Had a great time with a great group on my first cruise moab event! Thanks to Kurt for leading a great first day on Devils Race Track and Eva Connover trails.

Saturday we did Sevenmile Rim. It is among my favorite trails due to the wide variety of terrain and wheeling representing Moab's trails - everything from desert rocky top of a rim type stuff to Hell's Revenge slickrock to sandy washes, and of course the most incredibly spectacular scenery. Oh yeah, did I mention sharing it with your best friends? I didn't have a gunner initially assigned, so I asked Rachael Kaiser if she would, and she turned out to be one of the best gunners I've ever had. Thank you Rachael!

Thanks for leading that for us Mark. It looks like Jim in that 80 did a fantastic job getting thru the Pickle.

Happy to do it. BTW, you were just a couple of cars in front of me getting on the the highway in Rifle today, but by the time I cleared the entrance ramp, you were gone!

Great time! Here's one of Jackson to start... Moments before he had a single bad bounce and grenaded both rear poly pro axles. Got them both changed out at the trail head and he was able to make it home today!

Ouch! Glad you got him fixed and out. Which trail were you running?

Me on High Dive. I thought my boss was going to have a open req after this one...



Jessie on the Upchuck "bypass", which has challenges of its own



Lindsey on Upchuck



I didn't get any photos of Rob, but he and Rich headed back at the Lone Rock lunch stop. We continued on, but Jessie broke at least one tooth off his rear ring gear on Hummer Hill, so we all headed back. Fantastic day!!

Looks like you were close to the correct line on High Dive but on too much of an angle at that spot, your back end should have been a couple feet over towards the passenger side. That last drop is always the scariest, it feels like the back is going to come up and over the front.

Mike on the first ledge. Unfortunately, on a perfectly normal looking attempt, he did something I've never seen before: He broke both u-joints on the rear drive shaft at the same time, and the whole shaft fell to the ground.





Greg, in his Cummins powered, 4-wheel steer, Rockwell driven, lengthened, but other than that bone stock 40, on the first ledge



Jim, getting his 80 up that ledge



A couple of Greg in the Pickle. There's a pretty good chance you've not seen this line taken before







Greg on the next ledge. You gotta love an oil burning crawler



Greg's rig is probably over 100" between the outside edges of the wheels. The shelf at the top of that ledge is a little narrower than that...



Jim and Greg, cleaning the exit





We exited the trail to the right on 3D, and ended up doing Mashed Potatoes on the way out. It's not the easiest trail to navigate, but it is fun.

Another great day in Moab.

Mark
The blue 40 that spit the rear DS has a huge lift on it. I don't know if he has his rear pinion rotated up or not, but if he doesn't use a double cardan DS on the rear he will keep spitting out broken U joints.
