Man--it just hit me,
Sheri and I completed 4 trails, broke and fixed the truck 2 times, and still made it to our motel room all in a day. Not bad for starting out at 1:00 pm huh?
Yeah, sometimes we push our luck seeking adventure to explore, but I had a strong urge to get to the roots of our site name. We needed a serious exploration.
I know it set a bad example to go out wheeling alone, however there was a little traffic. During the first breakdown I was able to pull into a visible campsite. We were offered aid there. As far as the Hancock pass trail, we were the only idiots on it at all that day.
About 200 yards before the trail head, we met a jeeper, who said we should be able to make the trail if we just took our time. He was right.
I will say, it was a scary feeling being on that road, all alone, and broke. Looking up the road it was almost a feeling of despair wondering if it would just break again in a few minutes. That trail is wicked.
Now that we are safe, I get a warm feeling of accomplishment.
The 2 times we broke were due to my mistakes. We should have had a easier time of it. Even though replacing an cv axle is an easy job, the trail makes it a bit more challenging. It's only 5 lug nuts, a pinch bolt and a hub nut after all---
