    Went to sedonafest with my dad and the FJ guys. My dad just got his FJ 4 weeks ago and took it wheeling for 3 days of fun! It was the best off-road event I have been to. VERY well put together and everyone was really friendly. The was 140 people there. All of the money went to the caitering and then the left over and raffle ticket money got donated to a charity. Everyone had a great time. Here are some of my pictures. The link below will take you to the thread with more pictures. I'm still going through all of my gopro video.

    Nice! Sedona is beautiful. I really want to go back but haven't heard of many trails there. Was your dad's FJ stock? And which one is it, btw?

    There are around 10 major trails in that area then others within an hour or so from there. Yeah his FJ is stock. has all of the factory goodies though. 4x4, locker, a-trac, OEM Sliders (toyota fj ones are bomb proof) the only aftermarket thing he has now is these BIG magnets the same color and are die cut to the fj to protect the paint on the trails. they work great. His is the Silver one.

    I want those new wheels he has! So even stock he's set for the trails what with 4x4, ATRAC and such.
    I'm off to bed, but I'll be checking out the other photos later. Looking forward to the GoPro video (I see where you put that...).

    there was no dust at the cinders? dang usually its crazy dusty. the cinders are a blast! its all just dried lava rock.

    did you guys make it back to twin bowls?

    DSC_0105_94d84f18e235048df51d5d5a465c016b10e0e31f.jpg

    ^^^^^this is the trail leading too the top of million dollar hill, which twin bowls are behind.

    great place, used to ride bikes there, worst part is it hurt really bad to crash. idk if i would take my truck there though.. seems like the paint would get chipped like crazy!

    great pics, looks like u guys had a great time!

    Yeah we made it back there and had a few guys driving around in one of the bowls. I have some of it on my gopro. then we went down the really steep hill on the backside to get off the top. Its fun out there. FJs don't like the whoops tho. they buck like crazy its pretty funny to watch.

    yeah the cinders are whooped to shit. fun on a dirtbike. that really steep hill they call hundred dollar hill, and i was wrong not at the top million, its hundred.

    yeah that hill is pretty gnarly. million is crazy.... its closed down, but you can still go up the back side, and the side which is still steep as hell

    you should do fine.

    well. its a different slush...

    but if you were on a quad or dirtbike without paddles, and your not a really good rider your not going to make it far if that makes sence
