Me and my co-worker hit up a trail we've read alot about. Its called Slickrock Road, but its no road. Its a forest route, and only about 3.5miles one way. We had a great time, did the trail in one direction, camped and came back Sunday. Im real pleased at how the Toyota handled, cant wait to do it again with lower t-case gears.


Hope you have 24min to kill, here's the video link :)

The trip was great! The drive from Sacramento is alittle long, roughly 2.5hrs each way. However, I think it was well worth it.

I have time to kill, but don't want to go over my download limit and have 64k for a week. But by the looks of the pictures it looks fun.

So I finally got the 35mm shots and scanned them into the PC. And I took the 24min video and cut it down to two shorter video's. One video is footage of just me, and the other video is footage of my buddy:

ME:
Buddy:

Here are the shots his GF took with the disposable camera:

My buddies Girlfriend is too affraid to take her Digital out into the woods... so she usually brings 2 or 3 disposable camera's.

I bought the truck with the shocks setup like that. I guess I cant complain. In that pic you quoted, I backed into the water. Then put the truck in 2WD and dumped the clutch :) I am sitting in sand, and I knew exactly what was going to happen. After having alittle fun, I put the truck back into 4WD Low and then the front started to dig. After alittle fancy clutchwork, i was able to walk out of the hole.

Was still a blast.

If you wanna check out the clips on YouTube, you can find them under my screen name:

Thanks for the compliments. The 35mm pix were hosted on my old server which is now gone, i have them hosted on my new server but have been too lazy to update the URL's. I'll get to it sooner or later :)
