Sorry for the huge pics. Forgot to resize. Sorry guys.


The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!

YSB must be pretty upset today that another one of his favorite band members died. But hey, at least he returned to disco.

There is plenty of space next to the creek for a few camping spots. The trail was very easy, I only put it in 4h so I could disco the sway bar. Other then that I don't think that I really needed 4wd anywhere. Heck the wife got out and did some trail running for a little over 2 miles. I felt sorry for her though, her shoe got wet when she went after my daughter once. I guess wet socks and running is not a good thing because she started to get a little blister from her sock.

Hiked Mary Jane on Friday and drove out to Carpenters Canyon today, then the wife asks me "So what are we doing tomorrow"
Carpenter canyon is a great camping spot, and in the summer is 2wd friendly.

I did all but a 50 yard section in 2wd this winter. That's only because the snow had been driven on and was compacted to ice almost.

Jeebus though, 190 miles is long.

Yeah, I live all the way in the northwest corner of town (Durango/95). It would actually be about 15 miles less because I came back on 95. Time wise it is about the same, but it was a little bit longer.

one thing this did show me... if I do take the kids camping next to water I might as well bring a pressure washer to get them clean. They looked like some trailer babies by the time we headed out. I was waiting for my son to start calling me pah... YO PAH you got any more of that skoal left

How is the trail to Carpenter Canyon? Is it mile after mile of washboard?

It is a good fireroad, no real washboarding. Not a road that you are going to be cruising down @ 40mph. It is a 2wd road like Andrew said.

When the feelings gone and you can't go on, it's tragedy.

First Donna Summer now a Bee Gee. It could only get worse if Cher died.

YSP Andrew = Doc... maybe if you ever read past the first line of a post and looked at his signature.


Not sure on the GPS, but right as you get to Pahrump it is on the right. There is a sign and if you go past the racetrack you went too far. The trail does go by the BLM fire station if that helps any.

I met him once. I'm sure I knew his name from that, but I'm having memory issues again. Andrew seems so formal. Not Andy or Drew?

Here's how messed up my head is. After dinner last night, I started making dinner. Good thing is dinner for tonight is already prepped.

I've been by the fire station out there on my way to Trout Creek, but never made it to the creek because of the washboard. I might give it a try tomorrow. I need to escape the heat. I'll check Davidson's site for coordinates.
