Yes Larry, as I have said... I have been through Matomi many times. It was never as blocked for me as it is now. The last photo I added is from 2006.

I cannot drive over or between these:

I will drive up from Hwy. 5 and watch you come down the wash into the Narrows. Then go visit the arch. Good luck, you will need The Force!

It's what you CAN'T see that gets you!
I wasn't going to do something that would cause anyone to need to rescue me. Going solo makes one make better decisions... it's either that or possible death!

You also could have used your front locker or let more air out of the tires. But, now your friend can brag how they winched you!

You have to use your winch whenever you get the chance-----------that's the only way to justify the mega-bucks you spent on it. I know, as I have a Warn 9500 Winch that fits all 3 of my 4x4's. (-:

The track shown is the far side of that big rock. Not in front of it.
in my experience a rig with 32" tires will not touch bottom.

"Can a pair of 4x4 Jeeps make it thru Matomí??"

Sure. A Jeep can go as far as a support vehicle, supplying spare parts, can go. But no farther.

I suppose one could set up, in advance, a series of caches of spare parts that are likely to fail. The caches would have to be rather large, though.

It's low angle, flat, wide sandy path. Even a paunchy knuckledragger could hike it barefoot, or if he has tender feet (don't they all?) in slippers (flip flops) :lol:

I love the couch quarterbacking. Just do it, but take photos... and no, 32" tires aren't tall enough.

Going solo is sometimes disasterous. I wonder how parted-out this Land Cruiser is..

What I am not understanding is with all your winches, nobody (especially the first to get by it) pulled the Land Cruiser ahead out of the way to the wider, more level spot just ahead. Perhaps because of steering wheel lock or no brakes?
Why bother to conceal the license plate of the abandoned SUV?
