Wow what a trip
I hit the road @ 730 am on friday and hauled ass all the way princeton to meet the convoy at manning park gas station
http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t83/mrtuna/wipsaw%2008/IMG_6821.jpg

we hit the trail head bout 11-12 and the first thing we see is cows blocking the road ???

i moooo at them with the pa and they gave us passage
http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t83/mrtuna/wipsaw%2008/IMG_6824.jpg

here's a shot of most of the convoy at first stop
http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t83/mrtuna/wipsaw%2008/IMG_6836.jpg

the next stop was a cabin on the way to wells
http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t83/mrtuna/wipsaw%2008/IMG_6839.jpg
http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t83/mrtuna/wipsaw%2008/IMG_6840.jpg
had a grave outside it
http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t83/mrtuna/wipsaw%2008/IMG_6844.jpg

http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t83/mrtuna/wipsaw%2008/IMG_6843.jpg

then we pushed on to wells

wow its beautiful up here
http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t83/mrtuna/wipsaw%2008/IMG_6857.jpg
there was snow in some spots but nothing major
http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t83/mrtuna/wipsaw%2008/IMG_6862.jpg

we were told the road to wells was already blazed but that was a fucken lie.
once we hit the shady side it got bad
http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t83/mrtuna/wipsaw%2008/IMG_6864.jpg

but thanks to unimogs we got through and kept on going
http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t83/mrtuna/wipsaw%2008/IMG_6879.jpg

http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t83/mrtuna/berts%20shower/MVI_6867.jpg
from here i stopped taking pics for the rest of the day because of more snow and a brutal gong show trying to get all the trucks through

it took 12 hours to reach granite mountain due to snow

the yellow mog and the green mog went ahead and tried to break trail to wells but had to give up because the snow was too deep.

so we settled in on granite mount for the night.





day 2 at granite

we set up camp
http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t83/mrtuna/wipsaw%2008/IMG_6899.jpg
and got wilbur cookin
http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t83/mrtuna/wipsaw%2008/IMG_6884.jpg

http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t83/mrtuna/wipsaw%2008/IMG_6901.jpg
day 2 night was a party and gooder too
http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t83/mrtuna/wipsaw%2008/IMG_6928.jpg
http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t83/mrtuna/wipsaw%2008/IMG_6932.jpg

http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t83/mrtuna/wipsaw%2008/IMG_6929.jpg

we even had a disco ball thanks to gave man
http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t83/mrtuna/wipsaw%2008/IMG_6933.jpg

then it got drunk out and as in tradition i gave wilbur his explosive finish
http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t83/mrtuna/wipsaw%2008/IMG_6937.jpg
http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t83/mrtuna/wipsaw%2008/IMG_6944.jpg



we spent day 3 relaxing and doing some light wheeling.

i climbed to the top of the mountain for a pic
http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t83/mrtuna/wipsaw%2008/IMG_6948.jpg
and we had another great night
http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t83/mrtuna/wipsaw%2008/IMG_6954.jpg

day 4 was pack up and leave

because of the extreme heat and the snow melting before our eyes we decided ..... we didn't come all this way to go back the way we came and after a short meeting we said fuck it were goona do wipsaw the whole way in one day

there was carnage

leaving granite

http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t83/mrtuna/wipsaw%2008/IMG_7004.jpg

because of the rapid snow melt the whole trail was like this
http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t83/mrtuna/wipsaw%2008/IMG_7011.jpg
and then after 2 hours of mudding
http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t83/mrtuna/wipsaw%2008/IMG_7016.jpg
http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t83/mrtuna/wipsaw%2008/IMG_7038.jpg
http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t83/mrtuna/wipsaw%2008/IMG_7055.jpg
from there it was up falcon hill and believe me the pics don't do it justice
http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t83/mrtuna/wipsaw%2008/IMG_7058.jpg

cool little play ground
http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t83/mrtuna/wipsaw%2008/IMG_7077.jpg
4low didn't pack his beers right
http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t83/mrtuna/wipsaw%2008/IMG_7079.jpg

gavemans rig ( that guy can drive )
http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t83/mrtuna/wipsaw%2008/IMG_7089.jpg
my jeep with some imitation armor-all
http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t83/mrtuna/wipsaw%2008/IMG_7080.jpg
and then about dinner time
http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t83/mrtuna/wipsaw%2008/IMG_7100.jpg
http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t83/mrtuna/wipsaw%2008/IMG_7102.jpg

http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t83/mrtuna/wipsaw%2008/IMG_7111.jpg

from there we left about 7pm and hit tullameen about 9pm
my permit expired @ 12 am so we took the shortcut from tullameen via 42k of sundown gravel road
http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t83/mrtuna/wipsaw%2008/IMG_7124.jpg

and ended up at the toll booth on the coke at 10 pm
for air up
http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t83/mrtuna/wipsaw%2008/IMG_7132.jpg



it was a trip i will never forget and will do again when it more dry

in total there was approx 35-40 trucks including 7 unimogs who made it in and out.... not all under their own power but all made it

for me it was flawless didn't get stuck once and being locked front and rear is just plain awesome .

sure thing. it was a blast and the scenery is un real. didn't get in till after 2am so that was alot of seat time.

tim (cruizer) is the most patient and generous guy.

thanks to all for an amazing time.

It isnt a tough trail just long and dusty (did it in my toy camper) just make sure you truck is in good order and it should be no problems .

I would suggest doing it once so you never have to do it again .:)

Awesome pictures ,we were up in Hedley this weekend and it was hot kept jumping into the river to cool off[it was cold] we were gonna do some wheeling but air conditioning died on us and with 2 big dogs we stayed at camp ,figured lakes would be too hot to fish and diesel is too heavy that we would have sunk in the mud
