    The MUD 100 series Photos thread

    @rb4638 at a secret little camp spot along the Rio Grande River in Southern Colorado. It was a great way to spend a few days with a good buddy.

    Wanted I'll buy your built 100 so you can make room for your new 200

    Been a while since I've updated this, but.... You're totally right. Sorry. I came here looking for a 200....

    Delta VS 100 Series bumpers in the works

    DVS is doing some very cool stuff for the 100 series. Got to check a lot of it out at HIH9. Pretty impressive stuff.

    The MUD 100 series Photos thread

    My all-time favorite trail. Expect a HIH in that area in the coming years. It's something we've been working on for a while. We have friends that live full time in Cooke City and things are in the works.

    HIHX UPDATE and HIH9 business. Chris and I are happy to say that we were able to write two checks from HIH donations this year. We ended up with just over $2,400 in donations! Thanks to all the folks that participated this year. A $1,250 check was presented to the San Juan County Sheriff's...

    FWIW, I've used my Baofang 12 miles away from the airport to see if I could reach the approach control frequency and was loud and clear. Just to add..... I've been a federal air traffic controller for over 20 years and was testing the capabilities with a controller friend (on a non active...

    Great time of the year to be here. Aspens will be changing over to yellow but not quite peak colors when you arrive. By the time you leave the area, Silverton should be peaking. Silverton to Ironton seem to peak a little earlier than Ridgway, Telluride and MV. We spend a lot of time in that area...

    Broke on top of the world trail. Need parts

    There are no "one ways" on Top of the World. Some folks go up the left, some go up the right. Personal preference. In general, going up the left route is more difficult which is why, historically, more folks go up the right side and down the left. OP, can you lock the center and pull the rear...

    Just so we're all on the same page.... we have ZERO plans to make ham radio a requirement for HIH attendees. Amateur radio is a serious hobby for those heavily involved and it is regulated by the FCC. Communication is fantastic and you can reach long distances with a basic setup. One of the...

    rear main seal?

    Dirty water/mud is usually the culprit. It probably wasn't the crystal clear water from Imogene or Stony, but the mud puddles and trail slop that got it.

    Events/Trails 9th Annual 100s in the Hills *SILVERTON COLORADO* July 24-29 2019

    Some great discussions on here regarding HAM, CB and GMRS. The one and only reason I studied for and obtained my ham radio licence was for communication on the trail. GMRS wasn't even a thing back then. Ham radio and the entire hobby surrounding it honestly doesn't interest me one bit beyond the...

    It's definitely something you should have a spotter for. All the trail leaders and spotters at HIH have at least two HIH events under their belts and have fantastic knowledge of the trails and the area. We're picky to a fault when it comes to selecting HIH trail leaders and it's not something...

    The true measure of any event that Brain and Heather attend is Stan the Dog's overall interest and enthusiasm. Stan looks completely disinterested in this photo but he secretly told me that HIH was one of his favorites. He also moved to the other side of the GX to peek out the other window but...

    Events/Trails 9th Annual 100s in the Hills *SILVERTON COLORADO* July 24-29 2019

    ^^Not even close. This year's hit was the biggest I've ever seen and I've taken a ton of photos from that spot! Can't believe you didn't break something. I have a ton more photos. It'll be 10-14 days before I get them all up.

    Dissent offroad aluminum and steel skid plates.

    A friend of mine owns a 4x4 shop here in Denver and I had him install my Dissent aluminum skids. They work on thousands of offroad vehicles each year and this is Colorado, so everyone has a roof top tent and skid plates. He had never heard of or seen Ben's skids or work before. When I picked...
