    Aaaarrrggghh!

    I can't go this year. I've got to make it out to wheel in CO.

    Also, the snow and long sleeves made me even more envious; it's been 95+ F with high humidity here in GA.

    Thanks for posting the photos,

    Registered on line, cheque mailed and hotels booked.

    Are the river water levels expected to rise by the end of July (snow melt) ?
    I ask because although i have a lift and 33" tires one thing my RR P38 will not enjoy is water through the intake ( located below and behind the drivers side headlight.) and one of the trip participants indicated the water was up to his hood on his P38. The door seals work well (to protect the BECM which will not enjoy a bath) but the air intake with water deeper than 34" (a little more with a bow wave) would be an issue and i would be inclined to winch across with the engine off
    If the water was over the hood on the P38 was the air intake disconnected from the airbox?

    If you look on the 2nd. photo bucket, there are a couple pictures of MikeM trying to submerge his blue Disc, really a couple great shots.

    Trying to submerge it?!? I thought I did a pretty good job.

    We took an LR3 and a P38 through that spot, twice. Everyone made it without issues.

    I'm expecting the water levels to be slightly lower for the rally. A lot of the snow has melted already.

    The trail was a lot of fun and the scenery was incredible. There are 4 water crossing and you have to do each one a second time on the return trip. I would not bring a stock truck on this trail, but if you have larger tires (31 or bigger) and a mild lift, you can probably make it.

    I will be leading it on the last day of the rally, or, if you want a _good_ trail leader, you can run it on one of the other days. I think it will be run all three trail days.

    For those of you who will not be at the rally this year, start thinking about 2010. We will be back in Moab.

    Rover97 photobucket has a great picture of the water up to the windshield on the P38.
    Looks like a good trail option, even for trail day 3
    Hopefully the water level will have subsided, just a little, so long as it does not rise any higher by the end of July.

    Mike,

    I was just about to ask if the '10 Rally will be in Moab.

    So does the rally pretty much alternate between Moab and various locations in CO? If so I'll have to shoot for a back-to-back '10 and '11 run out west.

    I don't think it's set in stone, but it is highly likely that we will be in Moab next year.
