Well I didn’t make it to the actual event, just caught the tail end. Which is alright, sounds like I probably would t have passed ‘tech’ per naxja standards (I’ll keep the laughing and eye roll emojis to myself).
I did however meet up with a few guys still on their tail end of the trip and event.
Plan was a simple run up Top Of The World. Unfortunately the highway was shit down for a race so no access to the trail head. This being a new area for all of us, we decided to explore and swing around the back side to tie into TOTW. We ended up starting in castle valley, catching rose garden hill - uphill, kokopelli, and then top of the world. We left pavement around 1030, I hit the road back to Colorado from Dewey bridge around 9pm. Was a long day, but tons of fun. Thanks to jeepinseal, twinhauler, and goosexj_88 for the invite, and some work to get through some of the less anticipated sections.
On to what you folks care about, pics!

Ended up being the sunset of a lifetime. Was a great day and totally worth the effort and long day in the end.

I wonder if anyone has ever tripped getting out of their rig on that rock and taken the plunge to their death ?

FUN day for sure. Curious to see what y’all managed to snap while putting a Tacoma in questionable positions. :roflmao:

Yes, Top of the World was a good run on Saturday, also. Only pain was I lost a cup on a front axle u-joint on the highway back into Moab. Between Mark, Lobster DMB and some other willing hands we replaced it in about 40 minutes.

Mike is was great having you meet up with us and going for a epic all day adventure. I think we did great with what time and length of travel. It was 61.9miles from hwy back to hwy. Epic and I would do it again any time. MOAB ROCKS.

Definitely. Thanks again. Maybe I’ll be able to catch y’all on the con soon.
