Default Penrose-Independence last Sunday

First impressions: WOW! When people say this is one of the harder, more technical trails they aren't kidding. At least thats how I felt when I saw it

We ran it with 3 buggies, Trevor's FJ40 and the Gecko. I had just swapped the 39's onto the Gecko the weekend before and I am really glad I did.

The trail is only like 1/4 to 1/2 mile long but it took us 3 hours to get through it and the folks who had ran it before said that was excellent time. There was no breakage or major carnage on any of the rigs but there were a lot of close calls. Everyone had to pull the winch lines out (even the buggies) at least twice plus at the exit. It had rained the night before so the trail was muddy in spots making it a little tougher than normal.

Here is one picture from where you first drop into the trail. Doesn't show much, I'll post up more pics when Dee downloads her camera.
