My name is utahjeepr and I\'m a Hammerholic(w/pics)

I made my first trip out to run the hammers 6 weeks ago. I have been out there twice more since then, most recently this past weekend. I have run Sledge (2x), Claw, Aftershock, Outerlimits, Big Johnson, and Sunbonnet (don't be fooled by the name, it is a memorial to a deceased 4wheller of the female persuasion, it was her CB handle). I can't get enough! If i could have afforded/had time for the work required to repair the weaknesses found on each trip and been able to find someone to run with I would have gone 6 times in six weeks. I'd run next weekend if I could find someone to run with. Hell i'd quit my job and run tommorrow. I need help!

Amae, brotha Utah.
I am also a hammerholic, so you are amongst fellow addicts.
I try to get down there at least once a month.
My favorites trails are, Jack and Wrecking ball, but sledge is right up there, and I love to run Claw at night.
W e will have to meet up out there iin the near future. I havent been there since I swapped in the V8 .

Re: My name is utahjeepr and I\'m a Hammerholic

H8, would love to. I have yet to run Jack or Wrecking Ball. The guy I who leads the runs I make keeps threatening me with Jack backwards, says that I'll really "enjoy" it in my 5. According to him running reverse direction on Jack can really "get your attention, especially in a shorter wheelbase". I think I'd rather "enjoy" it forward first! His driving skill is equalled only by his lack of fear. You would have had to have been there when he took a line on sledge and someone asked if we HAD to go that way. When he replied "No, the trail goes to the left", a perceptable air of relief passed down the group despite his beautiful driving over what really appeared to be an impassable obstacle.

Pics of Saturday's sledge run are at http://www.justaddrocks.com/sledge_hammer_5-12-01.htm. Mine is the red/orange 5 without a winch, donations gladly accepted. He also has lots of cool picture albums of other runs at JV and elsewhere, they just aren't quite as cool 'cause I'm not in 'em. ;-)

You guys are so lucky to have rocks out your back door! All we have around here is mud, woods, and a few hill climbs.
Those pic's were so cool I had to post my favorite below.
