I have way too many pics to post on the forum so if you want to see all of the shots or if you want the full sized images you'll have to head to Flickr http://www.flickr.com/photos/43437443@N00/sets/72157623866916022/.

Here are a select group of photos:

This doesn't look that bad; it felt ten times worse :oops:

That camera of yours takes some nice pics (especially the ones of that silver KJ). You got some really good shots. Can't wait to look through mine tomorrow and post up the good 'uns.

If not that, then:

the first KK to do Triple Whammy on its spare tire, or....

the first KK to do Triple Whammy with 5 people in it, or....

........ :wink:

Always nice to start a long day of wheelin' with a flat:
Image
Yep, my KK's driver's side rear MT/R shoe got a hole in it on the inside sidewall. That's why in all the other photos from Triple Whammy you can see I'm running on the spare....good thing I had an MT/R mounted on it too. Everyone got to see what its like to unload the entire back of a KK to get to the crank stud used to lower the spare from below a KK. :roll:

Meducan doing a little flex getting warmed up (on "Prelaunch Pad" I believe):
Image

Then onto "The Wedgy":
Pixeldzn shows us how it's done:
Image

After doing some flexing earlier, Meducan does some wheel stuffing:
Image

Image

Troy knows how to make it look cool 8) :
Image

After starting with too much lean, MtnLuvr straightens the KK up:
Image

Eyehatetofu commences "The Wedgy":
Image

Mel's JK flexes its solid axles piece of cake:
Image

"The Launch Pad":
MtnLuvr climbing "the Launch Pad".....sure did feel steeper than it looks here....although I can tell my front suspension is a little lighter than usual in this photo:
Image

Eyehatetofu after the hill descent and just about to enter "the Launch Pad":
Image

....and then nearing the top:
Image

Mel, wasn't it just before this when you were telling me how light you thought your front end would get on this type of obstacle?
Image
Slow and easy does it.

and then back down......
Meduncan:
Image

Cool change from having a "light" front end coming up to immediately having a "light" rear going down (as shown by my KK):
Image


My niece is always quick to pose while waiting on the Jeeps -- but my nephew in the background....well, boys will be boys :wink: :
Image

Some of the surrounding desert plantscape:
Image

Troy coming down the return leg of Skyline Drive:
Image
(never have to worry about losing a yellow Jeep in the desert)

Mel coming down part of the sand-laced trail:
Image

As usual, Troy's Yellow JK doesn't break a sweat:
Image

The KK's longer nose and tail, however, are getting frequent opportunities to "kiss" some local rocks:
Image

A large slickrock area for a scenic lunch break:
Image

Beautiful scenery:
Image

Ok, you can write your own caption for this one :lol: :
Image
....1..No, no one had been "drinking"
....2..Strange local gravitational effects?
....3..The making of some Michael Jackson video?
....?


Meduncan climbing down another ledge:
Image

Eyehatetofu working his KJ down one of the many un-named obstacles:
Image

I think this is about where, right after Meduncan asked "How am I getting down from this?", he asked "Why am I the lucky first Liberty in our line-up?":
Image

but he made it look cool climbing down:
Image

And then right after that, Troy guides Meduncan down through the tippy ledge:
Image

8) Cool under pressure:
Image

After Troy went, he came back to provide spotting to get the KK down these obstacles:
Image

I'm not certain, but this might have been one of the times I heard Mel say "its only plastic" :lol: :
Image
The longer front and rear of the KK, and at my lift height of ~ 2.5", certainly provided some extra challenge on this trail (above and beyond having kids and the weight of 4 other people and their gear with me).

Some nice local architecture:
Image

And now for "The Golden Crack" obstacle:

Can't beat the scenery as we all parked to walk-down "The Golden Crack" obstacle:
Image

Pixeldzn, our trail leader, again shows us how its done:
Image

Ummmm, Meduncan, is that wheel supposed to be that far off the ground? :wink:
Image

Meanwhile, my niece and nephew and their mom find a local inhabitant:
Image

The Troysterr spanning the crack:
Image

Eyehatetofu navigates his KJ across "The Golden Crack":
Image

Image

Image

Flexing to get the coolest shot:
Image

Mel shows how its done in a SWB JK:
Image

Nice front flex:
Image

Nice rear flex:
Image


Arches in the distance:

On the Gold Bar Rim trail:

Mel in his JK, with the front roof panels removed, cruising on the Gold Bar Rim trail:
Image

More beautiful scenery:
Image

Its getting late in the day and my nephew, during one of our stops for obstacles, wants to know if he can have yet another snack since dinner won't be anytime immediate:
Image

Getting the KK up one of the last rock climbs:
Image

Eyehatetofu up on a ledge as the sun lowers:
Image

Don't worry Mel, we'll wait for you......

Triple Whammy was a long day of wheelin but a scenic trail with plenty of opportunities to tune your driving skills and test your rig.

Wow those were some great pictures! I just did Fins N Things with my family this past summer in Moab. Although it was nothing compared to some of the stuff you all were doing!
