Trip report - page 1:
On Monday, April 17th, we ran Pritchett Canyon.
We had 10 trucks, all Unimogs except one.
Here, at the beginning of Pritchett Canyon, is the first
obstacle. This shelf is a pretty good drop-off, and can be very tippy.
We all pitched in to help pile some rocks up to help even things out.
Kai's MooMog led the way.
Rob sizes up the drop-off, with plenty of good spottng.
Rob makes the drop. Each Mog scattered the rocks we had piled up, so we had to keep restacking the rocks.
Bill C. lines up, with Kai spotting. Kai did an enormous amount of work,
as usual, making sure everyone made it through the obstacles.
Bill always makes the tough spots look easy. The crawler gears do help.
The rest of the group awaits their turn.
Bob's MogLite heads on up the trail.
Bill G. did very well on this trail.
Dan J. heads around the rock to the drop-off,
and makes it down OK. Dan is running 16.5 rims with Super Swampers.
Kent also makes a clean run.
John on the drop, another Unimog with Super Swampers.
And finally, Ron D.'s VLF. Being the only Unimog on the
trail with a box made me a little nervous...
Once we were down in the bottom of the canyon, we encountered a few
steep climbs. Rob tackles this one with his Turbo Diesel Mog.
and Bill C's U1300 made it up easily.
John also cleared it, with the help of a strategically placed rock.
