Post 'em up fellas...

Exploritory trip with Alvin, Cayce, and Ross. Great trip, brutal, but will make the top 5 in my book. Might had made #1 if the sleeping conditions were better (90% humidity, hot and no breeze).

I only have a few..

It was, I'm guessing if you rated this trail, I'd be 3 to 3.5. My only comparison would be Chiva or Charlou Gap. At least with those runs, you have some easy relaxing stretches in the road, this one seems to beat you all the way (maybe minus a half hour?). I could be a wimp...Let's see what the others post up.;)

I was thinking the opposite. I was about to throw in the towel in my 80:princess:. You made iron-man status doing that in your 40:eek:

The views, the campground, the creek, and the good company made all the miles and hours of rough road worth it. I'm already trying to figure out when I can make the trip again. :hmm:

I didn't take any pics to share - forgot my camera:whoops: so these fools' pictures will have to do. :cheers:

Ross went wheelin?:eek:

Nice job, this trail has been on my must drive list for way too long!:hillbilly:


Nope, didn't do it. Grace got car sick over Reddington Pass and threw up four times before we got to San Manuel. So to have mercy on her I drove around and met these guys on the back side. I have to find a better way to manage her car sickness. Every time I think I have it down ...

We had a great time anyway. It takes about as long to do the trail as it does to drive around. We had a great time and are planning on another trip.

112˚ John? :eek:

Yep, that's what the feds have slated for next weekend. Actually above normal all week.

Did you get all your stuff dried out?

And how about you Cayce, did you ever get any sleep?:D
