Potatoe Ridge Rocky Gap 3-30-13

For those of you not following the Sunday 3-31-13 thread, there is a small group meeting this Saturday at the Dunkin Donuts just west of the 215 and Charleston at 8:30am heading out at 9:00am for Lovell Canyon thru Potatoe Ridge to Red Rock. The More the merrier.

Ditto to that one as well. Thanks Joe!

I can't remember a bad ride yet. It's always great to get out with people with something in common. The Jeep is a great tool for that. I personally can't see my future without one!

Thanks but the credit goes to Panthor98 it was his e-mail that got it all started.

The uphill from Lovell Canyon seemed a little more challenging than the Red Rock downhill. Still want to do Rocky Gap lunch and Wheeler Pass home some day this summer. Would be a longer day but you can do it with later sunsets.

Got to get some work done now that my hand is feeling better. Flares or a body lift got all the parts just been sitting all week.

Looks like slim chances for work in May nothing posted yet to apply for and I have less than 30 days and I think the process will take longer so I may have a lot of free time on my hands for a little while. Be a nice vacation but the pay would really suck.

I posted the best of the pics and my rider had a great time. He was able to decide on a lift kit after our trip and saw the difference between 2.5 and 4 inches of lift.

So I will be here nightly working I think I have enough Desert Wrangler trips coming to keep me out of trouble but if Repairman comes up with the Death Valley ride I may have to go. The route looked interesting even though it is a few miles it could be great trip.

Well now that you mention it, the club is having a ride in the same area the weekend before I was thinking about going. I'm signed up for that ride. If there's still a lot of interest, I could still do some planning.

I just took some new to the offroad seen friends through this trail a week ago and they did just fine, it has alot to do with the spotter and the ability of the driver to follow his commands.
