Sierra Chapter Deer Valley 2009 Trip Report

It was great to meet all of the new folks and great to meet some new ones.

I believe we ended up with just over 20 Rigs. Started the trail around 9 and the last of the group got off the trail around 6. Not a bad day at all. The weather was perfect.

I am still un packing the Jeep. I will post the few pix I have later and post up some more details.

Again - AWESOME TRIP folks.....

Thanks for putting on this run Mark and cooking up some killer food. My friends and I had a great time, will post pics when I get them from them. Good times seeing old faces and meeting a lot of new ones.

Only minor carnage for my rig: bent tie rod and broken rear shock.

Awesome run guys. Mark, thanks for all the food, and thanks to everyone for the spotting. (Plus Eric Ed and Dave for the rock stacking). I'll get some pics up soon.

Re: Sierra Chapter Deer Valley 2009 Trip Report

Thanks to the cooks for making me some awesome food! Best I have eaten on the trail by far.



Nice to meet some new people, and hang out with people I hadnt seen in awhile.


Only damage we had was a broken Alloy USA Ujoint. Not sure how it happened, especially on 32s unlocked. Oh well.

Re: Sierra Chapter Deer Valley 2009 Trip Report

While we didn't actually run with you guys (we didn't hit the trail until 11:30) it was real nice seeing all those XJ's. In case anyone is interested I was the red XJ at Deer Creek crossing when you guys were on your way back through. My bud with his green XJ and a white TJ was there with me.

I look forward to actually wheelin with the group on a run in the future. On that note, we are running Strawberry on 11 July with a couple of stock FJ's.

Re: Sierra Chapter Deer Valley 2009 Trip Report

Looks like a great time! It's a good thing I couldn't make it. I went to Hollister on Saturday and broke down on the way home. Might be the camshaft position sensor.

What are the specs on the White XJ with the white dog in it? Wondering how it did on those trails as it doesn't *look* too built in the pics, but might have lockers or something. Nice dog BTW!

Any pictures of the "GateKeeper" on Deer Valley (first obstacle I believe)? That was the one spot I don't know if my XJ would make it without some assistance.

I dont remember offhand, but I know it was open/open.


There were a couple of rigs that were on ~3'' of lift and open/open, and they all did awesome. All the drivers did very good, and most never needed any spotting.
