Uh....I didn't use 4wd if that explains the difficulty level?

That's assuming you're going up from pahrump. If you go up from the other side you'd likely need 4wd but its just crummy bumpy rocky on that side not even bad.

Idaho isn't going to happen this weekend. I am now looking at heading up there next Thurs-Fri. Part of me really wants to do the trail tomorrow, another part of me is saying save the money. I really need to save for my lift just so that I can fix the suspension. When I do go, I'll be in Mt. Home/Boise area. What do you need picked up?

The wife and I are tentatively planning a run up carpenter canyon on Saturday morning. I'm told its "baby neck friendly" if taken slow. We will unhook and air down also(for babies) any recent knowledge? All are welcome to join. Will probably run up and have lunch up there and waste the day an come down later in afternoon.

Easy trail all the way up into the canyon. Expect to run into campers.

Had I seen this before we rolled, I would have waited. It was a great run.
