Yeah when Scott said I only had a 15% chance of making it after I would have flopped at least once it really got me thinking. Then Stan told me about the piles of busted diff parts and fluid up there that was the icing on the cake. Maybe when I'm on 40's

I got a couple good pictures of you climbing up that first tough section. It was damn impressive!! It got dark so fast I was surprised.

You guys really went after The Gatekeeper and showed everyone it's not a trail for the timid.

Here are a few pics I shot last night before I could wait no longer for my meatloaf dinner at Peggy Sue's Diner. It was pitch black when I left in amazement and admiration for what they were doing.

The Toyota didn't make it past the second obstacle after probably close to two hours of continuous effort which gives everyone a good idea of just how tough The Gatekeeper has become in recent years.

Some of the ballsiest wheeling I've seen in a long time.

I had a great time this trip, thanks everyone!

Paul and I devised a pretty good plan for doing it in my stocker...just start and the top and gun it, gravity will take care of the rest! Might have to down a few bottles of Guinness before I do it though.

Before I forget it... another big congratulations to Jeff & Sandi on their marriage earlier today in Calico. What a great couple, I know they're going to be very happy with each other.

And Jeff, that "plumbing" issue turned out to be the pool level was so low that the pump was loudly sucking air through the skimmer. Bummer my wife couldn't have figured that out, I would rather have attended your wedding.

Petersen's 4wheel & Offroad would be a good start ... they have a ton of different magazines under them ... drop a line to their editors! Here is a link to all of their contact info ... they did an article on a friend of my dad's Ram-Charger in Four Wheeler a few years back and all he did was submit a Reader's Ride... turned into a page article.
