The Fordyce Creek trail is only about 10 miles long, but it's supposed to be more difficult than the Dusy Ershim. http://www.alltrails.com/trail/us/ca...reek-4x4-trail I was invited to run it with a group from San Diego, but they told me that the chance of some body damage was high. Since my Jeep is not a basher, I declined the offer. Lots of other great places to wheel.

Not bored at all. Great photos. The timeline in Photobucket is reversed. Once I realized that, I went to the last photo and used the Left arrow. Looks like the Saltas's picked up a little rock rash along the way. What tire pressure were you running and who bought pink Maxtrax Running the Dusy-Ershim trail kind of grows on you. At first, you're just happy to have reached the end (survived) of the trail. As time goes on, you grow to appreciate what a great trail it is and what an epic adventure it was.

Lol like those pink Barbie traxs lol. I scored a deal on them on a close out like $85 so I figured wth lol. I ran 14psi yes a little rash but I found ace bbq paint matches perfectly and now they look new again. If it were say 500 miles away I might consider it again but it is too far to go back. I'm glad it's off the bucket list tho. It really makes me appreciate how tough jeeps are tho. Do that trail jump on the interstate at 80mph for 1200 miles and smooth as silk. I tell you and bob will too, my r/t's are boss on that type of terrain. Only way they would have been better is if they were 37's. Thanks for the trip advice it was very useful. Hey we got to meet Eddie from way a life and he is a stuck up twerp. Stayed right next to me at the motel and would not acknowledge me if two feet away in the parking lot. We were done with trail and unloading mine and bobs only rigs in the lot he parks way away and does not even look at me when he has to walk by as I'm unloading it was obvious we were just getting off the trail. I won't watch his videos again

Crap I see what you mean I loaded them in the wrong order. You can view oldest to newest but I can't seem to change it to auto load that way.
