hahah, wise ***. I still have to get that fixed up.


basically, i was attempting to go Up yellow jacket, was going going, wanted to take a different line, so i backed up, a rock snagged my stupid low hanging exhaust pipe, and twisted it up real good under my rear axle and into my tire, like a big fun pretzel.



nothing a little man power and bailing wire cant fix tho.

still one of my fav. trails.

21 and 22 are good to. snake bite is awesome as well.

The Scrambler (actually a stretched YJ frame and aluminum cropped scrambler tub) was Peterson's 4 Wheel & Off-road's "10 Best Rigs of the Year" in '04 or '05 I think. They did an article on three of our club trucks, then that one was in again as the '10 best'.

It's a club, so yes, we usually go in a group. It's a lot (LOT!) more fun than just 1 or two trucks.

If you have to stack 2 or 3 rocks that's fine but if you're building a ramp you need to be on a different trail. Please don't ruin the challege for others, there isn't a lot of hard stuff at the park.
If you have to move anything to go somewhere, its not really doing it...

There are definetly rocks on all trail levels but most of the difficult spots on the green and blues have bypasses. Most in these albums are on greens & blues with a couple blacks

That's not the point. Stacking is not about personal achievement, it's about group progress. Given that someone already can't get the next 3' ahead (can't make it), there are only a couple options. Since turning around and going back is not practical, it's then winch/snatch, or stack. My group usually picks whatever is easier for the group to get done (and undone), to get the person that 3'.

I'd have to say 22 and trail 5 where my two favorites from that day. A slightly larger tire would have been great on 22.

i agree, nothing wrong with stacking, im sure we've all had to do it sometime or another in the past to get over a certain obstacle.

i think point at hand though is if you do get out and stack for somebody, by all means please un stack before you leave.

I always unstack after ramping up some rocks, it's really not that difficult, just pick up the rocks and chuck em in either direction.
