Bouncers yes, they do it for the show.

for us low budget buggy/truggy guys on Tons and big tires throttle is not always the answer.

I was over nearly every trail in harlan last october in a leaf sprung toyota on 37's, hardly a buggy and it went up everything we attempted, which was pretty much everything but the actual rock gardens.

I have no problem with that at all. Crawl what ya need to get the job done. I have problems with the buggies that run trails that are to narrow for their full width axles and then throttle their way through just digging huge ruts & throwing boulders into the middle of the trail.
I'm guessing you went for fall crawl? Usually the trails are in good shape before any event. My main issue is with the throttle junkies....

They are keeping them well maintained. Right now it is mostly atv/utv trails out there and we are working on more jeep trails. At 7000 acres there is more than enough room for all rigs to have trails suited to them. I actually would like to see some of the bigger buggy's come out and open up some trails, they are good at doing that.

Last weekend had a big hill climb event here, I didn't get to go but I heard it went well, they opened up some new hill climbs and ran some old ones.

If anybody is interested please pass the word along about this place, we desperately need as many jeeps going out as possible to make new jeep trails and find good obstacles, there out there, just not been found yet.
