Great event guys!!!Ran smooth and seemed very organized. I was impressed!!! Dale put on a hell of a show..... Erin came damn close.... Was sad to see Mike R break before he really got a shot... Awesome rig! Coreys was close too.... Sure wish Johns McD's buggy was there to run it! Nice job!!!

X2 it was an awesome day just wish my Jeep would have been ready. It was my first time at the park period and it looks to be an awesome place to wheel. I should be up and running in a couple more weeks , so I hope to hit R&V soon. A big thanks to Rock Solid , Crawl magazine , Yukon gears, and the R&V staff for putting on a great event.

I had a great time, just wish I could of ran the bump and hustle . Pulled out of my campsite to head to race and my belt tensioner bolt broke off in the bracket leaving me with no steering, water pump or altenator. Ended up driving down the road to Lee's house and he helped me get the seized bolt out of the allumiun bracket . Literally pulled back into the campground as the race ended.

Then of course I made myself look like an idiot getting stuck on the tire and then rolling before ever making it to the slap. That ended my run at the bounty (not that I had a chance), so my attempt on the wall was just for show. Even if I could of made it, their wouldn't have been a payout.





BIG thanks to everybody working the event. Esc. Mike and Robert. You guys did a great job. Ron and crew . I had a great weekend.

Garry, way to go with the toyota! Can't say you didn't try....

Had a great time, great event and well run. Nice seeing everyone. Check out unemployed films.com for videos, Johns working on uploading them. He got great footage of Dales attempt, as well as everyone else.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=6y_yA8IcJ9A here's the only decent video I took. Hopefully it loaded ok, I don't have a real good internet signal at my house right now, let me know & I'll try again from my parents house later.

You were the only one who executed the perfect line on that first jump/hill on the obstacle course. You went right over on the far right and could take it with speed since you were already lined up for that corner at the bottom. well done! I would have loved to see a buggy with stickies and some motor try the bounty.

Thanks man. Just wanted to do it for the fun factor and because of the nay sayers. I was super stoked to make it to the slab. Only muffler carnage haha
