French Creek:

TheJeepGuy Walks it. (We carry a Jeep with us to deflect the crap that comes from a lot of Jeep clubs in CO. :nana:)
http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47b9...D550/ry%3D400/

Ron doesn't.
http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47b9...D550/ry%3D400/
http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47b9...D550/ry%3D400/

*#^[email protected] LAYLA! She found a dead Elk and rolled in it. OOOH I was so pissed. She REAKED! Got some Fast orange and scrubbed her as best I could.
http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47b9...D550/ry%3D400/

Nate's (00RegCab) Rig parked while we winched Ron out.

http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47b9...D550/ry%3D400/

Lysmachia 08-12-2009 03:28 PM

Ike didn't like the tippy line we had him on the root above French Creek!
http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47b9...D550/ry%3D400/

MrDoug acted fine with it.
http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47b9...D550/ry%3D400/

Stryper had the SA line dialed in

Troy leading up to Cleveland Rock
http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47b9...D550/ry%3D400/

Lysmachia 08-12-2009 03:30 PM

Cleveland Rock:

One of the Jeeps in front of us made many attempts and finally made it.
http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47b9...D550/ry%3D400/

Kinda fun watching him go down! (Tippy)
http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47b9...D550/ry%3D400/

Shawn (theJeepGuy) Unstacked the super-highway that had been stacked from jeeps before him.
http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47b9...D550/ry%3D400/

So he had a MUCH harder time because there was no stacked rocks. He gave up after a respectable few tries. (He doesn;t do an optional stacked obstacle - it's cheating to him)
http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47b9...D550/ry%3D400/

Layla, all clean and fresh from her Anti-Dead Elk bath managed to completely tangle herself while watching.
http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47b9...D550/ry%3D400/

John, (Stealth4x4) didn't drive 14 hours from AZ NOT to at least try Cleveland rock!
http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47b9...D550/ry%3D400/

The Strap crew:
http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47b9...D550/ry%3D400/

http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47b9...D550/ry%3D400/

The way back down. MrDoug on the Root!

Nate (00RegCab) lines up
http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47b9...D550/ry%3D400/

Glad Ron's new shoes were nice and grippy! KM2's rock! (Especially at $300 for 5 Brand New!!! We are so good!)
http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47b9...D550/ry%3D400/

Lysmachia 08-12-2009 03:31 PM

Ok I need to go through my vids and make stills of the cool-ass wheel stand pics we got going back down in french creek. I will do that tomorrow. But for now, here are the stills I already have ;)

00RegCab and Mr Doug

Lysmachia 08-12-2009 03:38 PM

Mosquito Pass (between Leadville and Fairplay) Ike and Troy and I. Unfortunatly I think I deleted the pics ont he way up, which sucks because Leadville was having boom days and was doing burrow races up to the top of Mosquito and back down again. It was insane. We passed like 30 burrows being pulled by thier racers! The pass is the highest driveable pass in CO at 13,200 feet!

Ike on the way down (Fairplay side)

seeing the Jeep guy with the keyboard reminded me that I need to get some of those rollbar mounted hand holds...need some to haul my big fat butt up into the Trekker...plus they can bet moved around unlike a fixed mount tube.

glad you guy had a good time...I betcha Tippy was jealous:hillbill:

Lysmachia 08-13-2009 09:21 AM

Tippy doesn't get jealous anymore. She knows it's her lot in life to be a lawn ornament. And Troy's runner is named Ron (as in Ron Burgundy from Anchor man) I dunno his sister named it. ;)

The Jeep Guy is a good friend troy and I have known for 4 years and been wheeling with in Moab a lot. He doesn't wheel with Jeep clubs because he finds them too pretentious. So seriously whenver he moves he looks up a toyota club to run with. When he moved to c-rado, he already had the hook up via me! :D

scuba 08-13-2009 09:27 AM

Nice pics molly !!

That was a rough day for nate. Broke 2 more CV's... we finally realized his ARM is not where it should be and may have been precipitation all these CV/HB's breaking. (He has had 4 so far)

Cool trip, wheelin Co is definately on my list of things to do before I die.

AxleIke 09-16-2009 08:17 AM

Nice Molly.

Last weekend we did a night run too, but it was a baja run! Got to french creek in 40 minutes or so, and that was with playing on the wall.

Also, did a 15mph, high range assault down the "one way" section. It was AWESOME.

Managed to blow the air out of a beadlocked 40" tire. It was a HARD hit.

Lysmachia 09-16-2009 02:56 PM

Didja resead the bead with CO2 Isaac? Cuz your the bomb with that!
