Great time! I had to do a Meijer run first, so I didn't get there until 130pm. Did my test passes, got multiple air on the last one, thought I was going to break everything!

Did rocks a bunch, had a blast.

My breaks were limited to a misadjusted doubler shifter (again, going to make different completely now) had to do the rocks in standard low range. Broke a piece of plastic off my hub switch.


Not me...

Nascar Jeep!!! Still the smallest rig I've seen make it through the tubes....even though you got winched out by my fourwheeler


Edit: And I saw Jim Burgandy rub his shiny rear fender on a tree in the twisties past the scramble area

If the winch is under 4000lbs, it doesn't count

Up near the front, in the sandy scramble area. I need to see if I can get a frame capture tonight. That last run hurt.
