Went out to chiva again today with Ansel and John and had a blast. Jim, thanks so much for the trasharoo, it was put to good use. I rolled up the straps in the window and it worked great. We stuffed it full of trash we found on the trail and back at chiva pools. It's really depressing to see such a beautiful place being trashed by hooligans.

Ansel must have slipped in this one Laughing


This was my yield





We played in the pools for a bit, it had rained up there and the water was flowing a bit











Here is John going up ambulance run which I believe is the line referred to as the "Jeebus only" line. He was o-o so he slipped around a bit but eventually made it up








And finally, I got a little more ballsy today and went UP the chute. I made it but not without a few failed attempts, armor damage and skidmarks on the new seats Laughing




here's the first of two major obstacles on this line



Second obstacle.





Just a hair off camber Laughing



Up and over! look at that rear axle flex though Shocked





failure Embarassed





The chute



The only damage that I got was on my slider I scraped the crap out of it and bent it upwards alittle but my door still opens!



sorry for the overwhelming amount of pics

Edit: The small pictures of the pools are actually videos. If you click on them it directs you to my photobucket and plays the video

I'm glad to see that Trasharoo is still doing community service. It's easier if you put a trashbag in it. (Plus it get's less stinky)(

I hope your rear bumper build ditches that low dangle, rock magnet hitch receiver. You're with a few bolts of a freakin' awesome departure angle.

Do you have any tire rub in the front wheel well with full turn and full stuff?
