Jeebus, lets do this during the week so I can come along. I did Chiva about a year ago. Good times.

No more video is needed. It's been well documented. Shocked

What you should be hoping for is video proof that you can drive Three Feathers safely and correctly once The Divine Mr. Bus gets done with the stick lessons. Cool

I am off on Tue, Wed, and Thur. I have to get up at 0200 am to go to work so night runs unless I am off are out for me. Thanks for trying to work with me on this. I do need to get out more.

Went into the GAP today, was dry and nice entering and coming back out and it was wet and slippery!! Had some pucker moments for sure.

The trail was smooth for the most part but I can say it gets slick when wet!! I go pretty slow.....as some of you know and in the stocker I only hit the front skid a few times scraped a wing on an obstacle. A slight lift and better tires on a stock FJ will make this trail super fun!!!

Sun, wind, rain and big hail stones.....

No went to close an area that has some mines and we turned around. It was raining and hailing pretty damn hard. The major worry was me getting out. Turns out a Jeep was the major project getting out. They slipped off a rock and got turned side ways. He was close to going over. Took us about 30-45 minutes to get him turned and heading the right direction. Glad it was not me!!!

This guy was great and helped me pick the some good lines and his passenger had my camara for the pics that were taken of me in the FJ.

I was with 3 Jeeps and a Taco. A group of guys from work....I recruited a new AZFJ member also. He did not bring his FJ, he was shot gun in the Jeep in the pictures.

This is the same place as the last two pics in my post above.
