Chinnamans 4/16

Well no one has started a thread yet so I figure I would. What a great day. WOW! such a sweet trail and loved it. Cant believe how much fun I had and how crazy carnage looks! Day started at 7:20 for me to head on down to BV. took 2 hours. me and my brother aired down at the start right after the gate and headed up to meet with Matt, David, & Ben who spent the night on trail. First part of the trail was pretty easy for me. Had no problems and had alot of fun. But that wasent the case for my brother and his TJ. He had a 2" spacer lift with 33's open open, and man was it giving him some trouble. And his clutch was giving him problems to but with a little spotting from me and a little hitting his belly skid and new gas tank skid we were good to go and finaly made our way to the fork by the exit of carnage. Finaly met up with the other 3 and theres where the fun started. Well Ill let the pics do the rest of the talking!

cool pic with the jeeps


Ben on a cool part




David and Matt in the rock garden

Entrance sign!!!!


Turtle rock!


Well it turned out a great day and I already want to go back. I got to really test out the jeep with the lockers and gears and 35's and love them! No breakage from anyone. But we did catch up to the group that passed us and one guys shackle bolt broke and his axle moved forward a foot and he hit a rock stopping him. Spent some time helping him out to get off the trail ENded up using a u-bolt as the bolt and it got him off. Glad to help out a guy. David did some great spotting and hope to be back on the trails soon


And thats all

Re: Chinnamans 4/16

no one tryed the far left up on the rock pile. Matt came down it but thats it. And both ben adn matt did the far left on whales tail, but both had to take a strap. Matt had to because he was in a really bad spot. He couldent back up because he would fall into the crack and risk rolling, and when he would throttle it same thing! so we had to

Almost! Before the Jeapfreak clan got to the trail, we messed around on the rock pile for 45 minutes. I couldn't figure out what the heck you did after getting up on the big rock, we got hung up on the humps. I will try to get my photos uploaded soon.
