When is that?

I just looked it up. Sounds like a fun place. But sounds like a big group. I'd rather meet up with a few JF guys and run around there. I guess one of these days i need to join an organized run just to confirm it's not for me, or maybe ill enjoy it.

Great time wheeling today. I'm making a little video right now. I climbed and did some obstacles that I either wouldn't do before or that I never felt much confidence on. Needless to say I am VERY pleased with the rig right now. The stretch has really just transformed the rig into a great climber with a great departure angle... I never drug the rear going up or down anything today, and comfort and stability especially with my suck down winch was better than it's ever been. It was eye opening!

I honestly wasn't expecting this much out of the stretch. I've read from multiple sources that a stretch of this nature was borderline even worth the hassle. I've got to say, and I wouldn't say this if I didn't feel like it was true, it's worth the time, effort and money. Some of it's benefits may be a bit psychological in that you're doing things you COULD do before, but that you just did not feel comfortable doing. Having said that I've already done 3 obstacles that I've had the opportunity to do many times before that my rig just simply could NOT do before without being reckless. So I say to all of ya'll that have a well supported rig on 35's.... do it!
