      Been in flat Texas all week, can't wait to get up in the mountains!

      So what's the official count of vehicles?

      Me and you for sure. Maybe 96Ex. Not sure about Luke. Jenren is most likely out. And not sure about JuBean.

      Looks like I'm out. I wasn't able to get with the gentleman that is letting me borrow his tranny jack, and my super thoughtful, considerate, loving boss is not budging on the day off, (even though I've never worked a Saturday yet, and I requested the day well before the schedule was made). There's a slight chance this leak is just from an O-ring in the line that connects to the slave cylinder, but givin my run of luck, I highly doubt it. Looks like I get to chalk this one up to yet another raging disappointment. I can't express enough how much I really needed this, but higher powers apparently aren't ready to cut me a break yet. Have good time and be safe, I'll be watching for the pictures.

      Seems like a slim crowd (of 3, maybe 4 people).

      I've run this trail with as little as one other rig or as many as 6 others.

      Are you in Luke?

      might as well never count me in until you see me at the trailhead.

      We're looking at other trails but wish you guys a great time on Red Cone!

      Wow, that looks like an amazing road! I'm jealous. This is going on my to do list now for sure.

      Thanks for the pictures. Keep them coming if you have more

      Here is a few more

      This gives a good idea of the incline;

      Very cool run up to the summit

      There was a lot of traffic so we had to wait at a lower area before climbing to the summit. A long way down!

      looks like a fun trail, will def be on my list in the future too! ... sad to have missed it but i had a good camping trip anyway... flogged my friend's v8 4runner up some rocky forest service trails by aspen, having those extra cylinders felt nice but i still prefer my lil explorer :)
