It was pretty darn fun! :salute:


Thanks Jimmy for getting things started, and I likes Orville by the way.

What a day, what a run. It rivaled last weekend's 3-Ball event. The snow and sand combined made for a very interesting run. Not only was the snow very slippery but once you hit the sand there wasn't much more traction with it being wet too. Front lockers were almost a must for a lot of the climbs we made.

In attendance for today's festivities were:
Danny
TJDave
Jimmy, Will and CJ
RoyBoy
Commando 14 and Commando 14 JR (David and Blake)
and Rich in the Lexus.

There were three other rigs with us most of the day but I'm sorry guys I never got to meet you. If you're reading this please post up so we know who you are. There was a white Yota flatbed, a black CJ and a lifted-to-the-max S10 Blazer. Oh ya, there was also a red 4-Door JK that I didn't get to meet either. Please post up guys.

There was hardly anyone else out there. The only rigs we saw "wheel'n" were two sleds....snowmobiles so we had the run of the place. Starting at the whoop-e-woops I wheeled all the way in from the end of Peterson Road on side roads and in the canyon and had a ball. When I got to our normal gathering spot I had to air down to make the hill climb where a few folks were gathering....it took me about 3 tries to make it.

From there we all headed into the big bowl and started making donuts and attempting to make a rather steep climb. After what seemed to be like 6 attempts by everyone there we gave up. I think only a couple rigs made it.

For a while we all scattered trying different trails. We finally all met at the power line and drove it to the fence. There were some nice climbs along the way. Once to the fence we made a right and headed along it for a couple miles. The decision was made to cut back across the desert and we came out back at our original gathering area where more fun and some pictures were taken. By this time the CJ, Yota and S10 had left.

After playing around for a while here we headed back down the canyon on our way out. We worked our way back to the lower parking area where we aired up and headed home.

I know I had a great time and I'm sure everyone else did as well. Post up guys.

Okay, pics!!!


Just getting started down the trail.

I've got a few video's to post and will do that as soon as I figure it out. In the mean time I hope you enjoy the pics.[/youtube]

Great run Danny! The Grand felt a little heavy in the sand, but it sure was comfy and warm, Blake had fun. I think it will do a little better once I hook up the compressor for the air lockers. Here's some pics:
