    On Saturday we ran Gold Mountain and a section of John Bull. There was a Jeep carnage (broken track bar) on the first obstacle of the Gold mountain that delay 2 hours so we arrived at John Bull gatekeeper and hung out.
    Entering Gold Mountain and look back to Baldwin lake

    At some point the driver of this Jeep (40" tire) couldn't make it thru the first obstacle of GM and broke the track bar. We ran right behind him so there was 2 hours delay to get his truck off the obstacle.

    My truck made it without any issue, I ran 31" tire on my Tundra

    We didn't stop to take any photo on the John Bull section. Here is at the JB gatekeeper

    I met RDP member (recognized him with t-shirt MBGA) at the JB gatekeeper (forgot his screen name). We talked little bit about boating.

    Great set up with the tents. Makes for great memory with your son. Impressive with those long wheel base trucks. Looks like you have lockers in the axles?

    Looks like a good time. I've run most of those trails back in the day in my 4Runner on 35's. Always a good time.

    Looks like fun. We will be up this weekend with a couple Jeeps. Wheeling, boating, hiking and drinking. The temperature will definitely be better than Havasu this weekend.
