It appears that I'll have a quiet weekend at home with a sick kid (my wife is headed to her parents with the healthy and wild one) so might be able to work on compiling pictures and such on DropBox and posting a few favorites.

I did the straight through trip once in the 4Runner which made it a longer trip than your 16+ hour trip, but had a 2nd driver which made it easier for sure.  I was ready to be done driving at the top of the pass on that trip...

I did the straight shot from Moab to AZ trip home when I was there and the 8 hours was killer for me, driving by myself!  I don't know that I could do 16 hours straight any more.

Gnarls.

Everyone made it home OK? :driving:

The Jeep has a few new rock dimples.  :(

Is Pritchett Canyon still open?  :dunno:

Looking forward to any new photos or videos when you all get settled down and recuperated from too much fun.  :thumbs:

Gnarls.  :D

Everyone made it home safely.  Chris stopped by today to return my soft top and return his.

The Jeep didn't get much new damage from the flop on the passenger side.  It sounds like it developed a significant misfire on the Elephant Hill trip that's likely related to the flop.

We didn't go to Pritchett Canyon, but it's still open and a very gnarly trail...

I made a little progress sorting pictures today, so we'll see if I can get anything posted tonight or tomorrow.  No promises.
