I though I would be fine if I just followed the tracks. WRONG! had a couple of hard hits in one section of the washes, and for the most part did ok after that. Until i found the one off camber climb! it leans toward a nice part of the ditch, and was mostly stuck in it for a few minutes. I was finally able to get out of the wash, and get enough momentum to climb up and out of the wash. There were several times where I was seriously sweating it, and I had the windows open! ROFL. Got some probably good video, would have been better if I had pushed record on the second camera before the rocks. D'OH! I'll be working on the edit and hopefully have it posted tonight. It's gonna be embarrassing for me though. Killed the engine a few times, and was just a complete NOOB in the ditch.
You have a winch and were still sweating it? Scared of a little cold?

At least you had something to winch to. Wheelers pass was slick as hell today.

Nice vid Powr, but yeah, the entire time I was reading this thread then watching the video I was thinking "was he actually that stupid and went alone?!" yep.. end of the video confirmed it. What were you thinking?

It sure was great looking scenery though, reminds me of a great shot Jared hooked me up with last year.

My best friend is coming in town December 12th thru 16th and I wanted to organize, or join an already planned, run for one day that weekend on the 14th or 15th. I was hoping to hit a more complicated trail then Potato Ridge since Puck and I had good success on 3.5-4 rated trails last weekend. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!!

I looked up some pics and it looks like Logandale is a winner. I don't know the area at all so my next question is what's the elevation there and is there a possibility of snow?

I'm assuming since that is lower then us snow is unlikely. Anyone who knows the trails out there available that weekend? Thanks,

Matt

I'll have to see how things go between now and then and how that weekend's plans pan out but I'd possibly be up for something on the sunday the 15th up there with the exploder... Can't commit yet though. I don't know the jeep trails up there though, I only know the single track dirt bike stuff that's mostly on top of the ridgelines that most probably don't know exist. LOL

I know the area fairly well, but unless I get this fixed soon I'm not going anywhere

That's metal shavings on the magnet. I destroyed the planetaries in the Tera-Low...(I knew I would, but that's another story) They warrantied it so I will have a like new Tera-low 231 for sale very soon

I'm putting in a 241OR Rubicon case for now....mainly because a buddy had one laying around and I picked it up for a 1/3 cost of an Atlas, and it's way stronger than the Tera stuff it's replacing.
