    • this indeed, was an incredible trip! the first day was ROUGH! but we made it through without any people injured. there was a major roll over while towing a broken jeep back to the camp for it to be AA'd out to the town.
      i think the quote for that day was,
      "things just got REAL ugly" and, "thingd just went from bad to worse"
      well, after this roll over, a couple of us stuck arround to see tequila dan, and his jeep off of the trail to a safe camp, and the rest of the group moved to continue the fun.
      after getting dan up the narly hill to camp, those of us that stayed to get him out hauled ass to camp, and showed up about an hour before dark.
      what a gorgeous place this is! FANTASTIC! the rock gardens seemed to go on forever, and the slabs were great. for a wheeler, you can really have it ALL. you get water (deep), rocks galore, off camber, hill climbs.... you really get it all here.
      we had a great group of people out there, and everyone made it off of the trail.
      kirk went through 4 tires, and a lower control arm bracket.
      seaphan got a couple of nice body scars, and a bent control arm.i got a bubble in a tire, and a couple of strress cracks in the front fenders.
      i think that is about it for real damage on the trail besides dan, whose jeep took the roll.
      great trip guys! lets do it again.
      DUCY ERSHIM in september?
      i limped my jeep home about 20-30 miles at a time, and got home at 6:00 this morning! thanks for sticking arround til we got to town brian!
      i am absolutely exhausted.
      i think it is fuel line, or fuel filter related. i never got it resolved on the road... just limped the whole 400 miles
      pictures will come later..
