Yeah Ron's a crack up. He had me laughing my @ss off at Calico. When he started up Doran he says to me, hey that was pretty ruff should I turn around. I said nah there's to many jeeps behind you, besides it can't get much worse then that.

man I'm still surprised what that thing went through! (er... dragged through, I guess, haha!) It's bone stock, right?

I never knew if Ron was joking when he was talking, or if he was serious, funny dude

Hey Dave LCC is a easy trail, like they're saying lots of bypasses. Nightmare Gulch is new to me, I imagine it'll be just as easy though.

Nightmare is pretty easy, similar in that it has bypasses for most things. I think any jeep would make it through at least the bypasses, and probably most of the obstacles. Skylar did every obstacle (I think), open diffs on 33s.

I really like these trails, very pretty landscape.

Here's some of the fun parts on nightmare (all bypassable):

Yeah, never heard from Qewbawl after that trip. The Cherokee was like pulling a sled up those obstacles. I think he's lifted it a little since that trip.

I'm interested as well, but need to see if I can get out of whatever the wife has planned that weekend...

Put me down as a maybe, and I'll post back later.
