Re: FJX2000's Wheeling Trips & Adventures Thread

Photos from Black Bear Pass on my Saturday run! Pretty rad, we had a Voodoo FJ with a solid axle swap in my group and the group behind us also had an FJ with a SAS! Was so cool to see in person!

But because my group was moving a little too slow for me I actually decided to go on alone from the pass. Was pretty fun actually! Had my parents with me which was a good time.






































And then that night we got an awesome rainbow!

Re: FJX2000's Wheeling Trips & Adventures Thread

Had a fun time yesterday going off-roading with some of my college mates! Was their first time wheeling so I made sure they had a good time! This was my shake-down run do test the recent install of my new Moog LCAs and the recent welds I had done to my lower cam tabs.

Re: FJX2000's Wheeling Trips & Adventures Thread

Went off-road last weekend with my cousin @Jager212 and with fellow forum member @shrdnar . Jager212 had his Sandstorm FJ with its recent addition of a ToyTec/Bilstein 3" lift and Shrdnar had his new FJ80 which he was taking on its maiden off-road voyage to test how it would do, specifically if the CB system was working. It was my first time wheeling with both these guys and it was going great but unfortunately Shrdnar's steering pump line disconnected while we headed up Lake Mountain via Israel Canyon so he didn't make it to the top with us, but that is what test runs are for! Upon getting to the top it was super cold and windy! But the road wasn't bad at all (a little muddy and slick) and there was a tiny bit of snow at the top.

























And then in the end we got some awesome burgers at Seven Brothers!

Re: FJX2000's Wheeling Trips & Adventures Thread

Well another FJ Summit has come and gone. So here are the photos and YouTube video to prove it!


Day one, my cousin and I arrived and after registering and before going to the evenings events, we did a speed run up Yankee Boy Basin. We made it up and back in just over 2 hours! First time for me doing it, or at least first time in many years, very nice run!







On day two, Thursday, I was signed up to run on the first Black Bear Pass run of the day. Usually my family's tradition has been to run it on Saturday, but after realizing how congested the trails are and Telluride is on Saturday and how annoying it is to be caught behind other groups, we decided to run it earlier in the week and first thing in the morning. However, only I was able to sign up for the trail, and my uncle and cousin with their FJs weren't able to get in. We showed up to our meet-up location but finding no more room in the trail run for the 2 additional rigs, we headed off on our own 3 person run ahead of the other group! My cousin is the one in the Sandstorm FJ, and his forum name is @Jager212 . He is actually driving my uncle's old FJ since he bought the red 2012 Trail Teams. My uncle is @Uncle2FJX2000 and this was his 2nd Summit. Technically it was my cousin's 2nd too, but he rode with me back in 2013 I believe so this was his first time with his own FJ.




This was also my first Summit with my new DJI Mavic Pro drone! I was able to get some sweet pictures and video!















After Black Bear Pass and lunch in Telluride, we decided to come back via Last Dollar Road. Another trail I hadn't ever done and one I was excited to do vs Ophir Pass since we would be running Ophir the following day.




On day 3, Friday, I trail led an Imogene Pass run. Only 3 people from the run actually showed up, and then my cousin tagged along too. My uncle and aunt were also running Imogene on a women's-only trail run ahead of us, so we met up with them in Telluride. It was sure nice only having 5 rigs in our group, as it made managing everyone and getting photos and video at "The Spot" a very streamlined experience. Be sure to check out my YouTube videos to see how it came out!

Re: FJX2000's Wheeling Trips & Adventures Thread

More from FJ Summit on Imogene Pass!

















I didn't really take any photos that were worth while on Ophir but the following day, Saturday, I led a California Pass/Corkscrew Gulch run. However things got a bit messy. After asking one of the Summit directors which way to run the trail just for confirmation on the route, they said to go up Corkscrew Gulch, towards California Pass, and out to Silverton via Animas Forks. I was excited since I had never run these trail in this direction! But I think the director may have gotten "Cali/Corkscrew" and "Gulches" runs mixed up as I discovered on the trail that we were sort of clogging up some of The Gulches runs. But in the end it all worked out and everyone had a great time! Fun fact, @Winterpeg was on the run too! I actually ran into quite a few forum members at the Summit! And some people knew of me from my YouTube channel, others through my Instagram, or even Facebook, though I had no idea who they were. Crazy how social media is now-a-days!









After spending some time in Silverton, and getting this awesome photo, capturing to of my favorite things in one photo, we headed up the Clear Lake Trail for my dad to do some fishing. (Fun fact: for those who don't know, I actually work on the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad as a brakeman and fireman.)
