Hi Eric. How does this work? Sign up in advance or can you just buy tickets at the gate?

Technohead 03-02-2013 05:04 PM

Hope to see you there.

Spring is in the air and this event is starting to shape up nicely. Very soon I will be posting additional details covering the trail ride options, vendors, raffle, and more. Stay tuned.

Looking forward to seeing you guys there!!

The event is now less than two months away so I will provide a brief update.

First, we have recieved several questions about pets. YES, dogs will be allowed provided that they are leased.

We plan to start getting the trails in shape next weekend and I will post some pictures soon.

The list of vendors is growing and we are collecting raffle items. Stay tuned for more information.

This event is now less than 7 weeks away!!!

We spent a day last weekend working on the trails and cut a new "difficult" trail option. Its pretty steep. We are going to require at least one locker, front/rear tow hooks, and airing down to 15 psi or less. Tire size of 33 or greater is highly recommended. Most of the obstacles have multiple lines with some harder than others. We will have rigs with winches stationed at all of these locations in order to keep things moving along. There will be second trail option for stock rigs and most likely a third trail that will also be suitable for less built rigs. The facility has an (insane) dirt hill climb but its going to be an event-day call.

Here is a picture of the venue taken from atop the hill climb:

Here are some pictures from the difficult trail. As everyone knows, pictures never do a trail justice. Our test guinea pigs were bouncing off the rev limiter to complete some of these climbs and had to winch a couple times. Once we run the trail a few more times and clear off the decaying leaves traction should improve:

These rocks are the "entrance" to the difficult trail. Any rig that cannot make it over will be redirected to the easy trails:

We are building a 30 degree RTI ramp which will be at the event:

This is going to be a day for the record books. Don't miss it!!

The hill climb will be an event day decision. If there is heavy rain in the days before the event then the hill climb will not be usable. Either way, we have trails out in the woods that WILL be open. Its going to be a GREAT day. Be there!!!

Yea I've been there when the base was under water! Quite a site seeing the starting line having to be pumped out while the crew kept the mud out of the starting line. I'm driving from dracut to Rumney on the 11th which is 105 miles one way so we will have to see how my jeep feels on the 18th but I hope to be there
