Re: July 14th 2015. TOTW trail.

Although it is a completely different type of trail, here is @petitfrerearmada on the Black Gap in Big Bend National Park.

The only place he didn't go with us, was up Christmas Mountain. The property owners thought he was too long of a wheel base. I think he would have made it just fine.

I still say you could have driven up Christmas Mountain with us. But it was great having you as my passenger
I think you need to drive up to Gilmer and join me at Barnwell Mountain sometime. That way you can test some of the harder stuff than what we had in Big Bend.

Are you going alone on this trip? I wouldn't suggest attempting this trail without another vehicle wheeling with you. Make sure you have some good recovery gear.

Have fun and I want to see the pictures too!
I have someone riding with me on this trip.

Thanks for giving me a ride up that Christmas Mountain. It was a great view. My feelings were really hurt when they said my Armada was not allowed. LOL, I felt discriminated against. I am not kidding you. For real. I just have never mentioned it or expressed it. But hey, it is their property and I had to obey their rules. So, the Armada stayed parked at the bottom of the hill.

But when we made the trip, I mean, that trail is so easy my Armada would have had no problems anywhere on that trail. You know we talked about that. Too bad they singled out my FAT Armada as a no-go on that Hill. Well, with the Tahoe.

I would like to join you in Barnwell sometime. I have heard a lot of stories and seen a lot of great pics and videos. My cousin in Dallas just gave birth and I have to go see her, so I will see if I can fit a day of wheeling in my trip, whenever I choose to go visit her. Hopefully it is a day you can go out and play too.

My wife and I will be joining for TOTW if its ok. It will be our second trip to Moab and our first doing TOTW.

How does TOTW compare to Elephant Hill difficulty wise?

Right on. You are on the list. It will be my first time doing TOTW in my FJ so we will help each other out. We are getting a great group of folks lined up now. I'm excited. Hopefully we will get a few more to join us.

I have not done Elephant Hill but someone will chime in. According to what I have heard I believe TOTW is a much easier trail.

Welcome Aboard!!!

Re: July 14th 2015. TOTW trail.

@PetitFrereArmada , with all due respect - this thread is specifically for people who are planning a trip to TOTW for mid-July. This is not an appropriate place for you to talk about plans and progress for your own personal trip, and you are cluttering up this discussion with off-topic postings that I personally find distracting (since I am actually planning to go on the July 14 trip). There is a separate forum for en route and/or completed expeditions, and that is where you should be posting your own stuff. Thank you for your consideration.

@Moab Junky

I completed TOTW today.

I could not find the area where people pose for pics. I went past the end of the trail. I made a uturn and went to the spot where I guess should be the end, but I could not find the exact spot where people pose. Can you take a look at the pics on my thread and tell me if that is the spot?

I can't find another thread. It is hard to believe you ran the whole trail loop and missed the viewpoint.
