I just got home and took a 10 minute shower. The baja did good. Got stuck twice though. My clutch hates me, lol. I also need new torsions in the rear. I pounded mine into submission. Its sitting about an inch and a half lower in back now. Haha.

Link to the alblum I just put in my Photobucket.

s4.photobucket.com/alb...ch%202010/

Couple of highlights pics.

After we met up near Wickenburg:



James going through 1 of 100 river/creek crossings:



In car view of river crossing:



Perri chatting with an older couple in a vintage Willy's jeep. At this point in the adventure we are but a few miles away from James and I both getting stuck trying to turn around at a waterfall. James' skidplated jack and Perri's high lift jack saved the day. I now want one of each for my baja.



Hassayampa river tried to claim my baja!!! Perri's winch saved the day on that stuck moment.

I'll have some video once slow tube uploads. U Tube predicts 55 minutes for a two minute video. The theme for this ride could of been Bajas in the Mud. This was a great ride. We had a tail gate lunch. Hopefully those pictures appear soon. I'm estimating we did about a 250 miler.

GREAT pic's and videos guys. Looks like a freak'n blast!
Perri, I think you linked up part one twice but thats ok. I was able to catch part 2 as it was linked with the others in youtube.

Thanks for sharing the experience. I've been foaming at the mouth for some off road action. Wink
