Was nice seeing the both of you again, small world were in!!! Wayne got me hooked up on air since I never hooked up with my bud for my co tank. He also gave me a link to a good set up for the on board air

DTM My wife and I made it out to the race. We met Jim and Debra, Peter and John. We also ran into to Grant and Dakota. We decided to enter the event via Soggy and trek across the desert instead go in the main entrance. I don't think we saved any time but it was sure fun driving thru the desert instead of sitting in traffic.
We first stopped to watch the car race thru a whoop section. It was cool watching how good those cars work. Next it was on to Hammer Town. It was huge! We drove thru, picked up a cool event shirt and talked to a few jeepers interested in my LJ. From there we spent the day visiting chocolate Thunder, Back Door, Jackhammer, and Wrecking Ball. The drive home was an adventure as we had snow all the way to the bottom of the pass, and no traffic! We has a great time spending the day with good people and our jeep.

WatchThis! What a blast we had in California. Got to wheel for two days. Did Jack, Sledgehammer and outer limits in the JK. Put three trannys in the race buggy this week and our driver came in 13 or 14 place. (Clay Gilstrap #26). Had a blast but it is time to go back to Texas.

I'll be ordering mine online.

As for the conditions...

1. It was cold as F
2. The dust cloud in and over the dry lake bed was nearly unbearable.
3. The wind was both a blessing and a curse. It would pick up and blow the dust out but the windchill didn't help #1

Anyway, we ran over to Backdoor at the start of the race and the gnarly section was pretty much barricaded off - no spectators - so we headed over to Chocolate Thunder to catch some action. We ended the day watching them finish out Clawhammer.

Overall it was a great trip. With the extra people that poured in last night and today and the ominous looking weather that appeared inevitable, we decided to sneak out of there and beat the traffic and weather (the weather, I did not beat). If I ever get the energy to upload my pics/bids I'll post 'em up.
Me to joe the weather was pretty narly today! You didn't miss anything in the vendor area most everyone was packed up by 4 or so! This years event was nothing to put in the books I guess I'll have to wait for the video.

Smokinjoe Was watching the live feed but issues with demand I guess made it cut out several times but cool to watch from work

You may have already found this, but if no one is able to get you a shirt I think you can order one here: King of The Hammers - Ultra4 Racing - Official Merchandise

Sorry you were unable to go this year, it looks pretty darn cold out there!!

All the time, but like Bill says, I guess we are wusses when it comes to the choices we have at times. He put it very accurately.

Rrampley I think I may have to go toodle around for a bit in Saturday! I am very close and probably have seen some 1000 jeeps driving out there there week. I am one of the lucky ones who live up here. It's a hop skip and a jump from my house in the south east portion of Apple Valley. But yes it's COLD high winds they say possible snow and again COLD!!!

yeeper5150 I'm so ready for this! See all of you out there in the morning. Ill be arriving sometime between 6 n 7

ChuckMRN From Calico you can cross under the I15 and keep heading south to Dagget toward I40. Cross over and take Camp Rock all the way to Cougar Buttes. It's a wide dirt road all the way. Not sure if it would be any faster though.
02-07-2013 01:11 PM
Fred1 I hear you. At least we aren't camping this time.
