Oh, and by the way, major shouts out to Clint, your the man, without you Ken wouldn't have been the only one to blow out his shorts. I'll post up when I get the vids up, some are really good.
 






I just want to throw in that I did see Rick driving down the main drag one day in the pumpkin. Me and the heep guys ran Cliffhanger on Thursday morning. Excellent and the first time I've done it. Lots of white knuckles. Thursday night we ran Kane Creek. Excellent trip! Friday was Poison Spider Mesa and Golden Spike. Saturday we ran Hell's Revenge. I busted a brake line and had to clamp it with a vise grip. I limped out and managed.

Moab was great wheeling again, but I could go without the 40+ mph winds. It was a bit much! Keep the photos coming, I enjoy seeing what them 'sploders do ;)
 






OK, so I have a ton of favorites. Hope it is not too many! Seriously, Poison Spider Mesa is cool! My camera died on prichett, so these are all Poison Spider, Golden Spike, Gold Bar Rim:

Great pictures! Looks like you all had a successful trip
 






QUOTE=Kirby N.;2469726]I am home and finally have a chance to sort through pics. We bailed out early on the prichett run due to a broken TJ and a long drive home:rolleyes:. We'll be back!!

Two unexpected situations slowed us down getting home...

1) I popped a brand new MTR in the side wall on the winch point coming down that first major obstacle on prichett. I wish those tires weren't discontinued! I'm pretty sure where you can get one, my friend has been looking to get rid of one for a few years now.(brand new)

2) I heard a consistant squeek after the first minor obstacle on prichett. I told Phil (bronco phil not the other one) that I had a driveshaft ujoint probably going out due to the noise. Then I forgot to check it! So on the side of I -70 we pulled the rear driveshaft so I could front wheel it into Grand junction. Then we picked up a Auto Zone special :rolleyes: joint and installed it in the parking lot of Qdoba while my wife and kid ate dinner.

We got home about 1am and my wife and I were up and at em for work early the next day!

Awesome trip. Ill post my favorites of my pics to follow...

Clint- any high res of your pics? I just checked but when I re sized them I must have saved over instead of making copies. Sorry man there were some good shots of you.

Lastly, big thanks to everyone. Really nice to meet all the guys I have pm'd over the years. Great to see Clint again and finally wheel with him. The Grand was unbelievable... but most of it's success was all driver! Thanks clint for showing us around!:salute:[/QUOTE]
Thank you to everyone for the props but I don't really deserve them. You guys were awesome and well motivated. I know this was the best explorer trip yet and I am definitely looking forward to next time.
 


















Is the rest of the Washington contingent back home safe and sound? Figured I would have seen something from them by now:dunno:

Yep we're all home. I rolled into the house about 2:30pm yesterday. I had to stop by the camper repair shop to get an estimate on the aluminum frame weld that broke below my slider. Should be covered by the extended warranty I bought, but if not $1850. Thank god for extended warranties.

I have a honey do list a mile long and apparently my mother-in-law is coming into town today. So once I finish that list, I will sort through the few pics I have and get them posted.
 






Starting to get through some pictures and videos.

Here are some pics;

I know I really should know this, but I guess I don't pay attention enough. Can someone tell me the board names of the owners of the camo BII and the olive drab Sport? I like those rigs a lot, for obvious reasons!

With the exception of the 2nd generation front clip on Rick's Pumpkin (which I think is a '93); all first generation. . .

Please tell me that is just the camera angle in this picture...lol

It is...notice the clouds, now turn your monitor (or your head:p:) until the clouds are level.
But it's still very steep nonetheless.
