Yea, yea, yea, Im not gonna lie, that 3 hrs of sleep I got before the trip really affected my decision making skills and my ability to turn passenger instead of driver when told to turn passenger.

There are things I'll change when I find the time, but I must have done something right while building it. Its always done well on the trail and it rarely gives me trouble. It apparently likes to wait until Moab to break down but even the issues it's had were rather easily fixed either on trail or at the campground that evening. It must be the white paint.

Mhmm. Something about the big rock at the base of obstacle 1, the sideways slope toward the rock and just how soft/dug out it was... It was pretty much impossible to keep the rear of the vehicles high enough to avoid it. It seemed worse than last year when I ran the trail.

Re: Spring creek 6-19!

Looks like a lot of fun you guys had. I miss spring creek.

Do not know if I am going to get back there this year.

As Yella was saying looks like a lot of the rocks are all dug out.

The "Slab", "The Wall", or the pre-Spring Creek Obstacle as some say, looks pretty dug out around the big rock. Then the second actual obstacle before the Rock Garden looks to be dug out pretty good as well.

Did you guys go up then back down or did you go down Cascade or Saxon Rd.?
