Its funny that the success of an offroad park can be gauged by how much stuff you break there. I think its the only buisness where if the customers break their equipment they want to come back. Haven't been there myself but am planning a trip with my friend on one of the two weekends its open in the fall.

I'm getting confused about the Frame one... This isn't fairly short one we're talkinga bout right? I made it through Python (I think that's the name), but got high centered two or 3 times. Had to winch forward about a foot each time. We were alone though... Perhaps if I had seen someone else do it before me I would have used more skinny pedal.

I think I need to do some maintenance before I can get back up there. I also need to get all the video I put together and on Youtube. It was raining the whole weekend I was there (awesome!).

Frame bender was the short one by the big mud area. There now is a frame twister that is a bit longer. I also have not found your bumper ends yet

Ha thanks Ron. I lost the other one at Bundy Hill. Chad found it though and stuck it in a tree. Everyone should start a busted parts tree or something.

ie the tree at Deal's Gap

Funny you should mention that, we finally started one a couple weeks ago. Been talking about it for a while. First item was a chunk of (bumper?) cut off one of the UA vehicles that's been laying around since.

Memories.

Python took out my tail lamp, but I'm glad that was returned to me. All but one little piece.
