Barring unforeseen events, I'm planning on running rocky gap from the red rock side Sunday morning with a shoot on the pahrump side after the trail.
Yep, comes out in Lovell Canyon, though most run it backwards to avoid the entry fees.

Yeah, I know, but my situation on Sunday will require me to run that way. My dad and his new GF may meet me on the back side to shoot, and his vehicle won't make it through rocky gap. If he decides not to meet up, I may change and run backwards too. Will just shoot before the trail is all.

Yeah, I was wondering who all would pick up on that!? It's a bit of an issue for me! He's been pushing for me to meet her, and I told him I thought it was too soon for me seeing as it hasn't even been three months, and he flipped out and made some seriously effed up threat about eliminating my family from his life! My wife and I have decided to just meet this person to try an get a sense of what her possible motives may be. I've mostly accepted the role he will be playing in my family moving forward. It's a huge, effed up situation that requires a tremendous amount of backstory. He's a stepfather, so that can provide a diving off point for where the story goes.

Still having a very tough time with everything, and this whole scene has just made it that much worse...

Was thinking about it, but no one wants to join. Doubt I'll be able to make it to wheeler in time too. My morning has been pre-planned for me! Family sucks sometimes when you have a truck and trailer!

I went through rocky gap today. Lots of snow at the summit. went in through red rock, and should have turned around where the tracks stopped! It was super easy to the point where we all stopped last time, and just got crappy in the rock garden. Someone came up the Pahrump side and turned around right before the summit. I though I would be fine if I just followed the tracks. WRONG! had a couple of hard hits in one section of the washes, and for the most part did ok after that. Until i found the one off camber climb! it leans toward a nice part of the ditch, and was mostly stuck in it for a few minutes. I was finally able to get out of the wash, and get enough momentum to climb up and out of the wash. There were several times where I was seriously sweating it, and I had the windows open! ROFL. Got some probably good video, would have been better if I had pushed record on the second camera before the rocks. D'OH! I'll be working on the edit and hopefully have it posted tonight. It's gonna be embarrassing for me though. Killed the engine a few times, and was just a complete NOOB in the ditch.
