Just curious, considering only small trucks can
accomplish this nasty run?

I did it the first time with Bruce spotting me without spinning a tire . Cocky the next I went back I did it beer in hand and tunes cranked. I made it up but it wasn't pretty.

Did John make it or did he have to winch forward a bit because of the popped bead on his tire?

What part of the canopener do you mean, the upper, lower or both?Cause I know the part that Kev, John and Bruce are talking about is the upper, I haven't even waled the lower part but I did make it through the upper.....ridin' shotgun with Mike:D:D And you cn do it in a fullsize Don Henry made it in his Chev[3]

Yeah Canopener the upper part is pretty much a cake walk compared to what it was at one time, the lower portion can be a little bit of a gong show. Easy but a real fun trail, yeah Don went through the lower section pretty easily . But i think the rear stear and 49.5's helped him there

No wheelin for me I still have a fucked hub, not that I'd try the canopener again not yet anyways. And I got snowed on today too I was up at SFU it was like a blizzard untill about noon[:0]Went from sunshine to snow in less than 12 hours how cool is that(no pun intended:D)

Yeah hey ZUkichick were you wanting to run Canopener this weekend? I agree one day Canopener seems real easy the next time you go out bam it takes you forever to get through even the easiest of spots

I did the lower and upper sections. Lower in the PISSING rain (and I mean pissing !!!!) and the upper with a bit of snow on it. No real problems, but definatley a good trail(s).

It's a short but challenging trail. There're pictures on the front page of this site and the location is on a loop from Inch Creek to Chehalis Lake.

I would not even call it a trail more like a challenge just off the main logging road. As soon as the weather breaks I get a run /bbq going up there. What's good about the challenge is it's really good for spectating.

If you can call it a Chev, its sort of a blend of things, unimog included. You can check it out in last years? Top Truck Challenge video's, so you can sort of guess its out of the ordinary! Id like to come along and spectate, maybe try part of the trail.

Hey Okor;

That be my Jeep.


those are new on the market.They call it a 4way steering stabalizer.The yellow spring helps center the steering.It works like a hot dam on the larger tires eliminates the need for a duell steering stabalizer.[3]

that's just weird, but if it works. So the spring works under compression and tension?

You bet....Works really well

I thought the same thing at first and my buddy that owns a shop said just put it on use it for awhile if you dont like it give it back.Well about a half dozen of my friends are running them now.All of them running 35's or bigger and built for rocks

Go figure.

Can opener -- Game on!!

I have a cold 6pack of beer to anyone that can make it up under their own power without backing up, rock stacking/moving or using a winch.

You can use a spotter and stop as many times as you need.

This will be a 6 to 1 bet. You bet 1 beer to my 6.


any takers?

Hey Harry you talking the whole thing lower to upper i assume, or just the upper "Canopener" part

Honky
03-04-2004, 12:43 PM
just the upper part I'm not sure if the lower part is doable anymore.

I might do a side bet to anyone that can do the lower section as is without some sort of body damage

Ok it's your choice I will do the same bet for the lower section. so you could win a case of beer to your 2 but you better make sure there dam cold

The trail changes all the time so the upper bet stands but I'll look at the lower before I set the bet.

Next Sunday would work although it's not the greatest run if it's raining. Let's make it Sunday weather permitting. If it's raining I'm going to Stave to play in the beer...I mean mud :-)

Bruce how quick you quick you jump ship when there's beer involved ......LOL
