around though. never got stuck but almost had to use the winch on an off camber ice patch as an anchor point for the front of the truck so it didn't slide. i will have tues wed completely free but i'm off work by about 4pm everyday

    That sounds fun, about like all the winter wheeling trips I have been on. Gotta be ready for ice!
    Sounds great, cuz I leave work by about that time every day too. Where about is the shop? I might have to figure out some way to warm up the skids before we get started because I am keeping them in the garage and they are effing cold. I wouldn't even want to try to put paint on them like they are right now.

    Sevenmile was a good time on saturday. The trail was mild but not boring. some snow, but moatly dry. Lots of cool trail spurs to go play on. Joey, do you have any pics to post up of the trip? I only have three pics of your truck but I will have them up soon.
