Chuck and I ran 21 Road yesterday. Had a great time. We each had the privilege of using the stap, once to get the other of a rock. The day was beautiful and the trail had its many challenges as it always does. We made it up the rock shelf, just past what we used to call the rock garden, where we had lunch. Chuck and I walked up from there to see how doable the trail was, and it looked like the real obstacles were on up there. While Chuck's FJ60 is more than capable, my FJ40 was about limited out at that point. While there, a couple of highly modified Bronco's came up, and they said it was about another 2 miles on up to the top from there, and yes they said it is very challenging. On our way back down, I had a large boulder jump out and take a bite out on my drivers door, and other than that and knocking some rust out of the rt rear quarter panel, hard to tell much, if any difference. I will post some pics as I'm able here from Grand Junction, as I have a poor inet connection.
The last picture is looking up the trail as it continues. We had lunch and turned around. I know Chuck has some pictures too. Hopefully, I'll be at the next meeting and can show the entire set of pictures on the "big" screen.
I am not sure how many pictures I have but I will try to post some tomorrow.
My wife doesn't like the big bang sounds of heavy steel on rocks. I keep trying to tell her that that sound is fine, it's the sound of someone crushing a pop can that's bad.
We went to Colorado National Monument on Sunday. The girls earned a junior ranger badge while we were there. They are nine and have earned seven junior ranger badges so they have seen lots of national parks and monuments. Lots of plants in bloom this time of year in the Colorado National Monument so that was good.
Made it back home just fine. Pulling the 60 on a trailer behind the motorhome back and forth across the Colorado Rocky Mountains takes lots of horse power. The V10 in the motorhome could use another 100ph for the passes but it did just fine.
We had a couple of off chamber spots that made Linda screem so loud that I thought she was in my 60 instead of Darryl's 40. When Linda screemed it made Diana and the girls screem. They seemed to connected together like the smoke detectors in the house?
