James Bigham joined us late on our Golden Spike run. He is an original club member and CM planner. He had just left the club and moved out of state when I joined. I had never met him. So it was cool meeting him and seeing him wheel his understated 40.

Our Golden Spike run on Sat. went really smoothly and was quite fun. Rob Meredith was at the event and was on the run. He came by our trailhead to personal say he wouldn't be able to run the Spike with us. His wife needed him back at home. I was looking forward to running with himm again. But, we had, BVB with Robbie riding along, Steve Crase and Adam Tolman with us. Only about 10 in the group and it felt like a club run. We got back to the trailhead at 6pm. Yay!

MY name is Chris and I had a blast. I met many new faces and really enjoyed my time. I was in a little black 4runner that ran Golden Spike, Moab Rim then Flat iron mesa...Here's some of my better shots

Thursday-Moab Rim- Led by Steve and gunned by Jeremiah. There I was in the middle of a group of built 40's, 80's and a spooled mini truck. No issues on the trail and I was beat after that.

Day 1

Golden Spike
























At this point it was 545 and this is the last uphill obstacle. Everything else is dropping back down ledges on gold bar rim.


Did I mention cool trucks....

LT on 37's I really liked this one..

Default Friday- Moab Rim

Trail leader for the day was Scott Yoder and gunner was Steve Brady. I really enjoyed this trail and will be on it again.







This guy wasn't with us but another cool rig, pretty sure it was Michael's dad.

Hey - there was a picture of Brady.

You and your 4runner did a great job Chris. I'm glad you came out. Nice smooth job on the crack also.

Yes, that's Joe Calleja of Colorado Toyota Specialists, a long-time Rising Sun member and leader of many trails in Cruise Moab for us over the years. He normally sponsors a trail but this year the trail he normally sponsors, Behind the Rocks, was already sponsored by another local shop, Redline Landcruisers. So Joe just tagged along. He was a full registrant and I put him on the rim that day. He had a built 40 he wheeled for many years, and has subsequently built that truggy you see there.

The video of Marlin negotiating the waterfall was hilarious! I will totally have to give him crap about that privately.

Side by side action with Gary Coberly. Gary is an awesome driver. But in this video he actually failed getting up. I do have the video of his next attempt and he just pops right up like he usually does. But, it's boring compared to this one.

Here is the link if the embedded video doesn't work.
