    On the road home from an awesome trip! Bre and I took an extra day to see some family and go camp by a lake.

    Grabbed these two off my camera. More pics and such to come soon!

    Alrighty! San G 6.redux trip alternate. Went out to AZ!

    Packed up during the week, and come Friday morning Moose was all “I know you guys are planning something and there’s NO WAY you’re leaving me behind. I am not moving unless it’s to get into the truck.” :rofl:

    We never leave him for trips, so obviously he came :thumbsup:

    Hit the road Friday AM and motored out to Sedona.

    Ran up the 17 to drop into Schnebly Hill from the top.
    Met up with a few friends who had camped there the night prior and set up camp while we waited for the rest of the group to arrive.

    Saturday morning packed up and headed down The ol’ bumpy Schnebly.

    Once at the bottom we made our way to Broken Arrow. Had a great time on the trail! (Minus a few angry Jeepers)

    After Broken Arrow we got gas, lunch, aired up and made our way towards our next camp making a detour to Crackerjack Mine Trail.
    Forgot to take pics, but here’s some pinstripes!

    This is where my trip planning started to fall short. We were running out of daylight quick! While I enjoy night driving, it’s less than ideal to locate and set up camp in the dark. Also had the hiccup of my preferred camp spots being occupied, then took the group on a 30 mile dirt tour trying to find a suitable replacement site. We eventually did, set up, made dinner, and had a pretty quiet night.

    About 2am the weather took a turn for the worse and started pouring! It was pretty cool camping in the rain considering we were nice and dry in the tent. We packed up almost all the night prior as we were anticipating rain just didn’t know when it would start.

    We were all pretty quick to get out of there and start making the trek home. My fiancée has family in AZ so we parted ways, said good byes, and hit the road.

    Spent a few hours with her family and then made way to our solo camp site for the night. Parked right up on the water!
    Love this spot!

    Next day, we hit the road once again. From Primm to Baker there’s a dirt bypass to take if there’s traffic on the 15. There wasn’t traffic but we took it anyways with the hopes to see some wildlife. Didn’t spot any, but a couple bonus hours of dirt is always fun!

    Anyways. That’s about it. Made it home safely. Couple new scratches and dents, but that is all a part of the fun!

    That crossmember should look like this minus the dirt :rofl:
    Also sounds like you just need a bigger size up on the bolt.

    Rad, I guessed correctly! Ok. Thank you! That’s how mine are in there.

    Yeah. Gotta snag bigger bolts so they’re on there right.
