Jeep Wanna Bees
 
Dale's Run 2010

The main group started in Greenwater & met us in camp at Tripod Flats...myself and a few other not-so-street-legal rigs opted to trailer over Chinook & start wheeling at the bottom of Kaner. We ran up Kaner, down Shoestring & up Tripod Flats...the main group took Lily Pond to Tripod Flats to save time. We beat them to camp by about 15 minutes.

Some highlights from the trip:
  • Had some brief ignition issues with Mark's 4Runner...pull start solved the problem.
  • I found out that hot exhaust & a rubbermaid action packer do not play well together...a 2x6 and some tinfoil solved the problem
  • Shane's K5 also had some ignition problems...Don quickly diagnosed the issue & bypassed the faulty wire
  • Matt learned that skinny boggers + low pressure + fatty K5 = strong familiarity with a hi-lift & air compressor
  • Don caught a stump & cracked his steering box in half at the top of Kaner...made a bonzai run back to the tow rig to swap on the spare
  • Shane flopped his K5 at Moon Rocks
  • I drove down the can opener for the first time...it was ugly, but I pulled it off
  • Saw Merrick at Funny Rocks
  • Ran into the Climax team at Funny Rocks...watched them pull off some very impressive lines





The Climax team drove down this line, turned around & spanked it back to the top...yes, it was that cool :rock:

The Jeep Wanna Bees had an awesome time on Dale's Run this year...covered lots of trail, ate, drank & wheeled the crap out of the rocks on SUN!

Cool pics!

I gotta couple pics I'll post up later, nice talking with ya Bryan.

Was an awesome run. :luke:
Thanks to Dale and Mary Lou. :jeepnirvana:

We found a biker stranded below Lilly Pond was cold wet and spent. He asked us to leave his bike there and offered $200 bucks to "just get him out".
We winched and rode his bike to a point where he could safely travel and off he went. We passed on the $$$$.
Next day a couple hunting dogs with "shock" collars were us at funny rocks lost and we were able to capture them call the owner and meet them on the way to Whistling Jacks. Got them back to their owners.
Thanks for letting me hijack Bryan.
Was an awesome time.

It is great to have people like you willing to help others. :cj3bwillys:
I still have your phone number. I will call you to come rescue me someday. :icon_mrgreen:

This was my first year on Dale's run. It was a blast. I clocked 160 miles on my Jeep from start to finish.

A big thank you to Dale and Mary Lou for a great run.

Another big thank you to the Cascade 4X4's for letting me go along. It was one of my best trips I have ever been on. I am looking forward to doing this again next year.

I will post up some pics I took soon. :friday:

Nice pics Bryon. You picked the right weekend to be there as last week the rocks were wet and slippery.

It sprinkled early SUN morning, but cleared up enough later in the day to have some sun shine through. Great day on the rocks...really fun to watch the Climax guys drop off the ledge & then turn around walk back up :cj3bwillys:

EDIT: updated pics in original post
