That sums it up. 4 days of driving for 2 days of wheeling.

ok, lighten up - at least none of you got beaned in the head with a rock!

All in all we had a good time. It was fun running (at the tail end) with the "big boys" and watching them on a harder obstacle on Holy Cross. Always nice to see someone do to their truck what I wouldn't even consider.

Glad the weather held out for most of the weekend - but wish it would have been better for the potluck BBQ. Oh and it wasfun downing a few with old and new.

We didn't take a lot of pics this year - but here are the ones we did take. If anyone wants a bigger full res images - pm me.

nice pics guys.

i wish i could have made it this year, but it just wasn't meant to be. i'd like to wheel out there for the scenery just as much as the challenge. i've been a web wheeler lately for various reasons and pry will for the rest of 05, but i think things will be back in gear come 06.


and i wasn't even there but i can just tell there are some weenies here getting all bent out of shape over schaefer. he's a cool guy, you just have to understand his humor. it's really not that hard. he knows his ˟˟˟˟˟ when it comes to wheelin and 3rd gens, and volcom, i'd say he could handle the rubicon just fine.

Steve- You grumpy bastard. Go tear that T-case apart!!!


Anyhow I want to see a pic of the largest whatever it was rock.
Here's two pics from "secret creek" - eight miles of getting it. We talked about sand....the back tires were in just that while starting the climb. Imagine this with 1-1.5 ft of water!? This is within one mile of my place. Wanna move sucka....lol.
That's the test mule driving. Since he has done various Tacoma testing here lately I thought I'd let him do the SC trail whilest I enjoyed some testy beverages. Shortly there after we broke a front inner axle on the next obstacle. My junk was absolutely crippled in here with 3wd so we drove the five minutes back....slowly to proceed with Taco testing festivities!!!!!!!
Man I was just looking at the picture where I was behind the buggy, and damn that tire was not over the rock yet.....was in gear...but no parking brake....not too smart.

Curious- Is this what I am supposed to expect in MOAB!? I'm not to into the drama.

We missed you............

But the drive was really long. Especially for you guys. Casey did so well and finally did break his first axle. The look on his face was priceless, man was he pissed.

In fact he broke the stub on the axle and the hub. Not the CV. Those stock Tacoma manual hub axles are impressive.

Why is everyone working so hard to ruin this "Trip-Trail Reports & Photos" thread?

Someone start a new thread entitled "Let's all be petty and bitch & moan over inconsequential bull┼┼┼┼" for the drama some are so hellbent on perpetuating. It takes two (or more) to tango....

For those that have shared pics - thanks! Looks like the wheeling was great!

Who's going to step up and get this thread back on topic?

well aside from all that occurred above, thats a shame...especially coming from an outsider.

awesome trip guys. Glad to hear it was a good trip for most.

Definitely impressed with those IFS 3rd gens that did holy cross..love the pics of the rear ends just sitting on top of those boulders...awesome Mercedes G-wagen?? Steve your 4runner looks like it handled it very well. I especially like how you kept the COG so low on the rig...

does anyone have video to post?

Exactly. I know Casey's 4Runner could have done the same whale rock line I did. I know it. He's not really ready for that yet though, but the truck is.

Those IFS trucks can do alot. the front ends are very good and really work well. As far as I found the more stock parts you keep the stronger and more robust it stays.

Can I go more places than I could with 35's and IFS? No. Can I now put a show on and bark all 4 thirty five inch tires at the same time. Yes. It's all about strength. That's it. When climbing whale rock with IFS I would have had to make sure not to over do the gas. With the Dana 44 I just gave it as much as I wanted and knew it would be there no matter what. That is why you swap.

Avoid the bling, stick with Toyota parts and keep it strong. Let's go wheeling !!!

I apologize !

I apologize to all for my post. Some people just push the wrong buttons quick. I'll delete it. Looks like a great trip and just for the record
I've learned a ton from Steve - from a distance even !

Hi All!

Hi Everybody!
Wow, just reading this thing has tired me out. hee hee Boys will be Boys I guess. (And I love you ALL )

Anyway, back to the Trail/ Trip Report...
Once again a great time! The trails were awesome. I absolutely loved Holy Cross. What a fun and beautiful trail! It was challenging for us yet so exciting and fun. I loved watching the bigger rigs at French Creek. I really have never seen anything like it- Casey hanging on by your rear... Steve crawling and grinding and crawling... SO COOL!!!

John and I enjoyed leading Wheeler Lake on Saturday. Too bad we had some naughty 'Jeepers' to deal with but such is life. The trail was great, Bowling Ball Hill was slick- and it was brisk at the top! We got everyone down and had a safe day. Congrats to all of you that did Wheeler! I know that when you are new to the moderate stuff those obstacles can look HUGE! You all did so awesome! Thanks to Mark for being a great spotter too.

I love that every year I understand a little more about the trucks, learn a little more about how to see a good line and most importantly- have a fabulous time with old friends and meet some more new ones. You were all so much fun and I appreciate the fact that I will live about 7 years longer because of all the laughing I did around the campfire.

I appreciate the fact that everyone was willing to cook in the rain and huddle under canopies for the potluck. Thanks to you all!

I can't wait to see you all again. I look forward to seeing the rig evolution next year...
XXXOOO,
Anna Banana

I can't wait to get my rig out here and go ride Wheeler, because it sounds like you guys had a blast and it's beautiful.
