I drove to Kingman on FRiday night to meet up with the Walapai 4 Wheelers for their "Friday night meet and wheel". We met at Sonic and had some quick food and off to the night run. It was about 4 miles away. I was asked if a mild "4" trail was fine I said sure, lets go. I was curious as 9-10 vehicles were going and one was a bone stock rubicon and one was a bone stock "X" model. I am no one to argue though as i was just along for the ride.
Well we got on the trail and it was a blast. The two stock vehicles were out just after starting. One person had a valve for a drain plug and snapped it right off. the other opted out.

The trail only a few miles long was tough, exciting, and great. We had a slight rollover by an early bronco but everyone was OK

I will upload a few night shots shortly.

Saturday a guy from VEgas drove down and another from Kingman went out to Moss wash trail. The trail itself has some 3 obstacle if you choose to take them other then that it is a 2-3 trail. Lots of loose 2 old washed out trails make their way up to a mansion built in 1929. It is made of concrete which is rare for that era.
The bronco that went with us lost 4wd shortly through the trail and I had to tug him over the bigger stuff. He did quite well for being in 2wd.
At the end of the day we were climbing out the far end of the mountains and i looked across and saw a red dot on the adjacent mountain. I got out the binos and you could see he was stuck and tryign to get out. I sent the bronco up the rest of the hill with my buddy and I turned around to go get on and find that trail. I did find the trail and found the red brand new chevy extra cab truck. they had just got themselves unstuck and said no big deal we do not want help... I wa slike You sure, OK. Of course they said they were resting and when asked if they were stuck the answer was "NO".. :rotflmao:

If you look about in the center of the pic in the "V" off in the distance is where the truck was spotted. Quite the drive over there but I owuld have felt bad not doing anything just in case.
