So this year I had a big inspection at work and was worried I wouldn't be able to go to KOH. Well, we passed the inspection Friday afternoon and I decided to fly down to Palm Springs and the guys picked me up Saturday afternoon. Didn't have the camera with me for the trip down there so the photos start on the lakebed Saturday evening.

Arrival at the lakebed looking at the sunset. Chad's Toyota tuning shocks. We 4-linked and coil-overed his truck after xmas and the welds were still hot when we loaded it onto the trailer.
Image

The dust will be a common theme with this year, there were so many people and my camera can't fight through it.
Image

Good shot of the sunset.
Image

Someone tagged my brand new wheels and there was already some rock love on them.
Image

The aftermath of changing the water pump on the trent fab. We stopped at 2 Napas in Palm Springs to get it. Probably the worst 2 parts stores in existence.
Image

Chad and Kevin finishing up shock tuning and getting them installed.
Image

Pregaming for a night run up sledge.
Image

View from my passenger seat on Saturday night. Yes, that is a rubber chicken on Josh's Jeep.
Image

Headed into sledge.
Image

Racer guys (Tom and Anthony) in the pre-ruinning car (Trent Fab). They wanted to run as many of the rock trails as possible.
Image

My chauffeur for the evening trying to stay out of the dust.

Plaque rock.

This year, we have a new and questionably improved 50 degree shirts off guy.
Image

Breakfast burrito's anyone?
Image

Anthony headed off to a photo shoot to keep the sponsors happy.
Image

Finally able to go play by myself, I took a trip out of the dust and tried to get away from it. A few of hammertown below on Sunday morning. This was mild dust. The "big crowd" hadn't even assembled yet.
Image

More dust anyone?
Image

Shameless plug for my junk.
Image

The obligatory "starfish mountain" photo from where we used to camp.
Image

More shock tuning. How Chad holds his tools.

So Team Chirobody and Team Degenerate teamed up to pit and crew together to maximize our resources. This was us discussing prelim strategy.
Image

I'd wheel it.
Image

Dodge guys like it butt to butt I guess.
Image

Sweet rig here.
Image

Not sure if willys or tractor?
Image

Image

Sleepy, sleepy Dave. (PS. Don't anger the Dave)
Image

Sexy, sexy Terry.
Image

Ready for more shock tuning?

Shock tuning.
Image

Heading out to go play out of the dust.
Image

Happy to be out of the dust.
Image

With my new and improved front suspension, and new engine, I could actually compete in the drag races across the lakebeds.
Image

Ron's toy.
Image

Heading into the trail. Couldn't remember which one.
Image

Last photo of my new rock lights working before the wiring caught fire due to a bad ground.
Image

A toyota with the hood up on the trail? You don't say?

Yup. I'd wheel it.
Image

Found this TJ more beat than mine. I have a few photos later.
Image

Applying the last contingency and sponsor stickers before qualifying.
Image

Good luck shenanigans.
Image

"In line" to qualify.
Image

More beat than mine? You decide.
Image

Probably more money in tires on this truck bed than my jeep is worth.

After installing new steering pump, we were trying to get the passenger side at full bump for testing.

After the engine hoist didn't work, we hung a fat guy off the car.

And had some more fat guys push.

Racecar all fixed up, we headed up to wrecking ball.
Image

Rudi again failed on the waterfall.
Image

But not due to a lack of trying. Wrecking ball waterfall has claimed ALL of the broken parts on my jeep in the years going down. Some year, someone will finally drive it up this marthafocker.
Image

So we winched him out.
Image

Josh got lined up.
Image

And drove up it like it wasn't there.

Tom fiddling with Dennis' GPS.

We woke up early AF to get a good spot at pit one. Kurt looking like a bearded hero.

I'm glad we got up early. There was lots of space, but it didn't last long.

Watching our boys mob through the desert.
Image

The pilot of this helicopter is bad ass to say the least.
Image

So this pit crew showed up in a rental car. They were FLYING down Bessemer Mine Road with the front tire flat, ruined and a "just ain't care" attitude. They came in with seconds to spare before their car got to the pits. A shot of them changing the tire.
Image

Pit 1.
Image

We were so excited to see Dennis and Anthony come through the desert side by side. Both teams we were pitting for were racing together. They were both in top 10 at this point.
Image

After both our cars came through 1, my job was to go back to camp and man the big radio with the course map and relay checkpoints and race miles to the other crews at main pit, and both 2A and 2B.
Image

Kurt enjoying his sandwich.
Image

Well, dennis was down 2 tires, so I got the call to rally a spare out to pit 2B. I hopped in the jeep and mobbed out there.
Image

Rudi tracking Dennis' whereabouts. Once he came in, we changed tires on the car, got him fuel, and got him out.

Shot of pit 2B.
Image

Looking up at the exit to wrecking ball I think?
Image

Tiffany and Gina chillin.
Image

So after Dennis and Larry came through, we noticed our car was moving slowly/not moving on the tracker. We couldn't get comms with them so I took a radio and went on a hike to get comms with the guys in the car.
Image

I got way up there.
Image

Image

After getting comms and relaying down to the pit, I started my hike down. Look at all the tiny little people down there.
Image

Back at camp after we threw in the towel.
Image

Anthony and Tom arriving back at camp.
Image

The only thing that broke on the race car all day. We just ran out of talent and timed out at race mile 118 of 137. It was such a bummer. The car was PERFECT all day, Tom and Anthony just ran out of steam on the rock trails. Out of 134 cars that started, only 12 finished.

For some reason at the campfire, I got this great shot of Kurt's beard.

Saw this on Friday morning.
Image

I'd wheel it.
Image

Cool artwork on this trailer.
Image

Last view looking north from Starfish Mt. before packing up and heading home. There were easily 100,000 people there.
Image

And looking south.
Image

Some guys got into trouble and had a dead battery on Turkey claw. I ventured up to help them.
Image

Getting close enough to jump this toyota.
Image

While I was in there another group showed up behind me and I couldn't get out. I took bonus lines and drove around everyone. It was Tom worthy.
Image

Cleaning up from the party the night before.

Apollo ready to go home.

Tom hooking up what we have dubbed as the "Starship Enterprise"

Hard to see, but this guy has a "Texas Jesus" sticker on his RV.
Image

We had to put narrower wheels on the trent fab to fit it into the Starship Enterprise. All we had lying around were these 42s.
Image

Ron loaded up.
Image

Someone put this race car in our living area.
Image

Rudi loaded up.
Image

Finally out of the dust and onto the highway.
Image

Stopped to check the loads.
Image

Anthony's brand new duramax on the left is super nice. But the engine isn't broke in so he gets crap mileage even with the 6 speed. Tom got about 7.5, Rudi and Ron averaged about 12 with just the trailers.
Image

Apollo again.

In Weed, picture of Shasta. Usually this time of year there is a boatload of snow down there.

It was really a great week.

We had ZERO issues with the race car. All the prep work and new steering pump really paid off.

For wheeler issues; My jeep with a broken coil spring and driveshaft; Chad's truck with a steering pump that we replaced on the lakebed, and cut a tire; Josh on race day was mobbing from pit 2B to 2A and hit a rock the size of a Volkswagen killing a wheel, tire, and lower control arm mount; Ron had a few steering issues that were no big deal and took out a brake line; Anthony killed a waterpump on the TF.

It was a great week wheeling. We get through so many trails it's hard to get out and take wheeling pictures when you are trying to run at the pace we do now.

For the race, we ran the desert section clean and were in the top 10. Once we got in the rocks, the guys were just exhausted from being hot and pulling winch cable all day. Tom got out and helped other teams instead of just sitting in the race car complaining. We made it to race mile 118 (top of spooners) before we threw in the towel. With only spooners and some desert to finish the race we decided it wasn't safe due to our headlights on the race car suck ass. We could have finished, but it wouldn't have been in time.

Thanks to the team for all the long weekends of wrenching on Chad's truck to get it down there. Rudi for towing my junk down and back, Dave and Kurt for picking me up at the airport. Kevin and Gina for the AWESOME food. Finally Dr. Anthony for making this all possible.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. Beg borrow or steal to get down there. It's totally worth it.
