A few of us went camping up to Jordan River. Did some more playing around with the PAK RAT. Just more easy stuff, as I ended up being the only wheeler again. Still has running issues. Not sure if I should spend time making the carb work, or start working on the fuel injection swap.

Tight trails...

Didn't even deflect a bit. Not bad for not being fully welded, or even completed yet.
Was playing in a rock pit, climbing over some sizeable rocks, when a log jumped out of nowhere, and took out the radiator. Don't have any pics of the damage yet. I'm too tired.
Was a fun trip, though. :)

It's bald because it's my spare. I sliced one of my brand new SX's last trip out.;)

It is an old mining trail. Most of the openings are sealed up, but I know where there's an open one. I'll post pics when I get them from my buddy...

Yep. Was fun. The first of many, I hope. :D

That's the benefit of an exterior cage. You can use it more than once. ;)

This hole is HUGE! If you throw a rock over the edge, you can count to ten before it hits anything...then it just keeps going until you can't hear it anymore. Scary.

There's quite a long uphill walk back to the opening of the mine
