Had an awesome time at our clubs annual pig roast this weekend! Somewhere around 600 people came and fun was had by all. I didn't get too many pics as I was busy taking kids on trail rides most of the day, but did find some that others took.

Scored the highest on the RTI ramp (which has to be the most badass RTI ramp I've ever seen!)



Rock Crawl






And then yesterday a bunch of us went out to our local spot. 7 trucks went in, only 4 on their own power. We were almost at the trail head draggin two of the rigs out, when this happened:



So we did this:



Git him the rest of the way out and then it was more of an ordeal to get him onto the trailer. Wasn't planning on rolling into my driveway at 10pm, but you never know what may happen on the trail...

What did you score on the RTI? I haven't adjusted my front bumps since the high lines, and the rear is still mega bumped so i'm in the low 800's or something dumb like that.

hard to tell, but looks like you have some more up travel in the front?

Not really sure. I just know I was at the top of the list. I really need to do a once over with my suspension, as I want to outboard and fine tune it to maximize up/down travel and whatnot, but it's been working really well and I've been waaay too busy wheelin'.

If it ain't broke, why fix it?

Sooo over the weekend my windshield had a little run in with a tree...



Awesome night of wheelin' tho. Did a few obstacles that I hadn't previously been able to make, so it was more badass in the dark!

Some pics from Saturday. Didn't wheel much since the group that I was with did the extreme trails and with the rain the day before the place was a bit slick, so I decided to just do more watching and know I'd get home under my own power. And it was a good call as it was not a good day for most of the group...

This section has gotten much worse in just a year. Three ways to go and all are tough.


Buggy broke his rear short side inner right here, 10 min into the day. Had to back it up out of there as the trail just gets 10x worse.




This spot was tough on all the rigs but this one, he just walked it. The guy behind him had a rough day too, broken RCV and getting out snapped his synthetic winch rope.

Yep, it goes on further than you can see in the pic, in 3 different ways most of which continue to get much tougher!

Place is awesome, hands down the best place in the Northeast. The red trails here are insane, boulders the size of cars are definitely take there toll on many rigs. But a lot of other really tough trails for rigs like me!

It also is one of the places that Ultimate Adventure went in 2010 and the have the trails they ran marked so its fun to follow it and see what they did, except now its much more difficult with how much everything has been dug out.
