After careful consideration, we've decided to rent a Bobcat or equivalent and make a short road through the worrisome part. I was out there this week with a pickaxe, and it looks to me like dirt I can work with. Long as I avoid these huge rock formations.

I would be worried and exceedingly careful. Not just the angle to be considered. If the trailer or TV breaks traction and slides sideways it can result in a roll over at a lower than maximum angle when it catches. If the low side trailer wheels drop into a hole or soft spot it makes it worse. Not saying I would not do it, but those are considerations learned from a small amount of 4 wheel experience.

Ummm, not sure but I think those huge rock formations are actually the Rocky Mountains. Yes, I know. helpful information always appreciated.

Hope you guys are enjoying your dry land vacation :-)

We're calling it our "Tropical Vacation". After the 40 days on the catamaran, We just seriously needed a vacation from the tropics. But now we're seeing a forecast for Ft. Collins to get down to 27 deg. tonight, with a high on Saturday of only 37. Uh...we start getting cold around 70. It's been a great three weeks, but it's looking like Time to head back to de islands, mon.

I got a boat that needs work down there, anyhow.

Hey Gringo, sounds like you got this sorted out already with the impromptu road building. But another reason to not push your luck is you could roll the tire off the bead, damaging tires and wheels in an impossible position to change them.
