It has taken me 2 and a half years to get my Zuk to the point where I felt ready to tackle Anaconda   7 of us gathered early Saturday morning off of Table Mesa Rd.  I took a moment to fix a steering problem that had been hindering me for a while, I had my pitman arm indexed wrong so I could not turn very well to the drivers side.  We pulled out of the busy parking lot about 10am.  There was a group of rigs going to Judgment Day and the Mesa 4 Wheelers were going to tackle the Terminators.  Before I forget, hats off to all those who participated in the Table Mesa cleanup last weekend, the area looked great!

Anaconda is a tight and twisty trail that snakes it's way thru the valley to the right of the Terminators.  It consists of a series of waterfalls, hill climbs and a few tight sections to squeeze thru.
