We had an excellent run, 5 rigs. No significant breakage, no significant stucks requiring recovery, everyone had a good time and we got back pretty quick. All in all it was a wonderful day. The only breakage was Matt (Jacket) Ralston's exhaust tip on the first obstacle.

That was fun. It was great wheelin' with my kids for a change. Everyone did real well today. The trail was well worn on by others and seemed easier for the most part. Still some difficult areas and challenge. Which was fun.

That's for leading again Jeff!

Fun day. My Dad and Sam had a great time. Thanks Jeff for organizing and leading the group. Good to meet Alan and his family, and their sweet 80.

It's fun to need/use the front locker for a change. :)

Sam took most of these videos, so I apologize about the video quality. These are all on the 3rd obstacle which seemed much easier vs. last time we were up there on moto bikes.

Love the action of Jeff using the pivot point on his 40. Awesome...

Hahahaha:lmao:

Second year in a row using that same maneuver in the exact same spot with a similar result, crunching the side step/rocker in. I need to learn how to drive better :eek:

Funny, when I mentioned that I am still using manual steering and that I should do a P/S conversion one of these days, Alan's wife said that it must be like "Gold's Gym". I thought that was a good expression - definitely an upper body workout to do that trail with manual steering!:cheers:
