Here's a couple from Rattlerock. I got wedged in between 3 trees and high centered.



Then I had to winch out sideways and ended up rolling this 3 ft boulder up under my front axle and the whole lenght of my skid plate.





Chuck on Rattlerock



Here's a happy camper



Dar on Rail Trail



Flexin out a little on Rail Trail





Frank coming down the big rocks on Rail Trail. This would be awesome to do uphill.

Dar Howard. Really not even worth getting a pic other than to make fun of him so we didn't. He was turning around and dropped a tire into a rut & fell over. Nothing spectacular.

I was waiting for you to come to our camp so you could be my beer pong partner. I was stuck with silverxj.

I feel bad for you. I bent a rim Friday and spent my evening beating it back in place. Steel rims FTW. By the time I was done, it was pouring rain & almost my bed time.

Yes, I guess I should clarify. We ran R1........ which someone told us is the rail trail. I would guess it is because at the top it crosses an old railroad track.

Thanks Randy for the spotting. Out of the 4 in our group, only 2 made that spot. It must have been your supreme spotting that got me over it.

I'm sure we will wheel together again as soon as silverxj gets his organizational skills together.

CC, Thanks for posting the pics and for the DVD!! I got most of the pictures to work on my XP machine. I only had a problem with the first 20 pictures or so. The pictures turned out great!! Jiri should have the video ready pretty soon.

I am glad you had a good time and I hope to see you on another SMR run!!

How'd that new skid work out after rolling that boulder into it? Any real damage to it?
