I’ve Seen The Light

We were asked why so much 4X4ing in just a few days. Well, we are getting familiar with the trails for the Escapees HOP of 4X4ing that we will help with next week. Ed & Sandy have gone over the trails last week and they wanted us to be familiar with them also. I have about 4-5 years of experience on ATVs on trails in the East but none in the west.

We were asked why we didn’t move the tree the other day by hooking tow straps and moving it with our Jeeps.DSCN0102

Quiz…….the answer is:

1)  Didn’t think about it.

2)  Tree would be pulled against another tree which can not be seen in the picture.

3)  Needed to do some physical work.

4)  Just bought the saw and wanted to try it out.

5)  Didn’t bring any straps.

6)  Wanted to show off to the girls.

7)  We did what the girls told us to do.

The answer is….tomorrow..but send me your answer today.

Names for the Jeep.  We got some real good ones.  Here are a few;  Rusty, Orange Crush, Sunkist, Naval, The Jeep, Dusty, Little Beast, Crusher, Orange Blossom Special, Orange Pump Can, Puff, Mango and Bufo.

Here is what happens.  Carol says, “Dennis, can you get the GPS out of the (Jeep) …………?”.

We decided to go with the name ……. Tell you tomorrow.

Now, today we went 4X4ing again and Mammoth Cave was the highlight.  Getting there..DSCN0215 DSCN0221 DSCN0222 DSCN0223  Hatch, UT 002

Which way do we go………Hatch, UT 015 Hatch, UT 018

The Mammoth Caves.  I’m leading the way.  We all went into the caves but only one went all the way through.  It was about a 100 yards long.  Towards the end the cave it got tighter and tighter.  Then “I saw the light” at the end of the tunnel.  I had to crawl on my belly the last 20 yards or so.  It was an adventure.  If someone would have told me that I was going to crawl on belly in a cave I would have told them NEVER and that they were frickin dreaming.  Never say never.Hatch, UT 021

Here’s Carol, Denny & Sandy.  Everybody chickened out!!!!! except one, ME!Hatch, UT 030-001 

Today was just another adventure for sure…. I will never do that again.  I mean I will probably never ever do that again.

See ya…
