Well, I guess I need to recap this run. Lets just say it was a blast and food was the great like normal with the duo of @Phulcrum and @elripster . It all started on Thursday morning as we did 130 miles from Quartzite to north of Lake Havasu where we camped in little spot on BLM land. We got going on day 2 and ran in to some issues with all the trucks. Everyone had small issues due to hard driving, whether it was my front shocks coming loose at the upper eye, to @KTP finding sway bar nut loose, to @hamilt0n having front shock issues, @Phulcrum with air box issues and lastly @elripster almost loosing his roof rack. All things said we lost some time this day and finished with only 65 miles done with camping outside Golden Valley. Saturday morning we had a mission to camp at the spot of the Uboat incident from Christmas time last year. That had @chap79 sinking the cruiser and the recovery and fixing for two days. This, the day, proved to be difficult with 150 miles driving on varied terrain and map issues. This day we saw high desert to true mountains and then back down. We had drove hard into the evening and made it to the camp site at dark. Happy we arrived, all in one piece, and trucks driving fine. That last night was very nice to hang and all the stress of miles gone. In all @Cruiser Bauers finished the trail, @KTP has a small section to do to finish and now the others have goals finish as well. Great trail and very cool views with great FRIENDS!!! One thing to bring if a group is coming is a hedge trimmer as many of the areas are over grown and need a trim. Thanks to all for coming and a video is coming!!!

We climbed to almost 8k feet into the Hualapai mountains outside of Kingman. Little did we know how many hours of tight cliffside wheeling were in store for us!

Came through a working ranch, but that windmill is toast.

And we carried on. Little did we know of the fun and challenge that awaited the second half of the day.
