12/7/2019 - Backway to Crown King

Recommended Posts

Hi! Had a nice little tight group of rigs make the run to Crown King this weekend on Pearl Harbor Day. Weather was awesome, partly cloudy, about 50-60 all day.

 

Personally, I make this run annually on the first weekend in December. It's sort of become a tradition for me (my 4th year), and it's amazing to see how the trail changes in those 1 year snapshots. Obstacles that were filled in with sand last year were completely washed out this year and drastically changed in difficulty.

 

@theksmith @REDROCK TONIHAWK @Rubicon 18 and a guest from the Summit Offroad pages joined in for a great run! 

 

I got high centered twice on my belly skids (I need a lift & tires, man!), and @theksmith got to test out his winch for the first time (but we won't say why!)

All in all, we made it to CK in 5 hours, and nobody broke!

The creek crossing was a heck of a lot of fun. Recent rain and melting snows gave us about a dozen nice crossings and good flowing water.
