Wow... nice trip!

Wet wheel'n is VERY different from dry wheel'n!!  :yesnod:

Great photos and great commentary always add to enjoying the run vicariously.  :beerchug:

It always hurts my eyes seeing nice vehicles with so much body damage,  :sad2: but its too often part of the sport.  :driving:

Hi Gnarly
You are absolutely correct wet makes everything more challenging, add ice and snow to the rocks and it becomes a serious challenge. I opted not to attempt any of the major rock gardens today. Save some time and help the others instead. Picked up my first winch cable cut to my right hand (ouch) while helping Mark winch up one of the rock hills.
That stuff is like a razor blade.
I know how much I crave all the info when I miss out on a run. I'm no word smith that's for sure. Just try to give some story to the adventure.
As far as the body damage. The first one hurts the most, after that it's not as bad. For Me I want to be able to do all of the trails and that requires a level of acceptance. I hate every single dent but don't want to sit on the sidelines or turn around on a trail. I will never get to the point of I don't care or anything close. I consider some of the trucks just a toy or a big quad, Asa, Mark, and Joeyf are at this point with their rigs. They also get to do the most Gnarly stuff with no
concerns or worries. I honestly think the have the most fun of anyone. :)

Mudder [08:28 PM]:   not try to be a jerk, but are you serious bestgen?
Prismo [06:11 PM]:   Done, time to relax or as Bestgen says....FREEDOM!
HogCanyonHopper [06:54 PM]:   I like my little rod. it gets the job done
H8PVMNT [03:30 PM]: I can go both ways.

Joeyf and Rick has a brief conversation about the benefits and restrictions for each of their rigs. Hardcore crawler vs. capable new rig thatís at home on the highway pulling a off-road camping trailer.  Thereís no perfect rig and everyone has to figure out what level of build is best for them. If I started over I would want something a little more family friendly and maybe not as aggressive. Something that could be my daily comfortably would be ideal.

So it appears that Youtube has removed most of the video editing features they once offered.
I'm just going to put up the unedited videos as I'm not interested in purchasing video editing software at this time.
Click the youtube link and it will take you to a play list off all the videos I uploaded before I knew that Youtube sucks and removed the video edit features. Enjoy!

Wow... great videos!!!  :booya:

Loved the action!!  I gotta give you guys credit... cold wet rocks and snow!!  Your rigs did REALLY well.  Good spotting and driving!!  I noticed bgen's tires looked to be air'd down more than the other tires.. could be just the videos.  On our snow and mud runs I was always about 4 or 5 psi.

Look's like LOTS of fun times!!  :beerchug:  And... will make a great "remember when?" around a future campfire!!

Makes me want to buy a thrasher-basher and go wheeling again!!  :gap:

Thanks for sharing that!  :dancing:

I was at 5PSI

I was at 10 psi.

Rick was at 35 psi choosing clearance over superior traction pending the need for better traction...
