Labor Day wheelin in Northern AZ

Got to get out of the heat in Phoenix AZ this weekend with a few friends. Went about 200 miles North to an area called "The cracks" It was a great weekend!!! Here is a link to the pictures, I am sure you will see a few "Famous" Jeeps...... Hackles Jeep Needs more Flex though. I think 1BLKJP's does too.....

Hey Joe, I moved this one over to Trail Runs.

It was an AWESOME weekend up in the high country. Good Wheelin, Great Friends, Excellent weather at 6300 feet. There were probably a thousand pictures taken this weekend. Lisa's above were some of the best, but there will be some more highlights as the thread goes on and Hackle is editing the video also.

I think Regina took a bunch of those. And the guy with the Pinz got me on my "what I thought" was almost flop. :d

Here's Lance's flop. Or I guess we should say 2nd flop. He flopped and three of us pulled him back over and he said he wanted pictures so we pushed his jeep back on it's side.

Here's another one of our buddies taking a little high line on one of the trails. Notice the cooler stayed nice and tight.

The videos are up. These are from Sunday when we ran everything backwards. I broke them up into the two main areas. The Squeeze and the Snake Pit.

Squeeze

You like that Scott? It was a really easy weekend too. No one had any issues. Rigs were built for the terrain and everyone that didn't want to tackle something didn't like they should do.

Hackle, video looks great buddy.

My navigator, John, took over 2hrs of video from the first day. Lots of good flex shots of everyone through the snake pit, etc and from when I lost the bead going through the squeeze. I'll see if I can get it on a website somehow.

John was feeling "homesick" for his xbox video games so we left kindof early but had a great time while we were there.

"Fat chicked". I guess we did fat chick you guys, sorry bout that. I'll blame my nephew since he's not on here to defend himself... he'll be starting fires or something and burn our jeeps to the ground if he's not doing stuff constantly... not much of the socialite so sitting around for the north wall was torture for him. After hitting town he was begging to go home. lol... but I know he had a blast cause it shows in the videos he took. It was awesome.

I'll be at the shop in the morning to talk a little with joe about my new lift. Can't wait to get that thing scheduled and installed.

Later,

Ben

Yup, that's all the directions I'll give to. It really sucked driving all the way from Heber with a blind fold on.
