Default 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 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!
