Off to Mt. Blanca

Off to run Mt Blanca, one of the top three trails in the state for difficulty. First a two hundred mile run down to San Luis lake where we will camp tonight, then a short jaunt to the trail in the morning. We're going to camp at the top Sat. night, then run down and back home on Sunday. It will be the first extended trip since I swapped axles. I've said my prayers to the gods, and offered up a sacrificial ujoint on the garage alter, and will drive with fingers crossed the whole way. Not worried about the trail, it's the drive to get there; 4.56 plus 4 speed plus 33's = top highway speed of about 55mph.

Wish me well!
