Mullan Run - Lower Compressor

Finally got the head out with the North Idaho Trail Blazers this weekend on their last run of the year. I've been at a loss for places to wheel since moving up here so this was a great opportunity. Since I'm in a sling from my shoulder surgery I rode along with BlackhawkJK and Spokalu. Met up with another one of their friends, Tom and we were off at 6:00 AM. Met up with a few other Jeepers in Mullan and aired down ready for the trip. I'd never seen any reports or pictures of this run so I had no idea what to expect.



Once we hit the creek bed and the trail essentially disappeared I knew this run was going to be fun.











The farthest we got before the crew I rolled with had to turn back.



The "road" ahead.



Mild and medium carnage along the way. One TJ hit a log too hard and snapped the spindle on his tire carrier.



Just left it to pick up on the way back.



An old CJ with an equally old D44 snapped an axle and had no replacement. He was at the front of the pack so we were delayed a couple hours while they redneck-rigged a solution.



Don't know if you can see it (my camera broke so I didn't get any good photos of it), but they chained a log to the axle housing and "snowmobiled" back down the trail.



Thanks to Sean (BlackhawkJK) and Shane (Spokalu) for carting my *** around for the day. Met some good people and had a great time. I'm exceedingly jealous and can't wait to recover and take my own Jeep out next time. Hopefully all the way to the top.

There were definitely alot of them for sure, but no one punctured anything while we were there. The closest it got was the XJ in the last pic momentarily popped his bead while moving into that position. Big gush of air then the bead reseated.

It was. Challenging too. The constant snow along with the rushing creek made the rocks and logs super slick. Definitely took precise use of the skinny pedal to advance in most cases. Though the silver JKU was running on 37s and made the whole thing look easy. I can only hope to go on it with my own rig soon, hopefully all the way too.
