Just checked my travel schedule and I won't be getting home until the morning of the 20th so I'm out.

Luckily, that's my last travel weekend for the year so hopefully I get get out with you guys more often after that.

Might get a chance to try out my New Winch on the 'Bumper Eater'



An example of some of the stuff you'll be dealing with.








With a good crew, good spotting, and careful obstacle negotiation - you can do this trail. This trail should be on everyone's bucket list. It's probably in the top 5 for Arizona.

the area around Bumper Eater is nearly unrecognizable, last time we were out there all the dirt was gone, the "canyon" had been scoured down bare rock, whole new world of pain in there now. Fun, but still pain.

Sorry but we aren't going to be able to try out our skidplates on this run Ken. Just decided to go back home for Thanksgiving and are leaving this weekend.

Have a great clean up and run on Sunday.
