    Default Illinois Gulch 1-25-20



    We got out for a test run on the trucks this weekend. It had been quite a while since running this trail. Blew my mind how much Little Moab obstacle has rutted out. Managed to struggle our way through a line near the middle and made it fairly easy on both far left and far right lines. Great day out with the trail itself being mostly dry. some patches of ice in the shaded areas and a bit of snow off trail. Have some videos that I will try and get uploaded later this week, not very good vids as we struggled quite a bit on the obstacle and had to back up and try again several times.

    I saw you guys when you pulled up to little Moab, we were just heading home. I thought that was you. We met on Argentine pass a ways back.

    I thought that looked like your Jeep, we parked right next to you to wait for the obstacle to clear up.

    Yeah I was up helping spot a JK, I'm not equipped for something that hard. Wish I had the chance to talk but the group had a slow long day. We had a couple large vehicles with us and they were a little uncomfortable navigating the trails. But what a terrific day right?

    Managed to get a partial video of me on Little Moab. Video taken on phone so I am having difficulty getting it onto new computer. Missed climbing the first ledge but here is the second ledge near the middle.
