Pancake Rock Trip Pix!!!
 
I put these up over on the other forum, but seeing as though there are quite a few guys down here in SoCal that I haven't met yet, this might spawn some local wheeling interest!


So a couple of weeks ago I made my way into the San Diego section of JF to try and meet up with local Jeepers and hit some trails. I found out they were getting together for a trip out to Pancake Rock. I had heard about it some, but never been there. It was supposed to be a moderate trail which is perfect for me and the WKs limited abilities to flex. So out we went! We met up yesterday morning a 0800 to try and beat the heat with no avail. By the time we get to the staging area it was already 86 out which turned into 102 by the time we were finished at 1245. Despite the heat I had a great time! We had a good turn out with 9 Jeeps total. For the exception of myself everyone was in a YJ or TJ. Ok enough of this... here are the pix!!!

Here is a little video of me deciding I needed to take the hard way up! It is hard to tell, but this is a very steep climb up to the top of Pancake Rock.

Then we decided to head down behind Pancake Rock to the rock garden.

The most interesting part of the trail was probably this section.

My thoughts on this!

Then some Rock garden fun

Unfortunately my camera minion did not make it down for most of the fun.

Then on the way back out we had some carnage! One of the YJs snapped a shaft.

On the way down the WK had to stop and lift a leg for a quick bathroom break!

By the end of the day I had hit every skid I had! The Belly and Rear Guard took the brunt of the abuse as usual. The Side Guards were quite helpful as well. So here is a shout out to 4xGuard. Thanks for all of your awesome products over the years! My WK would be useless without them!

This is what I hit in the video on my way up Pancake Rock. Thank God I had that Rear Guard!

So after a little more poking around underneath I also discovered this:

I am glad that was there otherwise I could have had a very bad day! Nothing like testing out every piece of armor!
