Gulches is always a good time. Lots of butt puckering. Some carnage. Rain held off long enough thankfully.

We'll blame it on Toyotas lack of a factory ATRAC hack on the early 07's!

A CB conversation I remember from today.

Brian:"Do you guys want to do Rebel Blvd?"
Nick:"I'm game"
Chris or Adam:"Can I (relatively stock FJ) do it?
Brian:"Sure,..I think so."

and so it began................. affraid

It was definitely a bit hairier than the last time we did it. All the rain they've had over the past month or so has definitely changed the difficulty levels.

Yeah, It may have been a double black in the past, but it was a skull& crossbones today. It was good for Adrienne's spiritual journey. She was praying a whole lot. And says she will never go back to the Gulches.

I don't quite remember but I think Southeast Overland sells them. They are kind of local up that way. They are the 'Oasis Trailhead' brand ones. I don't remember which specific ones they are either. They have like 5-20 psi and 15-40. I think I get the latter.

I had a great time, didn't break anything or get any body damage so that is always a plus!

I am ready to go back for a FULL day. I really wanted to do Radical Ravine
