July 5&6, 2017
Dee led driving Blanche , followed by Adrienne driving Pibble, and James bringing up the rear in WileE.

A sweet picture at the dinosaur tracks.
I'm not sure who had the most fun...James or Joe and I.

Thursdays trail of choice was Metal Masher. Red Rock 4-Wheelers rates this trail a 7 out of 10. This 11.7 mile loop follows around Arth's Rim and offers up some difficult named obstacles, and lots of fun. Dee (with passenger Rob) led our trusty band of wheelers followed by James, Scott (with passenger Adrienne) from Texas, Jim from Texas, and Glen bringing up the back.
The first couple of obstacles are unnamed tall ledges.

A great warm up for what is coming next...Rock Chucker...a tall, gnarly, ledgy climb.

A happy mom !
|Thanks Dee !|
Glen stands by to make sure all four wheels stay on the ground. It's tippy...I like tippy !
|A great photo Dee !|
It was so much fun having James here. Five days...five trails full of scary fun filled with lots of laughs, WOWS, spectacular views and wonderful memories !
I want to send a huge thank you to Dee who organized trails and led us on Hell's Revenge and Metal Masher.
Another huge thank you to Glen who led Kane Creek Canyon and joined us on Cliffhanger and Metal Masher. He always manages to be in the right place at the right time just in case.
And lastly, a huge thank you to Jeff who works hard all week in his buggy fabrication business, Dirt Squirrel Motors, LLC and still came out to play on Sunday...and led us on Cliffhanger.
He also got up early on Monday to weld breaks in Wile E's front coil over mount enabling us to enjoy the rest of the week wheeling !
Ahhh...the memories !
Until next time,
Happy Trails !
