Anyone going past Sahara and the 215? I finally realized that if I park at the gas station someone will have to bring me back to the car and I would rather not make anyone go that far out of the way.

Dude it was nasty up there. Glad that I decided not to wait for you guys. I got to the area right before the wash before I decided to turn around. Something about a 10 ft drop while the snow covered trail was sloping towards it. Then on the way back I hit a bump and slid off the trail in one of the little run off areas. I tore the crap out of the trail just getting out. I doubt that anyone will be brave enough to drive past where I tore it up until the snow melts. I guess that I should have taken pictures, but I was just glad to get out.

I think the newer tires are what did it.

His name is Kiaco. Or Kiako. Goes by K. I don't know the actual spelling but I sounded it out.

Yup, first time I've used it. I thought it went pretty well. I was happy that it didn't pull my homemade bumper right off the front of my jeep.
