The sand was awesome, and I could barely keep up with him. Clgielin was rocking it baja style for several miles. I didnt see any tread in the sand, just ruts where he had been drifting sideways with the throttle down.

That is my wife, she likes riding along, and even started driving this trip on Fin's and Things. The sand is a lot of fun. The last time I was on this stretch was with my YJ.

It may be time for a 'commuter' project mini truck desert racer. I was wishing for more air pressure and to have my sway bar reconnected in every corner. Who knows what I would have done with the park ranger's Raptor...

Yeah, I don't think she realizes what a cool truck she has. It would have been a blast to drive that Raptor through the wash.

I will start working on video tonight.

We should all plan a camping trip in Moab in the spring. We could stay up in the Sand Flatts area just off of Fins N Things or Hells Revenge. You would love driving your jeep on both of those trails.

That would be really fun. With all the stuff I've done to the Jeep recently, I really want to add Moab to the repertoire. haha
