Once we all got to the top, this came cruising up the hill like it was NO problem, looking at us like "what's the big deal??"

...awesome
Some of us old gray beards do have a clue.

Better than any of mine I have taken over the years from the same angle. The lighting was really friendly that day too. Hey Corbett, thanks for leading for us!!!



That rear bumper looks similar to my 4x4 Labs, except the spare is vertical instead of angled with the top closer to the rig than the bottom.
