Walker Valley Trip Log

Okay so this was our staging area. One of the wheelers friends next door to the trails



So because I was all mad I didnt think to get pictures . But my XJ was just NOT running right at all. Died on me driving, had no power, was like UGH was a ****ty start. Then once we hit dirt I overheated. Turns out after I did the water pump I didnt properly burp the system and I didnt have enough water in it. After figuring it out and a small stop we were on our way again.

So now we are stopped again. Jeff in the trooper didnt air down and first and then decided to air down. Meanwhile the 4runner had loose valvecover bolts and was loosing some oil!



So onto some wheeling I was the first stuck of the day. Dropped my diff right onto a dirty rock mound. Could not pull off of it so I opted to get a tow back





Quick look at the guys im holding up lol



Here is the first real stuck of the day





Unpictured is the rock his front axle was on and he was totally stuck.

He was the first winch of the day



Get him out and he is stuck again



Then a little farther and wedges his pass front tire between two rocks and gets another winch

He backs out and goes around and here is a picture of the TJ starting into the spot where the XJ got stuck. You can see how perfectly the rocks are to get stuck on both ends





This is the rest of the way down the trail with a really large drop



Video of the TJ doing it



So after that we hit some main road and then found another trail.



Heading to this step up log to a small mud pond



I think this was after I just got up the step up

Yes, that boulder



Doing a little winching





Still got his door good







Beat the **** out of my rocker in the rear. Totally smashed



Coming up to the boulder













Short wheel base wrangler walks around it like it was just in its way







On the road again



Jason in the other XJ left at the next main road because he didnt trail his rig there and didnt want to get broke and stuck.

So we kept going and stopped in some pit



Just playing in the pit trying a gnarly hill

Small waterfall some Toyota buggy with rear steer did



Doesnt quite have the approach or departure angle



Trying to turn around the runner got all kinds of stuck








I hopped in while the owner highlifted



Unstuck and off we go. After that he had something he had to do in town and had to go. Left 3 of us.

TJ coming down after a hard down hill 90





I started into the muck and hit a hole and my drivers front just SANK into nothingness





TJ had to pull be backwards for the second time



Then we followed the trail down to a flat area to do a little BSing



After that it was getting late in the day and I think we were all getting hungry so I loaded up



And they aired up
