China Wall 3-13-11

jimgrms, my fried Wacky and I had some fun on China Wall today, along with some real cool folks from over at CoJeeps.net

As many of you know, China Wall, while never "gnarly" had the displeasure of being "improved" by the USFS a couple of years ago, which to their mind meant draging a grader over it... only a couple rocky sections remain, but all in all it is a good time when breakage is not something you want to risk...

Wacky in the "rock garden" ('03 Rubi on 35" Trepadors/Clayton):



jimgrms -- I'm betting this is his new screensaver/avatar:



my WJ's virgin trip off the pavement:




a bit of trimming/bumpstopping left to do, but she flexes out pretty damn well:



Cool dude we met on the trail - "chericon" over a cojeeps:


couple of vids (not particularly thrilling...)



Had some fun stuck in a cattle drive on the way back to Hwy 24 on the Tarryall road... those silly bovines just didn't want to move!





Thanks to all, a good time was had!

I damn near called in "sick" for tonight for this..... just too much going on and I don't need anymore negative attention from the brass......

Looks like you guys had a really nice fun run. The WJ's look to be working well.
