: Miller Jeep Trail 8/23/08

Had a great run today. SoCalRubi, JackTuttle, and Yours Truly did Miller Jeep Trail and Wheeled around Hungry Valley Off-Road Park. We had absolutely beautiful weather and no traffic to make us wait 8)
We met some cool guys with Jks too and one of them (Dave/Black 4door) showed us some really cool obstacles to do. Thanks Dave!
Overall a very perfect day.
Was there still a lot of ash up there? We ran miller a year ago and I was was covered with ash from head to toe. Coughing up black **** for 3 days. Nice trail tho.

Nope, no ash. Lots of new growth and wild flowers. Still looks like a dead forest though. I guess all those dead trees will take a few years to biodegrade.

Yeah it's a great trail. Though not as hardcore as I thought it would be, It had some tough spots that were pretty challenging. It has changed a lot since I've been there. You don't run Lockwood creek to get to the Miller trail head anymore.

Looks like a great time out. Some nice artistic shots in there. I like the one shot with the moon behind the tree. That red YJ looks sick also. Some nice flex shots on the short steps. Also like the shots of the yellow school bus and the black and white offroad limos.:beer::beer:

It would be cool to see the pics you and your wife took Jack.
09-04-2008, 10:59 AM
Richard and I were wondering why you didn't post up the pics your wife and you took of our MJT run.
I'm Lazy..... :D Here are some of the better shots.
I did send some pics to Teraflex of the Flexing at Hungry Valley and they posted them on their website.

Very nice, you guys have all the fun.
Yes, Yes we do. I/We try to go on as many runs as I/We can, which is pretty frequently.
And since I am unmarried my time and money remain unstolen.
Hope you can make it out on a run with us soon Rockcrawl.
