Crapshoot Trail 12/2019 - Trip Report

Recommended Posts

 

Today Kevin (CAVU2) and I ran Crapshoot at Table Mesa.   There are only a couple of obstacles and we failed to get any pictures of them.  However, we stumbled upon this abandoned Jeep from Colorado on the side of the trail.  There was a chain around the rear bumper and it looked like they were trying to pull him out sideways, instead of forward?:

The vehicle was stuffed full of camping gear.  There was also a pressure washer on the ground.  Kevin said the  vehicle had a 'prospector' bumper sticker which would explain the pressure washer.  This was strange because there are no claims, prospects, or mines anywhere near this area:

We also stumbled upon a nearby laptop that apparently belonged to our hapless prospector.  The optical drive contained an interesting DVD.   I wanted to take it home, but Kevin thought otherwise and I told him I left it behind.........or did I?   :)

Great trip report Gear! I saw some pictures of that Jeep on facebook; the poster was asking if it had been stolen and abandoned out there. A bunch of people said it belongs to some tweeker dude who lived out of it at Lake Pleasant for a long time. Surprised he's got so much stuff in it.  So, how was that DVD? 🤣 😂

When I got home yesterday I saw a trip report that it has been out there at least a month.  I'm shocked it hasn't been torched by now!  That's what tends to happen to rigs left abandoned on the side of the trail.......😮.

Nice report. If a tweeker dude is involved perhaps vaccines for everything are in order after touching the DVD!! 🤣🤣
