I don't know who lead the trail for you guys but not unlike you I've walked over Jason's Rock the two previous years in my 80 without drama. In fact any 80 on 315's with protection can do it especially with a good spotter.

We had a blast and enjoyed wheeling with the Rising Sun folks on Thursday running Dugan's Prospect.

It's a drag that we didn't get a chance to catch up but now that WR is big and badass we aren't running the same trails anymore. I'm sure we'll cross paths again soon.

Trev,

they run really hard stuff for the BHCC.

Ben mentioned flat nasty. They run Hal Johns which is the quintessential Rock crawling trail in the Black Hills.

We should talk about what I mentioned to you last week. I guarantee a good time.

I only got to run 1 day because of work and a breakdown on the way up, but ICEMAN was AWSOME!! what a fun trail. Reminded me alot of the upper part of spring creek. Black Hills wheeling seems to be summed up in one word..... ROCKS ! And as Kevin later corrected me.. Rocks that MOVE... (or RocksThatMove for the one word version)

I will go again! i had a GREAT time, even if it was short! Thanks to all who went and made it such a fun run

Trev,
Iceman is a fun moderate trail. There is actually 5 or 6 spots on it that are rated 5 but the majority of the trail is a 3.5-4. I ran with the buggies on Flat Nasty on Saturday. We had a blast! We finished the normal FN with 5 of the 8 rigs that went in. Us 5 then took on the optional upper section and 4 of us finished that. Nearly every obstical of the upper section was as big as stuff on Hal Johns! I took damage to my passenger side A piller, but it is very fixable. Big shtuff!

Ige's friend was a little wobbly taking our picture, but nothing like a family picture at Mt Rushmore

If the picture was clearer, we could start a "Ige strikes again thread"

Maybe pictures of Ige in front of all the National Monuments saluting

Oh well, she is part of the family so its great having here in our family picture
