Slickrock Southern Style
Tuesday we headed out to Pritchett Canyon. Jeff Stevens was the trailboss for the day and he really knows his stuff. Also on the ride were the Jersey Boys with their built to the hilt Zuks. All total we had about 14 rigs on the run.
Not far into the trail we met the first obstacle of the day, a ledge that we had to drop off. Not to bad but it sure got your attention and gave you an idea of things to come. From there we found a couple of optional ledges to play at on the way to Rocker Knocker. This is where I found the first ledge I couldn't climb. I was still trying to nurse my rear springs, as I didn?t want to have to do another swap. I also chose to bypass the next optional section and I?m glad I did. Everyone that tried it had problems, one rolled onto its side, but no damage was sustain. As we headed up the trail we found more and more ledges to drop off of and climb up. One seemed to give several of the Zuks fits. Mike put on one heck of a show as he stood his ?lil red Zuk straight up in the air!
From there it was on to the Waterfall, another optional playground. There are several different lines up and of course Eddie and the Jersey Boys had to try the hardest line. Again, one went over on its side but no big deal as several of us jumped in and pushed him right back over.
At this point we sat for a couple of hours waiting on a mixed group of jeeps and full-size rigs trying to get up Rocker Knocker. Finally we all decided it would be to late to finish the trail so we headed out the way we came in. It turned out that the first ledge of the day would be the toughest spot going out. We had to wait for several Jeeps to winch up and finally we got a shot at it. Only a few Zuks had problems but most made it without help. Again another great day on the trail with some of the countries craziest Zuk heads around.
