· Low Range Drifter
What I wrote on irate4x4. I don't think I need to modify the rig, but just take a different approach.
Takeaways in hindsight, we should have wheeled easy day 1 and got checked in and shaken down the rigs. That way we could have grabbed the key and been on the rocks as early as possible. We checked in and BS'd with staff and got instructions so we put first tire on Mammoth at 11am; which only left 5 hours before you should be off rocks and headed back.
The other thing would be to move to having spotters more quickly. I banged my way through junkyard and wasted time getting stuck, calling someone over, pulling cable to get unturtled, and then moving along. When whiterhino was outside helping to spot lines and adjust as it didn't work out, I made more progress later in the day than when treating it like the Rausch rock creek. I think 2 rigs spotting back and forth through sections would keep it moving. There's area you can just drive, but some it's pick your poison for what you have to get through.
