I have some pics, mainly of Holey Moley. That trail was tough, but awesome. Thanks to Twisted trails and "Wheeling machine" for winching me out and helping me and my broke ass Jeep.

I will post pics later today.

Here are some pics of me going through holy moly. Great trail, I would have made if my Jeep wouldn't of quit on me.

By the way Ian, I took my carb apart and found a needle clogged with some debris and that is why it wouldn't get gas.

yeah, it was good to finally put faces with screen names. Did you try out the picker valley trail. I finally went on it with some of the cadillac jeepers, had a blast. The dusters went to a charity run in Kaleva, they had a blast, but they were glad to hear about the turnout and that the wheelers had a great time. See you all there for the Pumkin Run.

ya i made it up that hill first try. i had to use the winch in one other spot. where the pic of adams dad is standing there by the tree in the cedar swamp. a few of us kept sliding into the tree there. i hit my roll bar there. winchs around it to save my ass from chrushing a door and windsheild frame. another rig behind me had to do the samething. i also used my rock rails and gas tank skid alot. took a couple hard hits on some of the rock stairs. tried it all. did it all. right after you guys left i went back and did the hill climb with the huge concrete slabs in it and made it up that in the first try to. that impessed the hell out of me.
