Grotto


 Powered by Max Banner Ads 

This is a very muddy trail on Slyvester road. The mud changes all the time. Sometimes it is soupy and sometimes it is drier. The other challenge is the trees. The sharp and pointy branches are like spears that could go through soft tops. It is a popular trail for all sorts of wheelers. It is quite possible to find audience there everytime.

 

Lower Fuct

This trail is probably one of the most technical trails in BC. It has 3 levels. From easiest to hardest, they are called Lower Fuct, Upper Fuct and Blue Balls. In this video me and evdog are going through the lower fuct. It is not very long but it knarly. The body damage is unavoidable. It is considered that if you didnt pull your winch line, you had a very good day on this trail. I definitely want to go back and finish it without pulling my winch line.

Splash and Snow

In this video, we were wheeling in 3 different locations in 3 different days. First area is the Jan 1st, 2014 wheeling in East Harrison. We were having fun in the water. Making some splashes. The second area was Stave lake area up Slyvester Road. This old sunken forest looks very spooky. Having it covered with snow was even spookier. The third area is Eagle Mountain. This trail is hard enough without snow. It was harder with snow. I got stuck once and had to winch myself out. Dave didnt get stuck at all. We both made it to lookout.

Death Valley 2014

When the wind storm hit our camp site and knocked down our tents in Moab, we decided to continue our journey towards death valley.  It was a huge temperature change from Moab to Death Valley.  This place looks totally like a different planet.  The first day we went and explored Titus Valley.  Lots of norrow passages.  The second day, we explored Scotty’s Castle and Race track.  Everybody who goes to Death Valley should see Scotty’s Castle. This big mension in the middle of nowhere.  Self sufficient in this extremely deadly environment. And amazing story of a con artist. Race track is full with mysteries.  The name comes from these racing rocks.  Nobody knows how they move and leave these tracks. Well up until we met the scientists who were trying to solve this mystery.  They were doing some research with their satellite gear when we were there.  They told us that they have an answer to this mystery and they will publish it in 3 months time. The third and last day, Dave and I decided to go find Charles Manson’s hiding place.  We got good instructions from another camper and after getting lost a few times, we found the place. It was called Barker Ranch.  Luckily when we got lost, we found 2 or 3 mine sites full with old machinery.  On the way back to campsite we walked the sand dunes. This is a place I would love to go back and explore more.

Moab 2014 – Golden Spike

As we got further into trail, the scenery got better and better. At the same time, the rocks and waterfalls, and the ledges got steeper and higher. The fun was at its highest level in terms of jeeping. I cant wait to go back to Moab :) One of the awesome part of this  trail was to see Dillon in his rescue green jeep tackling every obstacle. He doesnt have the lockers or gears we have but choosing the right lines and his driving skills did the job for him. Kudos to him and wait to see him going over Golden Crack in the next episode.

 

Installing an Onboard Air System from VIAIR

Last weekend I installed Viair OBA in my jeep. This system is really fast. I could use air tools and air horn with it.  I could also use it for air lockers but I have a rubicon wrangler. It comes with electric lockers.  It is also extremely fast to air the tires up.

Moab 2014 – Part 3 Poison Spider & Gold Bar Rim

This is one of the most popular trails in Moab and is often combined with Golden Spike and Gold Bar Rim. Poison Spider Mesa is a fun-filled combination of challenging obstacles and incredible scenery. We were driving with caution through difficult, huge, awkward ledges and many tippy spots. This trail requires modified vehicles with very high ground clearance, lockers, large tires and good articulation. Route-finding on loop portion of trail is very challenging. We followed the painted Jeep symbols.

Moab 2014 – Part 2 – Elephant Hill

This is the second day of our trip. Elephant hill area is 75 miles each way from Moab village. But it is worth for the scenery. The confluence where Colorado and Green rivers meet and The Crack Canyon have the most amazing views. There is a quite a long dry sandy creek bed drive on the trail. That’s when we tried some rally style driving. There are some sections we drove through tight squeeze between rocks and sometimes even under rocks. I should say for the scenery and fun, Elephant Hill topped all the trails we drove in Moab.
