    there are still a lot of parts we didnt explore. Old Dale Mine District is a lot rougher than we anticipated. The trails were all rough and rocky. Most of my time was in 4LO. We had to turn back from a lot of mines because it was just too technical and not worth the risk to get there.

    Next trip is going to have to be:
    - 4x4 mandatory (locker preferred)
    - min. 2" lift
    - min. 33" tires
    - engine, tranny skids
    - LT is not preferred (way too wide)

    I think some of my favorite moments were when we stopped and hiked. It's nice and refreshing to explore on foot. Need to bring better shoes for next time. My vans didnt protect my feet at all from those sharp rocks. And bring an ankle brace Tom!
