Mike opted to wait this one out as did I. He decided to roll his TJ up on the other side of Squeeze Rock and let me catch him in the act of being himself! Guilty as charged!
Dion went around the bypass and then ran it the in the usual direction, although he picked an unusual line. He made it through after we stacked a couple of rocks at this part of the rocks. The break over angle was too severe and he kept getting hung up on his exhaust cross over while his tires were hanging in the air. It was also close to the oil pan and we didn't even want to have that puppy start to leak!
Scott pulled his YJ up for a couple of quick shots as well. Scott is turning out to be a pretty capable driver. It will be fun to see him once he gets some lift under that YJ with some gearing and lockers.
It was around 2:30 PM or so and the sun was hot for sure, so we called it quits and headed out towards the highway. The rest of the wash was uneventful as we took advantage of the high rock walls which offered some occasional shade as we drove along.
Once out of the wash and back to the highway, we stopped to air up and for the TJs to reconnect their front sway bar. With that out of the way, I closed up the windows, turned on the A/C, and had a nice drive back into town. Another adventure had come and gone. We didn't find that new trail we were hoping for, but we did find a couple of shortcut sections that can be put to good use when the need arises. The next time out, maybe we will start at the North end of the area and work our way South.
Hope to see you all out on the trail and remember to TREAD Lightly!
