Carnage at Corrral Canyon
So we decided to make a quick run out to Corral Canyon today, two TJ's, for some fun in the dirt. Did Sidewinder, lots of fun, did Bronco Peak, had a blast, feeling invincible, life is good.
Then we saw this sign that said something about extreme rockcrawling, Danger Will Robinson, Danger. Yeah sure, whatever and yeah, the map at the trail head says not recommended, etc etc, but hey, what could be so bad?? We just did every trail out here in both directions but this one, no problem, testosterone rules!!! Go for it.
So what could be so bad?? Well, how about smacking a hole in a rear differential? Or maybe winching out over the rocks for four hours. Or various bashes, dent, scrapes. Or, for the grand finale, sliding off a rock and rolling mine? Very glad that a tree was right there, sorta. It did save me from going all the way over and down to the bottom by a faster route than I wanted. But it sure hurt. Nice scar though.
All in all, a great day wheelin, and d@mn it IS dirty out there, and hotter than... Oh, and to add insult to injury, it started raining just as we limped to the end of the trail. I haven't been that dirty in years.
D@mn that was a fun day. Wrenching time tomorrow and get ready for the next trip.
