Anywho, got up at 4am this morning to get on the road and this is how far we've gotten so far with no naps yet! Maybe we're getting a little delrious, but we did just get mooned by a grizzly bear! And I just maybe got video of it...............    :P ;D   I have no idea what may happen next but I'm sure it'll be pretty interesting. lol!

The Eisenhower Tunnel (officially Eisenhower–Johnson Memorial Tunnel) is a dual-bore vehicular tunnel located on Interstate 70 approximately 60 mi (97 km) west of Denver, Colorado. The tunnel was built under the Continental Divide, and at a maximum elevation of 11,158 ft (3,401 m) above sea level, it is one of the highest vehicular tunnels in the world. It is also the longest mountain tunnel built under the Interstate highway program, the highest point on the Interstate Highway system, and one of the last major pieces of the system to be completed. The westbound bore is named after U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower, for whom the Interstate system is also named. The eastbound bore is named for Edwin C. Johnson, a former governor and U.S. Senator who lobbied for an Interstate Highway to be built across Colorado.

I also have really, really cool video of the whole beginning of Hell's Revenge and of everyone else doing Hell's Gate, but apparently YouTube has a 10min limit that I've never paid attention to before and I don't have time to figure out how to cut them into smaller segments. So. Maybe later tonight. Off to get more videos for you. BTW, I'll try to upload them with my phone. So, maybe see you soon.   ;) ;D

We did Behind the Rocks yesterday. And this is actually closer to the end of the day. This hill was called Hummer Hill and the videos just don't do anything justice. Don't mind me.... I get a little nervous. Especially since the last thing I want to see anything happen to is Bill's jeep....  ;)  lol    Sheewww!   ;D  Anyone else can roll over if they want!  ;)

So, this is Bill and then Max & I going up it.

Okay I just woke up....  whew exhausted!!!!  so yesterday we did the Crawl magazine media run. They did 2 groups we did the trail Greenday and Jon and Josh lead the Upper Helldorado trail.  When we got done we went looking for Josh and Jon and they went back to the condo.  So Ben, Tripp and Myself decided to do Upper Helldorado.  Well there were a couple groups in front of us and we had a lil carnage, Tripps rag joint and my winchline got cut and broke.  Yesterday was the best day yet I my opinion, I've wanted to do Upper Helldorado everytime I've been here.  And I did it on a "bolt on" Rubicon Express lift kit.   ;D  Ben and Josh idled through the entire trail Tripp and myself had a lil carnage but finished the trail with no problem.  Not sure what we're doing today yet we'll keep ya posted.  Thanks for following I'm glad you all are enjoying it.

here are some video from the greenday trail.

So I didn't see anything posted up about Josh making the waterfall unassisted...

AAANNDDDD..... The finale of last night. Everyone had their winch out to keep the front end down because it was just us and we didn't really know what to expect, but I would say everyone's rigs did most of it on their own! And luckily Josh came to find us since he had been on the trail earlier in the day he knew what lines to take. Thank you Josh!!!    lol

I'm pretty sure Ben runs 5.29's.  It's that 4 speed Atlas that makes him crawl so slow.  If you put it in Low Low, it acts like a "doubler" set up and makes the ratio almost 10:1.  Creepin'!!

I call BS!

I've seen what it takes to climb it without a winch and no one even came close to hitting it that hard.

And yes I'm jealous that I'm not there but that is beside the point.

Now go back and climb it in the daylight so we can see the video clearly without the winch (suckdown winching is ok).

Tripp has enough WB to make it happen.

After we took the rear axle apart and pulled what was left of the pinion out, it was starting to get dark and this trail wasen't getting any easier.  I towed Alex ALL the way out with the retro rebuild.   lol!!!!!!!!!!  Alex did drive alot of the trail in front wheel drive.


I just realized we did video with 2 cameras before the batteries died on the 1st one.  I'll add some videos from the start of the trail in a little bit and the end from dennys.  We were on the trail for 10-11 hrs. yesterday and I'm still whooped.

Well, I've been watching Alex's progress a lot, because we have the same setup.  I was feeling pretty confident that my Jeep could handle the rigors of Moab pretty well, until he breaks the pinion.  Of course, his pinion is from the dealership and mine is more heavy duty, but it still makes me nervous.  I hope it was just operator error!  Alex, looks like you have a pretty good case for those 60's you been aching for!  I hope you get to wheel again this week!

Hey everybody! Here's some more of the video. This is of trying to keep up with Bill the other day. He's just floatin' over the hills and we're bruising our ribs....

Attempting to keep up (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H4pTL5Cfq4A#)

This is Craig and Sarah from Indiana that we just so happened to run into out here and they were nice enough to show us around the Rusty Nail, Gold Bar Rim, Golden Spike area the other day.  :)

Untitled (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NxXVG_cn4_U#)

And here's Max taking a little bit of vacation time....   ;D  We had to hang out on the top of this mesa kinda thing for about an hour to wait for the jamboree to leave the area we wanted to go to, so I pulled out the kite and the jetboil to make a little ramen noodles.  ;)

And these are from the end of the day. We got to Denny's around midnight and grubbed!

I can't believe they even let that crew of miscreants in the door.  Pockets, you are a saint for putting up with them.  Haha!

Deeeeewaine's rig looks like it's working great out there.  Pimpin' over those rocks!!

What's the status on Alex and Anna's rig?  Still in front wheel drive?

I've really enjoyed digitally travelling with you guys.  I appreciate all of the fun entertainment at work!  I'll be on the trailer next year, for sure.

WOW! So.... Did Prichett Canyon yesterday. Didn't get home til 5am. 7am Louisville time. UGH. Sooo tired. Just now probably 150 miles from Denver. I'm gonna start working on all of the pics and videos for you. But, I'll leave the whole long story for Max to tell you. In the meantime, here's a teaser. This is a pic of Dewaine's Jeep, Ben's Jeep and Max's Jeep winching a Slowyota  with a broken t-case input up a 50ft rock wall last night.

Ummmm..... Excuse me!  Who do you think does the cooking around here??? Yeah. First of all, I was smart enough to put the jetboil inside the Jeep to keep it away from the wind. And anyway, my spiffy little jetboil boils water in the blink of an eye.   ;)  Altitude schmaltitude.

Had a great time  ;D with everyone in Moab testing out the Ghost Rider (Tomb Raider).  It will be even better as the tires break-in and become more sticky.  Speacial thanks to Max on the build as well to all those who helped (building, spotting, standing on the front bumper to keep front end down, etc...).

See you wheelin'

 Gezzz what an attitude.  :P

 OK, so you boiled a cup full of water out of the wind. Good thing it didn't tip over or you'd been pissing in the JeeP trying to put it out.  :o  ;D
