Slight change of plans for me. My in-laws are coming into town today to celebrate a couple of March birthdays (wife, daughter). So, I will not be going on the early AM run with the Wasatch Cruisers. I will, however, meet ya'll at 2pm and run Snakes. My father-in-law and son will most likely come with me. I'll be easy to spot as I'm now sportin' the swag:



Ty, I'll need another sticker so I can match it on the driver's side :flower:

So by my count we've got Andrew, Brady, Ben, Jesse, Nicole, and myself. We may be joined by Mike (mikebontoft on T4R.org) and Tyler (pelygroso on RME4x4.com).

That's a lot of sexy right there. Chris, you're gonna be kicking yourself if you don't make it! Don't be like Tyson! Laughing

Bad news. My passenger side lower control arm bushing is shot. I'd had some noises from the front end for a while and thought it was just my cv's (they needed replacing anyways). I got those replaced and guess what? I still had a major clunk while turning at low speeds and the front end hopped around when encountering bumps in the road. The entire control arm shifts and really messes with the steering. Honestly, its kind of creepy to drive.
So, with a sad heart, I'm out of tomorrow's drive. The parts don't come in until Tuesday. Crap on a cracker. Sad

The best thing about not driving your own truck is you don't have to risk taking a strap and owing everybody ice cream. Very Happy

Hey, I was finally was able to register. It didn't want to take on my phone. Rolling Eyes

Should be a fun experience..... I'm a complete trail n00b so uh, go easy on me. I kid, but really it is my first trail. I'll probably end up there about 1:30-1:45ish. Have to take care of a few things. My TPS said "screw you" and a few other things I still need to get ready.

Is the parking lot just that big empty dirt patch on the map?

Yeah I saw that.. Entered it in my phone and it was going to take me somewhere pretty far off. used the same coordinates.


So it's just that turnoff from 73 then?

As you go West past 5 mile pass recreation area, the road turns Northish and then forks. Going left takes you to Vernon Reservoir and the Pony Express Trail. Stay right on 73 and then about a mile after that you'll see the big dirt parking lot on the right. I should be there about 1:50 - look for my gray first gen 4Runner with a black top.

Since I have to live vicariously through you guys, when can I expect a trip report? Someone better have taken a photo of everyone's rigs together. I almost don't want to see any photos cause its just going to remind me that I missed out. I hope everyone's rigs held up and that there were limited issues if any.

I'll get a new thread up for pictures later. haven't been home yet besides a shower. Had a great time today despite being in a bit of a fog. Hopefully next time I'll be a little more social Smile

got a few pictures I'm really happy with and a few I'm not happy about... and of course all the filler crap.
