Well I'm glad you had a good time. I noticed your front bumper is off. Did the desert eat it like it did mine or did you sell it?

That looks like Box Canyon near Florence Junction. It's a fun trail that is tough but not too crazy. I hate my weird schedule or I definately would have been there!

Yeah we can go up near Wickenburg and run up into the Bradshaws. There are some fun washes to run and a lot of history and mines plus some trails, all pretty light. Maybe a Tuesday after you get out of class? If not we can run up to Table Mesa West (other side than last time) and play around there maybe Saturday afternoon/evening. Then Jason can come if he wants. He is getting his front hitch installed Thursday. Heck we can do both Tuesday and Saturday wheeling!

I will post pictures tomorrow. However, as for where we were, we started in Florence and drove up the Box Canyon trail. We then followed that trail to the Telegraph Canyon trail (by way of Ajax Mine). We eventually ended up in Superior. It was a great day with a few crazy challenges. On second thought, I will add a couple of teaser photos tonight.

If I have the time I'd go wheeling at least once a week! I work too much, plus college, and a gf I stay very busy. She will be in next weekend, so it would possibly be wheeling Tuesday August 5th and Saturday August 9th. I'm going to call Nocturnal and see what weekend they can fab for me. I want to get it done asap but they've been busy lately. Hopefully next weekend so my truck will be all ready for wheeling.

yep

and i'm also thinking of leaving the rock crawling side of it behind and getting more into the desert racing and sand rail side of the off road industry.

i just love the supercharged LS2 rails doing wheelies at 60 miles an hour
