Default R&V New Trail

Snapped a few pics of a section of the new "Hump" trail Ron is creating for us out at Rocks and Valleys-













Apparently Bill was out on the trail earlier using it for its originally intended purpose....



"Ah yes, the sweet smell of fresh snapper. Can't resist it. Thanks Jill!"

The hundred yards or so is pretty nasty. We're just getting started though. Lots of space left on this one to develop. Word is Ron has his hands on some good concrete for obstacles on the straight section we just cut through the woods....

Time to add some stuff to the "playground" area too. Lots of open space and lots of "bare", sloped ground to work with.

na, not really the only down fall so far is the tight twisty stuff . with a welded frount and 122'' wheel base! going to put a locker in front for june 4th so hopefully no more 3 point turns at twisted race. as far as the hill climbs look out. went up the climbs 2/3 that were rutted out and then cut new runs to the left and right

yes we were! close to 2 hours or better by the time everyone ended up getting out, the second wrangler through after the smaller cherokee ended up busting of all of the bolts on the rear axle at the hub on his full floater and had to go the rest of it in pretty much 2 wheel drive because of the open front diff. Cool trail, I'm glad I didn't bring my jeep along, I had a better strataEy, ride along and let them bust their stuff!
