Synopsis

I had a great time during this run . We were so focused on the trails, I don't think anyone took any pictures. We started with 7 Jeeps (scoobyjeep, skjeeper, rvkillian, FireMike, davwashere, IslandTJ and Nick in the XJ) and ended the day with 4. We decided to start the day run at the Jordan creek, point of Archers - section J. In sequence, we ran:
  • Archers west to east (most of the trail excluding waterfall and can opener)
  • Rocky Uphill
  • Hogs Back (all sections)
  • Firebreak 5
  • Cedar Tree
We also witnessed a separate group consisting of a Toyota 4Runner and Cherokee (both open diffs), who were struggling up the 1st section of Firebreak 5. The group's wheeling technique consisted of hitting their rev limiter as much as possible. When they finally made it up the first section, they waited and watched our 4 (scoobyjeep, skjeeper, FireMike, and IslandTJ) make it up the Rock o' Doom section. When we made it up, the group allowed us to pass them, to continue on to the the 2nd section of FB5. After we all made it up, we stayed awhile to watch the 4Runner and Cherokee. skjeeper, tried to help them with some spotting but after the Cherokee sprayed him with mud spatter, he decided to trek up and join us at the top of the section, to continue with FB5. With us leaving, the 4Runner and Cherokee continued their attempts up, without much success.

When we were done with Cedar, we headed out to the Rogers staging area to air up and reconnect our swaybars. Right before we turned out to Beaver Dam road, we spotted the Cherokee towing the 4Runner out with a chain .

What a day .

A big mahalo to scoobyjeep for setting up the run and to skjeeper, for leading the group through the trails .

Yup, thank modern technology for washing machines, my clothes were covered in mud galore.

All in all, it was a fun day! Rocky uphill was a little tough, had to winch myself out of one small segment, but I made it out!

Had a blast regardless, I think I have had my fair share of rocks for a while, just in time for my run next weekend.

We will have to get together again sometime soon!

take care all,

Oh yeah, let's not forget the blown tire bead on Nick's XJ on the Archers Hill Climb. Good thing he was near the top when it happened. Hopefully he can get it seated again for next time.

Aside from the one blown bead, and me winching out of a hole, there luckily wasn't any real carnage like that seen with the 4Runner and that XJ.

Again, real fun fellas, we'll have to do it again sometime with some more sunshine and less rain.
