In case no one has ever done the Lion's Back in Moab here's a great video to watch. This guy gets challenged to do this obstacle in his Jeep for nothing more then $10. He does it but is scared as anything. I can't wait to get to Moab. I think I might pass on this one or might try it. It's awesome to watch. Lion's Back Video is 18 minutes 20 seconds long but it worth the watch. The guy gets out there and gives ya a great view from the top of the thing and how narrow it really is. He also hated having to turn around on the thing and then head back. The last part of the thing going down looks hella steep. My guess is probably at least 45 degrees.

And I quote "you can do this... ...because you have balls of steel, and you are out of your mind"

That was awesome.

He even said "I cant believe I paid $10 for this, i'm insane!"

Just saw a comercial saying a volve xc90 is buried somewhere in the US in a container. You find it, you own it.

I know! i am going to the dealer ship tomorrow to get a map, the closest dealership here is 1:30 away. so it sucks. I think the comercial says "somewhere in the WORLD" hopefully the world means US only

Yeah right it is probably buried in some remote jungle island with no natural inhabitants. Once you find it you have to pay a crew to dig it out, then pay a container ship to ship it to the US. Well that would be my luck!

OK, I know this post is way old but just thought Id update everyone who wants to run Lions back.

Cant do it anymore. Sorry, its closed. That area was sold to a land developer who does not want to open it due to liability issues

That's my favorite, and the "Here's $10... I'd like to die." Funny how the mind works when aggitated.
