Camp out starts March 16, but welcome to join in on the 17th. Driving the black dragon wash on the 17th starting around noon. It will have some challenging spots but if you give Jason Smurthwaite a wink he just may tug you on up. I suspect shovels, maxtrax and rock stacking will also happen along this trail. Canyon has a lot to offer as far as views are concerned so come have an adventure. Base camp in the swell will be decided on soon.
HERES’s paper work!!!!!!
OH cool.. a wash!!! I guess I should bring my 1/5 scale sand rail!!! … 😎

let’s go with this… if we all decide to change it up while there, then we’ll change.
I definitely won’t be picking on any buses, plenty of seat time in stock 2wd split buses in the swell. Owner of buses are fair game though 😂
Just popped the new old engine in the bus last night🤞🏼

I’ll try and figure out where that is…🧐🧐🧐🧐🧐. I guess I’ll need some sort of GPS…. 😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😁😁😁😁😎😁😎😎😎
What kind of motor is that? That poor bus…. From the bottom up….
Jetta vanagon split bay
I wonder how it identifies 😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁

Unfortunately I was not able to add another atrocity to the list of awful things I’ve done to this bus 😓 I decided to give the vanagon engine another shot, so it’s just another 2.1L waterboxer. Vanagon/split/bay.
I will be sending Christine the coordinates so she can help Paul figure out how to get there, maybe caravan from junction.
Right now I’d say it identifies as an ice cube.John JonesModeratorFebruary 23, 2023 at 6:40 amPost count: 11644
😎😎😎👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻. I’m excited! I’ve been to some parts of the swell but not black dragon area..
Are we moving along the trail each day and camp trail side / close and keep going the next day? Shasta style? Or is the trail short? Like an Ottinger tour? Camp at the same place each night and do different trails each day and return to the same spot??
Has wayner’s balls hardened back up enough to come out with us???😁😁😁😁❤️❤️🤫😁😁😁. He’s always fun! And usually has two or three other busses with him!

I’m asking all these questions cause I’m trying to keep your camp out at the top of the list😁😁😁😁 on my forums!! Maybe if we can answer enough unknowns for people maybe more will show up!!👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
I talked to Dan and Paul, I think we’ll be caravanning together 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

I mean we don’t really have a set plan. I maybe should get better at this, usually being just me my wife and my kids on these trips we just go out and see what happens while we are there.
The loose plan is to make it to camp on Thursday, drink some Guinness have some fire, maybe shoot some cans. Friday drive the wash. Saturday maybe check out some other stuff? I’ve wanted to see how the buses do on the devils racetrack. Unfortunately Jason still has a photo shoot with his bus in April and doesn’t want to risk roughing it up too much so the racetrack may be next time.
There May be snow, or it may be 80* early spring in Utah might give us both on the same day.
