    Default New Years day run. (Schubarth loop)



    Just wanted to thank everyone who came out. I'm home but very exhausted, so if anyone has the energy to post pics, please take the lead. Just want to say what a perfect day. Cheers!

    You nailed it, absolutely perfect. Great way to kick off the year, I think that may be the most scenic trail I have ever been on. Felt prehistoric almost, gave me the same feeling seeing the redwoods in California gave me.

    I'm really looking forward to seeing the redwoods. It was fun seeing you maneuver your rig the way you did on that rock. Pretty scetchy.

    Had a great day out, thanks for organizing David.

    We entered from the west, ran the loop CCW, went down and back on the spur, then finished up the loop and out.

    I ended up needing a couple pulls (one actually needed, one the result of a newbie mistake lol), thanks to Shane for those. Other than that none of us had any issues, didn't even break out the chains. I'm hoping Aaron might have some video of my daring attempt that required the first pull

    We were above the Air Force Academy at the end of the spur.

    Well I'm not Aaron but I do have a video of it on my iPhone. I went to upload it but it looks like I'm required to get it into YouTube or whatever first. I'm not much of a social media kinda guy.

    I also had a great time with all you guys (and Emily) today and hope to do some more trails with everyone. Thanks David for organizing it.

    This site doesn't play well with iPhone's unfortunately. Some days I spend the effort to rotate the pictures and resize them, but don't have that in me today but here is the what I have in an iCloud album. Hopefully that works for people. https://www.icloud.com/sharedalbum/#B0gGrq0zwGDK0If I do have a few second short video of you attempting that climb. Those sway bars are doing their job for sure, just not a job you wanted done.

    True that. I'm hoping to have the front sway bar quick disconnects installed before I go wheelin again. But first they have to come in the mail...

    I need some myself. Nobody actually makes them for my rig, but I'm thinking maybe I just drill the end out and add a pin. That or just pull them when I want to with an impact.

    Looks like a nice day. Certainly more fun than the hours I spent swearing at rivnuts.

    I actually think rivnuts are pretty cool, but yeah, this was better.

    So these are a few pictures I managed to take. I really enjoy this trail and hope it never closes. But if you saw all the tracks off trail you would agree a few A-holes can spoil things for everyone. Just can't wrap my head around such idiots.

    Anyways what a terrific trail.

    Was a lot of fun with everyone today!

    We even recruited a new member who we met on the trail.

    Here's the video I captured.







    Already looking forward to the next one boys!

    I recently adjusted my swingouts so they would close easier. Looks like I made them open easier too.
