Mark takes the "Difficult Run" into "Hell Canyon" The Club split into three separate groups for Saturday's run. The "Posie Sniffers" got the easy trail for the street buggies, the inexperienced off-roaders, and the "white knuckle" wives. The "Medium Group" got the scenic trail along the top of the ridge. And the "Difficult Run" got the opportunity to slide down hills, jump over out-croppings, splash through the mud, and leave misc. body parts on boulders in the middle of the trail. (Notice the guy on the right - it took twenty minutes to lift him off a rock while trying to avoid a 200 foot clif on the right.)
Boulder Climbing This spot generated a little excitement. You first drop into a hole and tilt 45 degrees then punch it to jump over a large rock. You get a little airborne before your buggy clears the outcropping. A few dents in the belly pan are acquired along the way.
Horse Power vs Donkey Power We all enjoyed a lunch in Historic Oatman Ghost Town. This mining town is located on old Route 66 and is a favorite place for tourists from Laughlin to visit. A gunfight in the street entertained us during lunch. Wild donkeys run free through the streets and beg for carrots from the tourists.
The first Manx SR to attend a club outing Bruce Meyers poses by a Manx SR in Oatman. The B.F.Meyers Co. prduced the SR as a street version of the Meyers Manx. (See History of the Meyers Manx)
"Sunrise Run" "Sunrise Run" Sunday's "Sunrise Run" took us to the top of the mountains on the Nevada side overlooking the Colorado River and the city of Laughlin. The view from this spot was awe inspiring even though the wind was a bit chilly. We were up and driving early to allow us to break camp by noon to make the seven hour drive back to San Diego.
Steve Widdowson also provided us with a copy of his digital photos from the trip.
