Let's go! Basically we'd drive up into the hole to get past the tree on the right. Then turn hard driver and back your left rear tire up onto the bank. This allowed you to get the left front tire into the middle of the track, just to the right of the big hole. Then it was straight forward hugging the tree on the right. This is where you would feel like you were going to roll off to the right. It took a little momentum and commitment and as you came up you stayed kind of 45* to the right of where the trail would normally take you.

Josh, I recognize that it was snotty last weekend and things have changed. It probably was NOT doable in those conditions. But, one never knows do they? My reason for this discussion is when someone says it's impossible and needs to be fixed is total bullshit. I've seen multiple people try an obstacle and never make it. Then someone else comes along and hits it just right and makes it look simple. I'm not saying I could have done it, however, I am saying it's been done, and recently.

Now the next thing........... RON, WE NEED MORE OF THESE!!!

Had a blast riding SHOTGUN!, well actually back seat passenger. Glad I brought my bibs out, We used them to keep a bit warmer in Tim's ZJ when it was no longer wanting to steer and sat in the woods for 2 hours. Yes Tim found a way to get in my pants.

the line is to the left were the people were standing.drive the left tire up the bank and it gets you over the lip,then back up and hit it.goes right up.i showed 6 different well built rigs how to make it and it works.we did it with a foot of water and mud in the hole and we have drove it dry. should be fixed...that is just a dumb statement! learn how to be creative.
right were colin was standing on the second video is the way we make that spot.run the tire all the way along that bank and it puts you right on the line.

Tried that and got denied, to slick. But like I said it kept shifting to 2nd gear and loosing power. Trans is all fixed now though (I think). Time to try again, DON'T FIX IT! Its NOT broke!
