No worries mang... Hopefully we can get them to run the loop clockwise as it is my perferred way. More climbing clockwise. We will get you through. Cut my teeth on this trail in a stock Rubi. Never got hung up once.

JUST WATCH YOUR SPOTTER!

We can run up Doran and down Odessa if you want. Pucker Pass isn't nearly as fun though going down ...almost a yawn

I'm down for whatever. I know my rig is more capable then I am. It will go anywhere, especially by then. It's just my confidence level that's all. I'm just paranoid about any major damage, IE axles, diffs, etc. eventually I would like to do full floating axles.. Anyway we will be up late fri, early Sunday. Have a memorial service to go to so this works out great. I'm excited to wheel calico and see some familiar faces

I scratched my rails quite hard this last trip, all kind of fresh shiny metal showing when it's supposed to be painted black. Oh well they still on and working good.

That is a story starter for when a cager comes up to you and asks, "how did you do that"

And you go, "THERE I WAS...."

While they sit there like this....

Hey everyone. It's windy here came up about 4pm. Sure wish I was coming back with you guys. Dave and I drove past your camp site. Someone was there. I checked out the gatekeeper and there was some fresh oil there. Looked like a leaky diff. I got Stan and Scott to spot me tomorrow after the run so wish me luck and I hope my jeep is not still wedged in there when you roll in.

Randy, you should have told me you were seeing the Knife Doctor. I would have brought you a smile or two. How are you?

Way more rocks on the trail than in oct when I ran it with you. The rains have made it much more interesting. You guys are going to have a ball. Gatekeeper was just not doable in my jeep Scott and Stan walked it and said not to try it. I didn't want to be that guy so I backed out of the slot and went to the motel. Bummer. Maybe when I'm on 40's...

I ran it a couple weeks ago leading the group of 20...and I still thought there were too many rocks stacked. If nothing else, hopefully you guys kicked some out.

It wasn't rocks stacked as much as huge boulders in the middle of the trails, weird, like there was a big earthquake out here and the boulders rolled into the trails.
The trip to Wall Street was fun, I'd never been there. Good move on backing out of the Gatekeeper Bob, your jeep is still in one piece. Btw, the Toyota rock Krawler didn't make it it last night either. Blew a tire off the wheel and didn't make it half way. He was very well equipped too.

Everything Lori and Rob have ever posted about Calico is true! It's not only awesome it's beautiful. Mike and I were laughing at the fact that for the past 14 years we have driven right by it on our way to Lake Havasu and never knew it existed.

We had not planned on doing Odessa and Doran on Friday, figured we would do a little site seeing with Jeff. After talking to Dan and Bill, they assured me the Jeep was good to go and they would get us through. We told Scott we would follow his lines since he has the same Jeep, he was awesome.

Those guys got us through it all and let us know what to expect as we approached different obstacles. I can't thank them enough!

I said I didn't want any trail renamed Pumpkin eater after me, and there isn't We had a couple tough spots at the end I think it was around the rock garden, I guess a bunch of new stuff has rolled in over the last couple weeks. Either that or some type of small flash flood came through and washed the soil away, that's what everyone was saying. We weren't sure of the line to take and got in a little spot Dan spotted us out of.

All in all, I can say it was amazing! And anyone thinking of running this with no sliders should not!!! My skids, sliders and diff covers got a hell of a workout, the orange paint on a couple rocks is from the Poison spyders.....not the Jeep itself
