You can start the weekend with them and I'll see if my bud feels like coming out on a Sunday or Monday. Saturdays are normally a work day and it's a bit of a hassle to change my schedule. Can be done but it leaves me with one short and one long weekend and I hate the 1 day weekends. Will have me tired and worn down the whole week after. Also thinking about heading back to AZ the day after turkey day for some fun wheeling east of Phoenix.
Oh yeah one or two days this week will be spend at the hammers also, got to love vacation time

Around December I'm pretty free time wise. I don't know the CB's very well though, I've only been there once.

Still think you should do the North end, From Courtright reservoir it doesn't get good till Ershim lake. From Kaiser pass you can do 9 miles of continuous rockcrawling to Ershim lake, then either camp and relax for the night or turn around and head back, that'll give ya a rockcrawling fix that's good for a day or two

Well the Dusy is a pretty magical place. I'm used to wheeling in this area but this trail stands on it's own in regards to beauty. It wasn't the adrenaline filled day I thought I was hoping for, but it ended up being a day full of awesome scenery and endurance. We did 21 off road miles today. Most of them loose rocks and boulders. Our goal was to make it to Thompson hill (10 mile point) and we did. Thomson hill was the highlight of the wheeling. I don't know of another hill that long with that many loose boulders, rocks, trees and a decent angle. I shot a pretty cool video of it start to finish...... It's around 10min from bottom to top...... that's a LONG hill! Overall great day..... I'm VERY exhausted. Left at 5am, home at 830pm. Haha.... Oh yeah the Jeep did very well today. Seemed a little "creaky" than last trip. I think that means I need to do some maintenance / lubrication stuff.

Here's a few pics.... video is uploading. About 75% of my photos didn't come out because of shadows from the trees.... darn it.

















I had no idea I got my friend in this photo but I think it's a cool.

I love those lil pieces of log road, Dusy has beautifull scenery. We made it the first day there to East Lake about 4 years ago, then took 2 more days to finish it. For the better wheelin start from the other end Ershim lake is my favorite campground on the trail
