went out wheelin with some friends today, after being down swamped with work keeping me on my days off with no time to relax:eek:

got today off and headed out to Watson for some long missed wheelin fun.
started off just goofing around on appetizer then headed to ruler to check it out. having no one with us who has ran Ruler we decided to do it a later day and ran Fire-bird backwards. After finishing Fire-bird Ted(friend in Bronco) wanted to go check out Oreo Canyon.

with ted not wanting to try i was the only one to get it a shot, with
a winch(for safty) made it righ up.

twistedtj(jeff) if u havn't already tryed this waterfall it is a MUST!!:D
time for another Jeff and Jeff show:cool:

Looks like an interesting climb.

Ruler is easy. People get hung up in the rocks it seems, but it can be driven in 20-25 mins easy and isn't that tough with lockers and driving. 37s help but are overkill for that trail.

You'd have been fine.

Orea Canyon looks awesome! I've seen pics of that obstacle before and I was curious what trail it was. Looks like a must do.

Question, what are you winching off of?

Jeff, I tryed that fall one night we were out there when I was the only vehical. I jabbed at the bottom lip a few times, and thought I was a hero truck'n, till I got all the way to the top. That thing showed it's UGLY SIDE and stood me up vetrical on my hind end. I haven't tryed it with a winch,in daylight, or with anybody else around since. ( RANDY'S FRIEND, KYLE)

I grew up 4x4ing in the white tanks, lived off jackrabbit trail. There is an old telegraph trail that goes all the way over the mtns.(to Wickenburg side) There are still poles and some wire still strung along the trail, You'll need and old topo map to find the trail. And I haven't a clue where it starts anymore, with all the new roads and new houses out there. Just an idea for you that live in the area. Was always a blast to run when I ran it! (10 years+ ago)
