Giant Rock Rattlesnake cyn run 6-14 pics

Had a GREAT run yesterday!!!

SDMF, socalrubi, WOODS, Hundy, BILLY and all our crew headed out at 9am and didnt get bck to base camp till 9:30pm! Then SDMF and socalrubi drove home! So it was a good long day of wheelin'. I think we covered about 130 miles.

Headed to the butte in JV, to Buffalo springs (where we played with a Rattlesnake!), to the bomb holes at Means drylake, to the sand dunes and cyns of the Sledgehammer area. We did the first section of the "Jackhammer" trail. GNARLY!!! there is a waterfall there that is insane! My camera was being a ***** all day so I dont have many good shots- hopefully the guys will post up some pics. From JH we hit the big sand dunes which were a BLAST!!!. Then headed towards Giant Rock. On the way we played on a very tall hairy dune where the SC Rubi kicked ass!!! Then over to Giant Rock for some lunch. Then to the Integretron (weird alien building), then up to Pioneere Town for some cool sodas.

Shot over to the top of Rattlesnake cyn and down towards the desert with a side trip into the top secret "Hundy" cyn and the imfamous waterfall there. I was totally impressed with everyones Rubicons and the drivers cajones!!! Every one made it. AWESOME! My TJ friends cannot make it.

What a Fantastic day! We had a good crew yesterday Thanks to everyone who showed up! It was great meeting Socalrubi (Richard and Melissa).



I didnt get alot of great pics, but hopefully the others will post some.

Cool, post up some of those pics, couldn't quite tell the species from the one shot

hmm, I'm working today so lets see, by lunch I've only handled 8 rattlesnakes, 2 cobras (one 14' King & 1 red spitter) and 1 green mamba. Pretty light day so far

Pix Anyone?

The sun was setting but we had just enough time to to go Hundy's secret water fall place of torture....


Of which I didn't get many pictures because I was taking video that I hope to put on You Tube and put a link here....But We all made it except Billy in his little Toyota, but it wasn't for a valiant effort, even with trying to make a ramp....


But he triumphed in the end....he just went around and went up a BIGGER hill.....


We Wheeled until the cows came home.....


And the Dogs were tired...


But we had such a GREAT time! Richard and I really enjoyed our day with our new friends.

Did anyone lose this?

Oh yeah, We didn't get home until after 11pm last night, so this morning I woke up and found this on my JEEP!!!!!!!!!!

Did anyone lose this big dent and rip and want it back???


Or maybe this one??

beautiful little female speckled rattlesnake (Crotalus mitchelli)!

that first exhaust tip/rear bumper mod looks exactly like my first mod at Katemcy rocks
and then the pic with the bumper corner folded looks like my 2nd k-rocks mod, the rock rash on the rim looks familiar too

that looks like an incredible set of trails
so whats the deal with the space station thing? Observatory?
someday I'll have to make the trek out from Texas and play out there!

Heres a few pics. I was having too much fun at the dunes and didn't take any pics. I know Woods shot some video, hopefully he puts it up on youtube.

sweet, cool vids! Thanks for taking the time to put them up.

The first one was about the 4th time I tried to make it up that ledge and I was trying to bump it up - but it looks like I ended up way too heavy on the throttle. I'm lucky I didn't break something with that wheel hop.
