I could be talked into doing something very easily...  My wife did not get to go on the Signal Peak Run.  We could do that or something else?

I'm booked this weekend...Anniversary, but I want to do a Fordyce intro run to the first crossing and a slick rock run.  I'll try and get them on the calendar soon. 

Um...what?

Well everyone had plans this weekend.  So I was itching to drive my jeep Rob and I went out to Prairie City and checked out Metal Cloaks Skillz Day.  It was lots of fun they lots of venders and info booths there.  Rob took the baby jeep on a few obstacles. I watched the show from the shade lol and it was a show at times.  Free lunch and some swag it was a good time.  image.jpegImage Enlargerimage-1.jpegImage Enlargerimage-2.jpegImage Enlargerimage-3.jpegImage EnlargerThis was the only obstacle I went on grin

That trailer looks like it would be awesome for a trip like the Hammers. You could come back to camp and fix everything under the Jeep. I want one.

I used to wheel a lot. . .

Wow... Sounds like that was a fun event!  I wish I had known it was going on.  I ended up taking my wife and some friends back up to Signal Peak since they did not get to go last weekend on the night run.  It was nice to get out of the Valley heat.sun

My score was 720, the guy told me the suspension looked to be working properly no problems. I had a couple of more inches of upward travel left.  But he also suggested I look into some long travel shocks it may give the extra travel.

I wouldn't worry about it. That's more than enough flex for anything you're going to run. Unless ramp scores are your goal.
