Spying on the spy plane? This would explain the planned attack later that night. :D

I had nothing to do with it. I wish I did as I would have come up with something far more interesting than this 'strange clicking noise'. Something more like my idea to remove the fuel pump fuse. :D

Yeah, and those full size brakes in the front really help out too... :D

The only body damage I got this trip was on the right front fender from my tire with the extra flex I get from the wristed arm and minor scrape where everyone else lost a tail light or window.

Before I forget - the zuk did have a few issues, but all really minor. One leak at the top of the third member on the rear housing - not sure why on that one; and the clutch cable took a couple of hits that meant I added more zip ties to it.

Thanks to everyone who got the run organized and put together.

I learned a lot out at Truckhaven. I'm definitely a novice at offroading and tips from BKennedy, Tom Rios, Ray Hutchinson and group helped a ton.

Cool to meet everyone out there and see so many different rigs.

Going up the small hills out near Ocotillo Wells where all one could see (until making it over the peak) was hood and blue sky was interesting not knowing where the trail weaved next.

The Calcite Mine was a good experience even if it was above my skill level and knowledge as was obvious from my 42psi tire pressure that I ran for about 2/3rds of the "stocker" run on Saturday. Sure made a difference on the trail with the tires at 22psi.

Curious as to what the more experienced offroaders thought the Calcite Mine trail rated on 1-4 difficulty?

Thanks again, Chris
